No. It 'can' run up to 70 degrees, but that is at it's limit. It would probably damage the cores if it keeps running at that temp. You need to get it down to around 38-45.cpu running at full blast at 70degrees... is this safe? if not what is good fan for AM2 AMD 6000+?
Thats true...... when you go to work ask your IT Manager to show you around the firms computer room.It may sound silly, but what could well have caused it is the recent 'good weather'! All of a sudden the fans have had to kick in that much quicker and you may find it's caused one to fail! I'd check them as 1st port of call!
The motherboard should never be as hot as cpu...........my fan is going at 3000 rpm.. its currently at 50 degres on now load (my cpu) and so is my mobo..
do you think i need to get a better fan? if so which one? i dont mind paying a bit to keep my cpu really cool
Good point. Several boards have this problem. BIOS updates don't always cure it.1st thing to do is check for a BIOS update, there can be errors scaling the thermal sensor readouts with some CPU's. It was about +20C out last time it happened to me.
Perhaps not immediately, sometimes takes a while for them to get round to it, its worth checking online and with the mboard manufacturer if your board has a known problem though. If confirmed you can usually increase the thermal cutout trigger as a workround.Several boards have this problem. BIOS updates don't always cure it.
Agreed.Perhaps not immediately, sometimes takes a while for them to get round to it, its worth checking online and with the mboard manufacturer if your board has a known problem though. If confirmed you can usually increase the thermal cutout trigger as a workround.
The other clue is seeing a system temp of 50C on no load. Chipsets with integrated graphics working hard (ie playing a game) or with a faulty heatsink/fan might reach that temperature, its not very credible otherwise and ambient case temperatures needed to do it would be obvious to the touch. A pointer to a misread temp sensor rather than a real fault.
Another thing to check is that Cool'n'Quiet is actually enabled in the BIOS, otherwise your CPU is never really under no load and that would be a believable temp... so obvious we all overlooked itIve took the side of the case of and got a fan blowing in there and the CPU temp on no load is 37 Degrees C. Something must be wrong.
That proves it......... your case is getting hot and that isnt helping the CPU.......Ive took the side of the case of and got a fan blowing in there and the CPU temp on no load is 37 Degrees C. Something must be wrong.
The old fan was ok in an " ideal world " but the new one will make it run cooler but if the PC case is hot you wont see that much difference.I use the fan that came with the chip but am looking into this one
Get a 6 inch ruler and roughly measure it as square (Height, width, depth), then get a tape measure andi dont know the dimentions of the one i have now
I wouldn't enable it. The idea is that it trades off noise against temp. As the CPU load decreases so does the fan speed. It aims at a mean temp that balances between noise and temp.Iknow for a fact that Cool'N'Quiet is DISABLED. so making this enabled will improve the temps?
What does it acctualy do?
EDIT Just turned on Cool'n'Quiet.. Normaly sitting around 50'C on no load with case on, Sitting around 42'C With case off, no load, desk fan blowing in... I'll report back this evening with temps with Cool'nQuiet on.
Also while i was in bios i had a look around and if i wish i can enable AM2 Boost... What is this?
