athlon 64 x2 4400+ toledo

Postby akronik » Sat Jul 14, 2007 9:21 pm

on core 1 i have a temperature of 39 to 41 celcius. core 2 46 to 50 celcius. is this normal under idle with no programs or apps running? its around 5 percent cpu usage. this is my first build i did little over a year ago. the fans are all new. i was running sli but the other card packed it in. im using the paste that came on the cpu when i bought it. would it be worth taking my computer apart to change the thermal paste? it runs alright but i am a little worried about it overheating when im playing games or converting video which i do alot of. any help is much appreciated

idle temps dont count for anything.

And to have a couple degree difference in each core is fine.
