Hi, my prob is that my CPU is running very high, can you tell me the best settings to place my ATI Radeon Graphics on to maybe reduce the temp, or is there another way ? thanks for any help, and please tell me in laymans terms, just in case.
I lost 2 HDD's to heat, I learnt the hard way, you can never have enough fans. I have 5. 1 at the front, sucking air in. 1 at the back, blowing air out. 1 on the CPU. 1 on each of the internal HDD's The one at the back and the one on the CPU have heat sensors. Enabling the fans to speed up and/or slow down as necessary.
Hi, thank you for your interest in my prob. I have 4no fans, one on CPU, one on Graphics card, one on power supply, and last but not least one on pc itself extracting the internal heat to outside. Here are my pc specs as follows;
Processor Model : AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+ Speed : 2.10GHz Cores per Processor : 2 Unit(s) Threads per Core : 1 Unit(s) Type : Dual-Core System System : System manufacturer System Product Name Mainboard : ASUSTeK Computer INC. A8N-SLI Premium Bus(es) : PCI PCIe IMB USB FireWire/1394 i2c/SMBus Multi-Processor (MP) Support : No Multi-Processor Advanced PIC (APIC) : Yes System BIOS : Phoenix Technologies, LTD ASUS A8N-SLI Premium ACPI BIOS Revision 1008 Total Memory : 3GB DDR
Chipset Model : AMD Athlon 64 / Opteron HyperTransport Technology Configuration Front Side Bus Speed : 2x 1.05GHz (2.10GHz) Total Memory : 3GB DDR Memory Bus Speed : 2x 175MHz (350MHz) Video System Adapter : ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series (2GB, PCIe 2.00 x16, PS3.0, VS3.0)
best to have a fan at the front of the case drawing cold air in, then you have a stream of air crossing over all the stuff inside. or move everything into a better case, bit of a hassle but easy to do.
