Preferred Solution: CPU Temperature

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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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.

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?

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.

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.

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

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 ?

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.

I recently bought a Intel Core i7-8700K CPU, but I'm having some issues with the temperature

It has been running smoothly the past week and I have encountered no problems at all, but the temperature readings are ridiculously high

Idle its around 43C, but the moment I turn on some videogame (Like League of Legends) it bolts up to 90-100C really quickly. Isn't that unusually high for a game that isn't that hard to run?

Anyways, I use a program called HWMonitor to monitor the CPU temperature.
After doing some digging I found out that the "core temperatures" are at the previously stated values, but there is also a "surface temperature" that stays at 32-37C when I boot games. Which one is the correct one to follow?

I can also add that the cooling fan is quite old and runs at around 1000rpm, and I don't have any thermal paste/grease etc applied.

I have already ordered a new fan+thermal paste and try to keep my CPU loads to a minimum while I wait for the package

But I suppose that my main question is above all "Why does the CPU temperature go up so much when its under low load?"

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.

I have the Asus pc-probe and it shows that my CPU is at 41 - 42c and the mobo is at 41c. Is this too hot? What should the temperature be?

I haven't used the probe app for quite some time and I seem to remember it used to be just under 40. Today for the first time ever my computer suddenly rebooted itself - twice. maybe just a fluke but the first thing I thought of is the temp so I took a look at the probe. 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.

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!

Hi I just built a computer for my friend.

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 FULL LOAD.. no higher than 36 C

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.

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.

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

Hope this helps, good luck and post your results.

Hey
I have a Acer Aspire 5720 laptop which for the last few months has been overheating - a lot, if I try and burn a DVD for example it's out halfway through. Just checked the temperature of the CPU now - im running Win 7 Pro x86 , Avast AV Free, Chrome, MSN and itunes. The temp changes constantly but its usually above 70 degrees - that can't be normal .. can it?

^^ That's with a USB Cooling thingy underneath but to be fair its not very trustworthy, its noisy and seems to decide itself whether or not it wants to turn on. also HDD is 43 degrees?
Any help appreciated thanks

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

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 installed the Motherboard monitor 5, and it reads my case temp = 45deg, chipset = 40deg, CPU = 60deg. u reckon my CPU temp is too high? how to lower it? currently i only have 1 fan at the rear n a big fan facing down from the PSU. u guys reckon i should get a new casing(P180 antec) or get a cooler (Thermaltake Big Thypoon)??

Is there anyway to get the temperature of the GPU on my video card? I have a GeForce 6600 256MB 16x PCI express card.
 

A:GPU temperature

If it has a temp sensor it should show up in the nvidia control panel. If not you could try everest home edition. It has been discontinued but you can still get it at majorgeeks.com I think.
