Pc temperature increases - effect on room temperature

Q: Pc temperature increases - effect on room temperature

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?

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?

A:Core temperature or 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.

I'm running an Athlon XP 2400+ at 2GhZ and the temp is at a steady 50 degrees C when I monitor it in BIOS. Is this an accurate ready for when I'm in WinXP running applications and games, too? Or does my temp go higher than 50 when I start running programs? If so, how can I monitor my temperature for when I'm active?

Next, does anyone know/think the heatsink fan that comes with the XP cpus is good enough? Are there fans that are much better that will drop my temperature?

And finally, is 50 degrees C even that hot? What's the average user's temp with my specs? Thanks.

Hi everyone.

I just got a new computer and I have downloaded PC Wizard 2007 to check the temperatures (I had an overheating problem on my old one).
This is the result: http://img341.imageshack.us/img341/799/temperaturesxf9.jpg
(This is at mostly idle ... just a few IE windows open, Winamp etc.)

When I am playing games the Core temperatures go to 80-90C which I am guessing is way too much but the Processor (and Motherboeard) temp stays at 55-60C during that time. Also, the computer keeps behaving normally (no lag, programs launch quickly etc.)

So, which temperature should I keep an eye on ? Core or Processor ?
And why are Core temperatures so high ?
Another question is about the 12V Voltage that seems low but I have no idea what to do to up it to arount 12V ?

My system specs:
AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ - 3,0 GHz
NVidia nForce 590 SLI
Double NVIDIAŽ GeForce? 8800 GTX - 768 Mo, SLI

Im still reletively new to this forum, and would like some general advice. My sister is currently at Uni and has a Desktop Pc with the following spec:

1.8GHz Processor, 80GB HDD, 1GB Ram and running Win XP Pro Sp2 on a ASUS Mainboard

Recently, it has started an awful occurance of halting after around 3 hours. There is no 'BSOD' and there seems to be nuthing to cause it to completly freeze. The only way to get it back is a reboot. I have checked the Temperature settings through the software released by ASUS for mainboard monitoring and, it seems the CPU is running slightly high @ Circa 40 Deg C. I do have another machine that is an exact match spec wise, and the CPU on this one sits around Circa 30 Deg C. In the offending PC, we do have an external chassis fan that is spinning at around 2900 RPM and we can feel that fan 'dragging' the air through the PC.

Im outa ideas. Can anyone help??

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?

Hi all, i've got a question and here is...
After my motherboard has been repair (changed three regulators), it is very unstable when i'm running Win ME.
When i run program such as IE, outlook express, ACDsee...etc and others process of some s/w installation.. I mostly got an error message.. "the xxx.exe cause an error on xxxxx.dll(sometimes kernel.dll and others..) and going to be terminate"
then program was closed.

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

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

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

Greeting forum,I have recently purchased this laptop with the intent to game from time to time. The issue i'm having is that the CPU temperature in idle-surfing fluctuates from about 40-60C which as far as i've read is normal. However the moment i start playing games like Xcom-2 or Fallout 4(which admitedly are CPU intesive), the temperature jumps to about 80-85ish. Room temperature 25C, using a E-Prance x4 Cooler. So i'm wondering if that is an acceptable temperature for gaming? Thank you in advance.

Hello My City temperature is 48 C/ 119F.
And my room temperature is the same.

CPU Temperature is 72C/161F.
MB Temperature is 50C/122F.

So my question here is that if these temperatures can
have an affect on my computer? or any part of the computer?

Please also tells me how can I get solutions to any heat problem?

A:Is this Temperature enough for CPU?

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.

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.

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.

A:CPU Temperature

Assuming the temperature reading is accurate, 94 degrees C means your CPU is in danger of dying. You should open the side of your case and verify the CPU fan is turning, and verify the heatsink hasn't fallen off the CPU .

Let us know and we will help with fixing the problem.
