I recently put together two systems using
2x Tyan K8WE (S2895) (BIOS 10/13/05 2895_102)
4x Opteron 275

The systems are identical except the cases
1x Supermicro CSE-743S1-650B
1x Supermicro SC942S-600B
Ambient Temp is about 18C

The strange thing is that one system, the CPU’s idle around 29-31C, while the other system, they idle around 46-48C and about 58C under load.

Any ideas?

with the case open that system is still 46C idle,
other system has case closed and CPUs reporting much cooler like 30C

is this something to worry about?
I mean I might replace the mobo cause this machine needs to be stable;
I didn't get a triple redundant PSU for casual computing :p

Is it not stable? Because you never said anything about it not being stable.

Close up the case so it can perform as it was designed. Also make sure the airflow is enough.

it seems stable, I ran a script to compile linux kernel over and over for several hours.

the other machine seems to be about as hot now, im gonna get artic silver and better heatsinks maybe
