  1. Actually, it just dropped to 42C. :eek:

    I don't know if I trust ASUS Probe or not, the diode for my baybus, which reaches into the main part of my case, reads 18.4C.

    I have a really cheap HSF too. My Volcano 9 should be coming sooner or later...

    I included UD into the pic to show that that temp is full load.

    Anyway, post your temperatures here, or share a story of a record low.

    Vid card is currently running @ 34C. The fan on it isn't running either! (I "modded" it by replacing the meager 40mm with a 5k RPM 60mm fan...It was buzzing very loudly, and I haven't gotten around to checking it out yet.)

    41C? Maybe...

    Edit: apparently the attachment didn't work, but my CPU was @ 43C.

    And it's a 2100+ Palo if I haven't rubbed it in your face enough...

    Heh. I exit UD and what do I get? Even more sweet lovin' :cool:

    Ok, I'll shut my window now :haha: :rolleyes: :dead:

    My computer is not that cold :blackeye:
    But it's because the app is designed for BP6 and I have BD7. You might think that 54C is a lot but maybe we should think about noise, too? ;)

    Whilst my own PC isn't as cold, it is far quieter for sure ;).

    My PC is not loud. I mean, it's loud enough so that it kinda bothers me when I try to leave it on overnight, but that's all.

    My comp obviously ain't that cold, considering it's like 80 degrees in my room and about 70 outside ATM. I also use stock cooling for this rig; Athlon XP 2000+ Palomino.

    Currently after an hour of playing NWN, UT2003, BF1942 and Serious Sam, as well as working on some distributed computing here.

    I would like it. Hehehehe. Those Koolance cases are uber-cool. My next case upgrade will probably be one...Too bad I just got a new case :(

    I would like to do it as well, but seeing as how I lug my rig around quite often (to my friend's LAN parties and such), it may put some strain on myself there. <- Quite a downfall. :dead:

    My 286 8mhz (in PC/AT) runs cool enough to touch at 100% load.

    o_O Even my old Celeron 700 and P3-600 don't even run that cold at load... well at least for now. ;)

    Current temps. for other rigs:

    P3-1000 (Socket 370 FCPGA) : 38 idle, 45-46 load
    Celeron 700 (Socket 370 FCPGA) : 34 idle, 40 load

    hey i have a msi k7t turbo
    the cpu load temp is 123'f and idle is 114'f
    i dont have a case fan and was wondering if a case fan would do anything or would i be better getting a cpu fan
    i know this question is stupid but i just dont know much about cooling and what the temp of a pc should be...........o ya AMD 1800xp+ is the processor
    built this rig myself:grinthumb

    Bloody American! Celsius!!

    Farenheir to Celsius: F-32/1,6

    Celsius to Farenheit: Cx1,6+32

    So 123f-32/1,6=56.875C, and just to be sure you are right you can now go the other way, 56.875x1,6+32=123f...

    The Athlon 1.0 (35 idle - 42 load) and 1.2's (36 idle - 45 load) in the office never exceed 45C full load, all year round - all on stock cooling, cramped mid-tower cases - prob because of all the A/C... as for the P4 1.6A, i've never really seen this thing go above even 35 full load - runs extremely quiet as well (Dell)...

    When idle
    CPU Temp: 51c
    Board Temp: 42c

    Personally, i still think that 51c is a nice temperature for my cpu. AMD processors generate more heat than newer intels.....my cheap PSU is making alot of noise and generates lots of heat, btw just switched back to my old 250w PSU!

    AMD XP 1800+ (1.53ghz) @ 1.68ghz, Volcano 7+ @ 6000rpm, and Arctic Silver 3, 120mm case front intake. Room temp is about 20*C (69*F I believe).

    Idle = 32*C, 89*F

    Full load = 34*C, 93*F

    Yeps...thats the way to go IMO,
    ...i just started designing my CPU waterblock, and i will be watercooling CPU,GPU(ram and core)and NorthBridge

    Im hearing great things from watercooling, not only amazingly low temps, but also, almost complete silence....ill be using an 80mm on the radiator which puts out only 9db, and all in all, gonna cost about £80, which is very cheap considering the results, and it being only around £30 more than the SLK-800.(best Air-Cooling product available)

    Also...is a great long term investment, as i will save in the long run!

    Consider it people

    mine is really cold, after a tornado fan upgrade that is.
    Ambient air temp is 23 C

    Board - 23.2 C
    CPU - 41.9 C
    Power - 46.4 C

    that's at almost full load, at full load cpu get's up to around 43 C.
