Question re: system temperatures

Question: Question re: system temperatures

I've done no overclocking, no advanced work whatsoever. Every time I try to google my issue, all of the solutions seem to be based around the person with the issue overclocking their system thus causing high tempuratures. This is not that issue.

On to the actual problem, my motherboard reports temperatures of 69c when running any program that takes any worthwhile amount of system resources (and some that don't), in particular, most games. CPU and GPU tempuratures seem far lower, around 30-40c. Assuming the sensor isn't to blame (and it isn't, if the feel of the case is any indication), are there any reliable ways to lower MB tempurature with simple BIOS and power settings?

Running an old F1a55-M (FM1) on Win 7 Home Premium, SP1.

EDIT: The motherboard idles at 47, which also seems high. I've changed locations for better airflow several times and wonder if I just flat-out need a larger case.

whats a safe CPU temperature... ive been oc-ing it for a little while and monitoring it... im guessing that 30-40 degrees under load is not too bad?... just dont wanna melt it lol.. if i peak at 39 degrees (at 100%) (this is celcius btw) would it be safe to push it a bit further?

Hello,

I currently own a MSI GS60 Notebook with an i7 Processor and GTX 860M Graphics Card. I'm not really tech savy but wanted to get some clarity on what are safe temperatures for my laptop while gaming.

A bit of information, I only play World of Warcraft, and I play it pretty heavily on the weekends I can play for about 6-8 hours a day and sometimes play upwards of 4 hours without a session. I've been keeping track of my laptops temperatures, and they seem to sit at around 65-78 c.

My question is, is this a safe and acceptable temperature for my laptop? I use the balanced power scheme and also have it hooked up to a Zalman notebook cooler, I also try not to have too many application open when I play wow and keep to the necessary application as well as WoW and Ventrillo.

Thanks.

I would say 78c is at a point where you need to start cooling it down, if it is hot where you are then that could play a part in it, but going over 80 is getting bad... not sure what others think..

Hi everybody.I know every laptop model has different "normal" temperature stats, so I decided to write here, and to ask owners of Lenovo Y570.Recently I came to doubt if my temperatures are OK. Here is what I have:My regular temp is the one on the left (its right now till writing that post). Most of the time, during gameplay (Skyrim for example) I got the Max temp values.Do you think those values are normal and is there something I can do about them (aside form stop using the laptop forever  )?Thanks.

Answer:Question about temperatures of Y570 ?

Completely not normal. Your CPU is on the verge of thermal throttling since the maximum temperature before the CPU starts to throttle is at 100 celsius. Clean your heatsink vents and the vents below the laptop and get a laptop cooler to lower your temps. I consider 95 degrees the max while you're gaming. My power hungry i7 is always below 93 degrees when gaming.

Answer:Speedfan Temperatures Question

Temp 1/2/3/4 are part of your mother boards temp.

Your Video cards temp says it is at 59c.

It seems you have two cores so a dual core cpu that runs about 45c.

Hello. I have a little question about my temp readings from speedfan

As you may see, i have a temp 1,2 and 3. after some research i have found that temp1 is CPU, temp2 is motherboard and 3 is probably not used, although it displays a rather curious value

I now wonder what the core temp is? isn't that a cpu temp? ind if so which should i trust? because temp 1 and core shows completely different values!

/Johan

PS: I have a ASUS M3A78 Board
 

Answer:Solved: Question about Speedfan and temperatures

OK

Temp 1 (CPU Temp) is detected by a small temperature sensor just underneath the metal casting around the CPU.

Core Temp is detected by a small temperature sensor inside the CPU die itself. These are often a lot more unreliable in cases that I have seen.

Hi there, does anyone know what are "normal" or dangerously high temperatures for system & CPUs as revealed in BIOS. Mine are 32 & 72 deg respectively and I fear this is higher than it should be (the fan has started lately whirring away with more noise than normal) Ive had the tower open and cleaned it of dust. At what temperature might the system pack up? Is there anything else I can do, if indeed 72 deg is too high to lower this?

Answer:System & CPU Temperatures

I would be getting concerned at 72 degC on the CPU - assuming it is an athlon they are usually rated for 85 or 90 degC.The other concern is that if this is what it is in the bios, this is when there is no load on the cpu, when the cpu gets loaded (playing games etc) this temp will increase.Sure we helped you yesterday increase the cpu speed? off to check the other thread - will be back.

