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?

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,

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...

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.

Earlier my programs including the same chess program was working very fast.

At idle condition, core temperatures are 50 - 55 degree celcius (129 - 131 F)

And at full load, core temperatures are 70-73 degree celicus !!

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.

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?

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.

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E8400 @ 3.00GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 23 Stepping 6

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.

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.

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.

put in a 333mhz AMD XP 3000+ and pc2700 512mb memory which i synchronized to a 1:1 ratio (cpu to memory).

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,

i coulldn't believe the results on this thing!

CPU TEMP IDLE.... 27 C
CPU TEMP FULL LOAD.. no higher than 36 C

I used a COOLJAG heatsink with a 60mm fan blowing at 4400 RPM, copper base, and arctic silver 5 thermal paste.
I am jealous of my friends computer because my computer is usually around CPU TEMP 47 or 48 C, and thats on IDLE! reaches about 56C full load. It is not using arctic silver 5, but it is using some kind of thermal paste, so I have no idea why its so much hotter than the other one. Mine has an 80mm fan that blows 2200RPM, i just dont see how my friends that i built is SO MUCH cooler.

It doesn't even have a great power supply either, at least I don't think so, its a 400W RION power supply, while mine is RAIDMAX 350 watt ( i know raidmax i... Read more

A:cpu temperature - how did i get it so low!?

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.

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.

Hi.

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??

Thanks

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 have a NVIDIA 6200 LE. My case has 2 120mm fans and one 80mm. I am using stock cpu fan. Everest shows that my gpu temperature is 60C/140C.
Is that normal? Any tips.
I haven't have a problem yet. it has been 3 days since I build this computer.

I havent overclocked anything. My CPU temperature is 33C and harddrive 81C.
I dont play any games.
Please help.
 

A:GPU temperature

Video cards run hotter,so that is still in the normal range.
CPU is good.
Your hard drive seems to be a bit hot.

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.

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.
