Weird temps?

Recommended Posts

I have a lianli pc60 case with pretty much stock cooling. 2x80mm intake fans in front, 1x80mm fan exhaust in back, and 1x80mm exhaust fan at top. I am using a Zalman 9500LED hsf. My cpu temps seem to be ok. But my reported motherboard temps are crazy high. While I am running dual primes to stress both cores, I get around 59-60C in Everest for my mobo temps. Is this something I should worry about? My cpu temps are around 45C. Now my case is pretty full, and I also have this huge video card in here which runs around 55C idle. This is kinda weird too though. My video card ran around 48C idle in my other mobo (Asus A8N-SLI Premium). What could cause the increase in my GPU temp?

So....is this a sensor issue? Or is something in my mobo really getting hot? I think I need a bigger case, because I think my airflow is being affected by how much stuff I have in there now.

80mm fans usually have to work like crazy to be even close to a 120mm fan at half speed. In other words your temperatures might be accurate. If there's any possibility of changing fan size, that's what I would do.

Hmm...I wouldn't be able to mount 120's where the 80's are supposed to go without modding the case which I don't wanna do. Does anyone have any recommendations for a larger case than a lianli PC60? Maybe not huge like a full tower, but something in between, with 120mm fans standard, and just lots of room to work with.

I mean Is it normal for my motherboard temps to be so high? My cpu is idling at 32C and my mobo temp is at 44C. This just seems crazy to me. Usually the cpu temp is higher than mobo.

Nevermind about this. It's normal. My mobo temp is my PWMIC sensor temp which is usually pretty high from what I can tell. I'll see if I can't put a fan around it to cool it down some.
