I just pieced this computer together, speedfan 4.42 keeps giving me high reading for GPU and CPU when I am finished with the game, which I expected, but not this high... my idle temp is 31C, normal usage is about 34C, gaming used to set my computer up to 47C, for the past 2 weeks it has been getting worse, 47C 48C 49C...... just now it hit 60C for both GPU and CPU, I've been done for about 5 minutes and the GPU is at 34C and the CPU is at 50C (Temp1), Not sure what Temp3 is but its 43C, HD0 is 30C and Core is 33C... Anybody know why it's getting hotter all the time? The room is steady temp, I keep the case blown out...
specs on the system:
AMD Phenom II 1090T x6
MSI 890GXM-G65 Motherboard
4GB Corsair XMS3 DDR3
Gigabyte GeForce GTX460 1GB
1.5TB Western Digital
650W Corsair power supply
Coolermaster Centurion case (factory fans (1 120mm intake, 1 120mm rear exhaust) leaving 2 120mm slots on the side, and 2 120mm slots on the top)
OS: Windows XP 64Bit/Windows 2003 Server
I am planning on putting some more fans in after the holidays...
What is the maximum safe operating temperature, and are these the true temperatures of the case? Thank you for your time...
I have never trusted the temp readings from SpeedFan to be reliable.
Suggest using HWMonitor and the 30 day free trial version of AIDA64.
Putting two high performance 120mm exhaust fans on the top of the case will improve airflow.
Also, I recommend getting two 120mm intake fans for your side panel as well (for the GPU).
Getting a decent aftermarket CPU cooler and high performance TIM like OCZ Freeze of MX-2 will help as well.
