CPU Temperature

Q: CPU Temperature

Firstly, I'm not an overclocker.
I am running an XP 1800+ and have a TT Volcano 7+ HSF.
The fan has 3 speeds. I love running it on low as it's very quiet. But the CPU temp. is around 50-55C if I do that. Is this a safe temp? Many thanks.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

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!

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!

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?

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.

Thanks for reading and, maybe, answering...

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.

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:

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.

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.

I'm not overclocking or anything. I just dont know what is normal.
 

A:What is the Right Temperature?

Temps are decent in the 35-50 range. If you stress it out a little and then it blows and reboots after a heat up period and you're pushing through the 60s for extended periods, then you have a possible overheating problem.

If you have speed step fans they should always run at minimum speed at idle and rarely speed up with normal use and sometimes to often speed up under continual high load.

hi simpod, make sure the air and fan vents are not blocked, if possible use a can of compressed air to blow into the vents and remove any accumalated dust ,do a google search for "speedfan" and install that it will help to control the temps a bit better

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!!!

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.

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?

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.

Uh. Help? every time I look at my PC health status, the CPU temperature has raised. Just now, it was at 201 degrees F. -Any idea on how to lower the temperature?
 

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.
