dual core users what temp do you get on your pwmic

Recommended Posts

Ive heard that it should work with under 80c, but i think its to hot if it gets over 60c...

 

I've let it go up to 71-72C and haven't seen any problems, but I wouldn't dare to leave it like this for everyday, specially having in mind that during the summer all the temperatures will go up by at least 5-7C, maybe even more.

 

Since having [email protected] is quite decent everyday speed for now, and the PC itself is very, very quiet (CPU fan 19dB, intake 19dB, exaust 21dB), I would rather not add additional fan and noise into it... Maybe someday (soon?)...

mine never goes above 40 C, i have a side case fan sorta blowing on it, but definitly not helping that much... both bios and smart guardian report the same 40 c temp, i'm hoping this is correct and that the actual temp isnt higher... my temp seems low compared to everyone else.... sry i dont have dual core, but saw a thread about pwmic temps :)

Mine is DIRTY low at 28c with folding running 100%. Put this low temp down to new case (MountainMods Bob Slay). Curious as to if PWM is actually being cooled or just the thermistor...

My CPU temp reaches 52C and PWMIC reaches 62C after 30min dual priming @2700Mhz. I'm only running with stock HSF right now and hope the coming SI-120 will help. I heard that for air cooling,those who using XP-90 usually get lower PWMIC temp.

Whenever I start to worry about that temp I just think about my Athlon XP boards that didn't even have heatsinks on the PWM IC's. Those boards managed to survive 1.85v @ 2.4GHz for years for me, and still work fine. Those little PWMs are quite durable. Adding a temp probe for them I think just scares people. We got by fine without it before.

Hmm reaing some of the replies here has eased my worry a little as mine has hit 70 deg C,only had my Opt 175 in for a day or two so I guess I will still put some active cooling on mine as well.

 

I think Swaaye is probably right though in what he says lol,its like running a car with extra gauges and stuff you are constantly watching them "just in case" :D
