Pentium D 830 temperature... too high??

Q: Pentium D 830 temperature... too high??

I read a similar thread and saw some varied responses.
I just got a new motherboard, processor, etc...

Right now, idle, my CPU temp is 61 C degrees+

Does this seem high to anyone? I am not overclocking at all. I'm using the standard heat sink and fan that came with the processor. I applied Arctic whatsit 5 compound and that didn't seem to help any.

Anyone else running this processor? What's your idle temp?
asus p5wd2 premium motherboard
pentium d 830 (800 FSB, 3.0 Gig)
1 gig DDR2 Corsair Twin 2x Ram
GeForce 7800GTX
Enermax 535W PCI Express 2 PCU

Preferred Solution: Pentium D 830 temperature... too high??

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.

The short:
I've paired a D 920 with the Intel 945GPM board (mATX) in my first HTPC project. The chassis is an nMediaPC 200, which is little cramped, but not so bad - there's lots of ventilation slots on the top, sides, back exhaust, etc. but I am concerned it's a little (a lot?) too hot for my liking.

The long:
The problem in trying to evaluate what to do/improve/replace - I don't know what temp monitor is actually accurate--
In Intel's Utlity "Hardware Monitor" (Windows XP MCE 05) it reads as this (at idle):
"Processor Zone Temp" 50C
"System Zone 1" 42C
"System Zone 2" 42C
"Processor Fan" 2550 RPM
Which is all "in the green" - But the BIOS sings a slightly different story (at idle/sitting in BIOS):
"Processor Temp" 63C
"Internal Temp" 47C
"Remote Temp" 45C
"Processor Fan" 2640 RPM

Everything is about 2-4C cooler when the top/cover is removed - so I'm not TOO worried about overall case ventilation. (I let things idle for about 10 minutes in each state before writing down readings)

To confuse matters more, this chassis comes with a front LCD panel with 2 temps sensors, but they are both in Farenheit and when converted come out 10-20 degrees cooler than both Windows and BIOS temp readings above...
I've tried the attached the "CPU" sensor in two places, 1st shoved as far into the fins on HS as possible, and... Read more

A:Pentium D940 Temperature???

I have had this happen to me a couple of times. That model cpu has had issues with heat before. I would say to call your computers make (I.e Dell, Sony) and ask them as well. I think this is a normal temp for it though.

Hi. I am trying to find out what an average temperature for a Intel Pentium 4 Processor should be. According to Everest Pro My Motherboard (Intel Bonanza) 35?C (95?F) and the CPU 45 ?C (113 ?F), but when I encode video or run a scan my CPU goes to about 52?C (125?F) . I am not sure if this is normal or not. Any info will be appreciated?

Read Before Asking "Is This Too Hot?"

I wouldn't worry about temperature until it causes instability or other problems.

That said, I seem to be the only one who thinks it's ok to run CPUs at 80C / 176F.

i have a couple of questions. i have an asus p5rd1-v mobo and a pentium 4 - 2.66 cpu installed with fan. the mobo has a temperature and fan speed monitor installed. the cpu temperature shows 113 degrees f. and the system temperature (inside case showls about 80 f). someone told me that it is too hot. so, i installed another fan and now the stable temperature is about 109 degrees f. is this ok? or is it too hot?
my second question:
how can i overclock my cpu on the mobo setup? when i go there, it is grayed out. or maybe set to automatic. the manual says it's do-able, but i haven't figured it out yet. any ideas?

A:proper temperature for pentium 4 - 2.66 ghz?

I'm used to seeing the temps in C but that doesn't sound hot at all. My PC has a 3.0GHz P4 that idles at around 45C and maxes out at 60C under load.

OC settings would be in the BIOS, you may need to switch the auto configuration to manual. It should be covererd in the documentation.

