Q: about cpu temperature...

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...

Preferred Solution: about 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.)

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?

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?

A:Core temperature or CPU temperature?

Thanks on forehand for any reply

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.

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

MotherBoard: ECS P4M800-M7 V3.1

Processor Temperature: 122° F
Main Board Temperature: 95° F

If you need more data please let me know.



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 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:

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??

Please also tells me how can I get solutions to any heat problem?

A:Is this Temperature enough for CPU?

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.

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.

Hi all, i've got a question and here is...
After my motherboard has been repair (changed three regulators), it is very unstable when i'm running Win ME.
When i run program such as IE, outlook express, ACDsee...etc and others process of some s/w installation.. I mostly got an error message.. "the xxx.exe cause an error on xxxxx.dll(sometimes kernel.dll and others..) and going to be terminate"
then program was closed.

i dunno why these happened. But this Win ME is newly implemented. And when i use a program named Hardware monitor, it shows the MB(it should be motherboard) temp. is around 35 degree, and the CPU temp. is around 65 degree, the Power temp(it should be the power supply??). is around 96 degree~~~

so i want to know such temperatures are normal/usual??
and is that cause thw WinMe become unstable?

Moreover, i implemented a LAN card also. It is Surecom(ep320xr). Is it possible that the WinME unstable is cause by the IRQ interference between the LAN card and other hardware?? (although the device manager didnt say so...)

Thank you~

and here is my PC configuration:
AMD K6-2 400mHz (no overclocking)
192mb ram
2themax MVP3E-M motherboard
IBM 30G hard disk
Surecome ep320xr 10M/100M Lan card

A:CPU, MB temperature

The motherboard temp is fine.
I have no idea on power supply temp but 96 degrees c would definitely have me worried.
The cpu temp is too high.

Check that your cpu fan is attached properly or better yet reattach it using some thermal compound.
Is your power supply fan working

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.

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'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.

Hi I just built a computer for my friend.

I used a micro ATX motherboard (MSI K72NMG), which by the way is one of the best motherboards ive ever used.

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

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.

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.

You can rest easy my friend, those temps are excellent. Another factor you may want to look at is the temps under load or while doing a task that places stress on the computer. However, with your current temps, would guess that will be O.K. also.
