motherboard temperature bigger than CPU temperature

Q: motherboard temperature bigger than CPU temperature

having just installed a zalman heatsink/CPU fan i've started looking into the temperatures inside my PC...

my CPU temperature goes from 38C to 45 C depending on if i have the CPU fan running or not,

my motherboard temperature goes from 43C to 48C likewise depending on the CPU fan... which is around 5C above the CPU temperature...

should this bother me?

Can anyone confirm by how many degrees the room temperature would increase in an office if there were to be an increased number of PC's and Monitors?
I am assuming that this will be dependant on the size of the office, the temperature of the computers and the number of staff in the office.
Does an equation exist to work out the increase in temperature?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hey all,

I've installed a prog called Speccy to check out temperatures while playing games and the thing that concerns me is that my motherboard gets really hot (around 80'C) while the game is on, but when idle it is about 40-45'C...

Is that too hot??

I'll attach a snapshot so someone with that program can see what are my PC specs..

Cheers guys and thanks for the help

They say that it can be up to 85 C to be OK.
If the Probe2 reading or bios gives an error,ignore it.

A:Motherboard Max Temperature

That 50c is very high for mobo chipset, hows your case cooling, make shure of proper circulation. intake and exhaust fans. 50c for mobo is tad too high, try to hit 40's at least, by rearranging fans or changing some thang. GL<

Two PCs running at around 35/37 degC and CPU fan running around 800 to 1900rpm. The third PC which is around 3 years old runs at 45 degC on the CPU and 54degC on the mobo and the CPU fan is running at up to 3000rpm, which would explain why it is noisy. Is this too high? The heatsink is dusty, but I've not bucked up courage to remove it and clean it yet. Local guy suggested vacuuming it I've got some thermal paste but no air yet. Should I be looking at changing the heatsink and fan and adding a bigger case fan to cool things down?


A:CPU/Motherboard temperature

Blow the dust out with canned air. 3-5$ a can. (please do it outside ) Vacuuming works but it's risky. I do it myself, but you can potentially permanently damage the whole system, so it's not recommended. 45 is not extremely high, the CPU will work at 60-70 just fine, but it's not healthy. Don't spend money to bring the temps down, after you undust it, it should be running at low enough temperatures.

If the fan keeps running at high speeds and annoys you, you might want to consider replacing it, or using BIOS settings to keep the speed at reasonable levels. Post your system model or motherboard/CPU model if you want advice on that side of this.

I am currently monitoring my motherboards temperature.

My setup uses standard fans to keep it cool. I have intentions to change this in the future but not right now.

The most common figures I see is usually between 39C - 49C.

As I know nothing about hardware I was wondering if there is a recommended temperature to turn the computer off. For example I would like to know what temperature isn't safe or is considered "too high". If needed I can provide specifications.

Any help is great

My power supply is a LITTLE bit worriesome. it's fine in the comp's idle state but on load (such as in half life 2)...it does get quite hot. I heard that it's a huge problem if it's too hot to touch. This isn't the case with me. It gets at a slightly "uncomfortable" heat level... as in i could keep my hand on it for as long as i wanted but it's just hot. I'm guessing...judging by my GPU temp and it's feel about 55 C maybe? on the top of the PSU. maybe it's because it's 550w and my comp needs a lot of power? i dont know. i have 1x 120mm blue led Thermaltake intake fan on the front of my case. 1x 80mm LED fan on the window. 1x normal 120mm fan on the back(exhaust) and a pci slot blower.

Hy everyone, my laptop lately has been acting up, the motherboard temperature at idle jumps randomly up 60, i have ran several antiviruses and malwabytes programs and my laptop is clean, i have checked every processor running in the background and nothing seems to be off, just recently i got my laptop cleaned and i noticed major improvement in temperature, it might seem weird but if im using any program temperature doesnt raise above 50, i even play MW2 and it says below 60, but as soon as i get off my laptop after about 10 to 15 minutes motherboard temp jumps to 60 and goes down while the cpu stays in range between 42 and 45.
My hands are tied, im really confused about this, i would appreciate any help.

I have an old gfxcel pcchips 757 motherboard with celeron 433mhz . It used to run at around 55 degrees centigrade and now suddenly I found the temperature at 73 degrees. Then I checked the fan and it showd jerky movements and looked slow and then I changed the fan. But even after changing the fan the motherboard temperature has not fallen and it stays at 73 or 74 for most of the time. ( cpu temp is not high and usually it is below 35 C)
I check these temperature readings from aida 32.
I will be very thankful if anyone can tell me about the right temp of this motherboard and if it is safe to keep working at this temp.
I asked a techie about it and he said that it was okay and that I should not worry about it and keep working at these high temps and close the computer only if the computer started hanging. But I am not satisfied and ask for your opinion . thanks in advance.

