32C ok temp for 300a at 450 on BH6
I am running a 300a at 450 on a BH6. The mobo temp probe reads 32C all the time. Doesn't if FSB is 66 or 100 still reads 31-32C. I have retail 300a with OEM Intel heat sink/fan combo and 1 case fan suckin in and PS blowing out. Is 32C within normal operating temp?
I don't rely on the BIOS temp read out. I actually have a thermometer probe attached to the heatsink and another that monitor air temp in the case. On a hot day, it goes much higher than 32C. The difference is about 10C between air in and CPU temp. About 6C difference between air in and out.
I have mine running a few months now.
My BX6-2 P-II 450 @ 527 has the same cooling. It reports 37C/98F much of the time. The adjustable Temp Warning in the BIOS comes set for 122F! I don't worry about a mere 98F!
Well after Roy's post I feel prety good about mine. The motherboard temp is holding steady at 91F. I to have a Thermometer with a probe inbeded in the heatsink witch reads between 76.4F and 79.5F depending on what apps I am running. I am installing one more fan tommorow just to be safe though
