i'm very new here, but i just wanted something about my processor. here's the specs:
-AMD Athlon 64 3700+ San Diego (Socket 939 2.2Ghz, not overclocked)
i want to know the maximum temperature please.
i checked on the Packard Bell website, and they says it's 71 degrees Celcius, is that the right maximum temperature?
i want to know because i could turn down that 120mm fan behind my computer (it came with my Antec Sonata 2 case, 3-speed fan, set on medium, but i want to set it on low, more quiet.)
my processor usually heat up to between 56-58 degrees when i play a game (Unreal Tournament 2004, RF Online, other big 3D games like Second Life...), and on idle, it's around between 43-45 degrees.
note that i'm using the ThermalTake CL-P0200 heat-sink + fan (very good dual-heat-pipe heat-sink and quiet fan @ 2000rpm)
thanks for helping me with this!
