    My current AMD 64 rig, thats in my sig is running at about 49-51C Idle, now the room its in is very hot at times, but normally not above 75 Faranheit. When i clean the heatsink out it gets cooler, but i haven't had time to do that recently.

    Its an AMD 64 3400 @ 2.4ghz (stock) Socket 754.

    Now i ask you guys is 49-51C too hot for idle? Sometimes it gets up to 65C sometimes during gaming.

    Most CPU’s under idle conditions should not be running above 50C (122F). A good temperature to aim for is 40C (104F).

    Well here some tips take off the side panel and turn off computer for 30 mins I meran turn off pc from power supply switch

    and buy some dust of for better air flow but 49-51 is okay

    Yea i figured the dust would be a problem, i'm going to get some duster, and clean out most of it.

    a 3rd party heat sink/fan will help lower temps, too. especially if you're oc'ing. artic silver 5 will bring them down even further.

    Umm, that's not a bad temp considering the CPU you have. I belive mine was aroudn those tmeps when it was stock. I have since lowered the voltage, but still at default speeds, and have gotten water cooling. I am usually in the mid 30s. The best way to cool your CPU is to lower the voltage. Mine was like 1.5-1.55 at stock and I can lower it to 1.35-1.375 and still be able to do anything. That lowered my temps nearly 10C, plus it was FREE.

    EDIT: Don't use my voltages as a guide, though, as we have different CPUs.

    Wow your so right, i hadn't even thought about lowering the voltages, i mean i won't use yours EXACTLY but probably close, seeing as how we have the same core. But i mean during the winter time i was idleing at around 39-42C which was awesome, now in the summer is like 49C, i'll try lowering my voltages, and keeping the Air Conditioning on really high, but its ALWAYS HOT upstairs where the computer is, every other room besides the FROG is cool, the downstairs feels so good compared to the PC room.

    check for dust, i didnt clean mine out for ages, cleaned it out, and my cpu dropped 15-20c, because i had that much **** in my HSF and heatsink

    Mine idles at 38c (room temp 26c) boxed cooler. During the winter time it was idleing 28c-34c.

    i have exact same cpu temps and room temp as you, my cou is a winchester 3000+ with boxed cooler.

    Yea i've seen mine that low during the winter when it wasn't 75-80C in this f*cking room. Plus it was so clogged with dust, soon as i cleaned it, it went from 49C idle to 44C, still would like it cooler, thinking about moving it to a different room, this room just isnt getting the proper air conditioning for some reason.
