    94'c???? What GPU is this?? it better not be a GTX480. my 6970s hit about 88'c but the fan rarely goes over 35%. Need to make a habit of cranking the fans to 40%+ before gaming

    gts 250

    Their at 95%, it's just a crappy design by zotac, but i won't change it as it's safe to 105'c (officially) and i want to keep my warranty

    temps seems quite high cheesy,but your gpu might be adding heat to your case,that the exhuast fan isnt taking away-if that makes sense.

    that's not good cheesy... 94+c gpu... remove the cooler and buy a better one.
    keep the other one in case it dies and you wish to replace it with the warranty

    Damn, I never let any GPU go over 60 deg. I'd rather battle the sound of a fan at 70%.

    Shame it won't unlock :p does run cool, I've got a couple of temperature sensors here. I know they're not any more reliable than HWMonitor but it sits at 30 deg. too. The thing is, there's 3 measurements, "CPU", "CPU Core1" and "CPU Core2" and they're all between 30 and 40. I'll have another check later.

    BWaaaahhhahaaahaaa deal's off! Cheers for the £8, I'm doing a runner!!!

    Dagnammit!
    I got scuppered by the Folkestone Fiend!

    the 555 seems like a good chip sam,i'd expect temps to be much higher than that with any air cooler.

    the winter sucks.
    you just can't take 20c heat. try living down here in the south... was 29c today where i'm at.
    heat is good. cold is bad. how can anybody enjoy being cold?

    NO, the air goes into the card, then out through the vents in the back

    haha
    ok so what takes the hot air away from the back of the card?
    in a typical convection situation,where does heat go?

    spectrum it was 28c here today,getting a nice tan and loving it :D

    Advantage for typical boys in heat= The misses wear shorts or skirts and other things to show their amazing figure or for the individuals be pervs on girls
    Disadvantage for us boys= we sweat like a b*tch and it looks disgusting lol,we get lazy aswell. Comp temp increase by like 5-10C or something.
    More electrical heat= more dust.

    Advantage in cold= Us boys can look bad ass in our fancy jackets and jeans or whatever.
    Comp temp be ace cold too.
    We get more serious and try do things to warm ourselves like..i don't know exercise??
    Disadvantage= Our Misses or girls don't show their figures off for us boys.

    Typically upwards, but due to size of my comp desk, and the positioning of my exhaust fans, sideaways where it then pools under the keyboard tray and heats up my leg

    I was expecting that, but during the last hot period over Easter people just brought their grandparents off the cupboard for a bit of airing. I was sorely disappointed.

    Where I come from its almost always 25-30C with almost 100% humidity. I am at the south, BBC was reporting 29C too. Obviously after living in perpetual summer I prefer winter.

    I am more south then you, you are wrong, there has been some cold as well as some warm.

    Overall, i think the weather is great, apart from the fact that my pc now needs some new heatsinks

    I mean the CPU temps. Unbelievably low :p
    But I haven't OC'ed or unlocked it so just 2 cores with a beasty HSF.

    I would have thought these temps were blatantly wrong but usually when the sensor sticks on these CPU's, it's at 128deg., not at around 30 so it might actually be accurate.

    Scam, how many athlon ii and phenom ii chips have you owned?

    'Cause theres a very well known problem with the ore emp sensors, your actual max temp is still cold at 44c thoughc

    edit:i may not of made it clear, through experiance and tpu i know most amd core temp degree readong are 10-15c below what they shoould be, you have.to use the corrected motherboard reading, i have found these to generally be very accurate and even if they are slightly in!curate they are the basis for thermal throttoling etc.

    1GB at desktop? hmmmn im in game right now with it alt tabbed but i know mine is usually higher than that.
    AMD temp sensors are always fubar, some work some dont.

    Yeah well motherboard bios temps are always more accurate.
