Hi all, just a quick question on my CPU temp when running SL when I can get it working on good days while I wait for my replacement parts as mentioned in a previous post. I have just done a deep PC clean, using my air compressor wondering if it was the CPU's fan which was blocked with dust. I am running 4 fans, one on the back, 2 on the front, and one on the side. The 2 front and side are intakes, the back is the rear exhaust fan. My Current cooler is an "Intel Original E97378 LGA1155/1156 Aluminum/Copper CPU Heatsink, P/N # E97378 " when running secondlife, i hit temperatures of 46C When in my skybox, but in sims with more than a simplistic skybox I hit around 64C (With shadows on, I hit 70C) I hit these temperatures before cleaning along with hitting the same after cleaning, I took off the CPU fan when cleaning and made sure it was correctly installed. The Thermal paste was very dry, so, would it be a safe bet that i need to replace the thermal past, or, is the fan for the CPU not a good fan in general. On a side note, I did stress tests with Prime 95 and running ARK *the game* Results as as such: Prime 95, 8 agents running, I hit 75-85 C on the CPU with all fans running ARK on high, the CPU hits a 70C with all fans running, 80C with the intake fans on the front off.
