Core temperature or CPU temperature?

Q: Core temperature or CPU temperature?

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?

Hello,

A few weeks ago I bought a new PC with a dual core processor (3800+). In the last few days I checked the temperatures with a few programs like everest, Sisandra, SpeedFan etc but each say soemthing else. what I mean by that, is that they all detect the same C numbers but associate it with a different part. for example, Everest reports the MB is 32C and the CPU is 70C while PC Wizard 2006 reports CPU as 25C. SpeedFan I dont even know which part is which since it only names them as Temp1, Temp2, Temp3 etc.

Problem is, that Everest, SensorsView and Sisandra (partly and I'll explain why) think its the CPU at 70C. when I say Sisandra is partly saying its the CPU, its because under "Mainboard information" it says CPU 1 temp 34C but CPU 2 temp 70C while on the "CPU & BIOS" section it says each core is 32-34C. and the tip it gives me is that the mainboard is too high temperature. so as you can see they're conflicting their own readings.

When I go to the BIOS it always says the CPU temp is around 35C and I even set it to alert me at 60C.
Last night, while being on windows I started to hear short one second beeps coming from the inside of the PC and I had to shut the PC down to make it stop. when I turn it on a minute later it was fine as usual. this morning, I guess after PC was turn on for max an hour, it started with the beeps again. and again now as I type this message and I was clicking on "Mainboard information" in Sisa...

I recently built a PC and I've been noticing that it runs pretty hot. The specs are:

P4 3.2 ghz Prescott with Zalman CNPS7700-AlCu Ultra Quiet CPU Cooler
1GB OCZ Gold Dual Channel DDR RAM
250 GB Seagate SATA Harddrive
PNY 7800 GT (256mb)

Now I noticed there's a lot of heat building up inside the case, so I checked the GPU core temperatures and I was up at 55C and that was under minimal load. Playing a game, I reached around 70-75C. I was wondering are these safe temperatures for the GPU to be operating at? I've got the Zalman CPU cooler on full speed.

Also, I think I'm going to get a case fan, but I don't want to drill in my case. On the back, there's 2 grills near the top/side that say DUAL FAN. One grill says 8x8cm and one says 7x7cm. They both have 2 holes drilled diagonally. So if I buy a 80mm case fan, will it work there? The grill is also weird in that it's more of a bunch of slits that point down, will the fan still work with it?

Thanks in avdvance.
 

A:Safe GPU Core Temperature

You should be able to fit an 80mm exhaust fan to your case. This will help with overall temps.
As for gpu temps, those are about normal. I see around 62-65C for my 6600gt.

FWIW the the driver defaults to a max temp of 145C as the temp to begin core slowdown.

Here is a screenshot of my current temp with the core slowdown threshold shown as 145C.

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?

This is a matter of opionion, as different people will have different ideas as to what is considered safe. On my previous desktop I had an AMD Athlon x64 Dual Core, and my cooling system had it at around 45/57c (idle/load). At the time, that was acceptable to me.

Now, with my AMD Phenom 9600 Quad, even with the brutal summer temperatures we get here in South Africa, I've peaked at around 32/47c (idle/load).

What temperatures are you getting? (Both idle and loaded)

Hey everyone I recently bought a new computer about 2 months ago and to be honest it works great. I recently (2 days ago) started playing SC2 and I'm playing it with everything on ultra and it runs perfectly fine but I heard my video card make this noise I think its the fan I'm not sure it starts to spin faster.
So tonight I decided to download riva tuner to check out my video card temparature and right now (I'm not playing SC2) the core temparature is at 61 and when I start playing SC2 goes up to 70.

I had a terrible experience releated to overheating my old computer motherboard overheated and gave a horrible blue screen of death so I just wanna make sure this dosen't happen again.

This are my comp specs.

System Model: Studio XPS 8100
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i3 CPU 530 @ 2.93GHz (4 CPUs), ~2.9GHz
Memory: 3072MB RAM
Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Card name: NVIDIA GeForce GTS 240
Manufacturer: NVIDIA
Chip type: GeForce GTS 240

A:Is my video card core temperature ok...?

Yes that is absolutely fine as they are within manufacturers stated operating zone. Most cards that are employed to work intensively operate between 60 and 80c.

There are a lot of variables involved which determine temps, one of which is the game being played, some require more juice than others.

If it starts to ever reach 90-95+ then it's time to check things are functioning as they should.

Hello,
Since a few days ago my laptop fan runs very often and makes quite noise, even if I am only surfing in the internet, not playing games or something like that. I bought this laptop last January and it is a good machine and powerful, I think it is not normal this is happening. I'd like to ask you how can I diagnose if the core temperature is higher than normal values, why it is happening and how can I solve this.

A:High temperature in Intel Core i7412mq

You need to fill out your system specs with more detail so we know what we are dealing with.

