I wouldn`t complain about 97 to 100 degrees farenheit. What do you think the temp should be ?

You need to talk to the water cooler manufacturer, not " A computer Company ".

Who exactly did you call ?

My i7 is running at 65c on air - All cores folding 24/7. 36-39 at idle is about where i would be, no worries with that.

Did the system come With the Water cooling system? If it not then why are you calling the people that built it.
If it did come with the water cooling then maybe they didn't use enough, or used to much, Thermal Paste.

In any event 36-39°c isn't bad at all. Put some ICE in the water reservoir or stick it in the Refrig.

36-39 degrees isn't bad at all. Older computers had much higher temps and laptops (which have more sensitive parts) are *always* higher temp. I had a HP laptop from a few years back that idled at 80c. My new Dell idles at 25-30 or so. Big difference. Mainly in the fact that the chipsets are getting more efficient in heat transfer/generation.

I noticed my computer was running loud and checked my GPU software and it said that my computer was running around 70C with the temperature being around 76 (Fahrenheit) inside! I turned it off and let it sit for a while and turned it...

GPU registering high temps at idle
Hi all I've got 2 HD5870's in crossfire that have been running fine for about 8 months but now the fans are running very fast after boot. AMD Catalyst is reporting temps of 90-92 degrees and fan speeds of 60% when I have no applications running. I've checked Task Manager and nothing seems out of...

High idle CPU temps after last updates
Hi, It happened twice. My CPU idle temps increased A LOT after windows updates (Ultimate 64). And not just after rebooting, but all day long. Just in idle. When I start any work on the laptop, it drops to normal levels. Scary, cause I make pauses often and let it shutdown the screen and sleep....

High idle temps
The fan in my laptop has been running fast and non-stop as of recently. Even when it's idle. I had it dust-cleaned about 2 weeks ago but, if anything, it's only gotten worse since then. The idle temps of the CPU, GPU and HDD are all around 50°C (the GPU temp rises quickly into around 70°C if I...

One of the fans my Cooler Master v10 broke and I'm thinking of replacing my cooling system with one of these three a Cooler Master Aquagate Max, a Corsair H50, or a Thermaltake PW880i, but at the moment I'm using the stock fan that came from intel and I'm getting temps of 50-55c at idle and around...
