@0mega

I dust out my case every 2 months or so. I only have 2 80mm intakes which are filtered, and 3 80mm exhausts. Neway, it doesn't help too much, and when I lower the voltage on the fan it gets this really irritating whistling sound, and the higher it gets (the voltage) the more it transforms into a jet engine sound

I use Arctic Silver 5 which was applied about a half a year ago, and I have the cooler titghtened down pretty good with custom screews (the ones that came with the cooler wouldn't fit).

The air flow is great, I have all the cables tied down and out of the way. I was planning on upgrading to some plastic tubing soon (mainly for looks, but should help a bit more in airflow).

Temps are not too bad. when I run it at stock voltage and speed the cpu stays between 38-48C at idle/load or so when my room temp is around 28C. However, I don't know how true that is anymore because I use speedfan to measure the temps but this new application called core temp (which is said to be more accurate) reports different readings on a 3-7C scale


I do have the AC on and running, but my room is located upstairs and by the time the air reaches up here it has gone all through the house (I am the last room it goes to). Even by shutting off some of the smaller rooms like bathroom and other rooms in the house and opening mine up it's stall hard to cool my room. I live on the east cost of Texas on an island and it's pretty damn tropical down here. During the summer my room can be anywhere up to 34C.

P.S. Oh yeah, my system specs =P
X2 3800+ @ 2.4Ghz
Abit Fatal1ty AN8 SLI
2gb Corsair Twin DDR-400 @ DDR-333
XFX 7800GT @ 480/1200
Creative Audigy ZS
2x160gb Seagate HDs
2xNEC DVD+-R/RW drives

The custom screw thign might be whats killing you :P ive noticed, that applying extra pressure to my HSF only makes thigns worse, then when i let off, the AS5 shifts and gets horrible :P

in the summer when my computer was upstairs i knew your pain :P my room was about the same :P and before the duct i IDLED at like 50 0_0 then i had to put a fricking DESKFAN blowing air into my 3 empty drive bays :lol: i also had a very ghetto duct to route that air right over the CPU and ram but dont have any pics Cardboard owns. lmfao

as with the other person i tried helping, check your TIM or thermal paste application. the 3200+ AM2 is a 62w part so that heatsink should be VERY capable... unless oyur overclocking which im assumignyou havent as you didnt mention it :P

Hope it helps

Also, dude with hyper 6+, if your fans are making that much noise, try dusting them. dust might be caught in the bearings :P and check your TIM/paste as well 0_0 55 is REALLY high with that cooler 0_0 airflow shouldnt be bad as your in a lian li :S oh wait your room temperature is 28 0_0 holy hell turn on the AC :P

but i got no a/c and i live in a tropical climate.... room temp rises up to 40C.... so basically my system temp rise... alot.... even vcrise to 79-80C.... huhuhu

Overclocking on STOCK cooling should be winning!

You're funny Omega, but it looks like you really want to win this. Who doesn't

Anyhow, I think people that really deserve to win first of all, should be an overclocker... (we all are ) Second of all, should be running on stock oem cooling... (poor soul... like me) And lastly but not least, have poor cooling resulting in high temperature in the system... (hot as hell like my idle 41C :grum


Now on to the specs...

ASUS A8N32-SLi Deluxe Gamer Edition (please gimme the cooler that matches this )
AMD Athlon64 3700+ oc'd @ 2.75GHz (250*11)
Platinum 1GB DDR Dual Channel Ram @ DDR458 2.5-3-3-5 (although the name, these are value rams)
MSi NX6600GT oc'd @ 550MHz/1090MHz (gfx card already poor, processor is slowing it down even more)
2x250GB Maxtor SATA2 HDD @ RAID0 (only goodies in this system)
2 Fans (trying to cool but makes too much noise)

Room temp 24-26C
CPU @ idle 41C (in BIOS it shows 44C)
CPU under load can reach up to 52C


This is my CPU... currently sleeping @ 41C



There's a side fan to cool my case... but doesn't seem to do much



There's also a top fan in the case... I tried to put this fan on the rear also, but it didn't help.

im not trying to be funny, im trying to help people :P i can help myself anymore, ive got the best TIM application yet, but i cant overclock at all :P my temps without the duct are worse than yours using the STOCK COOLER 0_0

without the duct my system gets unstable sometimes which is REALLY depressing considering i paid 30 bucks for this >_<

maybe you should switch back to stock fan... maybe something else is wrong... maybe you're one of those that shouldn't tetter with their hardwares

okay... well said but if u want u can go at my place and check my ceiling height.... and my ceiling materials....

my roof is made out of galvanized steel... and my ceiling is just 7ft.... i got a window but its to narrow... and i got no other place to put my pc but my room... i even have an industrial type electical fan and a ventilation fan... but still it doesnt help much.
