Athlon 64 3000 CPU Temperature at 64 degrees Celsius

Hi,
I have recently bought an Athlon 64 3000+ CPU (754pin) (Asrock
K8Upgrade motherboard).
=>I live in India and the ambient temperature now (Winter)is around
27deg. C.
=> I dont have an AC.
=>The BIOS shows my CPU temp. at around 62 deg C and Motherboard temp.
at 51 C.
=>I have 3 fans:1)CPU Fan, 2) Cabinet Fan, and 3)SMPS fan
=>Cool-n-Quite is enabled
Q1.Are these temps. too high ... cause for concern?
Q2. What are the normal range of temps for CPU (Athlon 64 3000+) and
motherboard?
Q3. Is running at 64 degree CPU temp. safe?

Kindly guide me
Thanks in advance

They look way to high. Well, really, the MB (case) temp looks way to high.
You need to get it down to at least within 6C of ambient. Bring the case
temp down and the cpu temp should follow it downwards. To diagnose the
problem, take the side cover off the case and see what happens to the
temps. Sounds like you have case and PSU fan blowing the same way which
pretty much elimnates the effectiveness of either. I've got 1 case fan in
mine mounted at lower front as an intake, and the PSu fan at top as an
exhaust fan. I have cleared all obstructions for the fornt intake fan by
cutting out the metal and opening the area of the front bezel so the fan
won't starve for air. With 2 HD's, floppy, DVDwriter, and 4 hot as heck
HDTV tuner cards in this box, here's my temps with only one case fan at
lower front. Ambient is about 24C

CPU Temp: +34°C
M/B Temp: +34°C

The temperatures are too high. I would recommend that the CPU temperature
remain below 60 C (preferably below 55 C).

What sort of CPU fan are you using?

What sort of case and case fans are you using?

Did you build this system yourself?

Way too high.

When you're dealing with office temperatures that can shoot up to 30-35C
you can't skimp on case / fans / airflow. My office runs between 24-30C
during the year. Due to a good case (Antec p180) and good airflow my
internal case temperatures run 35-40C, the hard drives are at 40-45C and
the CPU runs at 45-50C.

- Use a larger case (more internal space means less concentrated heat).
- Underclock the system.
- Use 5400rpm drives instead of 7200rpm drives (not always possible).
- Bundle cables (use rounded cables when possible) to keep airflow up.

Did you enable Cool n' Quiet and see if that brings the temps down?

It would only be 2-3C at idle.

My experiences indicates differently; in most of the builds I see a
difference of 6 to 8 degrees Celsius. The machine I am currently using to
send this from runs at 33 degrees mobo, 34 degrees proc with CnC. enabled.
When I turn it off, it goes to 38 degrees mobo and 41 degrees proc. All
temps are at idle. At load, the difference is even greater. I have it in
and Antec P160, with a single 120mm intake and a single 120mm output fan;
the CPU cooler is a standard fin and fan type. I find these figures to be
common for most of the AMD builds. I don't even want to discuss the
outrageous temps I get from Intel builds. I think Intel is partially
responsible for global warming (I am joking of course...).

Hmm. It must be my setup. I have a heatpipe tower cooler with no fan. I made
a duct from it to the case fan with aluminum tape. Possibly this is
super-efficient. It idles at 26-28C.

Ya! :)
