    I just bought https://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=FS-069-OE. Recieved it today!
    My CPU temperatures are 32 46 42.
    46-47 gives me an above normal temperature!
    my core is 36.
    i expected it to be alot lot lot cooler than this, the reason i got new pc was because of recent cooling problems.

    WHy is this, is there anything i need to do to the water cooling?? Set it different or anything like that.

    Would appreciate a reply asap thanks :)

    What software are you using to monitor temps and is the 46-47c full load.

    Download HW monitor to compare temps and Prime 95 to give the cpu full load.

    At the moment I would not say those temps are to high, double check the setting's on the cooler and check the fan speed, might be set for quiet mode.

    I would ignor Speedfan symbols.

    Oh ok sorry for all the posts but this is the info i have with cpuid

    it says temperatures:
    1 - 33C
    2 - 48 C
    3 - 43 C

    then under my cpu temps:
    core0 38
    core1 38
    core 2 38
    goes to 4 while on cs.

    So the core temperature in speed fan is my cpu? Then what are the other 3 temperatures obviously nothing to do with cpu lol.
    I dont mind if my cpu stays around 37-40C, i expect that with a Over clocked CPU.

    I didnt know core temp stood for all 3 cores in the cpu.

    But why did my previous pc used to turn off when one of the other temps reached a temp with a flame next to it :(

    I run Prime max stress test - Can't remeber the right wording :o

    I don't have any hand's on expirence with the Coolit system, just checked the website and the unit does have different modes, I will have another look and see if they do a Instaruction manual for you to download.

    What was the temperature on Speedfan when the flame apperared in Speedfan and what cpu were you using.

    The AMD chip has a max temp of 73c looking on the AMD website.

    The other temps may be board temps ect and possibly GPU temp.

    What software was he using to monitor temps, Real Temp and Core Temp are good and has he tested the cpu at full load with Prime.

    What HSF is he using, the Coolit system is only as good as a average / good air cooler, do you know the actual model number of the cpu, also some Intel cpu's had stuck / faulty sensors.

    Thats correct.

    Link to the manual - Clicky, you might be able to a little cooler if your setting is on quiet, but at 50c I would not worry :)
