Da_Teach Posted August 28, 2005 Posted August 28, 2005 I have been having some serious PWMIC heat issues. Reading this forum the average temp of the PWMIC should be below 50c ? Well currently I have my case open, with a house-fan blowing inside it (yes one of the things you normally use to cool your room :cool: ), and its idle at 48c and will bump to around 55-60c under load. However, if I where to close my case, and turn on the 3 case-fans (which strangely enough make more noise then this house-fan I have blowing in it now :eek2: ), it'll idle at around 55-60c and jump to 70-75 under load. What is the cause of this much heat? And whats a good way too cool it? And can the PWMIC cause crashes @ 75c ? Because using the case-coolers, with everything running 'so hot', I do notice system instability, which doesnt happen with the 'house fan' blowing inside the case. System specs: NF4 SLI-DR AMD X2 4800+ Dual XFX 7800 GTX Extreme (running SLI ofc) 1Gb (2x512) OCZ EL DDR PC-4000 Gold VX (running at 3.3v) 2x 78Gb Raptor And a side question will my system be able to handle an additional 1Gb of OCZ EL DDR PC-4000 Gold VX (e.g. all 4 slots filled with it) ?
