ya pretty sure your temps are higher then that. that is around average room tempature and w/ a quad you will never get room temp no matter how hard you try
I just took a look at my temp's again and they now average to 21.5, however it is probably a little cooler this morning than last night. Last night they averaged 24 degrees with the new (cheap) fan.
I am getting these readings from two different programs, Core Temp and PC Wizard 2008. Wizard is reading .5 degree cooler than Core Temp.
The temperature in my room right now is 18 degrees celcius, and no I don't live in Antarctica, I actually live in San Diego, it just happens to be cool today, and always keep my house cool, but I don't have any air conditioners running.
I am using an Antec 900 case with stock fans all running on low.
I ran Prime95 for about a half hour last night and the highest the temp got was 42 degrees celcius. However I did not know about a quad mod, so that torture test may be irrelevant, it certainly did not seem to be putting any strain I could see on the PC, as I kept using the internet an iTunes as it was running.
And I don't blame you guys for saying the fan is crap, I would have thought the same thing, but for my needs (no gaming) it seems to work almost as good as the more expensive one I was using. That's why I posted this.
