I'm running a 2.8Ghz Intel processor in an asus pundit (with 512mb ram, 120gb hdd, 8x dvdrw) the cpu temp is around 65 C. Fro running asus probe I see that the max reccommended temp is 77 C but I've been reading that a cpu temp of 40-50 C is best.
The Pundit is quite compact so tis to be expected that its a bit hotter than usual but is this too hot? and what can i do about it?
the pundit came with its own fan as did my intel 2.8 so i replaced the pundit cpu fan with the intel, was this wise should I put it back in again?
what other ways could I go about cooling this system down, seems as it is so small.
any clues would be a great help.
