So I purchased a gx280 . Finding out that this model tends to have a very loud fan, so I decided to get a program to limit the noise, and it worked, but im afraid that It might overheat and just explode one day.

The fan is going at around 3000 rpm, and the temp of the unit is as follow

(gerforce 8400gs)GPU : 55 c
HDO:48C
CORE : 56 C
AMBEINT: 0 C

this is on idle.

When I start playing games on the pc ( PES 2009, Half Life 2) it goes to around 65C Average.

I'm wondering if this is ok and nothing will overheat if my fan is running at a stead 3000 rpm.

thanks

Alrighty then.
In my opinion, your CPU idle temperature is too high at 52C.
For your processor, depending on socket type, max temps are listed at 69C - 75C.
While installing new card, did you clean the case inside?

but the core still refers to the video card, and yes i did clean inside prior to installing it.

I'm wondering if this is ok and nothing will overheat if my fan is running at a stead 3000 rpm.

So, it doesn't list CPU temperature.
Try RightMark CPU Clock Utility (RMClock): http://cpu.rightmark.../download.shtml

Maybe sensor is missing, or malfunctioning. Try this one: http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/