You can use HWInfo64 to check temperatures and fan speeds.

Get it here. It's free.

HWiNFO, HWiNFO32/64 - Download

Are you sure the noise is coming from the fan?

Laptops run hot anyway. You could have a failing fan, clogged fan vents, or something that is causing your CPU to work harder than normal that is causing the fan to work hard.

Post a screen shot of what you see in HWInfo64, particularly the fan speeds.

I'm at my wit's end. I've thrown money at a new case, two tubes of Arctic Silver 5 and a bottle of isopropyl-alcohol so far and my problem still persists. I just cannot keep the idle temperature of my Pentium 4 530 (Prescott) below 55C, and it's damn near impossible to prevent it from throttling back under 100% load. The core temp skyrockets from ~60C idle to 85C in just a few seconds with an infinite while-loop.

I've applied different amounts of Arctic Silver with somewhat impressive idle temperature results (lowest so far being 50.5C) but the temperature easily exceeds 80C under load in all cases. I've pressed the heatsink as flat as possible against the CPU heat-plate - measuring the length of each protruding socket "foot" at the back of the motherboard to the nearest millimeter. Stranger still, the CPU fan speed maxes out at 2720 rpm even at high temperatures (it used to roar like a Boeing 747 at 4800 rpm not too long ago).

Besides buying a new heatsink, what do you folks recommend?

I have tried several software monitoring programs (real temp, core temp, OCCT)
And they show both cores at Idle at 41C. When I stress my CPU core #1 goes up to 51C max, core #0 never moves off 41C.Not a critical problem but curious why. I searched on Google but only found stuff about not showing extra cores. Found something about advanced options in MSconfig set to boot with 2 cores and I checked that. Looked in the bios but couldn't find anything relevant. PC health in bios showed 1 temperature 36C. I do have the stuff in the bios turned on that clocks the CPU down to 2GHz while idle and as soon as it gets a load it goes up to 3GHz. I guess it is possible that the core #0 temp diode is bad. Well I guess I will find out, I have a modified 771to 775 Xeon X5472 quad coming in a couple of weeks for this board and will see how it picks up those cores.

One of my Intel Core 2 Quad processor cores has a temperature consistently lower than the other 3 cores, WHY?

Hello. I have a question. I need to know the reason why one of my cores (Core 2) is running about 3-4 degrees below the temperatures of the other 3 cores on my Intel Core 2 Quad processor. Restarting and rebooting seems not to help, it is always the same core with the lower temperature. Is there something wrong with that particular core or something overly defective with the processor itself??? It rarely ever fluctuates and stays at 33 degrees Celsius. The other core temperatures are around 36-37 degrees at rest/idle and do frequently go up when an action is performed on the computer.

Please let me know what is going on with this consistent core 2 temperature and please provide me with a reason why this is happening. Is it something that is beginning to go with this processor? Is there anything that can be done about it to get all four (4) core temperatures in balance.

Thank you!
 

A:One of my Intel Core 2 Quad Processor Cores Has A Temperature Lower Than The Others?

Likely an insignificant problem. Something as simple as air flow within the case, or a variation of fan speed. I cannot see that it is anything to worry about, unless the higher temperature one is consistently over 64C.
I suppose you could interchange the two cores and see what changes result.

A:One of my Intel Core 2 Quad Processor Cores Has A Temperature Lower Than The Others?

Is that a Q6xxx series or a Q9xxx series quad core?

The idle temps aren't particularly accurate as some of the sensors can become 'stuck'. As long as the temps move (and aren't too high) when under load, it's all okay.

On quads, it's not uncommon for an uneven temp to be reported across all the cores.

On my chip, my 2nd core always reported lower than the others and over time my 1,3 and 4th core sensors stopped moving at idle temps. Stuck sensors are more common with the Q9xx series.

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
 

A:CPU temperature

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.

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.

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.

Another option is to get a Laptop cool mat, this will reduce the temperature.

Hope this helps, good luck and post your results.

I have a i7 930 with a Cooler Master Hyper N520 on it and temperatures seem high. What is normal?

A:CPU temperature ?

Those temps are high for idle; you'd expect to see something between the low 30s and low 40s depending on the temp of your room. I'm assuming you are not overclocking.

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
2800MHz

MotherBoard: ECS P4M800-M7 V3.1

Processor Temperature: 122° F
Main Board Temperature: 95° F

If you need more data please let me know.

Thanks,

John
 

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.

If this is a one time thing, check it through your BIOS:

if you need something more, I can't point you in the right direction but someone else might.

I am not crazy! I was somewhere in the settings and saw an actual temperature! Not sure if it was the video card or the CPU, but something was 49 degrees I think. Now I cannot find it again to save my soul!! Anyone know where I was?

A:Where Did I See That Temperature?!

It could have been a s.m.a.r.t. system on one of your hard drives.

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.

Thanks