My system is based around an AMD Athlon XP 2000 chip on an Elite (ECS) K7VMM+ motherboard and I've just installed Motherboard Monitor 5 to keep an eye on component temperatures. The program is great however I have no frame of reference as to what the typical or safe temperatures are for the CPU, Case, etc. Anyone out there know where I can find a resource for these types of figures?

Answer:System Temperatures

Cooler is better, but recently installed a new motherboard etc. with AMD 2600 and now run the machine with the side off to keep the temperature down to a CPU 46C and case 28C (currently). Even with three fans and the case on the temperatures went up to 62C and 35C so I decided if it was too hot to touch it wsa too hot to use and rather than shell out on a new case and more fans....Looking at other postings when I started worrying about this I couldn't find anything definitive, except assertions that AMD can run up to 75C and discussions on heat paste to keep the cooling fan on the CPU conducting the heat away.

Under load (or major game playing) the system will shutdown (the threshold is set at 80 degrees!!!).Major worries... so I installed a thermstat and burried it right in the middle of the heatsink just above the CPU. This temperature reads 35 idle, rising to mid forties under load.Which temperature is true?

Answer:System temperatures

The max case temp for that is 70c so i would be carefull if i was you.Try reseating the heatsink and if that doesnt work try the supplied heatsink to see what happens then. The Zalman isnt the most effective HSF on the market and 82w is a lot of heat to get rid off and doing it quietly isnt as easy as you would think.

Hi guys,

I just recently built a new computer with a Quad Core CPU (Intel Quad Core Q6600), 3 GB RAM and the ASUS P5N32-E motherboard.

Because the DX10 cards are so expensive right now I decided to wait off getting a new graphics card for a while and use my old ATI Radeon X850XT PE from my old computer.

It's been running fine for about two weeks now. But recently I've been crashing a lot while playing games (some of which are pretty old and shouldn't be that hard to run).

I decided to check out what temperatures its running at so I downloaded ATITools and Speed Fan.

While running KoTOR my GPU core temperature was sitting around 79-82 degrees celcius. After 20-30 min my computer crashed. The CPU temperature was around 45-50 degrees celcius.

I tried Counter Strike: Source as well and the temperatures were sitting around 85-89 degrees celcius on the GPU and 47-50 on the CPU.

I've tried taking the GFX card out of the case and cleaning any dust out of the fan and heatsink. I couldn't figure out how to unscrew the the plastic casing accross the top of the fan and heatsink, so instead I just sucked as much dust out as I could with a vacuum clearner. There's still some dust built up around the fan blades and in between the vertical elements of the heatsink. I think that I could probably do a better job clearing out the dust later with an air gun.

In the meantime I just wanted to know whether these temperatures were something to worry about or a... Read more

Answer:Solved: Question about normal GPU/CPU temperatures and overheating.

Hey guys, bit of an update for you:

I was messing around in ATITools and I discovered the Fan Controls section. I set it to override the driver fan control and aim to keep the temperature at about 70 degrees celcius. I think booted up HL2 with max settings.

Now, I know that my gfx card can handle HL2 with everything turned up and on high resolution because I played the game from start to finish on my old computer with no problems and no overheatings.

Keeping an eye on both the fan speed and the GPU temperature I played the game. It maintained a 70 degree temperature easily, without using the full 100% fan speed. In fact in most situations the fan speed was about 80-90%. The highest I see it climb to was 98% during the whole time.

It crashed again, but only when I started changing the sound options around.

This got me thinking about all of the crashes I've had. The one consistent factor was sound irregularities. In KoTOR I couldn't run the game with sound working properly unless I forced it to run through software. On any other mode there was really weird distortions.

Thinking that it might be the sound card I openned up the case took it out. I cleaned away a lot of dust from the back of the board and also moved it up to a different PCI slot. I haven't installed the drivers yet; however, it seems to working fine.

I'm going to test it now to see if it crashes anymore.

Wish me luck

Hi everyone

I have just replaced my deceased motherboard with an Intel D101GGC. I also replaced the culprit for the board's demise, my cheap and nasty generic power supply, with a Thermaltake W0084. My CPU is a P4 630 (3.0Ghz).

Once both were installed, I measured the system temperatures and fan speeds as follows:

In BIOS: CPU Temp 47C
CPU Fan 980 RPM, front fan 1170 RPM, rear fan 980 RPM

Using Everest, at idle: Motherboard temp 42C, CPU temp 41C, Aux temp 47C
CPU fan 990 RPM, system fan 1170 RPM, chassis fan 990 RPM

Using Everest, peak CPU load: Motherboard temp 44C, CPU temp 42C, Aux temp 61C
CPU Fan 1320 RPM, system fan 1660 RPM, chassis fan 1400 RPM

Room temperature is about 20C.

