Phenom II X4 810 and fan question
I seem to be having a problem with my processor. It's idling at 62C and I know that is too hot. I've checked the heatsink/fan and it seems to be mounted correctly. Are AMD's supposed to run this hot? I do not know because this is my first AMD. I think the problem might also be that only 2 out of 3 fans in my case are working, so the airflow might not be the best. Which leads me to my next question:
I have a gigabyte MA790X-UD4P, and there seems to be only w cpu_fan power sockets. THere is something called power fan but I'm guessing thats for the PSU? Is there anyway to make three fans work even if there's only 2 power slots.. maybe a splitter or something? Thanks for the help.

If the fan plugs fit properly to the board, then you can use them. That's probably just a fan header that's got RPM controls in the bios.
And your chip is running pretty warm. Generally you never want anything over 70°c. What cooler are you using? Is the paste spread properly? Did you remove the heatsink and replace it without reapplying the paste? If so, that's your problem.
But I would get some new paste, and reseat your heatsink again, see if that helps.
