Mines is 38 Idle and reaches 43-44 on full (and I mean full) load. I didnt add the artic silve, now I'm wishing I did, but it means taking that hsf off and quite frankly I cant be arsed!

I use a Zalman! But my case is also beeg, so that also contributes.

I have a Lian-Li PC-71 with Zalman CNPS7000Cu Cooler!

Blaze, thats definitely higher than most I have seen, but the bottom line comes down to, is your system stable? If it is, then no problem. It all depends on your comfort level. I can get my cpu temp down to 24-25c using cool and quiet. Without it I am still in the mid 30's, idle. I have yet to see above 40c under load. I have great case cooling and a big case, that helps a lot. My ambient right now is ~25-26c.

May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
And the rains fall soft upon your fields.
And, until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.

What programs do you use to determine your CPU temp? I have the eMachines T6000 from BestBuy which is an AMD64 3200+. It did not come with anything at all to tell the temp... thanks... Van

Never mind, did some reading and found SpeedFan; works well on the eMachine T6000.

Mine is pretty much 44 with a range of 43 to 47.

Temps are very dependant on the motherboard used.

Even if the sensor is claimed to be on-die, the readings are done using the motherboard and its bios algorithms.

For example, the exact same chip using exact same voltages had temp differences of 10+ degrees Celsius on k8n pro compared to an50r.

So, don't get all worried if your temps are at 44 or even 50 C. If it's stable, that's most important.

I just heard from eMachines support and they agree with the last poster... 30 to 70 degrees C is not uncommon and should not be a concern. Thanks to all...

this is what i dont understand! i am using a heatsink that is better than the normal official one (silentboost k8) and is copper, i have a xaser 3 case with 7 case ffans on it, 2 extracting from the cpu area and 2 blowing onto the cpu area, 1 at the top extracting and 2 infront of hard disks, and then 2 psu fans and i get dam well high temps wiv all dis gear!!! wots goin on??

could it be my thermal paste? im using asaka silver paste

Hi guys,

I am new here, just built my new AMD 64 3200+ system with MSI K8T Neo FIS2R.

My temp reading as i type is 48C (reading through Core Centre) - it goes from 45C - 49C

Looking at the other messages it looks like mines a bit high.. should i be worried about this? all the fans are running fine.

Any help would be appreciated!

Cheers

I'm getting temps of about 37 Celcius Idle and 49 Celcius floored. With cool'n'quiet installed it dropped down to 32 Celcius idling. This is in a LianLi PC-60 case with an Antec Truepower fan plug connected to the roof exhaust fan and the rear fan disconnected. I'm also using the stock retail heatsink. So I'd say your temps are pretty reasonable. I probably wouldn't panic unless you're getting close to 70 celcius.

I built a 3200 system using a Zalman all copper quiet heatsink W/artic silver 5 between cpu and heatsink, an antec sonata case w/ 1 intake fan and 1 exhaust-both at very low rpm for low noise, and my average temps are between 29-33 idle and 33-43 under full load.

Your temps are perfectly fine. I wouldn't worry about a 50C under load temp, really.
