These #'s look ok? Anything I should try changing?

EDIT: Please do not make a comment on my PSU as many have already pointed it out, thank you! My system is very stable w/ my current PSU, but I will upgrade it in the future. :) :nod:

 

So I think my system is pretty stable...although I haven't run prime95 yet. I have run SuperPi, Memtest, and OCCT all w/ no errors. I know Prime95 is THE test to run so I will def. do that in the near future...but I just want to see if my #'s were reasonable.

 

Running my 3000+ at 2.565Ghz, 285 HTT

Memory timing at: 2.5-4-4-8-1T

LDT -3x

CPU VID Control - 1.325 +1.23%

LDT V - 1.3V

Chipset - 1.6V

Dram - 2.9V

 

Now here's where I'm a little concerned, my temperatures (I used ITE Smartguardian to get these readings):

 

CPU Idle (w/ side panels closed) - 34*-37*C

CPU Idle (w/ side panels open) - 30*-34*C

 

CPU Load (w/ side panels closed) - 43*-47*C

CPU Load (w/ side panels open) - 39*-45*C

 

PWM IC Idle/Load (w/ side panels closed/open) - 36*-40*C

 

Chipset Idle (w/ side panels closed) - 44*C

Chipset Idle (w/ side panels open) - 42*C

 

Chipset Load (w/ side panels closed/open) - 47*C

 

I know the CPU temps are still within normal range (although I wish I could idle at 28-29C and load at 34-36C max) But my chipset temp looks awfully high. Also, what is PWM IC?

 

So what do you guys think about the numbers (mainly temps) ? Should I keep trying to lower my mem timings?

 

Thanks!

 

EDIT #2: New Question regarding 3d Mark scores:

 

People who post their scores and stuff, are they just running the default settings of the 3d mark programs (01, 03, and 05)?

Coolermaster RS-450-ACLY PSU 450W
I recommend changing this to one that meets the DFI specs. :nod:

The max combined +12V amperage is only 22A: http://www.coolermaster.com/index.php?LT=e...20Passive%20PFC

 

You really want a min of +12V@26A.

 

Pick a "proven winner" from the "A" list: http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=10854

Yeah I realize my psu doesn't quite meet the standards, but so far I have not had any problems w/ it. I also was told by a few people that this particular PSU would be good enough since coolermaster makes good quality parts.

 

I am really only interested in advice regarding my #'s/temps, thanks!

those numbers look good to me.

 

ignore my sig (i need to update), as my setup has changed and is now very close to yours.

 

* one thing you may find once you run prime95, is that you may need a vcore increase to "pass". im currently on 1.250 X 126% for my 3000 venice. 270 1:1 and using ocz Plat v2

Coolermaster as a PSU brand is on thr recommended list (but not the "A" list),

the problem here is that this 450W PSU only produces a max combined +12V@22A,

when we need/want a min of +12V@26A.

 

Well, I will definitely consider upgrading if my system becomes unstable.

 

So far though, everything seems solid.

 

Again, I just wanted opinions on my temps/#'s, not so much on the hardware.

 

But thanks everyone for you input, always willing to listen to some good advice :)

Lose the Coolermaster PSU. If you want to OC get an PC Power and Cooling or an OCZ. There are some others on the A list, but do not go for "good enough." Take the PSU out of the equation and this will make it easier when you are trying to figure out what is going wrong during OCing.

I will replace it in the future. But like I have said many times already, my system is very stable. I have no issues with the power as of now.

 

I really only wanted suggestions about my temperatures of my cpu/chipset and my memory timings. So if my temps look good, then please tell me, and if they are bad, please definitely tell me :)

 

Oh yeah, another question regarding 3d Mark scores:

 

People who post their scores and stuff, are they just running the default settings of the 3d mark programs (01, 03, and 05)?
