Duse anyone know how good the memory coolers work that just clip over the memory? They are made out of metel and are supposed to draw heat away from the memory.

Use pc prob from asus I've tried speedfan, mbm, and others some reported to high.
But the three below report the same
CURRENTLY RUNNING TWO PREDUCTOR WU
ASUS PC PROB CPU 63C MB 36

AIDA 32 AND EVEREST V2.20 HOMED EDITION [http://www.lavalys.com/] REPORT THE SAME

Temp for my p4 3.4 ht should be Normal cpu 45c max 87c , mb normal 45c max 87c
I home this helps,

Sound like a gimmick.
Without thermal paste & a considerable amount of pressure there wouldn't be that much heat transfer to the "cooler" & then to the air.
They could actually result in the memory temperatures increasing.

At 87C, you could also use it to make breakfast. Wow, that's hot...

Thanks Fred, I tried to install "Probe" from one of the CDs that came with my two new Asus boards, but I get an incompatibility warning, and the install fails. THe MOBO is Asus, but an HP proprietary board. I'll check the others, thanks.

using everest home edition go to the storage section and click on smart and you will get info on harddrive. scrool down to where it says temperature and it will tell you if the HDD is runnin within safty margin.

temp sensor says my HDD is at 63c all the time but smart says this is ok and always passing so i'm not worried. this drive has been at this temp for more than 2 years.

And God said"Let there be light."But then the program crashed because he was trying to access the 'light' property of a NULL universe pointer.

i found a program in another post called speedfan so i could see my computers temp. It says HD0 temp is 62C and temp1 is 53C. is that hot for a p4m 1.8ghz? it feels hot.

OK, I got a different version of Asus Probe to install on my HP 760 desktop which houses an Asus mobo and an 478 socket 400mhz P4 1.8 processor.

It list the CPU temp as 66C
the Mobo as 45C
It doesn't list my HD

It also strangely lists my 12V as 6.756 volts and is giving an alarm. Should I be concerned? Would this thing even boot if the 12V was down to 6?

Edit= this machine has always been hot, and I took it apart, cleaned it and replaced the thermal compound about a week ago.

It'd be lucky to boot if the 12V was down to 11V.

i've got a dual Xeon workstation (2 real, 4 with HT) and the highest i've seen is 60/61C in the summer running a WU on all CPUs but then i'm guessing Xeons are quite efficient, and besides, this is a dell precision 650 with an external fan for each CPU and a guide chute to really suck the air away from the CPUs, feeling the back of the case is like putting your hand infront of a hairdryer lol, another fan in the bottom for the cards, and one on the front, all 120mm :D

as for HDD i have no idea as i've not found any monitoring software that can access SCSI drives

but for graphics cards, well, i've got an nVidia GeForce FX 5900 Ultra, which sits at 75C when idle (2D windows environment) but when hammering it with a decent game at something like 1600x1200 i've seen it go up to around 120C, but that's not even hitting the "start to worry" mark as the "core slowdown threashold" is hardcoded at 140C !!! :-O "slowdown" not shutdown lol
never had a problem with it thou ;) :)
works beautifully :D

My Laptop runs at 55c CPU. IT is an AMD Ahlon 64 3800

My desktop, the X2 4400 sits at about 45c.

Both of these temps are after 24 hours of runing Seti

Yeah, the CPU temp is fine, my Athalon runs at about 60C or 333K ;)

I would be worried aboutthe HDD temp though. Mine used to run at about 50C cause I've got two stacked so I bought a 2nd fan from Radio shack and glued it to the HDD bracket so it blows air between the two. It dropped my operating temp to 40C. Most motherboards have a second set of fan jumpers (Mine are actually labelled "Aux. Fan"). If you board doesn't, you can also get fans that piggy back off an IDE power supply, they're more common on older computers, I've got one that I pulled out of a old P133 cause I know I'll need to install a fan some day and not have any free jumpers...

My AMD Sempron 2400 runs at about 46C idle (case off) and 55C BOINCed (case off) with the case on, the temperatures rise by nearly 10C!!!

Is this far too hot?

If it's not crashing, no.
However having the case on a computer usually only results in a 5 or so degree rise in temperature, not 10.

I have one fan at the front panel of my case blowing air in, and another at the back blowing out. With the case closed my CPU temp is 5-7C lower. The case makes air to flow through all components more efficiently.

I think that all depends on the case. Bad case opened = drop in temperature ; good case opened = rise in temperature.

This is due to the classic Physics effect known as the PVT Triangle.

Pressure, Velocity, Temperature.

With the sides on, air velocity increases, so temp drops.

Stick a suck fan on the front, and an exhaust fan at the back, temp drops.

But.

This may create turbulence over the CPU Fan, causing a Hot Spot ;-)

Ask yourself this question. What does hot air do?

Stick the fans in the right place, or goto http://www.overclockers.co.uk/
and have a ball
