    Expected temp for Prescott w/ OEM HSF???


    Hi All,

    Does anyone know what's the expected temperature with OEM HSF?

    * Asus P5GD2 (775)
    * 2.8GHz (DO stepping)

    I have just installed it over the weekend and it's running 55'C idle, and 75'C load!

    * I have turned Q-Fan off - the CPU fan is running steadily at 4500rpm
    * I have left the case open while doing this test
    * Ambient temperature of last night is around 17'C ?

    If this is NOT normal with OEM HSF, what could I be doing wrong? I'd like to sort this out before I install an aftermarket HSF.

    Thanks in advance!

    Cheers,

    David

    Loose Plug...


    Figured it out... one of the HSF plug was loose... prob. when I was moving the PC around...

    Now it looks a bit normal - around 47'C idle and 60'C load.. phew.... (btw, this is even with o/c to 3.2GHz)

    with case closed the load temp goes up to 69'C.... unfortunately I've got an old Al case that does not take a rear case fan..

    Now waiting to get my hands on Arctic Cooler Freezer 7.... :-)
