It is different depending on your BIOS. You should check your manual. Most likely it is set to an auto setting by default.


You could adjust it from inside Windows with a program like this: Speedfan

Hi there,

From my understanding, it wouldn't be worth adding an aftermarket cooler (such as the Arctic Cooler in question) unless you are overclocking. When you start overclocking, the Arctic Cooler should start showing its better side, allowing you to hit higher overclocks whilst keeping stable.

Alternatively, I've had some friends who've added an aftermarket cooler simply because:
  • It looks better
  • It's quieter
Cheers

Troy

It's not worth your time to determine if it is another issue or not?

Personally, I would be really upset if I bought/RMAed a second cooler only to get the same result.

When you are not overclocking, the CPU will not have a high heat output because you have not increased the voltage applied to the CPU. You are not going to see temps much lower then what you posted. If you wish to drop temperatures further I suggest you do the following.
  • Clean up the case wires
  • Add some case fans
  • Lower temperature of the room or move the PC away from a heater if it's near one

Also, double check to make sure it is installed correctly. You never answered my question earlier about which way the fan is facing.
