Hello techpowerup!!!! Im new here and please tell me if u think i dont do or understande something right. Before i start....im german and im not a professional in english so just tell me if u dont understand something. I have a old computer i use basicly for surfing, wolfenstein enemy territory and some other things. But in the last time i recognized, that the CPU temps where really high!!! I came on the idea to check it after the fans where on 100% the whole day!!!! (Headache) !!!!! And the results SHOCKED ME!!!!!! 148 Fahrenheit ( 64 Celsius)-Desktop 160 Fahrenheit (71 Celsius)-Gaming/HD Videos So i went to frys and got me some "Ceramique by AS" cause i thought its bec of the old thermal compoound. After i puted i on verry carefully and turned on the computer the bios was telling me 140 Fahrenheit (60 Celsius). At the desktop 144 (62). So my average CPU temperature decreased a litle but....... Isin't that kinda high??? I have a Case fan and a big Aluminium Heatsink with ?Cooler Master Fan?--->not shure So are these Temps normal for my system or to high? Should i buy me a new heatsink/cooler/case fan? Any other ideas how to keep the system cool and quiet? A BIG THANK U FOR READING MY POST AND ANY HELP!!!!!!!!