Until yesterday, my CPU was the Intel E6850. I had the stock cooler installed with some MX2 thermal compound. Idle temp was 25C and full load was somewhere around 40C. So yesterday, I finally received my Q9650 and installed it right away. I cleaned the MX2 off and changed it to some MX4. I put the stock cooler back on and everything worked fine. I then checked the sensors, and my idle temp was now 50C. I tried to stress it a bit on Crysis, and it got up to 79C. I changed the cooler for this one and added some thermal paste. Same temps. I read that using too much thermal paste isn't good, so I took some off. Same temps. I'm not sure what to do. Are quad core CPUs always hotter?
Thanks for your help.

Ok, I just bought a new CPU Fan, the Zalman Fatal1ty CPU cooler.'

I installed it correctly (checked this many times). But the temperature is 40c(!!) degrees IDLE! and when load, it is at 55c degrees!

I didnt apply Thermal paste though , how many degrees can it be reduced if i apply Artic Silver 5?

A:Help - High CPU Temperature.

Hello again,
You must apply thermal paste, I'm suprised your temps are that low without it. If you do use Artic Silver you can expect your temps to drop 10C maybe more. So everything is going ok with your new build I take it?

My TMPIN0 and TMPIN1 is reading 127 degrees F. TMPIN2 is 66 F, GPU Core is 125 F, and Assembly temp is 93 F. What's wrong? I am using CPUID's HW Monitor to get my readings. I have also confirmed the temperatures with Speedfan. I've read all the notes and instructions from Speedfan and the notes say not to worry and the notes say to exclude these from the monitoring program. Is this correct or am I looking at a potential problem. The motherboard is a Biostar P4M900-M4 if this helps. Sorry to appear so dumb and thanks in advance for the education I will receive. jberd99usa.

A:Temperature is high.

When you post temperatures please post them in celsius since computer specs are given in celsius. From the temperatures you posted I don't see anything I would consider a high temperature.

Also, temperature monitoring software is nortoriously inaccurate on some motherboards.

So I have Pentium 4 3ghz that i bought few days ago and everything works fine except that temperatures are a bit weird. I start windows, check the temp and it's alerady on 56C and when working for a while, playing games and stuff it gets to 65-67 but never more. So i'm not sure are those temps bad for my cpu? I have put cooling paste, pc was cleaned a week ago, fan works at 3700+ RPM. Could the problem be that the case on left side is completely closed?

A:Is my CPU temperature too high?

Do you know if this particular 3.0 is a Prescott core or a Northwood core? Going from memory, I think the Prescotts ran hotter?

Are you using the stock Intel cooler? Not overclocked?

I wouldn't think the left side being closed is a major factor.

What do you use as an exhaust fan (size, brand, speed)?

What case?

I've noticed that in my Asus N82JV the fan works a lot of time.

So i've installed Speed fan and this is the info I get after 5 min using the computer.

Everything is burning out...

What cold be the problem and how to solve this issue?


A:CPU high temperature

Most times the cause is dirt in the box or bad connection of the fan on the CPU (bad paste or bad seating). Start by blowing out the dirt with compressed air - cans are available at Home Depot, etc.

Getting to the CPU may require professional help. Work on a laptop is not obvious.

A:[HELP]CPU Temperature TOO HIGH

You should not get those temperatures, especially when your CPU is running at default clock rate. Try to re-paste the cpu heat spreader and reattach the heatsink securely. Also try to remove dust particles from your heatsink and fan. This should fix your overheating issues.

Dear All,

My CPU temperature is 80C and high. From the BIOS itself, i could see this temperature. I am using GIGABYTE P55A-UD3R motherboard with Core I5-Lynnfield processor. It was working well before 6 months. Suddenly, the temperature became very high and i am not able to do anything. Used Core-Temp software to check for the CPU temperature. It is 77C and not dropping down. Bought a new processor fan and a cabinet case with three fans to support ventilation. But, whenever i start any application, CPU load shoots to 100% and temperature is getting increased. Changed and replaced my motherboard(same) and graphics card too before finding this problem. Applied thermal compound between the processor and heat sink. Do not know what is the exact issue that keeps my CPU always run at high temperature.

