Sorry there mate, Im alittle lost o_O
Is that you system temps or the HD? Im using motherboard monitor for my temps, does anyone know if that is accurate? My temps seem to be much lower on MBM than when I use Fuzzy Logic from MSI. This is from my new case I got from Christams, which has 2 case fans.

thats my system temp and cpu temp, well actually, have no idea if that is accurate, cuz thats the stock sensors that came with mobo and case. All I know is that the side window fan just blows out cool air. Just got a crap oc'ing mobo tho.:D

damn, how were u able to get below 30's temps. I have a volcano 7 and the best it could do when running at full speed is 44 C. Im still using the three fans that came with my antec1080 case. Those are awesome temps. How loud is it? tell me ur secret;)

-edit-- heh, i forgot ur using a P4.

well, thats just idle speed, and the Volcano 7+ is only running the lowest slowest setting. My computer just likes to do that I guess.:D

maybe it's because your 3.3v rail is 0.5 volts off!

I just thought I would add something here, because my temps were very good tonight. The reason...my flat is freezing tonight, our heater here doesnt work.

Not bad temps after 5hrs of SpearHead, keep in mind this is a 300MHz overclock on air cooling :afro:

That is the system temp. The cpu temp is the one with the check mark ;)

[eNv]-LORD-eX-Bu, do You have your computer in a freezer? Heck, my computer (see sig) is running 25/25 (CPU/Case) when using vCool. It's only 17 degrees Celsius in my room. Note though that my motherboard does not read the CPU temp from the XP's internal diode, but inside the socket. So the actual temp is higher.

Your should reading the internal diode, as You have a P4... I'd want one of them too...

Cheers,

Jan
