    On normal load situation I am getting about 40-42 C. I am wondering if this okay or should it be lower. I am using artic silver and I made sure the bending part of the heatsink connector is over the core. Is there anything else that I can do to lower the temps, or should I not worry about it?

    hmmm, not sure if this is good or not. See below for system specs.

    EDIT* Well I ran PCMark2002 and my computer never went above 44C...let me know what you guys think.

    saidin, what fan setting for the volcano7+ ??
    I'm getting 46c cpu / 32c system temps...(medium setting)
    I can get the cpu down to 42c if I put the volcano7+ on "high", but it's too loud.
    I have reapplied the Arctic Silver 3...I was getting ~52c (cpu) before.(medium).
    Think I could get the temp lower if I apply a thinner coat of AS3 ?? Kinda worried about applying too thin of a coat.
    I'm using the Gigabyte software, tried MBM5, got the same temps.
    See signature for specs. Case has all 5 80mm fans installed.

    Edit:Is the Volcano7+ fan supposed to blow air onto the heatsink or suck the air out ???

    Asus are known to show inaccurate temp readings
    XP Palomino cores run hott, very hott

    I had a 1600+ (hellfire has it now) and it ran at 40degs idle and 45 under load, with ambient ranging from 25-30degs using a dragon orb 3

    upgraded board + chip + ram to a 2100+ and the chip runs at around 50degs idle, 55 underload same ambients, same hs

    I have attached a pic from tomshardware to show the power output of the different amd cores, that is reason enough to explain why some chips are hotter than others

    on that graph, it shows the heat the the chips throws out for us to cool.

    The green ones are the XP 1500+ to 2100+

    higher heat dissipation = higher chip temps

    thats why they changed from the .18 to the .13 core and made the die bigger so that more heat can be caught to cool down

    anyways, im tired :P you can read up on it if ya like :)

    OK...I have a question....

    In the Gigabyte temp utility, it says
    cpu temp:47c
    system temp:32c

    How does it measure the system temp ???
    Because I just used a digital thermometer and I get 25c behind my hard drives and 28c at the top of my case.
    I trust my Omega HH12

    So. Is that "system " temp reading actually the PSU temp ? Or would the mobo have some other sensor somewhere ?
    Where should I take my readings ?

    P.S. Ambient room temp is 22c
