    hey sorry jeallen0 for getting off topic.
    NE way. try using MBM see what it says or even www.hmointor.com
    Also the XE fangrill causes less air to be going through the fan, so you might want to take it off and see if it makes a difference in temps. It will reduce noise as well.
    Lower temps with side panel off mean that you have good airflow in the case. SO no worries there.


    BTW AsianBatman, PC166 memory? WTF? might want to check that too. Ive seen pc150, but no 166

    ANYTHING in front of a fan will impede airflow. It doesn't matter what kind.

    It may or may not make an overall difference in the outcome of your temps due to the type of HS, lapping, or other variables. Although if your temps are a little high, it is always recommended to pull off the fan grill.

    ALSO for thermaltake or any other conventional fan, a TT fan tube is a good addition as it spreads the airflow more than a typical fan.

    Regards,

    I think that GamingSniper probably hit the nail on the head. Many of the Asus line of motherboard were horrid when it came to accurate monitoring of system temperatures. 10C off the mark toward the high side was common, but I think they have since put out a new BIOS update that fixed the Asus Probe and the way that it reads the thermal probes on the system board.

    ya, my asus is reading 48+ when i oc of 2500+ only 100mhz. at stock it reads 40.

    got a bit confused on that cause i believe the volcano 7+ can do better than that.

    got myself a nexus fan controller with temp monitoring. Place the probe 1cm away from the cpu.and how it reads 36 at stock, and 40 at 100 mhz.

    it that stiill too high?

    i used to have a vantec aeroflo and that kept temps at around 43-45c, and that was w/ the proc oc'ed to 1.72ghz. i dont know about the version of asus probe that i have but i have dl'ed the lates version of BIOS and flashed already. i have already repositioned the hs and ive reapplied asIII and moved the shim around and nothing changes. ill try tha idea w/ the jumper to see if that makes any difference.:bounce2: :bounce: :bounce2: :bounce: :bounce2: :bounce:

    :confused: I don't see what the prob is with those temps...48-50 degrees C is just fine ,thats like 125 degrees F as long as you don't excede 60 C there shouldent be a problem:cool:

    But if you must have lower temps here are my suggestions.

    Do you have a top mounted exhaust fan? hot air does rise

    is the wiring blocking air flow? ide and power calbes in the way of fans...

    is your case too small? maybe a new one would help

    well, i';ve searched around the web about the asus probe thing,and around 10 people ar having the sme problem as u and i. the asus probe is around 5degrees off in my asus probe. Well, if uwnat, u can just oc the alvl whenu think is enough, then, run a lot of test to see if the cpu can handle the spend. If it crashes, just lower the speed down/
