This is a split board - You can return to the Split List for other boards.

Anything I can do? ( maybe OC, but core temps already high)

--------Was wondering if it would be possible at all to overclock anything here, but this is all running with pretty much idle; just with MSE on, Google Chrome open, and of course speccy running.

It is hot in my room. at the moment cause my door is closed. But I want to know if everything looks normal.

69C at idle? That's quite high. Even when my room is 80F-90F, my processor never/very rarely exceeds 60C.

Obviously an older computer. Maybe a good dusting out would improve your temperatures a little. A modest overclock would probably breathe a little life into that computer, but that's probably not going to happen with those kinds of idle temps. A good cleaning and a good CPU cooler would probably do the trick. Not sure if it's worth putting money towards that rig, though, so you'd probably want to make sure you get a CPU cooler that's compatible with more recent CPU sockets.

7600 GTs in SLI? That's interesting.

(Can't edit my posts with this account)

I should also mention that I have an i7-920 @ 3.61 GHz with a Noctua NH-D14 attached, so it obviously better never exceed 60C.

Okay spent almost an hour cleaning the top of the CPU heatsink, TONS of dust, also cleaned the GPU. (Used que-tips) Always worked for me; maybe isnt the best way but...screw it. Its an older computer.

Anyways, when I boot up I got: Event Type: Error

Windows XP, any idea what it means? Hopefully I didnt cause any static or accidentally unplug anything... I did possibly switch the sli GPUs around so maybe my system just got confused; it does seem isolated so far, no errors after that. So I think Im okay

Good news is, cpu is running @ 57 C idle >.< still hot but not as hot. God I need a new PC.
