    which temp should I believe?

    So I built myself a new rig and installed the asus AI2 suit that has all the temperature statuses and at idol the CPU runs about 30 Degrees Celsius.

    Now i just installed coretemp RC1 RC4 and its saying my CPU temp at idol is 15-20 (jumps up and down alot degrees Celsius.

    Congrats on the new build

    I've gotten conflicting info like that before also.
    Not sure why but pretty common to get different temperatures from different sources.
    Many say trust the BIOS more than anything else.

    A third opinion helps me: http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php

    30 seems right...15-20 is way low. I've been out of the 'watching temps' game for a while now but from what I remember 30 sounds attainable.

    And WOW, very nice system...Congrats. I have been contemplating a new system but just really don't want to reinstall everything and get it setup.

    Thanks!

    Setup wasn't too bad. Nice thing about these new mombo's is that you can update the BIOS now with a USB key and all you need is motherboard connected to the PSU and press a button on the mombo. Posted on first boot!

    Very nice system, although I would ditch the raid 0, it's just too darn risky.

    If it is not true for you, it isn't true.

    Never had a problem with RAID 0, though I do prefer RAID 5 now.

    might do that later down the road if/when I get more SSD's. Think I want to setup an SLI and get 3 monitors going. We will see.

    10 min is damn good. The true test is doing an image restore.