I don't know what the "Aux" sensor is, and was unable to work it out from Intel's documentation, but it seems to be behaving more like I would expect the CPU to under load. Can anyone tell me what it is? Could it in fact be, as I strongly suspect, the CPU temperature? Obviously, if it is, it is getting unacceptably hot.

I tried cleaning off and replacing the Arctic Silver compound, and securely reseating the fan/heatsink assembly, but it made no difference.

Also, in a slightly foolhardy move, I turned the heater up to full power to simulate a hot summer day. Everest reported that the "Aux" temperature was now peaking at 68C, with a CPU fan speed of 2020 RPM. Intriguingly, however, according to Panopsys' ThrottleWatch, even at this temperature TM1...

Answer:Weird system temperatures

At a guess, i'd say the "aux" in your case is the onboard graphics chip that will generally run hotter than the CPU.
Yours is passively cooled so i'd expect it to get hotter than 70 degrees with a lot of display activity.
Think yourself semi-lucky though.... i've seen some boards (with integrated video) this year without even a heatsink on the GPU, never mind a fan - god forbid.

You should have some kind of hardware monitoring menu in the BIOS where you can cross reference the temperatures, also try any hardware monitoring software that might have come with your motherboard (on the CD).
Unfortunately, sensor reading programs like everest aren't very dependable or specific about what they're monitoring (everest gives consistently low temperature readings on the machine i'm using right now for example).

Hi all,
What programs are nessecary to check the CPU and system temperatures? I've heard in the BIOS at least one of them can be checked. Also, is there around a certain temperature they should be at?

Thanks, Jason

Answer:[SOLVED] Check System and CPU Temperatures

Hi Jason !

Most motherboards have sensors that will monitor the cpu and system temps more or less acurately. Depending on the brand and model of your computer those readings are often available in the BIOS under "hardware monitor" or "pc health status".

Another possibility is to use speedfan or some other temp monitoring software but keep in mind that if it doesn't recognize your sensors properly you'll get misreadings. Better to check the temps in the BIOS when possible.

The system temp is the temp inside the computer case, you'll want that temp to be close to the room temperature, little higher is ok, 10?C higher means overheating or very bad airflow inside the case. The CPU temp will vary with the CPU model. With a desktop most of the time you want the CPU temp to stay under 35-40?C when idle and under 55?C when under load. Refer to a cpu temp chart like this one : http://users.erols.com/chare/elec.htm. You'll see that mobile CPU's can reach much higher temps than regular ones. Keep in mind that when the CPU reaches a given temperature (defined by the manufacturer), the system will begin to throttle : idle times will be inserted between instructions to lower the load on the CPU and prevent it from burning. This is what causes lag and sluggishness in apps. Read this old thread for more informations : http://www.techsupportforum.com/f15/...ps-163515.html

You also need to take the GPU (video processor) temp into account, this one won't show in ... Read more

Hey guys,

Hopefully this thread is in the right place.

I own an Acer Predator gaming PC, and specifically, it has an American Megatrends UEFI BIOS which is presumably modded my Acer.

In the advanced settings, both ''System Shutdown Temp'' and ''CPU Shutdown Temp'' are off by default.

So as the overly cautious-verging-on-paranoid when it comes to melting circuit boards, I turned both on> Strangely it didn't let me customise the temps for system shut down (I know my Haswell chip for instance has safe operating temps well above 85c)

So, after switching both on, I ran a Prime95 torture test - I was monitoring my temps, and after about 3 or 4 minutes my CPU & Motherboard temps hit 72c. My system then shutdown. I turned off those BIOS settings as it seemed pointless for a system to shutdown at 72c. Am I wrong here? Do you guys reckon that because I can't specify the values for shutdown, it just goes with the lowest common denominator?

My last question is; if I leave these BIOS Settings off, will my Haswell chip/system shut itself down if the temps get too high anyway? Cheers!

Answer:Generic system shutdown temperatures seem irrelevant?

Prime95 will test your RAM, CPU and parts of the MB which interface with the CPU and RAM for stability, it does not monitor your temp. If the PC shutdowns then that means your PC is unstable. Of course, the temp will rise when you do a torture test but it is not the cause for the PC to shutdown.

