Default Processor Temperature

Hi Guys

I just built a new computer, and was wondering what is a good temperature for an AMD Phenom 9850 to be around during normal use, or idling? Not gameplay because obviously that would be a bit higher, mine currently is basically always 51/52 degrees celcius. That is with a few basic programs running and music.....

Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks alot!

Default Re: Processor Temperature

Ya I thought it was a little high too... it is the stock heatsink and fan...... not sure if this matters, but the MOBO temp is 42 degrees celcius, and the video card around 52 as well.... it seems like it is all a little hot... any ideas?

I have three case fans, and the NZXT Apollo case... it seems to move good air, but I am still worried. I am not interested in wasting 1000+ dollars of computer haha. I will probably get a new heatsink for the CPU next time I am down at my buddies, he lives 2 minutes away from a tigerdirect

The rear fan should be blowing out. The front and side fans should be blowing in.

Yeah I am there in Sensor, but all I see is my Seagate hdd.

I downloaded something else. The CPU is about 45C all the time. What's the deal? I'm about to vaccume out the case... some day lol, I have it sitting on a carpet. Could it be my TuniQ Tower is filled with dust?
