    Can I Know Assume My System Is Stable Lol

    HI ALL

    since joining this site things like temps fans and all this never bothered me you guys have made me paranoid

    as per my other thread i have built a new system based on xp2500 i can get it to 195fsb i think ram maybe failing me a bit but i aint worried about 5fsb lol

    case was a bit on the sad side airflow wise

    so i have installed 4 new coolermaster and seems fine i have ran loads f tests over the last few days

    CAN I NOW STOP WORRYING ABOUT THIS AND THAT AND JUST GET ON WITH IT YOU THINK LOL

    TESTS RAN

    3dmark2001 9 loops with no errors
    3dmark 2004 4 times no errors
    prime 95 torture test 6 hours no errors

    and finally played far cry on best settings i could medium-high for 2 and a half hours no errors

    AM I NOW STABLE YOU THINK

    case temp 28-32
    cpu temp idle 45
    load never got above 53 in prime or far cry

    Hell my processor gets to about 55 after a gruelling session of Far Cry, and the ambient case temp to about 32. I don't let it bother me. Lol.

    As long as the computer is stable why should it bother you what temp it's at?

    My cpu regularly goes to 55 but it never crashes and it is almost silent.

    I own a PC that changes regularly, so I don't bother putting anything in here...

    Well at the minute my idle temps are at 59c and thats using S2kCtl as well.
    They were 42c with a 80mm fan directly on my sk-7 hs but ive put a 92mm papst on a fan bracket and my temps have soared.Just waiting for a 80mm papst to arrive to put that on to see how it helps.
    S2kCtl is a sort of a temp cheat.It lowers you're idles temps.Find out more and DL it from here

    At the moment with this hot weather my case is 37 and CPU load is 58-60.

    How does that program work?

    My CPU has got up to 65, the mobo up to 41, the IBM deathstar hit 40 today too. It's b0rked out once during the heat today, I think down to the CPU.

    A new heatsink will be sorting that out.

    Meanwhile, I think this is better suited to Technical Hardware, as it isn't really a "Help!" thread.

    Woa, didn't see that.

    STOP THERE!

    Think about this system idler program for a minute... What use is it lowering your idle temps? When the system is under load there's absolutely nothing the program can do - so it's not like the CPU will be cooler under load. Furthermore, everything will be heating up and cooling down far more. This constant shifting of heat will cause expansion/contraction of components which they don't always like a great deal!

    I can't force people not to use such programs, but that's my opinion, and the opinion of various others whom I have spoken to.

    My case temps went up to 46c last summer - but it hasn't quite got that hot yet ... the thing about living in a flat in the city in the summer is ---- things just don't cool down !!!

    MMM cheers kez i hadn't thought of that.I was just desperate to get my cpu temps down as they were soaring.A quick delete will soon fix that then.I hope my new papst fans arrive today.I hate high temps.

    you can never have too many fans in the system - I have got:

    2 * 120mm (front of case and exhaust - passing over the GPU)
    1 * 90mm zalman pci-bracket over the GPU
    1 * chipset fan (onboard)
    1 * dual power fan (onboard)
    1 * zalman 7000A (all copper) at full speed (2500rpm - still pretty quiet)
    1 * single quiet PSU fan (Antec 380W quiet PSU) - might consider 550 dual fan soon

    The system is pretty breezy with all those and there's always room for more

    ---- your biggest problem, however, is ambient temps as it doesn't matter how many fans you have in your case if you are just pushing very hot air around the whole time ----

    temp 32°C idle, 40°C load with 2800xp at stock, using 1x 120mm stealth fan and coolermaster hc001 today.

    Yeah I hear you saying I should push that puppy, but I have MSI KT4 ultra FISR mobo.

    MSI also have a cooling piece of software called "cooler xp" (very original) and whilst it does cool under idle I can't see the point. Also used to give awful feedback through the mobo to soundcard.

    imho 55-60°C is the max load if you want a good performance/life cpu ratio.