I have a ThinkPad T61 going on five years old.  Over the last several months it seemed like it might be overheating.  Several times it shut down during heavy activity and/or when the afternoon sun hit the unit in its docking station.  I figured this was due to the move to the more graphics-intensive Windows 7 OS from the original Windows XP.  I did make sure to vacuum out the passages for cooling air. I recently downloaded a free (!) utility called Real Temp from www.techpowerup.com/realtemp.  This showed both cores running at a temperature in the high 80's/low 90's (degrees Centigrade). The cooling fan then intermittently began making sounds that indicated a failing bearing.  I have onsite service so I had Lenovo/IBM come out and replace the fan.  (The fan stopped making noise as soon as I placed the service call, of course.) I then re-ran Real Temp.  The temperatures in both cores were now in the high 40's/low 50's (degrees Centigrade)!!! The fan had apparently been gradually failing for quite some time, with a reduced flow of cooling air, but the problem only became readily apparent when the bearings started making noise.  The air passages were clear, so the fan had to have been running more slowly that it should have been. In the time-honored IT tradition of reading the directions only after solving the problem, I looked at some of the (excellent) documentation on the TechPowerUp site for Real Temp...

Answer:Check CPU Temperatures / Replace Fan / Speed Up System

Nice posting
 
Additional you can do the steps described below before you buy a new fan.:
 
In most cases dust is blocking the ribs inside the heat sink.
Very often it will help do do the following steps:

Turn off computer
remove battery and power-supply
remove keyboard (see Hardware Maintenance Manual) - if your notebook is in warranty have a look into the parts list, whether the keyboard is a CRU!!!
block the fan propeller with a match or toothpick (do not press onto the propeller hub - you may damage the bearing) - if you do not block the propeller, the fan will work as a dynamo and may damage the board!!
blow with compressed air spray from outside through the ribs into the heatsink
check the space between the propeller and remove fluffs with a pinzette, if there are any
clean carefully the upper side with a vacuum cleaner on lowest power from the blown dust while blocking the fan propeller
attach, keyboard, battery and  test the temperature again

After cleaning the heat sink the temperature will be very lower than before.

I am extremely pleased with the performance of my W510. However, after some kind of electrical problem fried my system board, it was replaced (under Thinkpad Protection) by an on-site repair technician. Now I'm getting frequent shutdowns when the CPU reaches 97C. I either need to fix this or get a new computer (likely a desktop, as I'm sure this heating issue is worse on other i7-QM machines). Questions:What are the normal operating temperatures when running the CPU at a full 80-100% load? Secondly, is my W510 designed to be able to run at full speed when the fan is running on maximum (~4100RPM) and is not blockeed? Am I simply asking too much of this machine?? Before replacement, I did not have a single instance of overheating, despite using graphics and computation-intensive software. Infrequent temperature checks suggested that 70C was a normal CPU temperature while crunching numbers. I don't believe I ever purposefully ran the CPU at a full load, other than the Windows experience index, and some infrequent chemistry visualization in my primary operating system, Open SuSE. After the system board was replaced, I have been able to easily always reproduce the 97C CPU temperature with the computer lying flat on a hard surface, in a cold room (62 Fahrenheit) while running different Mathematica calculations which utilize 6 or 8 of the 8 threads (not every time, but many times a day when I'm crunching numbers). This has also happened once while the search-indexing ... Read more

Answer:Overheating after new system board. W510 Normal Temperatures?

Update: I started poking around the inside of the machine, since I was nearly certain the overheating began after the on-site technician replaced my system board. I remove the keyboard, and noticed that the two visible screws which hold the copper heat conductor in place above the CPU weren't really tightened at all ... they were just sitting there. I tightened them up, reassembled the computer, and starting running the CPU at 90-100% (mathematica calculations). I can't get the temperature higher than 83C. Problem solved. Can anybody recommend an easy benchmarking package for linux? I wan't to be sure I've solved this problem. Thank you much.

Hello, recently my two month old X201s started to get rather hot (50-65 Celsius) (122-149 Fahrenheit) when I am using minimal system resources and putting little of the CPU to use. So I purchased a cooling pad, which only occasionally works to keep the temperature down.I could understand this happening if I were running something resource intensive such as a game as I am quite sure this should not be happening whilst running a word processor.and before you suggest looking for blockages to the vents and exhaust I already have and they are all unobstructed.the temperatures were checked using the program speed fan I would appreciate some insight into this matter Thank you 

Answer:X201s started reaching high temperatures (122-149 Fahrenheit) when using minimal system resources

since you got warranty remaining just send it in for repair, there is probably a need for some new thermal paste or that the heatsink heat pipe is leaking.