When booting the cold PC the MB temperature reads about 8 degrees C above the room temperature!
The CPU temperature at boot up is at about room temperature as one would expect.

During normal operation (room about 25 C) the MB temperature rises to 45 C or higher; whilst the CPU temp reading is only about 30 C. In other words the CPU temp is consistently way below the MB temp.

Can I believe any of the readings?
What do you experts think about this?
What is a critical temp for the MB?
Do I need to worry?

Ok, this is very strange. I have installed MBM 5 on my newest computer, and the temps look great idle, as well as full load playing games. But the last 2 days it seems there are temperature spikes or MBM reporting incorrectly.
I have come home from work to find that the proc temp reached above my set limit of 70C, and the pop up box asks whether or not I want to ignore it or turn off computer.
Well when I see that screen it is reporting good temps, around 50C.

So, is this a problem with MBM, or am I having probs with my machine?

This is the error recorded in the log.
| 4/29/2004 | 6:15:58 PM | Alarm for CPU : it has reached 71C and this is on/past the value of 70C which you set as high alarm value.

A:Motherboard Monitor is reporting critical temperature spikes

Even 50 deg. is high. Why don't you install CPU-idle? Get version 6.0b or version 7 Extreme.
My not OC'd Athlon 1900 never goes over 32 deg, using the Zalman Flower CNPS6000-Cu (fan at 2200 rpm) and CPU-idle 6.0b.

Could it be possible that your CPU-cooler is not completely tight onto the CPU? After all, it hangs on its side all the time.

When testing, I use both HWM Pro, AMD Overdrive and LCD Poster to watch out for the temps.

In both HWM Pro and LCD poster there is the CPU temperature showing.

I use AMD overdrive to look for Core temps...

The max temp is 62C...

Is that the max CPU temp or max CPU core temp???

While testing, Highest CPU temp was 53C (@3.8GHz, IntelBurn) and Core temp was 59C....

So which one shall I look out for?

What is the standard upper and lower control limits when setting up your CPU temperature controlers?

This is my current system:

Intel Pentium 4 511J

MotherBoard: ECS P4M800-M7 V3.1

Processor Temperature: 122 F
Main Board Temperature: 95 F

If you need more data please let me know.



A:CPU Temperature

122 degrees F is only 49 degrees Celcius, not that hot, a bit warm but ideal temp would be about 43 or less. And 95 F is only 35 C so that is no way too hot. Perfect for the motherboard in fact.

Well it would help to know what CPU you have at what clockspeed ?
but If I had to guess I would assume 55c idle would be a little high as your only at 1.11v, but seeing how the mobo is close to the cpu your ambient temp must be high? as well it could be that you need better air flow in your case

I recently bought a Intel Core i7-8700K CPU, but I'm having some issues with the temperature

It has been running smoothly the past week and I have encountered no problems at all, but the temperature readings are ridiculously high

Idle its around 43C, but the moment I turn on some videogame (Like League of Legends) it bolts up to 90-100C really quickly. Isn't that unusually high for a game that isn't that hard to run?

Anyways, I use a program called HWMonitor to monitor the CPU temperature.
After doing some digging I found out that the "core temperatures" are at the previously stated values, but there is also a "surface temperature" that stays at 32-37C when I boot games. Which one is the correct one to follow?

I can also add that the cooling fan is quite old and runs at around 1000rpm, and I don't have any thermal paste/grease etc applied.

I have already ordered a new fan+thermal paste and try to keep my CPU loads to a minimum while I wait for the package

But I suppose that my main question is above all "Why does the CPU temperature go up so much when its under low load?"

A:CPU temperature

I can also add that I never experienced any particual CPU throttle nor crashes.
I might never have noticed until I downloaded the monitor programs

My CPU temp is reading between 55dC and 58dC on Idle. I know the temp will go up when useing applications heavily. That makes me concerned about the idle temp.

I run lots of 3D games, Paint Shop Pro, and AutoCAD. If I'm running these apps, I'm afraid I might be overheating the CPU. I've noticed some random freezes, but after a reboot, the temp is at the tidle temp. So I don't that's the cause of the freezes.

I didn't build the computer, I bought it pre-built. I've only had it a couple of days, so I'd just like to make sure the computer is safe for longivity.

