As the title suggests I got a new ATI 800XL 256 AGP and a new Antech 430 watt PS and now my CPU is running at nearly 70*C while running graphic intensive applications. I could run a report through Everest and post it if anyone is interested. It dosnet seem to be causing an issues with the system, when I play.

I touched the side of the case and for some reason it was warm, took the side off and and didnt feel a differance in the temp untill I got my hand near the Vid Card. Wow, that baby was warm. The metal bays that hold my drives in place were also pretty warm to the touch. What could be doing this?

Suggestions or anything else that would help point me in the right direction as to how to handle this. As of right now the side of my case is off and all is well, also nothing is warm to the touch when I'm playing anything. But it seems that as soon as I place the lid back on things start to warm up pretty quick. *New is .... 5? days old for both the PS and Video Card*

Dont have either the old PS or the Video card at my desposable to *swap and play*

Thanks in Advance,
Narynan

Hi,

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but those temps are way too hot. Yes, the CPU and card can probably handle those according to the manufacturer's specs. However, heat kills and although you didn't state what case or CPU you have I will make a generalization statement. I would be very concerned about ANY temp readings that ever go over 62C even under stress testing. If you tell us what CPU, motherboard, and case, we might be able to even be more specific about what temps are near to normal for that setup. Why not tell us about how you put it together, like ARtic Silver or the factory heatsink pad? What kind of case cooling do you have? How many fans, pointed which direction? Is the CPU fan pointing down as it should or blowing up? Is the fan on the video card working properly? Just give us some of that detail and we will better be able to take a look at all those issues and how they effect the heat intensity in the case.