I am trying to do a system recovery back to the original condition and I have taken what I need to save. I have talked to HP tech twice and 1 told me I need to buy a special automated recovery cd from them. The other said not to do that and I need to use the two cds I have (1. operating system cd, 2. Applications and Drivers dvd). Operating system is Windows XP professional on a HP laptop.

I have completed the following steps. Can any one tell me if I am doing the right thing?
1)I put in the operating system cd and shut down the computer.
2) I started it back up useing the cd (by hitting any button when it asks).

Yes, you can delete the partition; then create a new one in the same space and format it and continue the installation.

Hello everyone, I've had my lenovo y50-70 for a few days and i've been using it a lot lately. After some time I noticed that my temperatures increased substantially. What worries me the most is that my idle temps on balanced mode (energy manager) are around 50-60 used to be around 40-46~ like 2 days ago and I literally dont have anything in the background. When I switch to max performance mode my temps don't even increase!! Same with CPU usage - weird. http://imgur.com/F2ZWJct,Ki6xWdt,xbQ13dVThree screenshots in three different modes. When I try playing a game that isn't that demanding but I play it on ultra my temps peak at 70C ~ not more. Thanks for help.

Which Temperature is normal for hard disk?

Is there any good hardware temperature viewing/watching program?

Answer:TemperatureS

I think it all depends on the type of hardware you have.

RAM - not sure

Motherboard - there are so many components on the board, I don't know how you would measure the temp. Where would you measure it? The air around it? The northbridge? Some other component?

CPU - it depends on your CPU. Mine is a Quad core intel and the HIGH is 71.4C but there are two sensors inside it. Here's a great guide on this.
Sticky: Core i7 and Core 2 Temperature Guide

Hard disk - not sure. My "normal" one (not SSD) is 35C(95F) right now and it's not even being used so hotter than that.

Good programs are....Real temp, CPUID H/W monitor, everest, SIW.

Question: Temperatures

Hi all,

Just wondering: what is considered a "high" temperature for a CPU and GPU? I downloaded a program called SpeedFan which tells me the temperature of my processor and GPU. It tells me the temperature of each core and 3 of them are about 28-35 degrees while idle, but core two says -128 degrees. I don't understand why, could that be an error or does it mean something?

Also, is 60 degrees a little hot for my GPU while idling? SpeedFan displays icons next to the temperature: blue arrow means cool, red arrow means heating up, and fire means hot. My GPU displays the fire icon. I think I'm going to have to add in another fan or two.


Thanks,

George.

Answer:Temperatures

Hello,

Those temperatures seem very normal. A high temperature for a CPU is 70C. nVidia GPUs can safely get up to 100C, but I believe in reality, they could go hotter.

60 for your GPU is actually quite cool.

I can't say I understand why one core is reported at -128. Try another program, such as Real Temp - CPU temperature monitoring

I have always used Speedfan, so I can't actually recommend another specific program.

I'm running dual GTX 285's with the fans set at 50%. The ambient temperature inside the case is 77F, and my cards idle around 45-57F. When I play COD4, or another graphic intensive game, my fans increase to 75% and the temps stay around 60-62F. Are these normal/acceptable temperatures or is there something I need to do in order to drop the temps? Thanks in advance.

The system in my signature has both, W7 and W8 installed. The dual boot is managed by the EUFI/BIOS via the "F12" key, instead of using Windows for this purpose. As such, both OSs run on the same hardware; the only exception is the system or "C" drive, each OS has it's own SSD drive.

Despite the same hardware that obviously have the cooling capacity, there's a temperature difference between the two OS. This has been verified by HWMonitor:

It's a sort of mixed bag, in W7 the CPU runs cooler while in W8.1 the GPU runs cooler. The latter one is probably due to utilizing AMD Eyefinity, or offloading the multi-monitor setup to the GPU.

In either case, W8.1 seems more power hungrary than W7. Did others noticed the same?

I dont think this is normal, am i right?

I think this is the sole reason for my constant computer freezes?

Im guessing Im right and I have to get a new CPU fan/heatsink and some top quality thermal paste.

Any suggestions for socket 775? I want the absolute best fan solution available with the best thermal paste known...