My NEW Antec power supply is 350W and has the standard fan in the back, and an additional fan aimed into the case. There is no other fans into or out of the case. I have, what looks like (a circle shape of holes under the PS), room for a case fan on the back of the case, but no room for a side case fan.

Would I need a new case with fans to lower my temp?

I am working on a new build and I am concerned about the cpu temp.

At the moment, I have the system only posted into bios. The new Gigabyte board has a cpu temp monitor that I am looking at on the bios screen. I do not have any other hardware or software installed or running and the temp is 42C.

The cpu is a celeron 2.93 gig. I have an "Ultra" brand aluminum heatsink with silver thermal paste applied. The ambient temperature her in my basement at the moment is 60 degrees F. The side cover to the case is off and I have one 93mm case fan running along with the CPU fan.

I'm thinking that 42c IDLE , with such a low room temperature seems high.....

A:cpu temperature

That isn't high at all, given that the Celeron 2.93GHz dissipates 73W* (Socket478) or 84W* (Socket775), that's the same as an Athlon64 3500+.

* this is the thermal design power, the maximum power dissipation is higher

I'm thinking of overclocking my CPU/GPU to see how fast it would run.
At the moment running firefox with 6 tabs, windows explorer, skype, a temperature scan app and downloading a driver and a game both downloading at around 8 MB/s my temperature is around:
1st core 35-37
2nd 31-33
3rd 35-38 Intel core i5 3.2 Ghz Quad core
4th 42-44
all in celcius.
Is it safe to overclock and if it is then how high should I go?

A:CPU Temperature

Those are good temperatures, but they will move up as you start to overclock and they are also dependent on the ambient temperature.

No one can say "how high should I go". There are too many variables---voltage, ambient temperature, which particular i5 you have, the cooler you have, your prior overclocking experience, how much time you are willing to spend on learning, how much money you can spend for better cooling solutions, how much it would matter if your PC crashes, whether or not the PC is used for anything important rather than just "playing", etcetera, etcetera.

Voltage is a critical factor.

There are dozens and dozens of Internet sites devoted to overclocking. I'd suggest you start there and start learning, rather than expect some easy answers.

Hi everyone!

Certainly the question was asked yet, but let me please tell you about my problem :

I had a new mother-board last week. After installing it, and also my CPU (recuperated on my old board), everything runs well but when i use Speedfan there is a "temp3" very high... With my old board, that value was "-129" or "-179?C" so i never worried, but here this is between 70 and 80?C.
So i thought i had put too much thermal paste or maybe crashed my processor and decided to buy a new one (for my pleasure too, of course).
Operation done, i turn on the pc, everything runs well,... and Speedfan : Temp3 72?C!
I tried all logs : HWMonitor, HMonitor, Everest... : idem, pareil, same

Could someone please have a look at those values and tell me if i have to worry or not cause i don't even dare to play a game...

Temperatures in BIOS are : System 44?C, CPU 41?C.

I have the Asus pc-probe and it shows that my CPU is at 41 - 42c and the mobo is at 41c. Is this too hot? What should the temperature be?

I haven't used the probe app for quite some time and I seem to remember it used to be just under 40. Today for the first time ever my computer suddenly rebooted itself - twice. maybe just a fluke but the first thing I thought of is the temp so I took a look at the probe. I'm not overclocking or anything. I just dont know what is normal.

A:What is the Right Temperature?

Temps are decent in the 35-50 range. If you stress it out a little and then it blows and reboots after a heat up period and you're pushing through the 60s for extended periods, then you have a possible overheating problem.

If you have speed step fans they should always run at minimum speed at idle and rarely speed up with normal use and sometimes to often speed up under continual high load.

62C at rest is a bit warm. Although it's not terribly out of spec with a athlon 64 with a stock heatsink.. If your planning on heavy gaming with that machine you may wish to invest in some better cooling equipment and paste..

I have recently become aware that high CPU temperatures can cause crashes.

A:CPU temperature

It all depends which processor your running as Athlons run a lot warmer than Intels this said its on the high side for the former too.I would investigate the airflow within your case and see if the case fans are working and if they are not fitted you could invest in a rear and/or front case fan to improve temps.
Moving it off the floor,away from radiators,out of closed cabinets and clearing out any dust bunnies from the fans and heatsink will help too.

50c is fine if that is the temp under load. If it is idling at 50C it is however a bit on the high side. I suggest opening the computer case and cleaning the heatsink. If it is full of dust that is probably your issue.
