AMD 2.4 Athlon 64 4000 Socket 939
Nvidia GeForce 7600 GT
1 GB RAM
120 mm intake/exhaust fans - case is clean.
CPU 2163 RPM
Thermaltake CL-P0200 80mm Silent 939 K8 - AMD K8 solution w/ Heatpipe Cooling
SpeedFan, CoreTemp & other monitor pgms. report the CPU at 45 - 55 C at idle. This is with the side of the case on or off. There is a side case 120 mm fan that directs airflow right into the cpu fan. I also took the side off & set a small room fan blowing directly on it, no difference. I re-seated the HSF, new compound, no change.
I guess the heat from the vid card is rising into the cpu fan, maybe...vid card temps around 48 - 55 C.
Is there anything I can do to get these temps down into a reasonable range? Others don't seem to have this problem.
