In the past month or so I didn't even think twice about this, but what is a reasonable temperature for the NB?
My PC has been stable and running [email protected]
SMP almost 24/7.
Both the HSF and rear case fan are spinning at 800 RPM.
While folding, CPU = 35 Â°C, NB = 62 Â°C.
Idle, CPU = 28 Â°C, NB = 35 Â°C (the NB temp drops really quick to 36 Â°C in less then a second).
I think it's safe, the max CPU temp is rated 72 Â°C (X2 5200+) and I read somewhere, NB can withstand higher temps then CPU's.
But I don't know how well it handles these temperatures for long periods.
Is it OK...? Or should I run the fans faster for additional cooling?
At the moment, the PC is not inaudible but it doesn't attract attention when the radio on.
(Hm.. it's also possible I configured speedfan incorrectly)
