Hi all. I would like to know what would be the best cooling method for the GPU and Motherboard? See, I've downloaded this program which monitors the temperatures of the components in my system and according to it, the temperature of my GPU and Motherboard is, like, 57C. This temperature is quite high, I think. I'm thinking of purchasing those VGA Coolers and Motherboard coolers, is this ok? Again, thanks in advance for all the help. Smile

IMHO, I don't think 57 is very high, 70+ is when i'd start to think about it

Oh, I see. Maybe I'm just not used to those figures. Well, atleast I can breathe a little now. Thanks, MrPink. Laughing

Is that 57 under load or idle?

If it's idle then take another reading after the computer has been under heavy load for a few minutes.

It's 57 Idle. After playing a couple of hours it rises to 63-65C.

That is very hot for an Athlon CPU.
One of the most accurate ways to get your temp is to use your PC under load for a while, reboot and then load the BIOS and check the temp.

An Athlon that is idling above 40-45 is a worry. 65-70 is the upper limits for these, although in saying that I have seen an Athlon 6000 hit 150 degrees and is still going strong.

Check airflow and fans in your case. Is the heatsink attached firmly to the CPU and the fan plugged in? Have you applied thermal paste?

Hello Brad, the temperature of 57C is my Video Card, the CPU's temp just plays between 34C when idle and around 45C on load. Cheers!
