    Winchester load temps...?

    I've been running my rig at stock speeds for a fair while now, as there's really no need to push it for everyday use.

    Anyways, I was doing a bit of monitoring this afternoon, whilst it was happily crunching in the background for UD, and I noticed the temps creeping up as far as 53 degrees. I know UD has the poor little guy working at 100% all the time, but I don't seem to recall seeing temps that high before. The fan speeds are all normal and it's running okay - I just wondered if I should be concerned seeing those temps?


    Thanks in advance guys...

    Does it crash?

    check to see if things are getting a bit dusty in your case - hoovering and air blowing mine reduces temps by 6-8C when it's at its worse.

    Heatsinks are bad for catching dust hence making it more difficult to dissapate heat.

    Do not use a normal hoover inside a PC - they carry vast amounts of static. Get a compressed air can.

    Are you using a stock fan? Mine is 36-40C 100% use depending on the ambient temperature, but that's using the Zalman Cu7700.

    No, don't worry - I've got compressed air (and fresh AS5) here to do the job properly if it came to it - I just thought I'd ask advice on whether I should be thinking about doing it.. lol.

    As per sig, I'm using an XP120 h/s with Luxotop fan. It's fine this morning - the machine having only been on for an hour, and it's sitting at 42 degress whilst crunching. I was just a little alarmed to see it 10 degrees higher than that yesterday - but then I guess that's what 18 hours of HL2DM and UD does for it... lol.


    Thanks for the advice guys - when I go dual core and to the next gen GFX next year, I'm gonna consider a different cooling system - it'll be fun..
