new build are these temps ok...

hello just built a new pc and was hoping someone can let me know if the temps look ok.. I have 1 front 120mm fan blowing in, two 120mm fans blowing in and 1 rear 120 blowing the air out of the case and a top mounted PSU.... I was told the mother board was running hot at 50c... so here is a screen shot of the temps.. also this is the case I have http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811553011

If those are idle temperatures, they look okay, except, I can't say much about the motherboard temperature as I do not know where the sensor for it is located or how Speccy computes it.

Does the BIOS show the motherboard temperature? The BIOS readings tend to be the most accurate.

Does the motherboard temperature change if you leave the side open?

I went into bios and it says the motherboard /system is 33c and cpu is 38-40c so I guess speccy does not give the correct reading of temps... also with the side of I did not notice much of temp change at all.. I do plan on upgrading my cpu cooler sometime in the future with a push pull system, I added the side fans thinking I needed them I may not need the side fans then if bios is showing me lower temps then speccy was...

Speccy is probably right for the CPU temps, I always find the temp in the bios to be around 10C hotter as non of the power saving features are working until you get into Windows so the CPU will just be running at full speed in the bios.

Speccy could well be wrong on the motherboard temps though. I just checked mine using the software that comes with my motherboard and the temp is around 30C so your Bios temps for the motherboard sound about right. Probably Speccy is not detecting the temp correctly for your board.

Those HDD temps and socket temp tell me you have fairly high air temp in the case. I would look at getting more air flow. What is your ambient? Good air flow should give you a case air deltaT of 5C +/-, excellent air flow would be 1-3C.

I would try 1 or 2 different monitoring programs (1 at a time) and see how temps compare with other software generated temps. HWInfo-HWMoniter are both reliable.

As all mini cases proper air flow is difficult to achieve.
I don't understand your description of your fans and their location and which direction they are moving air.
Could you explain again. A picture would be great.

Something is not reading correctly.
Your +12V and +5V indicate zero.

I would suggest you upgrade your power supply to something like a Corsair or Seasonic.

Rocketfish Gameing power Supply 530watts has a poor reputation.

Your voltages are still very low. I don't ever know how your computer boots and starts.

Because of the poor reputation of your power supply, the problem you are having, and two quality programs voltage readings; I still recommend a new quality power supply.
Any reading you get will be in question until a known quality power supply is installed.