What do you mean your computer cuts out? Cuts out doesn't mean anything.
From looking at the temps I don't think system fan is reading them right either. Check the temps in the system BIOS. Gigabtye should also have some mobo tools allow you to keep tabs ont he system as well you should try thoses as well.

I have a PC which I use only for MS Flight Simulator (specs below): I have just added a CPU temp gauge (via CoreTemp) to the desktop and am a bit alarmed at the information it is giving. The PC came with the i7-950 pre-overclocked to 3.8 GHz (and I wouldn't dream of losing this overclocking - Flightsim runs as smooth as silk). I have never had any problems with sudden shutdowns in the two years I have had the PC...

Temperatures at startup show around 50-60degs. When running Flight Simulator they are between 70 and 95 degs, just under the TJMax, but nevbertheless...

The PC was shipped recently from where I was working, in Thailand, to the UK, but I have checked inside the case that the fans are OK and that the big Fenrir cooler on the CPU is clipped in place properly: all fans seem to be turning just fine. No visible dust at all, on vents or fans. Q-Fan is enabled in the BIOS and the fans do vary in speed as I use the PC. They certainly seem to be whirring away (max I imagine) as Flightsim rruns. (What should the CPU fan speed be? The BIOS showed me around 2500rpm I think).

What would folks expect the core temperatures to be for this CPU at 3.8GHz when the PC is at idle? I did try an experiment yesterday which makes me think that the figures showing may be wrong. I put the PC onto Standby (Sleep) last night: everything shut down OK. This morning I started the PC up from its sleep mode - takes about two or three seconds, literally.

is there anyway i can raise the speed and therefore drop the temp of my cpu ?

edit: in game it reads at 66 degrees

Any help would be great

A:Cpu temperature really high ? please help =(

I don't know if 1100 is the max rpm of that fan or not. Does it run at a constant 1100 or does it run slower when you are not gaming? You might be able to get more info from the Arctic Cooling web site.

Your other choices would be to keep the cooler, but replace the fan (if you can find another that fits) or to get another cooler/fan combination.

39 or 40 is a good idle temp.

So, I have a really old computer that uses Intel Tappen D945GTP mobo and Intel Celeron D 345J. I'm getting a new one soon, but until i have enough money, I must make this one survive as long as possible. Anyway, my problem is that I was running Everest Ultimate edition 5ish and it says that the temperature of my cpu is 81 C. This was after half an hour just reading stuff online. After this i decided to try some simple flash games (that go extremely slow on my computer) and the temperature jumped to 90 C. should i be worried or is Everest giving me wrong answers? Also, core and realtemp tell me that my processor isn't supported, which is obvious because of how old my computer is.

So today i did a fresh OS install when finishing everything started up Steam and lunched GTAV,Steam started installing "first time" _CommonRedist which include directx and vcredist,suddenly during that installation i heard the fan noise go loud like never before,toke a look at Speccy and the CPU's temp was at 85c-88c,it never came this high,it reaches max 71c when playing GTAV+Firefox+Jetaudio,idle is 30ish.
Have Corsair Hydro H80i for cooler,so far this is what i did:
1-Applied new thermal paste,temps got just a bit lower (it did nothing).
2-Removed the H80i and used stock cooler with new thermal paste,temp idle 52c-56c
3-Installed AVAST,found nothing.
What's going on ? is the H80i broke ? could it be a virus ?
Are the idle and max temps with the stock cooler normal:
Idle 52c-56c
Gaming (GTAV+Firefox) 74c-78c (GPU 55c,MB 28c) ?

A:Very high sudden CPU temperature

If you stock cooler keep the temps lower than the H80 I can think of two things.

1. Deffective H80
2. The H80 is not installed correctly.

Nvidia Quadro FX 3400/4400 118c (244F)!!!

