    I was wondering if any of you people have or have used one of these? My question is about the temp readings. I've been using this thing for a while now & I really like it, but I'm a bit concerned about a couple temps.

    Currently they are as follows:
    CPU ~ 36c
    Motherboard ~ 32c
    GPU ~ 39c
    Video Memory ~ 31c
    HDD ~ 28c
    System Memory ~ 42c seems a bit high????
    PSU ~ 44c also a bit high???
    Ambient ~ 32c

    System specs:
    Gigabyte GA-7VAXP
    Athlon XP2400+ - Speeze all copper heatsink modified w\an 80mm Speeze fan on top.
    Corsair 1024MB PC2700 DDR 333MHz ~ I've taken out the TwinMOS
    ASUS V9280 Geforce4 Ti4200 128MB
    120gig IBM Deskstar ~ mounted in the Digital Doc 5
    LG 16x DRD-8160B DVD
    LG GCE 8240b 24x10x40 CD-RW
    Farralon NIC - Cable Internet
    AC97 Avance Logic ALC650
    Polk-Audio AMR150 speakers
    NEC AccuSync AS70 17"
    Windoze XP Pro
    All inside a highly ( and I do mean highly ) modified Gateway case w\ 1x120mm TT in the front, 1x92mm Zalman in the top & 1x80mm Speeze in the back. Vantec round cables all around & a Channel Well 425watt PSU.

    Temps seem fine to me except those two. Any ideas on what they should be? I guess that's my question. I've checked the leads to make sure they hadn't moved or whathaveya.

    Well DDR does run a bit hotter than SDRAM,that's why they make cooling plates for it.Does your's have any of those?
    You are also running quite a bit of it,what 2 @ 512? 4 @ 256?
    That much could be causing a higher reading than others might see.
    And the PSU is working pretty hard here and it is a pretty good size one,so it will have a higher ambiant temp naturally.
