I rebuilt my machine, to clean it, lap the cpu heatsink, put some arctic alumnia on it, replace a fan, and pencil my bridges.

At startup, temps went as high as 42c idle. That night, I shut it down.

The next night, I turned it on, and temps steadied at 39c idle. Room temp dropped overnight, and it was noticeably cool in the room, and the machine was 32c idle. Got home from work, and it was back up to 39c idle.

Keep in mind, these are temps from the probe on an Asus A7V-133. While some say it tends to read high, I don't think mine is reading very high, based on the 32c reading. :)

Opinions?

So you let your system sits idle all the time? Idle temp mean nothing. Load er up for 24-48hrs or always with seti :cool:

Try 5 machines in the same room. Talk about sweating. I closed off all the AC vents in the apartment cept the one in this room just to keep it bearable in here.

Then again, I LIKE it cold anyhow.
