Default Ayudame con mi computadora!

That's spanish for help me with my computer.

anyway my problem is I BELIEVE my cpu is running hotter than it should. it usually stays at 47 C on idle and 54 on load. I dont know whats up, i have 5 fans, i used AS5. I do live in a somewhat cold climate so the outside couldnt be affecting it. It's a S754 Newcastle AMD 3400. There aren't any extra cords within two inches of the heatsink/cpu. Also my mobo is a nf3 lanparty board..

Thanks in advance.

Your temps sound just fine if your using the stock heatsink/fan.

Oh and don't worry till its max temp starts hitting 60C....

That is a little warm. How much Arctic Silver did you use? You should use no more than the size of a grain of rice directly in the middle of the cpu. When you clamp on the HSF, it will spread out to the needed areas on it's own.

What kind of airflow do you have in your case? You should have intake on the front and exhaust on the back. Also clean up your cables, tie them up, stick them off to the side. Cables greatly obscure your airflow. You want air comming in the front, going over your components, and exiting the rear.
