    Thats fairly warm for an AMD my, fairly heavily overclocked 3700+ never passes 34C. What cooling are you using?

    Aye I agree, you should be aiming for around 54°C under load... somethings not right there.

    thats way too high for idle temps. did you use a thermal paste like arctic silver, or a thermal pad? if you used a pad, did you take the paper off it first? also take off the heatsink and look at the contact area and see if it was flush together.

    MON 54c is far to high for a Athlon x2...


    Acctually x2's maxium running heat tolerance is 65c (without acctually physically working)

    but..

    i run an overclocked athlon 4200+ x2 (2.6) and that runs at 28c idle
    even with defualt hsf you should be aiming at 35c idle

    i suggest taking heat sink off, making apsoulty sure thermal paste is spread evenly over the whole cpu die....make sure heatsink is securly fastened to motherbaord and try resetting the cmos, becuase sometimes motherbaord can auto reduce voltage on cpu fan

    hope this helps

    yea i took off the original paste and put on arctic silver .. i have 80mm front fan which i am upgrading to 92 and the rear two are 60mm and i have not side fan on the case so i am going to put two 80mm or just one 80mm looking at them enermax (dial control)

    the case is a scan alumax the rear is the max i can go scan do have this case in but they must of upgraded it because the rear is now 80mm. see link = http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...roductID=10175

    also the fan is working ok i have seen it go up to 5900 rpm and at start is is around 3000 or more

    I have similar components to you, (X2 4200+ and Asus A8N32. It is possible that you might see slightly higher CPU temps than other people due to the heatpipe transferring heat to the upper part of the board.
    With stock cooling, depending on my ambient temperature (it can vary a fair bit), my idle temps are:
    CPU 34-40
    MB - 32-37.

    At load, my CPU has hit about 58, the MB on the other hand stays fairly constant (about 42max).

    This is with Cool and Quiet enabled (have you enabled this yourself - you should notice a significant reduction in temps if so).
    Also Q-Fan is on, which will raise temps obviously, but helps with the noise. What about yours?

    My temps were higher when I had a passively cooled 6600GT in there (damn thing idled at 65-70C).
    Now with the 7800GTX temps are as above.

    The setup's all housed in a P180 with 2 120mm fans fairly close to the CPU area.

    Given the amount of case ventilation that you can(can't) achieve, I'd expect your temps to be more in the 45-50 range (rather pessimistically) at idle. Those CPU fan rpms seem awfully high...I didn't know the stock fan went up to 6k rpm? Is the heatsink fairly warm to the touch?
    Check the things that other people have mentioned above.
    Also, just check that you haven't got bits like CPU-Overvolt on which raises the CPU core 0.2V..

    What sort of load temps are you getting?

    Cool and Quiet is enabled the q-fan is not.. the heat sink is war to touch but the heat pipe is a bit warmer .. do you think the fans are better replaced and will the side fan make allot of difference and is that case i have OK for the set up? my gtx runs at 49 at idle when system is warm .. the cp u fan is settled at 3750 now since i took the front ALU plate off
    i took the front panel of and the mb was 45 it is now 40c

    also wot is CPU-Overvolt ?

    and i did set the AI booster to standard instead of auto

    so the case (scan alumax) is ok for setup then or is it on the limit (size i mean) for the setup?

    When you're CPU's being used a lot, i.e. when playing a game, benchmarking etc.

    right load temp .. i run bf2 for half an hour getting killed ( not played it proper yet ) lol

    and come ok and checked temps and it was 49 c for cpu and the mb was 41c system looks like it not moveing mutch above that but want to try 3dmark to stress it .. when i get them fans it should stableize even better.. not bad for the case ..(scan alumax) and the system inside in cold .. the temps must be thrown off due to size of case..

    just looked now and cpu is 48 and mb is 41 but the 120 fan is only running at 1200 rpm whitch max is 2400
