    I've seen one read less (must have been faulty) but others have been 5-15c hotter. :eek:

    Get a CompuNurse as they're cheap and reliable. ;)

    well just from experience u should be able to judge roughly what your cpu temp is looking at your cooling setup and cpu....give us some details:D

    I was thinking what might be causing my high temps.

    I have 2 case fans, one sucking in at the bottom front & one exhaust at the rear near cpu. I also have a fan on the heatsink, they are all 80mm fans & all run off the PSU. i have looked up my case (Enlight 2730) & noticed it only has a 300w psu fitted with a single fan.

    Could this be a problem.

    Cheers

    A blowhole in the top of the case is always sure to get rid of heat buildup. ;)

    yea and since ur using a slow fan on your AX7 i'd mod a 120mm in the side of your case bowing straight down into your cpu area....this extra air pressure will help out quite a bit:D and also i'd still get a better fan....even if u can;t stand the deltas, get something a but more substantial:cheers:
