    Temperature question about my new 3500+

    I just made my computer, and i applied a good thin layer of AS5 on the CPU, when i started the comp...the idle temp was 52, and when i started to install windows the temp was around 62 degrees, is this high? Is this really something to worry about?

    Whats the max temp my CPU is supposed to run under both idle and load?

    P.S i;m might think of buying better cooling later on and overclocking in the future, but currently i aint doing anything untill i resolve this issue.

    Thanks people

    what is your motherboard model?

    i have heard that some motherboards have issues with temperature accurracies

    don't always trust what it says from your motherboard

    My 3200+ is around 23 on idle and 25 installing Windows, so it's sounds very high to me.

    Agreed that there are lots of problems with inaccuracies, so it would be worth checking via another method. However from what I've seen people are either getting silly numbers or they are not a million miles away. So I would be careful.

    I have an Abit AV8, and I'm sure the temps are reported wrong on my Athlon64 3500+, 67 load and about 50 idle.
    I don't mean to sound cold, or cruel, or vicious, but I am so that's the way it comes out.

    Could be a temp inacuracy, i have the 3500 on asus av8 deluxe and it runs around 27 idle and 35 under full load with standard heatsink, you may not have noticed because the 64's can run up2 70c before they reach a threshold. Check temperature via another method, if you cant keep your fingers on the heatsink becouse its too hot then theres obviously something wrong! what board? newcastle or winchester cpu?

    My Temps

    Sorry for not giving not enough info

    I have a Newcastle 3500+ with a revision of 'DH7-CG', in an ABIT AV8 3rd Eye,

    current temps i see in front of me via the external temp monitor (given with the mobo) 53 degrees and understress after i played doom 2 (and got the crap scared out of me) went to 74 (WTF!!!!).

    I read this

    http://forums.tech-arena.com/archive...p/t-25008.html

    The guy says i don't need to worry about my high temperature display...i'm not really sure because after he flashed his bios, his temp was around mine...but is there a chance my temp is lower?

    Because when it was 74 degrees, my PC ran perfectly, no lag, no sign of anything...

    It's almost a certainty that your temps are not being reported correctly.

    Check that when you installed the heatsink that you put thermal paste on the cpu.. I had a friend who had high temps and that was his problem...

    Might be worth getting independent verification by buying some sort of temp sensor.

    Take the heatsink off and double check that it has some thermal paste.. Also make sure your fan is plugged in..

    ^^As he says^^ The AV8 temp sensor is... strange, although Abit say it's not a bug.
