    Default Temperature problems ASRock Vision 3D

    Hi all,

    I'm experiencing some problems with my AS Rock Vision 3D machine.
    In my opinion is gets way too hot, the CPU temp according to OC tuner is about 80 degrees (case also feels quite hot)
    The load is not very heavy, just Windows 7 ultimate and XBMC

    Got some good tips from : Asrock visionx gets very hot but unfortunately not with good results.

    Things i've done to improve temp
    - Raised the machine and inch from desk to improve airflow.
    - Installed all drivers via CD rom supplied with machine
    - Set fanspeed to full in BIOS

    I'm no IT pro but it looks like AS rock machines are overclocked by default? (CPU ratio?)
    Is it possible to tune it down a bit? as I do not need a very fast machine just for XBMC and Win7

    If yes, can you explain how to do this?

    Thanks!

    Is that 80c while at idle? I'll skip asking the is it clean and has good airflow q's, but can you verify the coolers fan is spinning?

    What model of Vision 3D do you have?
    #1 - Please, when seeking help, enter the make and model of ALL parts that your system is comprised of in your Signature, or at least the model #'s in your System Specs, then "Save' it.
    ____If you are overclocking, underclocking, or undervolting any parts, informing us of this and their values would prove beneficial in helping you.

    #3 - Please use the PSU Calculator found HERE to determine if it might be the PSU causing issues. I do(Lifetime PRO ver.) and will mention so if it is marginal for your build.
    ____Consider your PSU to be the foundation from which all else is built upon. Anything built upon a weak foundation is poorly built.

    The processors used in the Vision 3D series PCs are all Intel mobile/laptop processors, that cannot be over clocked at all. There is no automatic OC on those CPUs.

    You may be able to "turn it down a bit" as you said, but I need to check the manual for the BIOS settings. I hope they have the CPU power saving options enabled by default, a must for mobile processors that are still using a laptop style CPU cooler in those PCs.

    Yes, we need to know what model you have and if you've added any drives to it, etc.
