I recently build a pc and I am concerned with the temps. First off here are the specs;
Antec earthwatts 500w power supply
Ati Radeon HD 4850
Quad core q8200
Scythe mini ninja heat sink (artic silver 5 paste)
I have a fan in the front of the case, one in the back, the one on the heat sink, and I tried a side/top fan but it didnt help.
My temperature readings using CoreTemp are currently (just firefox open) 50,44,45,49. I purchased the mini ninja hoping to drop the temps but they are almost identical to when I was using a standard intel fan.
It seems like anything I try has practially no effect on the temperatures so I am looking for suggestions. I want to drop the temps to the 30’s if possible because then I wanted to do some overclocking.
I have attached a picture to help get a better idea, I know it’s a mess but I’m worried about the temps right now.
Please help! Thanks
