CPU Temps - Should I be Worried?

    I am running a opty 170 with a mild OC to 2.5ghz on an asus A8N-SLI premium, OCZ gold EL XTC 2gb ram. I'm running 1.375v through the mobo, so there shouldn't be an excess amount of heat.

    Since fitting my new Zalman VF-900 cooler to my GPU, I noticed that the CPU temps seem a little high imo.

    I'm using an Arctic Freezer 64 on the opty, and when running 2 instances of prime 95, I see max temperatures between 47-49C

    Is this temperature normal, or should I reinstall the Arctic IHS? When I increased the OC to 2555mhz, the temperatures hit 52C, which seems a large amount considering the tiny extra OC.

    Any help would be appreciated :)

    Look ok to me for load temps.

    You could always try re-fitting the cooler to make sure its on properly.

    Those are normal temps for that oc, although it depends a lot on case cooling and room temp.

    Btw an IHS is an Internal Heat Spreader, the Arctic freezer is an HSF, HeatSink Fan. ;)

    I hope its folding for the team. See sig. :)
