Motherboard Max Temperature

Q: Motherboard Max Temperature

I spoke to asus today Tech Support.
They say that it can be up to 85 C to be OK.
If the Probe2 reading or bios gives an error,ignore it.
I'm about 50 C,no problems.

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.)

That 50c is very high for mobo chipset, hows your case cooling, make shure of proper circulation. intake and exhaust fans. 50c for mobo is tad too high, try to hit 40's at least, by rearranging fans or changing some thang. GL<

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?

Two PCs running at around 35/37 degC and CPU fan running around 800 to 1900rpm. The third PC which is around 3 years old runs at 45 degC on the CPU and 54degC on the mobo and the CPU fan is running at up to 3000rpm, which would explain why it is noisy. Is this too high? The heatsink is dusty, but I've not bucked up courage to remove it and clean it yet. Local guy suggested vacuuming it I've got some thermal paste but no air yet. Should I be looking at changing the heatsink and fan and adding a bigger case fan to cool things down?

A:CPU/Motherboard temperature

Blow the dust out with canned air. 3-5$ a can. (please do it outside ) Vacuuming works but it's risky. I do it myself, but you can potentially permanently damage the whole system, so it's not recommended. 45 is not extremely high, the CPU will work at 60-70 just fine, but it's not healthy. Don't spend money to bring the temps down, after you undust it, it should be running at low enough temperatures.

If the fan keeps running at high speeds and annoys you, you might want to consider replacing it, or using BIOS settings to keep the speed at reasonable levels. Post your system model or motherboard/CPU model if you want advice on that side of this.

Hey all,

Hi,

I am currently monitoring my motherboards temperature.

My setup uses standard fans to keep it cool. I have intentions to change this in the future but not right now.

The most common figures I see is usually between 39C - 49C.

As I know nothing about hardware I was wondering if there is a recommended temperature to turn the computer off. For example I would like to know what temperature isn't safe or is considered "too high". If needed I can provide specifications.

I have an old gfxcel pcchips 757 motherboard with celeron 433mhz . It used to run at around 55 degrees centigrade and now suddenly I found the temperature at 73 degrees. Then I checked the fan and it showd jerky movements and looked slow and then I changed the fan. But even after changing the fan the motherboard temperature has not fallen and it stays at 73 or 74 for most of the time. ( cpu temp is not high and usually it is below 35 C)
I check these temperature readings from aida 32.
I will be very thankful if anyone can tell me about the right temp of this motherboard and if it is safe to keep working at this temp.
I asked a techie about it and he said that it was okay and that I should not worry about it and keep working at these high temps and close the computer only if the computer started hanging. But I am not satisfied and ask for your opinion . thanks in advance.

When booting the cold PC the MB temperature reads about 8 degrees C above the room temperature!
The CPU temperature at boot up is at about room temperature as one would expect.

During normal operation (room about 25 C) the MB temperature rises to 45 C or higher; whilst the CPU temp reading is only about 30 C. In other words the CPU temp is consistently way below the MB temp.

Can I believe any of the readings?
What do you experts think about this?
What is a critical temp for the MB?
Do I need to worry?

Ok, this is very strange. I have installed MBM 5 on my newest computer, and the temps look great idle, as well as full load playing games. But the last 2 days it seems there are temperature spikes or MBM reporting incorrectly.
I have come home from work to find that the proc temp reached above my set limit of 70C, and the pop up box asks whether or not I want to ignore it or turn off computer.
Well when I see that screen it is reporting good temps, around 50C.

So, is this a problem with MBM, or am I having probs with my machine?

This is the error recorded in the log.

Even 50 deg. is high. Why don't you install CPU-idle? Get version 6.0b or version 7 Extreme.
My not OC'd Athlon 1900 never goes over 32 deg, using the Zalman Flower CNPS6000-Cu (fan at 2200 rpm) and CPU-idle 6.0b.

Could it be possible that your CPU-cooler is not completely tight onto the CPU? After all, it hangs on its side all the time.

I could use some creative customer service here. My M3800 shipped with the known power-on motherboard defect. It was replaced at no charge, which was very nice. However, the replacement (2nd motherboard!) is now having the same intermittent dead / no power problem.
To get the computer running, I have to remove the case (12 screws) and un-plug the internal battery to 're-set' the electrical fault. After I put it back together, the computer starts normally. This is not very convenient, especially when meeting with new clients.
The problem is that I am being told I am outside the 3-month repair warranty. I think this stinks! It's a known issue and I would like someone at Dell to step up make my expensive computer work normally all of he time.

I have recently become aware that high CPU temperatures can cause crashes.

My CPU is currently running at 62 C. Is this normal or hot? Does it vary according to motherboard? Mine is an MSI K7N2 IL2.
 

A:CPU temperature

It all depends which processor your running as Athlons run a lot warmer than Intels this said its on the high side for the former too.I would investigate the airflow within your case and see if the case fans are working and if they are not fitted you could invest in a rear and/or front case fan to improve temps.
Moving it off the floor,away from radiators,out of closed cabinets and clearing out any dust bunnies from the fans and heatsink will help too.

I just figured that my HDDs - IBM 40GB and Maxtor (written IBM here as well, sorry) 80GB 2mb - run at around 50C each. I heard that the limit is around 45C. 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 61C 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.

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 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.

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?

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 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

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

Warm ambient, laptop = not all that surprising.

Make sure the exhaust vent isn't blocked. Alternatively you can buy a cooling pad.

my first post in iver a month... i was moving, and then i was extremely busy, so, now hopefully i shall return to my usual self... 20 posts daily

heard there was a crash here at TSG?

any wayz, my amd athlon XP is hot: 50C idle and 55C peak usage. im using a coolermaster zx26.8 (5500rpm), 2 case fans, and silicon based thermal interface compound.

room temperature is 15C.

i have ordered arctic silver 5. how many degrees centigrade drop will i notice?

Hello folks.

Can anyone give me an idea as to what a 'healthy'
temperature is for a 1.2Ghz Athlon 'Thunderbird' (200fsb) should be?

I've just fitted one to my second system, and dont want the thing to fry !

Thanks

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!!!
