Windows 7: Safe CPU Temperatures? running from 9C-24C is it too cold?

In my earlier post I suggested how a Tcase reading (An Estimate) could be less than ambient. The estimate is crude and can obviously be wrong when Tcase is less than ambient. Tcore readings are a different matter when they read lower than ambient.

Do a proper test and download Real Temp then run their rigorous stress test and post those readings.

Your test is outdated and does not yet support my Newer Processor? I know my temps are right because they were higher before I put this fan in the front of my case, they stayed around 30-40C before the fan so basically my question is solved. but I did try the test you suggested and it does not support my processor.

I threw a heavy load at it with Hot CPU Tester and every core ran at 100% 3.7GHZ, it got up to 40-43C but kept the temperature never went above 43C.

Fair enough. Maybe it's because it's a relative new relatively low cost AMD.
My system (see specs) is hardly outdated & it works fine but the CPU is Intel.
Some comparison specs for interest

What you measure is what you get. What it means is another thing.

These are my system temps,the case is open,custom built by me,i added 3 powerful fans.

These temps are on air,i can get better temps only with full speed cooling power but just 2,3 points lower for each hardware and these are really good temps.

You have 9C? This is super cooling.

Yea those i7 are expensive, yours is 200 more than what I payed, It better be faster than mine lol.... I actually got it as a replacement for my Phenom x4, and It is much faster then my old Processor, I ended up with a 500W cooler Master PSU, the asus motherboard, 8GB of kingston ram, and the Processor for 200 bucks, Im not a gamer, and i dont render graffix/videos everyday, so it is actually perfect for what I need it for. you really cant go wrong, $200 for basically a new computer.
