My new build system has been up and running now for over a week and so far, everything is running as it should be with no errors or bsods.
I have Q6600 that appears to be running at a temp of between 34c and 41c.
I have 4gb of GEIL black dragon 8500 ram without any aftermarket cooling.
My OS sata drive is always between 30c and 36c, and my other 2 x sata drives are always between 30c and 33c.
The 320gb OS drive is ALWAYS 2 - 3 degrees celsius higher than the other two 500gb drives.
Obviously these temps are affected by climatic conditions such as central heating etc, , but even with the house very hot and central heating on full, , these temps only increase by a further 1 degree or so.
Are these sort of temps acceptable or should i be looking at a better cooling solution.
The cpu has a ASUS V-60 cooler/fan,to go with the ASUS P5Q PRO motherboard.
The coolermaster case has 2 x 80mm front intake fans blowing on 2 of the 3 hdds, and one 80mm rear exhaust fan.
I also have installed a ZALMAN MFC2 digital temp/fan controller, , which i hope is accurate.
Look forward to a little clarity on average temperature values on this system.
Many thanks, kev
