awsome, i put this http://www.scorptec.com.au/index.php?prdid=00009297 cooler on which i had stored away for about 4 months because last i had it on i was getting 50c + and now im getting

38 to 40 on full and
42 to 40c on low
On idle

about 43 to 46 on full load i think!

and i have 2 fans at the rear at my case and a pci slot exhast fan(very cool)

and 1 at the front and up the front on the left behind the hdds on the side!

and im getting 14c for case temp and i only have one fan working and that was at the rear!

The best cpu fan ive had so far :d(cant wait for watercooling for my x800xt and amd64)

and this is on a amd 2600+ xp!

List your specs. I got over 5000 with my rig, can't remember the right numbers.

Just ran the benchmark for 3DMark03 and I got 5903.

Vortex, that low score is because of your "not so good" video card.

You cant get a best score. The faster the card the better the score. Right now the X800's and 6800's are breaking 12,000 and more.

that is weird, you get 14* C case temp and getting 40* C CPU temp, that's not cool, it should be a lot lot lower. Imagine if your case temp is around ours, yours will be 50*+C for that CPU of yourse. Btw, where do you have your PC sitting that, because that's ultra low.

I don't see how you can have a 14C case temp unless your room is ice cold. I mean, with air your computer can't get cooler than the room it's in....

Yeah must be a fluke in getting your temps. Or you live in a deep freeze in the back of Wendys old fashion hamburgers.

That is a huge temp spread between the Case and the CPU temp. Not to mention that very low case temp.

I mean I have a virtual tornado going through my computer (700+ CFM) . I keep my house at a constant 72 and I have my ceiling fan going full tilt on average it is about 73-74 F in my office. My case temp at idle sits at 27 C. So my question is do you live in an igloo?

Haha. Yeah, you might be reading the wrong temp?

Try using/borrowing a thermometer and seeing if your case is actually at 15°C ( highly unlikely IMO), mine is around 25°C and I've never seen it below 18°C even in the winter... I don't open my window and duct air to my computer, my mom would kill me :D .
