Pc temperature increases - effect on room temperature

Q: Pc temperature increases - effect on room temperature

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!

It is now getting pretty hot here in Korea so my room is getting warm too. How hot is too hot for the ambient temperature? Does it not matter as long as my computer isn't overheating? Is it the same for both laptops and desktops? I use my ultra thin laptop (like a ultrabook) to play Minecraft sometimes and it does get pretty warm to the touch on the keyboard in the summer when playing, but does that mean it's overheating?

I'll say something like 33?c/92?f start to raise the temps when in game or using hungry memory softwares. Better change the thermal paste on Desktop just before the hot days of summer. One can put a room fan too.

Also could be a good idea for a Laptop to have one of those cooler to put underneath.

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?

Hi,

I have an AMD 955 CPU and ROG Crosshair III formula motherboard

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?

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.

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.

Hi

Does anybody know the max and normal temperature of northwood intel pentium 4 2.66 ghz?
The highest was a 74C. I need to know this because I transfered everything to a new box and added 2 more fans.
I have a big box, 500 wats psu, 2 frontal fans that suck air and push it in the computer, 1 fan in the back that sucks air from the pc and pushes it out. The psu also has 2 fans, 1 that pushes air out. It has plenty of ventilation.
The average temperature is usually 50-51. Is that good?
Should I change the 2 frontal fans to suck air out of the pc? I put them that way to make an airflow system. Theres also a heatsink on the motherboard.

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.

Whoa, that seems way to hot and over time that can damage parts of your computer. IMO you should shoot to keep everything below 50c at the very least.

Have you checked to make sure your fans are blowing the right direction? Typcially you want air being pulled in from the front/sides and blown out through the back. You may want to upgrade to more powerful fans even thought hey tend to be somewhat loud.

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.

A:Max temperature of RAM?

I don't think 48C is anything to worry about it that's the maximum. There is a rule of thumb about semiconductors, each 10C rise in temperature reduces the life by 1/2. However, I suspect that if the temperature normally runs in the 30's and only gets to 48C under full load, the RAM will outlive you.

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.

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.

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 just figured that my HDDs - IBM 40GB and Maxtor (written IBM here as well, sorry) 80GB 2mb - run at around 50°C each. I heard that the limit is around 45°C. 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 61°C 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.

Its an AMD FAQ about safe CPU Temps. Basically the maximum Operating Temp for an Athlon XP is 90 C.

So 50-55 is definitely fine. I've found that Athlons tend to run from 45-60 degrees Celsius. Obviously cooler the better, but I think you're ok!

i dunno why these happened. But this Win ME is newly implemented. And when i use a program named Hardware monitor, it shows the MB(it should be motherboard) temp. is around 35 degree, and the CPU temp. is around 65 degree, the Power temp(it should be the power supply??). is around 96 degree~~~

so i want to know such temperatures are normal/usual??
and is that cause thw WinMe become unstable?

Moreover, i implemented a LAN card also. It is Surecom(ep320xr). Is it possible that the WinME unstable is cause by the IRQ interference between the LAN card and other hardware?? (although the device manager didnt say so...)

Thank you~

and here is my PC configuration:
AMD K6-2 400mHz (no overclocking)
192mb ram
2themax MVP3E-M motherboard
IBM 30G hard disk
Surecome ep320xr 10M/100M Lan card

PS. the link of the Hardware monitor

A:CPU, MB temperature

The motherboard temp is fine.
I have no idea on power supply temp but 96 degrees c would definitely have me worried.
The cpu temp is too high.

Check that your cpu fan is attached properly or better yet reattach it using some thermal compound.
Is your power supply fan working

Hi

I have a P4 3.00GHz 800Mhz FSB processor with 2Gb PC400 DDR, on a Gigabyte 8KNXP motherboard.

I am currently using the standard Intel HS & fan and the BIOS temperature reading of my CPU shows that it idles at about 52 degrees, and under load rises to about 57-58 degrees. At this temperature, the fan is quite noisy, rotating at 4500 rpm.

Is this the normal operating temperature, as it seems a bit hot?

I was thinking of upgrading the HS & fan and was looking at the Coolermaster Aero 4 or the Thermaltake P4 Spark 7+. I don't particularly want the noise level to rise too much, but I would want a good cooler.

I already have intake and extractor fans in the case.

I was also looking at water cooling, but it is a bit excessive it is not really necessary, and I don not have that much room in my case.

I would appreciate your thoughts.

Cheers

The temperature is a bit high. I would be looking for ways to cool it myself if it was mine. I am sure others can point you to good HS and fans combinations. Also make sure to use a quality thermal paste.

I just built a new AMD system for the first time. Here's what I have then i'll get to my question: Asus A7N8X2.0 Deluxe motherboard, AMD XP Athlon 3000 with a thermaltake k7 volcano 11+ xaser edition fan for the cpu , 1024MB of kingston hyperx pc2700 ram, aspire 500W atx dual fan power supply, sound blaster audigy 2 platinum, dvd rom, cdr/rw rom, floppy drive, and a thermaltake xaser 3 super tower with 7 fans and fan control monitor/controller. Okay here's my question is the cpu temperature i'm getting good or bad or what should it be at? asus monitor says cpu temp 45C/113F but the thermaltake connector which I connected under the cpu says 57.6c/136.1F are these temps god or bad? The fan has adjustable speed control and I have the other 7 fans on high. If I let the cpu decide and just hook the connectors into it the fan is running at 4800 rpm's all the time and it sounds like my vaccuum really loud. Help please I don't want to destroy the computer since I just put it togeather.
