JGJTan Icon : (05 July 2018 - 10:07 AM) So this has been a while! It's @jgjtan and @leftyy here having a nostalgia trip. We hope you all have been having a great time so far! Miss you, be back in another 5-10 years. (Or find me on social media -- it's not that hard.)

Res Icon : (06 October 2017 - 03:11 AM) As well as things can be, good to hear from you all :D!!! Much love all around.
X Zolon Icon : (05 October 2017 - 05:02 AM) Strange. I was thinking about it around the same time. Just didn't come back until now. Hope everyone is well.

Rylkan Icon : (09 July 2017 - 04:07 PM) Not bad. Just finishing up grad school. Which means I am looking for distractions from writing. :p
Phieta Icon : (09 July 2017 - 05:06 AM) Still flying, so to speak. How goes with you?
Rylkan Icon : (09 July 2017 - 02:42 AM) I am even more amazed someone replied to this in less than a few month timescale. Hi! How goes?
Phieta Icon : (08 July 2017 - 09:43 PM) He does log into GW every month or so to retain leadership, so that's something
Phieta Icon : (08 July 2017 - 09:42 PM) There are several of us! Several!
Rylkan Icon : (08 July 2017 - 06:33 PM) I was actually hoping to get in touch with Cspace since its been forever. But it looks like our old leader is lost to the void.
Rylkan Icon : (08 July 2017 - 06:29 PM) In a moment of pure nostalgia, I remembered this site. Seeing any shouts from this year is insane.

So I just replaced my stock CPU fan/heatsink with new setup. Which is Arctic Cooler 64.

My core CPU temp is now idling at a steady 41 Celsius, but my computer is tending to freeze up a tad bit, and is reacting somewhat slowly. My previous fan had melted (Literally melted. Bearing went out and was unfriendly), but slow reaction is solved by closing a few processes. Nothing I can't handle.

So now that I'm idling at 41C, what is a mark temperature I should look out for, stay away from reaching? My HDTune program that measures temperature automatically sets 51C to critical temperature, or 135. Are those still safe temps to run at? I do everything I can to keep it cool, because my last computer literally fried because of a bad CPU fan and lack of monitoring the temperature.

Idling temp is 41C/105F. Is is safe to run things until I hit near 49C/120F?

Somewhat related, I'm considering overclocking everything, for the simple fact to say I did and reap the benefits of it. Does anyone recommend this? I'm content as I am right now, but I'm greedy and I want a bit more. Should I do it? The only problem is, I have never done it before/am completely ignorant to many facets of what it could do.

Opinions and knowledge are appreciated. Thanks. :o

It depends on the parts you have. My PC stays at around 60c and hits 70c at times.
This isn't great for the life of the thing, but I don't plan on keeping it around for 10 years.

Chances are you're alright.

41c is overall a quite safe reading no matter what your cpu is.

But for a more precise temp you would need to know what CPU you've got.

Rs stats:

Att: 90/90
Str: 90/90
Def: 99/99
Hp: 93/93
Pray: 70/70
Sum: 50/50
Combat: 121 p2p 115 f2p

Being an avid overclocker I suggest you remove the cooler buy some AS5 and apply a small layer upon the CPU. Generally when you are overclocking the danger zone is 60C. CPUS need to try and stay under 55C.
