I was talking with a good friend of mine about CPU fans. He was telling me that he just got a new CPU fan and I told him I never installed one on my CPU and that Im just using the heatsink. I idle usually under 20*C at stock speeds and under 25*C at 3.8GHz. The temps have been like this since the day I built the computer. My friend is basically convinced that I have a bad sensor on the board but i dont think that at all. Ive had the computer nearly 3 years and if something was going to melt, im sure it would have by now. Id like the community to weigh in on this and give me their thoughts. I should mention that the CPU is an X3350 (server version of the Q9450) and the HS is a Scythe Ninja and it doesnt get hot to the touch. So lemme know what you all think. Whether you think its normal, you agree theres a bad sensor, or whatever else. Thanks for the replies.