Any suggestions?

A:Video temperature too high?

Are you Overclocking?
Did you check the card for dust accumulation in the card's Heatsink, ect?
Is your case well-ventilated?
Are the cables in your case managed or unmanaged? (cable-management)

My Athlon 64 X2 dual core processor 6000+ used to stay between 35c-45c at the most, now it runs between 72c and 82c is there any reason this is happening and should I be seriuosly concerned? also should I just get another cpu or cooler? All solutions excepted.

A:CPU temperature running high?

I'd take a look at your current cooler and see if it may have busted. You may have a cracked heat pipe or something.

If thermal paste is applied incorrectly, air bubbles can form between the heat sink and CPU and over time can push the paste from out between those two devices.

So today i did a fresh OS install when finishing everything started up Steam and lunched GTAV,Steam started installing "first time" _CommonRedist which include directx and vcredist,suddenly during that installation i heard the fan noise go loud like never before,toke a look at Speccy and the CPU's temp was at 85c-88c,it never came this high,it reaches max 71c when playing GTAV+Firefox+Jetaudio,idle is 30ish.
Have Corsair Hydro H80i for cooler,so far this is what i did:
1-Applied new thermal paste,temps got just a bit lower (it did nothing).
2-Removed the H80i and used stock cooler with new thermal paste,temp idle 52c-56c
3-Installed AVAST,found nothing.
What's going on ? is the H80i broke ? could it be a virus ?
Are the idle and max temps with the stock cooler normal:
Idle 52c-56c
Gaming (GTAV+Firefox) 74c-78c (GPU 55c,MB 28c) ?

Hi, I have a harddisk control program HDD Control2 (Guard) running on my laptop. Today at startup 9:30am I got the message: Temperature 19 ?C Good - this hard drive is obviously cooled very well.
Now at 20:15 I got the message: Temperature 51?C Bad - You should think about cooling you hard drive better.
Further: Health 100%
Performance 100%
Sometimes, at heavy load,I think, I get even the treshold alarm of 52 ?C together with a noisy audible signal and an even more severe warning message. Then I switch the pc to standby for a while.

The computer works good and fast always until now (hardware). Do I really have to undertake some protective measures? Internal cleaning of the computer and cpu-fan and/or getting some kind of so called laptop cooler stand. I wonder if this is really so critical, I have the computer since 2009 and the guard is installed only a couple of month and now I switched off the guard option, so I get no alarms any more.

Hello cleaning your computer is important I live in Arizona and clean mine every 60 days by vacuming all the dust and dirt. I remove my fans and vacume under them and cleaning all around my fans etc. always a good practice, to much dust and dirt on you fans can lead to overheating...

I have Lenovo Y50-70 (59441908) / GTX 860M / 8GB RAM / WINDOWS 10(Upgraded)Which i bought 5 months ago... and from past 2-3 months , i am suffering from tempratures as bad as 90c-100c.. while gaming.. whatever game i play whether it is Dota 2, Shadow of Mordor , TF2 , CSGO etc....... i dont know what the reason behind this ... i have updated BIOS , tried many stuffs.. still no decrease in the temperature while gaming.. i am idling at around 52-53c.. , even while normal usage as high as 54c-62cIn the early 2 months i hardly reached 82-85c while gaming MOBO/CPU TEMPGPU TEMP  

A:Lenovo Y50-70 High Temperature

Yeah thats quite high, even idle temps.
Few reasons for high temps -
1) Humid/High ambient temp (Ideally should be less than 25 celsius)
2) Improper cooling due to usage. You should not use the laptop on your lap/bed. Ideal way is to use it on a desk with the bottom raised for proper ventilation.
3) Bad thermal paste job.
What you can try -
1) Keep the laptop raised from the surface while gaming.
2) Use air conditioning -- GOOD cooling pad
3) Use Intel XTU to reduce the CPU max clocks and voltage to prevent overheating.

