EPOX 8RDA+ and XP1800+ temp question

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Hugh Sutherland, Nov 8, 2004.

  1. I have the abonve board and chip and my cpu temp is usually 49 degree
    celcius and sometimes goes up to 50 or 51. I am using the stock fan. Is
    this a normal temp?

    Up to 60 C is safe for that CPU, if that's too hot for you, consider an
    aftermarket cooling solution. Thermaltake makes some nice ones.

  4. THE FAN on the CPU blows cool air onto the block which is normal. How
    should my other fans be blowing air? My side panel fan was blowing air out,
    but I turned it around to suck cool air in and blow on M/B and CPU.
    Is ths ok to have it suck air in or blow out for this side panel fan.
    Also I am planning to get a fan for the back of the case and fit it below
    the P/S. Should it blow out or suck air in?

    Same question for fan in front of case?
