my old amd system used to idel @ around 43 and at load around 68, now i have gone to intel @ idel my temps are core 0, 23c core 1, 19c, and at laod neither go over 34, is this right for intel? i really dont know they seam way to low to me, anyone else have this mobo with an I3 550 ? how about overclocking, if my true temps are right im thinking this would be a good o/c,er many thanks

What software are you using? Use Speccy: http://www.filehippo.com/search?q=speccy or

CoreTemp: http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/ to get the real actual temps.

Those temps doesn't mean anything when it comes to overclocking. When you overclock,
you're gonna need a very good HSF or a watercooling loop to ensure stable temps, and
of course perfect push/pull for airflow via the case unit,
Just because you have good idle temps, is nothing in real money when it comes to OC'ing.

....I'm back, but only as a part-timer... :)

thanks for your reply, i do use CoreTemp: i just tryed that other program but i also use everest pro and they all say the same temps, 23, 19 @ idel if i run a game like black ops for and hour or stress the cpu my teps only reach a max of around 34c, is intel i3's suposed to run this cool, i know the cooler im useing is a good one and built for o/c i gues i would like to know what safe temps i could go up to with a o/c what is saff for i3 550, must say this cooler is masive

If under load it only reaches the 30's, either the temp readings are wrong ( ie. maybe a bios update is needed ) or your CPU cooler is amazing.

If it is really that low, you have some good overclocking headroom

thanks for the reply, i looked at the temps in bios and while in there the temps are only 20c on core o and 17 on core 1, i did the bios update a few weeks ago when i built this system, i gues the temps are low in there as no windows loaded while in bios, i was going to go with the h50 water cooler but reading some reviews made my mind up for the cooler im useing it is built for overclocking for the i7 but i seen it and just had to have it as it fitted my socket and looked mental

>> Re: new system build, temps and o/c

If the core temps are running BELOW AMBIENT, then something is wrong/uncalibrated with either your sensors or the program.

For example, if your room ambient is 23C, and your core temp is 19C, that's a physical impossibility unless you're using a chilling type of cooling system. Simply radiating air heat-sink or water-cooling heatsink heat into ambient air will not produce any cooling below air ambient.


edit:
typo fix

CPU temperature monitors are not the most accurate things around...

i have done a little o/c to see how the temp go and so far im running my i3 550 stock 3.20Ghz up to 4.60Ghz but im not sure what to do with my ram or qpi settings any help :-) thanks

forgot to say, my temps @ 4.60Ghz are core 0, 27c and core 1, 22c if i run a burin test for an hour the temps go to core 0, 57c max core 1, 48c max both fans on the cpu cooler are running @ 1505 RPM