Answer:CPU temperatures

What are you using to monitor those temps? Because that is insanely high

No, those temps are far from normal. I'd check that your HSF is properley attached. ie all the pins are firmly pushed in.

Some good CPU Heatsinks are the TRUE 120mm, or either the Noctua NH-U12P or NH-C12P. There are a few others that are good too.

nVidia GeForece gt325m - The NVIDIA? GeForce? GT 325M GPU hits the sweet spot for mobile users who demand great performance and an awesome multimedia experience.
Western Digital 5200rpm sata 2

This laptop has been a hottie since I've got it. I bought it about 2010 mid-December. Maybe this laptop was designed for these temperatures? Even notebookcheck.net says that during stress test this laptop reached 97C CPU temperature (Review MSI FX600 Notebook - Notebookcheck.net Reviews).
In this laptop bios I can change performance level. LV1, LV2(recommended), LV3, LV4 and LV5. Since this laptop is running hot, I use LV1 level.

Please, dont recommend for me to clean this laptop, or buy a pad for cooling it.
I can't clean it because of a warranty sticker, so i cant open this laptop.
I can't buy pad, because I use this laptop in different rooms, it would be very uncomfortable.

I think that it would be great if you would recommend any program, which would start stopping my CPU when temperatures would reach 80C.

Answer:Temperatures

Try using a differnet program like hwonitor.

Software temperture monitoring is not always accurate, try looking in the bios to see what the temps are like there, hw monitor says my cpu is idleing very low, sometimes like 14c, which isnt right at all, speedfan says that one of my componants, that isn't there, is at -128c and that i have a massive volatage drop on my 3.3 v, whihc i know it hasnt.

Laptop cpus do run hot, the i5 450m has apparantly got a max temp of 105c and ive read people palying games with the cpu at 85-90c for hours without problems, cpus have safe guards in place to protect against overheating, try bencing for at least an hour and see if the system remains stable.

on start up the temp was 55c
and then suddenly rised to 72c, and then reached 77c.

Apparently ~60?C is the max for that CPU, so therefore your temperatures are too high.

Answer:Temperatures

If you do not have air conditioning and running the computer in hot ambient air. The readings are going to be high. I use Core Temp on my son's laptop. It does a better job then Speed Fan in reading the temps. A lot of heat comes from the hard drives alone. Next is the GPU if you are pushing it really hard.

I presume that one has three bits of kit which could expeience performance drop off with temperature rise, the CPU, the RAM and the VGA. The CPU and the VGA already have coolers fitted, so what exactly am I going to measure? The outside skin of the cooler or a more general space temperature in the case, or perhapse an inlet and an exhaust from the case.
I haven't set up the m/b yet, but, if it is anything like the previous P5B board, then ASUS will have built in a sensor system which actually would measure the heart of the CPU. rendering my little sensors so much powder fluff!!!

Mine is not to bad. Motherboard 32c, cpu 46c. The comuter has been on all day, think this is alright for a barton cpu.

I installed a 3d Rocket Cooler on my Intel Pentium 4 520. On the stock HSF, I usually get 45C/53C on stock. Now I'm getting 41C/64C on stock. The reviews I've checked show a 3d Rocket Cooler (not Pro) reducing full load temps by 10C. What have I done wrong?

Answer:Ahh! TEMPERATURES!!!!

Make sure you didn't connect the power plug the wrong way around

Question: Temperatures

Hello people,

I have been checking into cpu temps and voltages just to keep an eye on things when I noticed one of my TMPIN temperatures is high. This would be TMPIN1 at 127c. I took a screen shot of Cpuid hardware monitor so you can see. I'm still not clear what they are for. Can someone let me know what I have to do to bring this temperature down? and or, what these are even for?

Good Evening,

I was wondering if someone could offer me some advice on a strange CPU temperatures.

The basic sum up is this, while playing Borderlands on my computer a couple of days ago after replacing the motherboard ( The cpu + heatsink were already installed ) and everything was normal and it just switched off, just turned off and would not turn on for a few mins. I thought ok, something probably over heated or what not!

So installed CPUID hardware moniter to watch my temperatures.

I idle around 50C on all 4 cores ( Intel Q6700 )
I play borderlands and the first two cores have gone up to 83C before I turned the game off and INSTANTLY dropped in temperature back down to about 50/60, even if I alt tab the temperate starts dropping right away.
Yet when I play heroes of Newearth all cores average 60C and go no higher ever.

What i find odd the heatsink is stone cold, there is no heat in the case at all. But why is it showing the temperature being so variable and so high without reason...

