  • the BEST cpu/mobo cooler!

    Ok. I was running at 143F, (my cpu has a natural hotter core) and was reaching
    150F at times. I took off the side, and moved my TINY little fan, blowing into my case. It went from a constant 141F to 116F in a matter of 3 minutes or so FLAT.

    Here's the pic...

    As you can see the blue line (the threshold) is at ~150F. It was VERY close to it, then the drop. That is soo awesome. I need better circulation in my case :P

    it's since dropped to 114F

    just.. wow :P

    I assume you are talking about some kind of desk fan? I did the same thing recently to determine that I needed a better case. My original one had crappy airflow.

          My CPU was running at 53c, way too hot! I just got a new case and it now runs at 49c at max gaming levels. Newegg always has great deals on cases for less than $50.

                Oh, ok. I thought maybe you had a particular reason, as I never would have thought that was too hot... I was afraid that I needed to change my standards for CPU temp when I upgrade.

                  anything under 70 is fine

                  i dont like my cpus over 50c tho...thats because overclocking AND temps that high = bad

                    Yeah, I've always set my BIOS alarm to start beeping at 65 and to shut down at 70... Of course, I don't overclock.

                      from about 50c onwards, the cpu starts to loose life. which in itself isnt a problem when its still going to last 4 ish years at that. but with overclocking the effect multiplys

                      thats why a CPU i overclock lets say 20% is going to die faster, but since i keep it at 40c, a cpu running at 70c will infact die faster than mine......

                        You say this like running it in the 40s is going to allow it to run forever... The fact is, a CPU has a specific life that is almost always longer than a gamer is going to be using it, regardless of the stable temperature that it's run at. Once you get up in the temperatures that are going to drastically shorten its life (like it's gonna die on you right now), then you're not running a stable system anyway...

                          exactly thats why i dont understand these "anti overclocker" guys

                          if a cpu is going to last 10 years (at least) then whats wrong with overclocking it 50% and reducing its life to only 2 years? You will probably replace it in that time anyway...
