Cpu temperature really high ? please help =(

Hi,

I've recently noticed alot of random pc freezes and shut down's that i think may be due to cpu overheating because the top of my case is red hot during games..

I downloaded core temp and found that its idling at 39-40 degrees C and when i go into my bios options my cpu fan (arctic cooler xtreme Arctic Cooling Freezer Xtreme Revision 2 Socket 775.. | Ebuyer.com) is only able to run at 1100 rpm ?

is there anyway i can raise the speed and therefore drop the temp of my cpu ?

edit: in game it reads at 66 degrees

Any help would be great

I don't know if 1100 is the max rpm of that fan or not. Does it run at a constant 1100 or does it run slower when you are not gaming? You might be able to get more info from the Arctic Cooling web site.

Your other choices would be to keep the cooler, but replace the fan (if you can find another that fits) or to get another cooler/fan combination.

39 or 40 is a good idle temp.

What is the temp when gaming?

67 is acceptable on an Intel processor. I'm not sure about AMD.

You should be able to monitor fan speed while gaming with an application such as HWInfo32.

I think you are looking at the summary tab in that picture.

Instead, use the sensor tab to look at temperatures.

Yeah, that's it.

All those temperatures look good, but what do they look like when you are gaming?

See if your fan speeds change when gaming also.
