« on: September 15, 2011, 12:54:32 am »
hello i have purchased a pc recently with m68mt-s2p am3+ motherboard with phenim x2 555 black edition processor ,now the problem is my room is not cool i.e, the temp inside my room is always above 30 degrees ,to check the temp of my processor i have downloaded some software and its showing me temp of 29 degree when i start and after using it for 2 hr it changing to 32 and so on so i could not use my pc for more than 4 hr ,i am shutting it down for an hr and then starting it
and the temp of hdd after using it for an 1hr is showing at 44 degrees
i dont have any coolers in if but an exhaust fan to processor and one at the back side of the cabin
Does this have any effect on performance and product life..... :(
 anybody plese suggest me a cooler.

Hi and welcome.

This time of the year I am hardly surprised considering the climate. The 44 degrees temperature  that you refer to is that the core temp or the motherboard temp or what ?

If it is the core temp then not a problem at all. If fact even if it is the motherboard temp it is ok.

Only the speed of the data transfer but at that temperature it isn't too bad to be honest. I would try to stop it getting any hotter though. Maybe add another fan to blow directly onto the drives.

Just use the normal plastic fan. Nothing special it has only got to kep the air circulating past the device. It doesn't even matter what size it is really whatever you can get to fit best will do.
