Hello !!
I have just fitted water colling to my cpu.the temp is about 46c normal and when under strain ( playing demanding games) about 53-56c. Is this good? I have a amd 3200xp chip, raddion 9800xt 256 graphics, 1mb ddr 400htz mem amd a thermaltake case with 7 fans. the internal temp is about 32 c. the problem i have is the heat exchange is in the top so i not quite sure if it is getting enough air flow to cool the chip? what are the temprature norms of the AMD chip.

Thanks for the time Mark

My 3200+ runs at 48c to 53c depending what I'm doing(this is on MBM5).The BIOS temps always read more,as much as 7 or 8 degrees.

Can you not put the reservoir in the bottom of your case where the temps would be lower?
