Hi people,

I have a question about Core 2 Quad, I bought some time the complete PC HP Elite Desktop m9265, it's running really good so for sure HP rocks, but recently I am not sure if the cooler is enough http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...

I have upgraded my GFX card to GTX 470 and most of the time is cooler than CPU itself, I have experience that normally it's other way around.

Do you think that to be nearly idle is ok to have about 60 - 65 degrees on processor? the GPU has some 57 - 60 is it ok also? if not - for CPU, is there some really good cooler for LGA 775 which is more than enough for cooling? (I am thinking about upgrade to top of the 775 line Xeon)

Thanks in advance, really like this forum, you are cool !

"it's running really good so for sure HP rocks"

That comment made me laugh, thanks.

"I am thinking about upgrade to top of the 775 line Xeon"

That comment was almost as good.

"...top of the 775 line Xeon"

Weren't those the C2D E7000/E8000 & Pentium Dual-Core E5000 slugs that Intel rebranded to Xeon with a crayola?

lol, pretty much, but then again Jam(and assuming skipcox) is an AMD/ATi fan so I guess it's difficult for him. He still hasn't gasped the difference between a DDR FSB, and a QDR FSB, AMD people... heh, j/k.

In all seriousness, that is a bit high. Pop open the case, clean out all the dust with a can of air, and make sure the heatsink is properly seated. If everything is clean and all, then that's just the temp it will run at. OEM's like HP build machines that barely function with-in specs and almost always use proprietary hardware too. So unless you want to butcher the casing, and void the warranty, you are more than likely stuck with the OEM heatsink/fan. Sorry.

Oh.. you can always buy some arctic silver heatsink compound and replace the stock HP junk under the heatsink, might buy you 1-2 deg.

Why would you assume I'm an ATI/AMD fan? Because I use products from both?

I use products from Intel, nvidia, palm, etc. Does that make me a fan of Intel/nvidia too?

Actually, I'm a fan of the best machines for the least money and...

no manufactured machine falls into that category
no LGA775 Xeon falls into that category
no Mac falls into that category

Outlander
I already open it as my warranty ends in one month, I have returned from vacation and I am going to open as you say and clean all what I can.

For the rest, I understand that jam likes something, but there is no reason to post here if it's not relevant.
Anyway Outlander, thanks for you support, I guess you are one of the reasonable people in here. I will follow up later on, once I have all clean and check speedfan/coretemp results.
