|I have a Dell XPS Gen 4. |
Intel Pentium 4 640, 3.20ghz. Prescott.
Nvidia GeFroce 9600GT.
According to my Nvidia system monitor, my CPU Tc Temp is 65c. Strange thing is, according to this monitor my CPU temp has never changed. Since ive installed the monitor, its always said 65c. Faulty monitor/sensor or is that truely the case?
GPU Temp has been sitting around 50c idle and up to 61c under load (never seen it pass 61c)
I normally dont run the AC in my house, so in the summer the temps will go up just from room temp going up (the temps above ARE summer temps)
The same monitor has my Case Temp at 65c, which ive also yet see change.
Dell XPS has a shroud type thing with 2 92mmx38mm fans in them, one blowing air in and one pushing air out. It slips over the CPU Heatsink. Can be seen here (not MY XPS, but an inside look of one) http://img.dell.com/images/global/p...
Also has a fan on the side panel, think this one is 80mm, which is also incased in a black plastic shroud that extends the length of the panel towards the front of the case. Can also be slightly seen in the above pic, on the right panel on the bottom (under the smaller green shroud)
What do you think of my temps? are they normal?
Also thought about getting some slot fans for some extra exhaust.
PCI slot case blower, heard some reports that putting this in the PCI slot under your Gcard will help cool it, but others saying it wont do much.
5.25-inch Cross Flow System Fan:
Any input is appreciated
