Very high CPU temps..
I just built a new computer.
ABit UL8 motherboard
AMD Athlon 3200+ 2.0GHz CPU
One side 80mm fan, one top 80mm fan, one rear 120mm fan
According to the ABit EQ, my CPU is running at 75*C, about 167*F
This is bad. This is right from the box, so everything is stock.
My system is running about 21*C, but my CPU is 75*.
I didn't put any thermal paste on the CPU/heatsinc, because there appeared to be some on the heatsinc already. Should I put some thermal paste on?
My fan setup is:
Side 80mm - intake
Top 80mm - exhaust
Rear 120mm - exhaust
But I really don't think fan placement will set my CPU that to 75*C.
It is 75*C at idle, by the way.
Any help is extremely appreciated, thanks.