Could it be the heatsink isnt on right or there was something else wrong?

Any advice would be most appreciated!

Dan

PS -I ran heavyload and it pushed my temperature up to the mid 80's in seconds!

Question: CPU temperatures

At what temperature is considered "normal". Im running a pentium 3 933, and my case temperatures are in the late 30's (celsius), but my processor is at right about 50. Is this normal, or should i take xtra measures for cooling?
 

Answer:CPU temperatures

50 is a little high in my mind idling. I am running an P3 850 @ 1054 with an idle cpu temp of 38. I believe intel says 70 max but the machine will lock up well before that. Are you using retail fan/heatsink or another combo. If you installed yourself did you use thermal paster or even better arctic silver paste. My opinion

Since your CPU is sitting at 59C and your system is at 33C I would have to say that this is more of a CPU HS/fan issue. You may want to remove it, replace the paste and reseat it.

Question: PC temperatures.

I frequently see queries on this forum about someones cpu temperatures. How are these measured, is there a built in thermometer that I dont know about . I`m on WinXP home.

Answer:PC temperatures.

yes, most motherboards now have temperature sensors fitted, always one on the cpu, and others in diffenet locations.Asus provide a software monitoring utility with theri boards, asus probe.I have an asus, so use probe, but before that I used to use motherboard monitor click here it now looks like development has stopped but it is still available for download.CPU temperature will increase as the load increase - will get hottest playing games - and athlons are supposed to be able to go to 85 to 95 degC depending which chip you have, but I would be concerned if I was above 65 degC.

Hi there

I have just lost an Athalon XP2200 to, I think overheating, im now on to an XP2800, new mb new case etc but dont know what are the recommended temperatures

My Chaintech mb Digidoc reports it as 58C with a system temp of 38C

Ive put a Coolmaster Aero7+ fan on the cpu and have 2 inlet and 2 exhaust fans as well (its very loud) it but only way to get temp to around 50C is with the case right open.

Should I be worried at 55C-60C and do I need watercooling to get a quiet reliable PC

Any help appreciated

Question: GPU Temperatures

Afternoon all,Have found a way to enable extra settings in the display properties for my nVidia drivers(Overclocking facility) running a XFX GFX 5700. However I'm a little concerned about how overclocking will affect the temperature but have no way of montitoring it? Does anyone know of any utilites available for temperature monitoring graphics cards or any registry tweaks that will enable temp monitoring for the nVidia drivers?Also does anyone know what is a safe temperature if there is a monitor available?

Answer:GPU Temperatures

Unless there is a temperature sensor on the graphics card then there is no way that your computer can measure the graphics card temperature. This card, for example has a built-in temperature monitor click here. You could attach a temperature probe to the graphics chip for a remote display such as this one from Maplin click here.

Hi my computer has been crashing with the BSOD and I notice it happens after my computer is on for a while and im running a lot of programs at once. It think it might be the PWM temperature but the maximum it gets is about 56-58 degrees celsius. My CPU and System temp always remain at around 40. Could this be causing the crashing? or is it just a coincidence that I think my comp crashes after its been on too long? Please give me some answers these BSOD are getting really annoying.

Which one please?
 

Answer:Pc Temperatures.

HWiNFO 64 is very good and the PC info program I use. There is also a desktop gadget that you can download and use for it, so you can see your temps and readouts at all times. The gadget is up at their site, but I'm not sure if gadgets can be used in Win 8.1. If you just want straight temps, SpeedFan will give you that, and it will give you a look at your fan RPMs too...

I was wondering if my CPU temps were alright because I am a little concerned. I am using motherboard monitor to keep track of my temps at full load running my CPU fan at a low speed. (Have it at med or max makes me not sleep )

The reason it is at full load when I leave it overnight while I sleep if because I am encoding videos

CPU = 48*C
CPU CORE = 68*C
MOBO Chipset = 45*C

Does anyone think these are high? I was also not sure if motherboard monitor was configured right but since the CORE temp would be higher I thought I had set it up right.

CPU is using "LM90 local" sensor
CPU CORE is using "LM90 remote" sensor
MOBO chipset is using "WinBond 1" sensor
 

Answer:CPU Temperatures???

What are your specs? knowing the CPU would help put the temp into perspective.
Personally, I prefer mine to be a bit cooler than that, even at full load, but you are in no danger with those readings.

