Yep, you're right. My CPU runs way hotter using TAT than Prime95...
AMD 64 X2 3800 @2.5/1.4v/32c/44c
I have added a line asking people to use TAT if then can.
The reason I haven't added anything to the thread is I don't feel like downloading some program to see what my load temp is. I already have Super_Pi I don't feel like getting another.
Plus as long as my system is stable with what I do I don't care if it runs hot. For example my machine at work:
CPU: AMD Athlon XP 2800+ (Barton) , 2.09 GHz
Okay, fair enough that you don't want to download programs.
If you have any other way to read idle and load temps, feel free to use them and post. At this moment, because we're not asking for screenies, anything goes.
That was with Asus PC Probe.
With PC Probe II, on a A64 X2 3600+ 1.9Ghz AM2 with stock hsf but with AS Ceramique it idles at 31C (25C ambient room temp) and under full load on both cores with SuperPi it climbs to 46C.
Interesting note, when I put that X2 system together I knew it wouldn't ever be pushed hard so I thought the stock thermal material would be sufficient. I placed it on without much of a problem, the heatsink did shift a bit as I was trying to get it latched down but nothing bad. During the Vista install at the first reboot I entered the BIOS to make sure it wasn't going to try and boot off the DVD again and while in there the CPU was at 63C. So I got out of there and powered off and cleaned that crap off and put some Ceramique on it and had a huge drop in temps obviously.
When I took the stock off there were no obvious 'flaws' in the paste, so I have no idea wtf was wrong.
On a side note I like Ceramique much better than AS 5.
I have a AMD 3800x2 @2.16GHz and it runs 40C idle and 49C underload. Can we have one of these topics about Videocard temps or are we allowed to add them in here, Yes I do see where it says Your "cpu" temps. Just a thought... anyway my vid. temps are 56C idle and 95C underload
Well, given that these databases require huge number of people participating to actually have any value, and the limited participation so far, PLUS the fact that there are way more selection of video cards than CPUs, I don't think there would be any point having video card temps here....
Besides, you didn't really mention the video card you're using....
I'll add your CPU temps anyway. (BTW, please read first post on how to post your temps, make my life that much easier, thanks )
i use mbm5 to check my temps and for my cpu it can vary a lot because i put a bfg 6800 gs oc in recently and it's upped my case temp massively but i'll post what my temps are usually anyway.
Athlon XP-M 2600+ Barton@2GHz/stock for amd athlon/1.56 (stock)/36-38/43-45
case temps can vary between 28 and 38 C so obviously blowing hot air onto a hot heatsink doesn't cool it down much but i'm going to look into some zalman cooling for cpu and gpu.
that case temp is with 4 case fans as well, 1x 120mm and 3x 80mm
o.O, a mobile processor, the first on the list
yeam man lower temps and voltages with the same performance, sounds good to me
i dunno what make and stuff my heatsink and fan are but they came with the pc, but they're not by amd i don't think. just some random aluminium h/sink and a 60mm fan that goes at 5000rpm
i used to have an amd athlon 1.33ghz so it might be what coems with that
my mobo's old enough to still be socket a haha, i do have a desktop pc but the cpu fits and is supported so it's all good
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3800+ (Venice, 2.4GHz stock)
Multipliers:CPU Multiplier locked, HTT free but unused.
FSB: +17MHz (Total 217)
Final Op. Freq: 2.618GHz
Please do read the first post on what information to add, and also the correct way to post it. Your post does not have all the information required, and so has not been added to the list.
Thanks for posting, but please add the necessary information.
Just a little update on my temps since I have a new CPU cooler.
I guess you could add 10C to my CPU temperatures as well - it's around 40C idle and 80C load now.
amd 2400+, no overclock, idle 48C, full load 55C, case temp 18C
I'm sorry I cannot add the last 2 replies because of the lack of information.
Not to mention the wrong format.
I don't really want to assume that you're using stock components unless you specifically said so. Same goes for the voltages and speeds. There is no need to specify these if you haven't changed them, just mention "stock".
remember, format is:
CPU@speed/Cooler/Volts/idle_temp/load_temp - Your_name
four case fans
all are stock
hello again, CMH
i don't know why so many replies are just so wrong (format etc) but obviously not everyone on techspot owns as much as us haha
and the other guys who got it right, of course
amd firstname.lastname@example.org,Zalman-CNPS7000B-Cu LED,stock,48C,55C
sorry for my last post
Yeah... well it's a minor update. Both temps have dropped 3C because I actually cleaned the heatsink of dust. So its now,
A64 X2 email@example.comGhz/Stock/Stock/34C/46C - Nick Lee
E6600 at 3.46GHz / Tuniq Tower / 1.48 Vcore / ? / 70
I think when it was at idle it was 39c with the mobo sensor (Tcase) that reads 56c now that the core is ~70. It's alway at 100% load.
i've just fitted my pc with a zalman 7000B al-cu so now my details etc are Athlon XP-M 2600+@2GHz/Zalman CNPS 7000B Al-Cu/Stock(1.56V)/34/38 which is a lot better than before
