Windows 7: CPU / GPU temp questions

Hello Mellon Head,

I only have like 2 fans in it lol Stock

Anyway, I am now using Rivatuner to increase the fan speed of my GPU and ive also put speedfan on automatic.
I've just been gaming and its now sitting around 48 degrees.

Apart from that outside it is pretty hot so that also adds up to it I guess.
----

Also I am kinda worried lol , the steps previously posted for speedfan are supposed to be idiot-proof but I can't seem to increase my fan speed manually

Will my fans survive if I just keep them at 100%?

Regards,
Mark

The point of my post/reply was simply to say that there are a lot fo factors in determining what meaningful temps are. The fact that I used yours and the OP's numbers was simply to show contrast and had nothing to do with slighting either person.

I'm sorry if I gave you the wrong impression.

All is good

I run AMD and in my system specs i do not exceed any abnormal heat issues plus when i was running intel i couldnt even shut my pc case it would shut down constantly and i have the same case now moded with amd mb and all ati radeon equipment

I just dont think intel is even in the same league as amd anymore there cheaper and more efficiant untill you actually use amd type system i wouldnt say it runs hotter cause i had the reverse experiece with the intel in the same case i just couldnt close it both sides had to be open just for it to stay on now both sides close and it doesnt remotly get anywhere near 35 c on full load and gpu stays around 50 on full load idle 45


my suggestions is add more fans check how you install them you want to have atleast one pushing in and one pushing out and a after market heatsink it could be airflow as early stated the more fans and better fan speed would help keep it better cooled the rmps are pretty low they should be atleast 2000 at minimum you might need to manual adjust it yourself just a suggestion

@markvis14 you are making a mistake keeping only 2 fans at 100% just spend the money and get a couple more fans and atleast bring them down by 40 % your going to end up frying your mb and cpu for over stressing the only fans you have

Whether you have AMD or Intel, proper cooling is proper cooling. The fact that you say you couldn't close your case doors without over heating suggests that you had improper cooling.

Sorry.

wasnt improper cooling i basicly have the same set up even when i used the amd stock heatsink it never went above 40 and this system was professionaly built so what else can you chalk it up to

if a major company had put this machine together for me from the get go they should be the ones responsable for cooling it properly but none the less AMD works alot better for me then intel and i achieved building my own system with out dealing with pricy places

can't blame me for doing it myself when i had professional build the last one and it gave me more problems then my ex and child support hahaha

Regardless of who put the system together, improper cooling is improper cooling. And yes.... even the "pros" make mistakes. Like forgetting to properly seat the CPU cooler, or…. CPU loosens during shipping.

At any rate I’ve never had a system that got so hot that I couldn’t close the side doors. Not one; and all my systems have been Intel.

Again, If you can’t close the PC case doors, that’s cooling not an "Intel chips get so hot you can’t close side doors" problem.

Sorry.

yeah well doesnt matter anymore anyhow i dont use that board or chip anymore im happy now thanks for the info on the cooling though when i built this rig i decided to put as much fans as possible to prevent previous type actions
