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?

Hello,
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!

I was wondering that if my Mobo is at 40c.. is that good or bad? HMonitor shows a "yellow" background behind the temperature reading. Does this mean "Caution"? I might install a second fan at the top of the case if needed.

I spoke to asus today Tech Support.
They say that it can be up to 85 C to be OK.
If the Probe2 reading or bios gives an error,ignore it.
I'm about 50 C,no problems.

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<

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..

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?

Rosalind
 

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.

Hi,

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.

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?

Motherboard: ASUS P5V800-MX

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.

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.

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.

I just figured that my HDDs - IBM 40GB and Maxtor (written IBM here as well, sorry) 80GB 2mb - run at around 50C each. I heard that the limit is around 45C. I'm worried that it's a little bit too hot. Of course, it's summer right now, but I guess it's too hot anyway.

I have Athlon 1800+ running at 61C right now. Couple days ago that reached 70. Well, this is not that bad I suppose.
I'm only afraid the HDDs might suffer condensation.
What's the min/max temperature they can stand?
Is it common to have a HDD cooler? Cause I don't have one.
Btw, just one simple case fan and a small case. CPU cooler with thermal grease.
Some suggestions would help as I have no idea. Perhaps the drives are always hot and I just didn't notice it before. Installed them in direct vicinity. I suppose one gets the heat from the other one as well.
Thanks in advance!
 

A:HDD temperature

I think your machine IS running a little hot.

Although I am not really sure that its about to explode in your face, or anything, I think that perhaps you should be investing in a better CPU cooler setup - because that's a lot hotter than my Ahtlon 2100+ XP which I guess runs about 40C or something. Maybe less sometimes. My cooler has a copper base. The default I tend to see in BIOSs these days for an auto-shutdown temperature is 70C or so, so its certainly not the best temp you have there, no.

As to the hard drives, my hard drives are very hot sometimes, especially in a machine packed with lots. You should try to think about at least cooling the hard drive that has your important data on it - but that's never any guarantee that a hard drive won't fail anyway.

I would recommend, if you really like adding to your machine and expanding it, and are concerned about heat and stuff, then think about moving all of your guts into a bigger case. Get a better PSU and more case fans and a nice better CPU fan and all should be sweet, I think.

GA P55A UD3P, I5 760, Win 7 Ultimate x64 OEM, CPU fan set to max rpm. All temps in Celsius. No over clocking.

New build and I am concerned about CPU temperature.
I have set and reset the stock cooler three times now using Arctic Silver.

I measure temps with Core Temp. Have calibrated Core temp to correspond to the temperature shown in Bios. 40 degrees at boot up. Probably Tcase. Core Temp also shows the Lynnfield as having a max Tj of 99 degrees. I take this as max core temp.

When prime 95 is run in combination mode for 20 minutes my high low is 36 - 84. I suppose core temps are 5 or 10 degrees more.

The tests where run with front and back panels off, in an air conditioned room, 24 degrees, with the air conditioner blowing directly on the motherboard. So computer case temperature, or ambient, should not be a problem.

I have tried Fan Speed and it seems very inaccurate with core readings of 21 at idle. My bios says the Tcase is 40. Even this seems improbable. If the CPU case is 40 at idle then the core temps must be
45 or 50. Gee that seems like a high temperature to start at.

I don't know if the temps are accurate. Can anyone tell me how to
get accurate readings or inform me of what I am doing wrong?

A:CPU temperature

Boy there is a lot of controversy, information and misinformation on this subject. I have been searching for data an answers.

Pretty bad when I am the only one to reply to my own post. I suppose that is because it is such a "squirly" subject.

I just had to make some SWAG decisions and go with them on my CPU heat (problem?).

The Speed Fan and Core temp programs for monitoring temperatures gave wild values. My own bios tells me
I idle at 50C on Tc (T on CPU case). I don't believe it.

Room temp is 24C and the front and back panel are off with the air conditioner blowing right at the motherboard. I have reset the CPU, stock heat sink, with Arctic Silver, 3 times and am pretty sure it is as good a setting as possible.

I figure at idle Tc is 5c above ambient and Tj (T of core) is 10c above that. My SWAG estimate for core temp at idle then, is 40C.

