CPU Temps

Recommended Posts

I'm on my laptop now, but the desk top runs about the same as yours. I'm using a ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro 92mm CPU Cooler

Thats a good Heatsink

This is the heatsink I have on it and used Arctic silver 5 grease

BTW. Thanks for the conversion that will come in handy

Just put this new machine together for a friend, and was wondering what temps i was getting. I didnt think these are correct temps even though I have a massave heatsink and fan on it  :idiot2:

That means the temp. is not being read.

lol... theres no way scientifically that a cpu can run that cool unless its outside in the cold. i have never in my life seen one run that cool. get a temp gague and stick it on the cpu heatsinc =)

That is not true. I've seen CPU's run at - 20 using liquid nitrogen for cooling, and other's using a liquid cooling method run at around 0

I agree , air cooling cannot run a lower temp. than the ambient (room) temp , no matter how much air you blow at it , or how big the fins are ,

best prog I have found is

If all your using is a heatsink and airflow, the best you can do is to approach the ambient temperature.  Now I'm just doing my best estimates here so please oblige.  If one of you would like to correct this list go for it.

Air:                   10-50 degrees Celsius over ambient.

Water:               5-30 degrees Celsius over ambient.

Chilled water:     0 - 20 degrees Celsius over ambient

TEC:                  5 below - 20 over ambient

Phase change:   60 below - 30 below ambient

Liquid Nitrogen:  200 below - 100 below ambient

Its only thermodynamics  :haha:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermal_conductivity

So how many home folk are running liquid nitrogen for cooling, ?

indeed Blako is right enough ,

from my own limited home user experience , if with aircooling you can get to within

+10 C of ambient you are doing OK ,

with water cooling maybe within + 5C , and thats not using a chiller for the water ,

any readings outside that range I would expect it to be a sensor or program error ,

the old  tried and tested way was to grip the heatsink body , if it felt cool it was OK, if warm to touch

again ok , if you couldn't hold it , you had a problem , :evil6:
