The system - main elements
Thermalright Ultra 120 extreme with S-flex fan (1600 rpm currently set to 1100 rpm)
Transcend DDR2-800 RAM (1GB x 2)
Asus EN8600GT Silent (passive cooled)
Antec P150 case
I`m based in Tokyo and the computer is a room with no aircon and lots of window. I have a thermometer in the room and current ambient temps are getting up to about 35 degrees C.
At 35 deg C ambient temp I'm getting the following CPU and Mobo temps
CPU 48 degrees C (Core temp & RM clock)
Mobo 43 degrees C (speedfan)
load (running othos)
CPU 60-62 deg C
Mobo 45-46 deg C
When the ambient temp drops to about 25 degrees C the CPU idles at about 41 degrees C. I increased the fan speed at load on the CPU but it only reduces the temp by 1 degree!
These high summer temps make me feel that I would be silly to try and overclock, but I figured I would I ask people more knowledgable than myself before completely abandoning the idea.
What do you think?
