Default Cpu temperature.

I have this exact Heatsink.


When I'm playing Counterstrike 1.6 with 130 fps constant, My cpu is at 53 degrees celcius. Im pretty sure this is high for such a non high graphic game... Should I get a new cpu fan? If so, What would be the best? I don't want to spend a bucket load of money on a water cooling.. Unless I got it for the right price, but I know nothing about them either. Suggestions would help me. By the way : the voltage on my cpu is on DEFAULT : 1.36v Standard 2.0 ghz for my 3800 dual core.

Default Zalman

I've heard and read only good things about the Zalman copper coolers. Planning on getting one for my Pentium D.

Would you buy a car made in mexico ?
So why buy a cooler made in the mexico of asia -> KOREA ?
The cooler is probably junk....like almost everything korean made.

If you want to move slowly to liquid cooling, try a heatpiped radiator.....
Take a look at the ASUS StarICE.....
Also, you may want to buy an extra 80mm fan to screw onto the back of the wind tunnel, so it actually suck out exhaust....
The ASUS StarICE plus...or special edition or whatever comes with the extra fan......
I was confused with this fan.....the thermal paste is actually taped inside the box......so if it doesnt fall out....look inside...or look throught the papers....its in a sugar packet type pouch.....
The Star ICE does come with thermal paste....

It works great on my old p4 server.......
You will have to take apart your motherboard, remove it, to attach the underneath mounting clamp.....thats the only downside....but it works like a charm.....

What you should do is not use developer 1 in cs, and just stick with 100fps.

Do yourself a favor and stop straining your graphics card and type developer 0 in console. It's called devloper for a reason, it's for the people who developed the game... Anywho, that will put less strain on your gfx card, and your temperature should go down a lot.

If for some reason you're not convinced that developer 1 is a horrible thing, go to www.gotfrag.com or www.team3d.net or www.complexityclan.com and make a thread about it there asking about it.

And btw, there's really no difference between 100fps and 130.. so just go with 100 and save your gfx card.

what is he on about :/. korea is one of the world leaders in computer tech. no other country has more gamers die of exhaustion just to prove how dedicated they are to computing. my guess is either the temp reading is innacurate, your case airflow is poor, the HSF has not been installed correctly or you have a very hot room. it shouldn't even reach those temps on the stock cooler under full load.
