Okay, I'd reseat and add a fan to the back panel.

The case doesn't seem to have much flow, so youre probably getting a hot pocket. Staples/bestbuy/etc has them for like 20 bucks at most, or cheaper from a local shop.

Gotta get the heat out.

My CPU went down to 27 celsius idle and my case feels like a freaking ice cube, so eh I think the air flow is good, but my cpu heat sink just isn't good or isn't applied right.

Wishful thinking maybe, but hehe... :P

I use Speedfan and Everest, as well as HWmonitor. They all display the same temperature readings.

And I don't know if my cpu ever reaches 100% while gaming, but that's the only intensive thing I do with my computer. I game, browse the web, and watch videos.

D/l prime95. It'll stress each core individually

Is it wise to stress the cores out now though? I don't want to fry them.

Also this is peculiar. It turns out I'm on an XFX Nforce 630i, not the 750i. This board only has two RAM slots, so why am I in single channel mode? There's no other RAM slot to move them around in for dual channel.

probably not a good idea to stress. But after you cooler down.

Yeah.

And do you know what's up with my RAM being single channel ?
