47C at idle
« on: November 01, 2003, 12:26:46 PM »

I have:
AMD 2600+ @ 2.25ghz cooled by a Volcano 9 coolmod
the volcano is setup with the temperature sensor to auto adjust fan speed.
It runs at full rpm all the time and my cpu temp is still high 40s
am i supposed to be that hot?

Its tosty but nothing to worrie about.  its when it in the 50's at idle that id start to freek out.  try droping your votage abit and see if that helps.

whats where my xp2000 palomino was at idle with a volcano 9. i put a 120mm fan adapter on it with a 120mm fan and it didn't help much. i just think the volcano 9 heatsink is total crap and the only thing that made it a decent sink to begin with was the obnoxiously loud fan.

It's not just the volcano 9
I had a vantech areo-flow and it was actually 1 or 2 C higher.  
the vantech fell apart POS.

47*C shouldnt be a problem since AMD's go up to 90*C.  I dont understand y its that high cuz i have a cooler master AAC-001 and i never see anything above 43*C.

That idle temperature is nothing to worry about.  While the die can go up to 90, 60 is considered the upper limit for load temps.

what is your ambient temp and what is your cpu case setup?

i asked the ambient temp because if you live in a hot environment, say a tropical country like me, consider yourself lucky if you reach 47 in an idle state  :)

if you have a poor case ventilation, then i would suggest adding more fans...  :)
