Computer is running way too hot?
Topic: Computer case side fan
July 19, 2019 / By Ned Question:
My computer has been making my room get upwards of 90 degrees within a few hours. It is a rather high end gaming computer with three monitors, It has a corsair h60 water colling for the cpu but the graphics cards are air cooled. Anything I can do to keep the darn thing from getting so hot?
I have an industrial fan, but it kind of ruins it when I am playing games because it is so darn loud!

I have Dual Nvidia GTX560Ti video cards, and an intel 2600k running at 3.4 ghz.
When I had the Corsair h60 mine ran very warm as well. I switched to the H100 and it seem to cool much more efficiently. Honestly my case barely get's warm now.
I have a rather large Corsair case with a very large low RPM front and side fans. It runs almost silent. When I am running BF3 or Crysis 2 @ maximum resolution I hear the H100 rans rev up a bit, but it still maintains it's cool and is very quiet. I have no additional cooling.
Maybe larger case and next step up in processor cooling would help.

You might just be in a slump. It happens, and usually you recover from it. My friend in high school was fast her freshman year (she could run a sub-6 minute mile), then her sophomore year she had a hard time breaking 6 minutes in the mile. Fast forward to this year, she went to state in cross country and ran a sub-6 mile in an intrasquad meet (first meet of the track season, and she was just racing her teammates). I don't know what her training was like, but people do get in slumps and then they recover from then. So just stay in shape, don't injure yourself, and make sure you're not anemic or anything. You'll want to see a doctor to make sure you're not anemic and make sure everything is okay. But odds are you'll spring back. But don't injure yourself! Like wang said, take it easy. Don't do anything crazy to try and get back to where you were. Ten to one you'll bounce back just fine. Just train like your coach tells you to.
60 ish degrees for laptop's and macs is a good temperature. Laptops most commonly run just a little hotter than pcs, however thats adequate. This is not overheating. The trustworthy temperature is around 75C, so if its above that you simply will have to worry. Some folks overclock, and higher temps, like over 75C many times leas to falilures, when over a protracted period. Do not fear its high-quality

Clean the cooling fan blades (get yer fingers dirty).
Otherwise known as 'Elbow Grease'.
(I have cleaned MANY fans with a dull tool, then with a Qtip and alcohol).

90. cel or 90 far. ?, 90 far. isn't that hot for gaming, more airflow would help,but if your doing alot of gaming, i'd check thermal paste, and re-paste it

You are running into two principles of thermodynamics...to make this short, the only way to keep the engine from overheating is to lower the air temperature going over the radiator fins(we can't control the weather yet), or to give the coolant more "time" to transfer its heat. That is the why the thermostat is essential, it restricts the coolant flow, allowing the coolant in the radiator more time to give up its heat. Right now you have constant flow, so the coolant just gets hotter and hotter when the ambient temp is up there. When the ambient temperature is lower (at night/cloudy day) the air is cooler, so the same air flow will remove more heat faster...
The other thing is the AC...with it running, that "condenser" in front of the radiator gets hot. That increases the amount of heat that needs to go away, and the reason the electric fan runs constantly...to increase the air flow across the radiator fins AND the condenser fins...both cases make it necessary to have a thermostat in the car...
