hi, i have no issue at the moment, but im just curious, what is considered a load to test cpu temps under, all i have been doing with my pc is watching videos, i havent gotten around to installing icewind dale (since i just built my system), so i am wondering what a decent load is, right now i get 47*C idle
for my cpu (Sempron 2500+) and 27*C case temp at idle. i have read that the max temp for the sempron 2500+ is 90*C confirm?
im just wondering if 47*C is a bit high for an idle temp.
im using an ultra heatsink and fan for the cooler its a dual material heatsink copper base and aluminum fins, and a high airflow oversized fan (at least i think it is) and i am using arctic silver 5 thermal compound.
in a short while im going to add a ducting system to my cpu fan to bring in cooler outside air directly onto the heatsink
