Normal Temps: First switch speedfan to farenheit so you get a true idea of temp.

Hard Drive : 80-90 Farenheit

Processor : anywhere from 100-125 Farenheit

Dear uchman,

Temperatures depend on gear. I was just informed by Antec that Intel Prescott CPU's have to have a direct outside air current. They are now certifying cases. No lie!

The case has a direct tube that fits over the CPU heat sink to a side panel case fan. It uses outside air constantly.

Let us know,

junkdk :thumbsup:

41C is very high for an ambient temp in your case but nothing to worry about at all for a CPU temp.

Download the system analysis program 'Everest' so you can get detailed information about your system:
Everest download
Temperatures, voltages and fan speeds are shown under Computer>Sensor.

This may give you a clearer idea of what is going on inside your system. (It quite correctly shows temps in C which is the only proper way of measuring it :thumbsup: )

farenheit as a "true idea" of temp?? what does that mean?

41c is just fine for core temp. I have seen systems get as high as 70c and still function, which i thought was crazy but hey, it worked.

As for airflow, try and set up the fans so air gets drawn in from the front/top and blown out of the back/side. that way you create a current of fresh air that is constantly moving through your system.

good luck!

Dear uchman,

Yes...this is where I question Rimmer. 41C / 106 F is hot but workable. I think it will be ok if you have a good AIR flow system. I live in Florida and as long as my computer stays below 109 F anywhere I am cool.

Thats with the windows open feeling the heat of a 96 F day. Of course I will not play a game in that heat.

But if I were to run a regular computer in that heat...no problem.

Let us know,

What i meant of "true idea of temp" is that in most countries and where i live, in the US we use Fahrenheit and not Celsius. For me its easier to set it to Fahrenheit because i know the temperature how hot it is how cold it because Ive felt temperatures like that.

I don't want to have to manage my computers temperature by word of mouth saying that 40 C is a manageable temperature. Its just more of a convenient for me.

Also i find the fact that you ran a computer for more than 15-20 minutes at 158 degrees Fahrenheit (70 celcius) without any problems.

Usually when a system reaches upwars ofd 160+ thats when its burning prevention kicks in and it shuts down the pc.
