Temps OK?


Wasn't sure which formum to post this in, but I'm wondering if these IDLE temps are good? I jus put in a Thermaltake V1:

GPU 42C
Temp1 34C
Temp2 23C
Temp3: -2C
Temp: 0C
HD0: 33C

Core0: 44C
Core1: 37C
Core2: 38C

When running World of Warcraft and watching videos on YouTube Core0 gets up to about 49C but I haven't seen it higher, though the GPU gets up to 50C

Using software called SpeedFan 4.38- if you can recommend something better to keep an eye on my temps and fans, please do. I'm ALMOST ready to start OCing this sucker

Your temp's look fine, depending on current case temp and Vcore. SpeedFan is used by quite a few folks for monitoring temp's, but the most popular (also considered to be the most accurate) are Core Temp, Real Temp, and HWMonitor...

Thanks, I got HWMonitor and will be using that. Just having a hard time finding out what "normal" temps should be.

VCore is around 1.15V

It depends on a number of factors, including Vcore (Vcc), ambient / case temp.; case cooling, HSF, and TIM used (including the application method.) Using either Core Temp or Real Temp to monitor the core temp's, just keep Distance to TJ Max above 25 - 30C.

Looking at Core Temps it shows Tj Max @ 100 and it's not changing at all, is that normal?

TJ Max will stay at 100C, unless you manually change the TJunction Max Offset. You need only be concerned with Distance to TjMax, under "Temperature Readings" in Core Temp.

~52-53C to TjMax, fluctuating, sometimes as low as 50, up to about 55 for Core #0