The Real Temp program gives me nearly that figure and I calibrate it to 40C for idle core temp.

Running Prime95 for 20 minutes shows the cores level off at 20 - 21C lower than Tmax. Tmax for the i-760 is 99C.

I will take this as good as I can do and be done with it. I do not think the CPU will overheat.

Finish!! Kaput!!!

Hi I just built a computer for my friend.

I used a micro ATX motherboard (MSI K72NMG), which by the way is one of the best motherboards ive ever used.

I put all this great stuff in a nice gaming case, the GAURDIAN (http://www.atxcases.com/Cases/gaurdian.htm), and seem to have pretty good airflow.

Tell me if I have this airflow right - the fan on the side panel is an exhaust (sucking out hair), I then have to back fans (exhaust) which are vented toward the heatsink (in order to suck air directly from there). Then one fan in the front INTAKE, blowing in air. I think it is all working out pretty well,

Then one fan in the front INTAKE, blowing in air. I think it is all working out pretty well," - Hopefully you do not have hair in your Computer

Yeah thats a good setup but usually so many fans are not even required.

Its hard to say why yours is running warmer. But different components yield different results - different CPU, heatsink, motherboard sensor(they are not exact). Different fans move different amounts of air and different heatsinks have different thermal properties. Check the air flow rating of your heatsink; the CFM. Sometimes its just a matter of re-applying better thermal paste. Also make note of the case/motherboard temp - a lower case temp will result in a lower CPU temp.

Hell Everyone...

Im Running Vista Ultimate SP2 32bit on my Acer Aspire Laptop which has a Core Duo T2350, 2GB of DDR2 RAM....

My CPU temperature when idle is around 60-65 degrees C. However, when i run any 3D programs or 3D games my CPU temperature jumps up to 85-92 Degrees C. is that normal, or should i get my laptop Checked out?? please help me out...

Thnx..

Extra Info.

Core Clock: 1862.24 MHz
Thorttle: 1862.24 MHz
FID: 14.0x

A:CPU Temperature!

Hello zombifier,
That does seem to be a bit hot, but in your part of the world its going to get hot.
I would clean all the vents and make sure the system fan is working OK.
Another option is to get a Laptop cool mat, this will reduce the temperature.

Hope this helps, good luck and post your results.

So my computer has been getting overheat errors lately

My pirform defraggler says im at 38 C but CoreTemp gives a more comprehensive real time temperature on my 4 cpu cores, from 70c to 95c

So who exactly should I trust, and am i getting genuine overheat error?

I just cleaned out my heat sink but the temperature seems to be the same

I don't use Defraggler, but I don't see why it would be giving a CPU core temperature. It's probably giving you the hard drive's temperature.

Anyway, 70 to 95?C is very hot. What CPU do you have?

could someone help me on my cpu temp its bugging me for a while now, my bios says my temp is around 50-53c but other softwares tells me a different temperature! i dont know which one i should follow! heres some pics of the different temp checker softwares, and could someone tell me if 50c is still in the safe side from what ive heard you should at least have 30-40c! the everest program has the hottest temperature, check the sidebar, my rig is a c2d e6650 2.3 ghz i ddnt overclock it my mobo is ecs g31t-m videocard is 8600gt 256mb and 2gig of ram ive got like 3 fans working inside my cpu and the stock processor fan of intel.
 

A:i need help on my cpu temperature!

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.

I have a AMD 64 bit 3200+ and when i turn on my computer to check the CPU temperature its already at about 62 degree celcius. 62?!?!??! thats insane? i check my case temperature read out one one of my cd rom bays and it says the case temp is 24 C. which is pretty damn good. I was wondering is 62 degrees Celcius what the 64's are suppose to run at? also after leaving computer on/gaming it never gets higher than 67 degrees celcius.
I have a MSI MS-6702 K8t Neo motherboard. room stays cool and (since i bought the computer from a manufacturer) i assume the CPU was installed right.
Any info guys?
thanks
 

A:AMD 64 bit temperature?

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..

AMD's white papers on the athlon 64's list normal operating temps 60C-65C..

I know that the temp sensor doesn't read the actual temp. of a cpu since it doesn't touch.My question is--What is the maximum safe temp. for a socket a processor? Mine has read up to 119*f.Is that too bad?