Let me know how much are CPU and GPU temps after these steps.

i have an asus 5670 1gb graphic card its idle temperature is at 45' c i found that the idle temp should be at 38' c so i increased the fan speed using asus smartdoctor from 1500 rpm to 2200 rpm but the temp is still at 45c what should i do? should i increase the fan speed even more? in the auto fan control mode even at 60'c the fan's rpm is 1500 is it normal? my friend's nvidia graphic card got fried couple of days ago so i'm worried about mine..

A:5670's high temperature..

Not worry about it. 45?C is fine for idle, it's load temps you need to worry about. You also have to remember that ambient temperature and airflow through the case also have a factor in what the temps are

A:Very high sudden CPU temperature

If you stock cooler keep the temps lower than the H80 I can think of two things.

1. Deffective H80
2. The H80 is not installed correctly.

I'm a newbie to overclocking, and i have been reading some guides on how to do it, and i finally decided to give it a shot. I did everything correctly, i assume, but the temperature is way too high for the H80i.

I have overclocked it to [email protected] GHz, with an offset voltage of + 0.025 CPU pll voltage of 1.7 and pch 0.9v.
50% LLC, and VRM frequency manually set to 350.

It doesn't BSOD, however the temps are way too high. In prime95, it starts with 80 and ends up sitting at 90. (i didn't leave it on for a long time since i didn't like the temps.)

Max vcore voltage was 1.352, but even with this voltage, i think that it should run on 70C max.

Any clues on why it's so hot? I have re-seated everything and re-applied the thermal paste, but so far no luck.

A:High temperature while Oc'ing with H80i

Could be your H80i (too weak) or you have a bad airflow in your case.

Hi All, I'm getting high temperature readings on my 2560p on idle, not really running anything and CPU use is below 20%. I checked the fan, cleaned it and that didn't seem to make any difference. Temperature has been spiking as high as 92 C at minimal use.

I am using arctic silver 5 thermal paste. CPU is 60+ C as soon as I turn it on!!!

I made sure the application was very thin. I cleaned it and reapplied the paste a second time, the application is fine yet it is 64 C in the bios as soon as starting it up. System temperature reading 32 and PWM (what is this?) 45 C

Heatsink is not dirty or anything, and is mounted properly. Fan is spinning fine around 2800RPM.

When I cleaned the cpu for reapplication, both times I used rubbing alcohol 60%. I know the best is high purity 90+ %, but this was all that was around. Could using this lower purity rubbing alochol really make a 20-30 C difference in Cpu temperature!!!???

Why is it so hot!!!?

OK so I have a overheating issue with the Qosmio G30-204. It seems that during suspend the CPU temperature goes high, I have used SpeedFan to confirm this. eg 70+ Degrees C after 5 mins. 90+ degrees if left for longer periods!

I find it very frustrating to say the least. This unit has hardly been used. I hadn't even touched it in almost two years as the original power supply stopped working. The original power supply casing split as was a serious risk to my health let alone the damage would could have been done to the machine! How can Toshiba create a product which unless I upgraded the BIOS would fry the GPU!

Needless to say I did this pretty much as soon as I had the unit. What can be done to rectify this issue? If anything? This makes me not want / trust buying another Toshiba product.

I look forward to hearing from support ;)

A:Qosmio G30-204 - CPU temperature goes high

Sounds like there is dust in the heatsink. Have you tried removing the dust by spraying Compressed Air through the vent?

Also ensure you have the later nVidia driver installed supplied on the Toshiba website. If you use other sourced drivers, it may cause problems.

I just downloaded and used a program called SANDRA and under Mainboard Information it said the "Mainboard temperature is too high". The board temperature is 57 C/ 134.6 F and it says anything over 50 C is too high. What should I do? I'm a computer idiot, so any recommendations would be appreciated. I'm not sure what this means.
