Cheers for the tips on the fans, the bios says the same,and it seems to get my processor right too. I have an atholn 2000xp in it and that stays nice and cool, usually in the low 30s.
Do you know where the heat is generated on the mobo, it doesn't really seem that hot if i open it straight after an intensive session and i was wondering if the sensor could be close to my power supply, its the only thing that really seems to get hot in there.
Havent got that asus probe installed i dont think, thought i installed everything off the disk but ill have to check that in the morning..
Got an exhaust fan taking the hot air out but have got one specifically on the card (g-force 4 mx) ... should that be positioned directly under the vga card cos its currently under a mpeg card that has no cooling devices of its own.
Does the g-force 4 generate a lot of heat... its a fairly cheap version (64 meg with a clock of around 200)?
I made a special effort to cool my processor, put the best thermal paste i could find and i have a good heatsink.. its just the board temperature which seems to be way out.
I have a really hot power supply but obviously using fans to cool the system would be cheaper than getting a new one.. The board isnt constantly running at 55, that jus an example of a hot day when its been on for a while... hopefully next year its going to be an always on system so i need to get the problem sorted.
Cheers for the tips folks, ive got a few things to try now and any further suggestions are welcome.
