XP-90 temps

Recommended Posts

Just installed an xp-90 with a panaflo fan, and I am not sure, but my temps seem a little high. My idle is between 41/42, and the load temp has gone up as high as 57 degrees using cpu burn in. These temps are all according to the Nvidia Monitor. I have tried re-installing it a few times, (using Arctic Silver 5), but still the results. Any help would be appreciated.

you most likely put too much Thermalpaste onbut one more thing to check is the clamps for the xp-90. I have the same setup as u. The clamps that connect to the plastic thing hooked onto the mobo will clamp on and stay without really going all the way into place. make sure the side of the clamp is snug on the plastic. This happend to me before and caused the HS to not cover the core making my temps way too high like yours.

 

Im running my venice 3000+ at 2.43 1.52v and ive seen the idle go to 25, depending on the temp of room. it has NEVER gone over 42C even when it is hot as ..

What's the RPM of the CPU fan? Pointing in or out? What's the room temperature?

 

To a lesser extent: What kind of case? How many other fans do you have, what's their RPM, where are they, which way are they pointing, and how much airflow blockage do you have?

 

Juvey is probably right on with the thermalpaste. The key with paste seems to be to cover the CPU area completely, but with as little paste as possible - as thin of a layer as you can make.

 

If it's over 80 degrees room temperature, in a small case with sub-par cooling, this could be normal. I think the "boiling point" of these CPUs is something like 170 so you're fine, but I understand if you want it to be cooler. If your PC is tucked under a desk or is surrounded with stuff it's likely even hotter where the PC is.

 

It shouldn't matter if your fan is pointing in or out, but pointing in could increase the temp a few degrees (should only be 1 or 2 degrees, but who knows. Fact is, pointing out is cooler, though pointing in sometimes reduces the NB temp, if the RPM is high enough.)

 

My idle temp is 88-90F (32C) at 2657 RPM CPU fan. I have a rear 120 running at 2000 RPM, low speed PSU fans, and a top-rear 90mm also at 2000. No intake, but a big open front (intake doesn't help me much). 88-90F (32C) is usually in the morning after a nice cool ocean-breeze night. It's highly dependent on room temperature. Right now, it's noon, 68 F overcast outside, and I don't have AC so it's probably a good 75 degrees inside, and my CPU is idling at 93-95F (34-35C).

with AS5..you only use a small 3/4 BB size in center of the IHS on the A64 chips per Artic silver website

 

DO NOT fully cover the IHS ..it sticks like glue and ther eis a real risk of pulling the cpu out of the socket

 

Comparing temps is not easy to do

 

I live in Tampa, FL

My A64 3200 venice with [email protected] with XP90 and Vantec Stealth fan runs at 37C idle, 51/52C load..my fan points out

I have a P180 with the top fan blowing in..rear exhaust fan and front intake fan(these 120mm fans)

 

I may also switch the rear exhaust to blow in and top fan to suck and see how this does one day....

 

I have a very high PWMIC temp..ildes about 38-40 C and hits 52 or C under load

Chipset 47 idle/49/50 load
