Hi everyone. I have the QuadCore AMD Phenom II X4 B55 for a couple of weeks now, and today I have bought it also a new case (a better newer one, with three fans) and a new 500 w source with two fans. these might not be something extraordinary, but they certainly beat a 4 year old case and a 5 year old 450 w source i ahd before.
anyway since I had bought the cpu and new as rock mainboard, the cpu usually idled at 35-37* C. Since I installed it in the new case, at first it ran normally as before, but after a short while it went up at over 40 degrees, and now it?s idling at 40-50 degrees.
actually different apps give me different results:
OC tuner: 48 degrees
CPUThermometer: shows a temperature per cores 1-4 22-24 degrees
Bios also shows a temp between 45 and 50 degrees C.
Meanwhile all programs show the cpu fan spinning at 3000 rpm
How can i find out if this is accurate and why it has so suddenly and so soon increased so much? I must mention that I tried using the old case again and it remained the same.
Sorry if this seems like a dumb question. Did you have to remove your heat sink off your motherboard to install it into your new case? If so, did you remove the old Thermal grease, clean processor and heat-sink and apply fresh thermal grease? If you did that try to do it again and see if that works. Sometimes the smallest contamination can cause problems with heat transfer.
Perhaps a new heat-sink is in order?
I bought and use a CM Hyper TX-3 on a 1090t Phenom II x 6 and it dropped my load temps by 11 C.
What's your load temps BTW?
