My specs:
-CPU: AMD Phenom II X3 720 (4pin stock fan)
-MB: ASRock 790GMH/128 uATX (790GX/750SB)
-GPU: ATI Sapphire Radeon 4550 (passive cooling)
-RAM: 4GB RAM Corsair DDR2 800MHz CL5, with passive cooling.
-CASE:  Thermaltake Lanbox Lite box with one 80mm FAN in front and two 50mm in the back.
-PSU: 400w Seasonic ET 80+

A) My problem is, that while Im surfing the net, hear music (nothing demanding), the CPU shows 51-57C. This temp shows up in BIOS (latest 1.20) and a ASRockOC application. When I run the Speedfan 4.38, it shows me about 10C degrees less = 40-45C. And finaly when I run the AMD OverRide tool, than I see there about 31-38C. How is that possible?

B) I think that also 40C in almost Idle condition are to much. The target CPU temp is set to 62C. And the level of CPU Fan speed is altered by me depending of what Im doing. Cool and Quiet is ON as well.

Please, write me any possible reason or explanation so I can sleep well Smiley

I am not familiar with the tools you used there but have you checked their release notes etc. concerning where they get their estimates from?
