    Default High system temperature

    My system temperature displayed in the bios is 43-48 c. Which i believe is quite high. However when i touch the radiator of the mb chipset it feels cold. What does that mean ? I'm not much of an expert. Is it a problem ?

    That is warm, kinda. What Speed are you running with what FSB? And have you added MCH or FSB Voltages?

    What is your ambient temp?

    I don't know why people get into a fit once their temps are not 3x. 43-48. Nothing is wrong with that.

    Relax people.

    like soldier said, for an older board thats actually a fine temp... as long as you dont go much past 50C you'll be fine... it'll hinder your OCing a little bit, but really there's nothing wrong with those temps

    here is the actual pc setup :

    PSU:

    The tower is a mid tower from foxconn with 1 tower fan on it, but i can't remember the model as i threw out the box and dunno where to look for the tower model on the tower itself :)

    sorry for the lame posting at the start.
    no extra colers for the mb , just a liquid cooler for the cpu.
    the problem is my pc keeps rebooting when i put it to high load and i cannot understand where from. so i thought it could be the system temp. I changed the power supply , thinking it was coming from it , however the problem still persists. Now i'm headed towards the video card.... which does make some strange sound(buzzing sound, but not a fan sound) when it goes under heavy load and before the pc reboots.

    Only 1 fan? Wow, you should get you at least 2 120MM fans and put one in the back and one in the front. 2 in the back and one up front it you can

    What BIOS Settings are you using. I really think your card is Broke because of the sounds coming from it, but you may have some settings incorrect as well which could cause your system to fail. >>>>

    Just to add to your fan advice Lsdmeasap, the front fan should be intake and the back fan exhaust. Also, don't look for any ordinary 120mm fan. Try and get one with a decent CFM and rpm.

    High rpm isn't everything. CFM is what matters as that is what determines the amount of air the fan moves. Keep in mind though, the higher the CFM, the noisier the fan will be.

    Right, thanks for the additional info I should have noted myself!

    I Use AeroCool XtremeTurbine's in front and back, great air flow and not too loud at all >>>
    Newegg.com - AeroCool XtremeTurbine-Blue 120mm Case Fan - Case Fans

    Pricey a bit, but I like em alot

    If you are short on cash, I would suggest some Yate Loon D12SH's from Petra's >>>
    http://www.petrastechshop.com/120x25mmfans.html

    or D12SM's if you want a bit less Airflow or do not have a controller. But even the H models are pretty quiet. I use these on my Rad's
