    Shuttle Temps

    hi guys was playing max payne 2 last night and the fan was on and off during the game i rebooted and checked my bios the cpu was sat at 48 is that an ok temp for a Shuttle with an 1800amd and two harddrives which will block the airflow..?

    Also what is the best cpu heat monitor for a shuttle system?

    my shuttle is the SN41G2

    They sure don't run cool. Mine runs at about 48-50 at load. MBM works ok for temp monitoring, but I think unless things go crazy then just try not to think about it!

    The revving is why I watercooled mine.

    Its so annoying!

    It would be better if the fan just switched to full for 5 minutes or something than constantly adjusting

    Set it to be on all of the time then. Or replace it with a quieter one!

    Get a noiseblocker fan in there, a nice S3 or S4 would be ideal, or do what I did and bodge a watercooling solution together.

    Bit more expenive but much more fun

    Noiseblockers are damn fine. Pops straight in where the old sunon hurricane impersonator goes!

    I had a noiseblocker got very whiny on me after a few weeks, not bad though certainly pushed the air through.

    Shuttles generally do run hot all the time. Mine used to idle at about 48 and was about 53 under load. Also you can stop the fan from revving by changing the speed variable fan options in the BIOS so it only does it at certain temperatures.

    lol, yeh bright lights are fun. I was hoping it'd all be fine, there's no reason why it shouldn't have gone wrong. Only other way to get it running cooler is a more powerful fan which = more noise unfortunately. Having so much air moving around a small space causes noise, it's not really the fan it's the actual airflow.

    Snip out the Fan grille to reduce airflow noise.

    Get a nice Antec blue LED fan http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...duct_uid=36338

    Not too noisy and they look cool