Question: Cpu Temperatures

My processor is running really high at about 50 degrees celsius while playing a game, and 28-30 at idle(checked speccy which someone told me to download from here) The fan is very loud and can hear it from far away. Have an AMD phenom x4 965.
 

Answer:Cpu Temperatures

Hi Yohomes,

50 degrees during load is not abnormally high for a phenom x4. I'd say that your temps are actually pretty decent (if using the stock heatsink and fan), and there is no urgent cause for alarm.

My dual-core E5400 Runs around 55 degrees at peak load using Intel burn-In, and idles around 36 degrees with a slight overclock on stock voltage. As 4 cores tend to run slightly warmer than 2, Yours sound about right.

The Maximum operating temperature for your phenom x4 965 seems to be 62 degrees celcius I believe. So if your peak temp spikes aren't topping 55-60 degrees, you will be safe.

have you run any type of stress-testing software like prime95 or OCCT to see what kind of maximum temps you're dealing with? most stress-tests will generate more heat than a game, and will show you if you need to upgrade your heatsink and fan or not.

If indeed you do need to upgrade your heatsink and fan, there are a few good coolers under $50 on newegg or other places that will chill your CPU out a bit.

Hi guys, I have an SL500 laptop (2746 - 4WM).I have upgraded it to windows 7 64 bit, and it has a segate momentus XT 500 GB hard drive in it. Otherwise, it is standard. (9300GS, T9400) I am concerned about it's operating temperatures: currently speed fan is saying it is running at GPU: 89CHD0: 58CTemp1: 71CCore 0: 67CCore 1: 67C This is after previously running a game, and now just doing basic tasks on it, such as web browsing and im, for 15 minutes.  Are these temperatures normal and if not, what should I do about them? I have also recently had issues when running games, where the laptop has just turned itself off instantly - when this occurs the laptop is very hot. Is this a self-pretection mechanism? Thanks in advance,Josh 

Answer:SL 500 temperatures

The GPU seems a bit hot... CPU seems reasonable.I'd consider repasting it; it might've dried out. The heatsink may also be loose.A sudden shutdown is generally an indication of overheating.

That is on the hot side, you ought to be aiming for around 50 under load less on idle. There have been quite a few recent threads on here regarding CPU cooling.

I have a box I made over the summer - C2D, yadda yadda yadda, and 5 hard drives (two of them raptors).

I also have a room in a house - said room has no heat. The house has heat, just the room doesn't. I have an electric heater, but I can only run it while I'm in the room and definitely not while I'm sleeping.

So, last night was the first cold night - my processor's idle dropped to 18C. Hey, great for the processor, right? But what about the hard drives? And my monitor? Will temperatures lower than 40F do damage to my components while they're running? If so, is there any company that makes a computer/monitor heater?

I was reading through various posting when I found a number querying CPU temperatures which made me think about mine.I have an AMD Athlon 64 3500+ which, according to Everest, idles at about 46*C with a fan speed of about 4100 RPM. When I`m rendering video I have seen this go to about 58*C with a fan speed over 5200 RPM.The Motherboard never seems to go above 36*C and the hds 41*C. The chipset fan seems to run almost constantly at about 8900 RPM. I have no indication of case or GPU fan speeds.Would this be normal and acceptable? I ask because of problems rendering video with Pinnacle and wodered if the true difficulties were with temperature protection cutting in.

is this a ? or ok ? need advice guys
 

Answer:my computer temperatures

What cpu do you have in there? Is that your idle temps or at full load?

If it is your idle temps, then (depending on what CPU you have) that is probably a bit high. Go into your bios and check what temps are being reported (2nd opinion, sometimes speedfan makes mistakes identifying the sensors) and get back to us.

I have 3 temperature sensors that I can monitor within SpeedFan. Only problem is, my second sensor I don't know if it's a case temperature, or a motherboard temperature. Is there such thing as motherboard temperature sensing?

The motherboard is an Asus A7V600-X. The first sensor is a CPU sensor, second is either motherboard or case sensor, and third is a HDD sensor.

Only reason I don't exactly know is because the second sensor reads 38C and the CPU sensor reads 39C both at Idle. It would seem those are a little too close to each other to be considered case temperature. Heres a screenshot, not sure if it matters but oh well.

This was the CPU under full load for about 10 minutes, the second sensor I have labeled right now as (Case) doesn't even budge!

Answer:Figuring Out Temperatures

Looks fine to me, cpu temp and case temp both affect each other hella lot. They can be that similar, Im guessing you have a nice room temp.
