Q: What is the optimal motherboard/System temperature?

Hello!
Anybody know what is the optimal motherboard temperature? Currently my System Temperature has C. 35 to C.45 temperature (Speccy software shows). So is it normal or abnormal situation?

Preferred Solution: What is the optimal motherboard/System 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.

Being a new laptop user I am aware they can get hot.... I have mine sitting up on a small cake cooling tray (so that air can circulate under it) which sits on a wooden table. I"m just wondering what is the temperature they should operate at? Mine has never automatically shut down or had any problems, it's just something I would like to be aware of. When I use Speccy to look at it it often goes from 38-50 degrees c. Thanks.
 

A:Laptop optimal operating temperature

Those temps would be fine. There is no such thing as an optimal temp for laptops, each laptop with different specs and different design will operate at different temperatures. What you can do is using the model number of the laptop and the model number of the processor and maybe graphics card look up what the max temps are for those things and make sure it stays well below those.

Having just gone through the process of removing and reattaching my CPU and heat sink, I'm trying to pay more attention to the fan speeds and temperatures (mobo & CPU). I have an Asus P4P800-E Deluxe motherboard with an Intel (socket 478) P4, 3.2 GHz CPU. The motherboard includes a performance monitoring utility, Asus Probe, that watches the chassis and CPU fans as well as the CPU temp. The utility is easily configurable so as to allow the user to set various thresholds, above or below which various alarms will sound.

I'm trying to determine what acceptable performance ranges for each of the thresholds should be. Yes, I could accept the defaults, but I'd like to be more proactive than that. I checked the Asus manual and their website and wasn't able to locate the data I sought. Does anyone have some suggestions or rules of thumb?
 

A:Optimal Temps, Fan Speeds for motherboard?

CPU Temps

Not sure about fan speeds. But with a CPU, my laptop has a minimum temp of around 45 Celsius and a maximum of about 60 Celsius. I would assume that most CPU's run at those temps. You could set your threshold temps based on that?

Hey all,

I've installed a prog called Speccy to check out temperatures while playing games and the thing that concerns me is that my motherboard gets really hot (around 80'C) while the game is on, but when idle it is about 40-45'C...

Is that too hot??

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<

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?

Rosalind
 

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.

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.

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

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?

Motherboard: ASUS P5V800-MX

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.

A:Motherboard Monitor is reporting critical temperature spikes

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.

Okay, I just built my first computer and checked the temperatures through the BIOS to see if I put the heatsink correctly. Anyway, there are two temperatures being shown, the CPU and system. It says my CPU is running at 26C and my system at 52C. So is the CPU temperature the temperature of the processing chip? And where is the system temperature coming from? Right now, I'm just guessing that the CPU temperature IS the proccessor (Athlon 64 3000+) and the system temperature is maybe just the temperature in the case. With that, I'm also assuming I have the CPU heatsink/fan is on properly and my case fans are not (back fans are blowing in and front fans are exhausting, but I just read online that it's supposed to be the other way around). So before I open up the case again, I just want to get confirmation on where the temperature readings are coming from, any suggestions/comments are welcomed. :grinthumb
TIA

Just to confirm that what you've read online is correct, have fans at the front drawing air in and fans at the back blowing air out.

I want to know how much does the psu add to the system temperature? Forgive me this sort of questions but im asking it in behalf of someone else

Posted via Mobile Device
 

A:System temperature

A quality power supply with a high efficiency shouldn't "add" anything to system temperature (it doesn't actually add, as you cannot run without one (of course it could be out of the case)) The power supply basically draws mildly warm ambient air from the case with a fan and pushes it out of the case, so having a quality unit instead of an empty hole in your case could even lower the temps.
If you have a 25$ "xxxW" Super Value Elitecool Golden power supply, then yes, it will probably heat the system up by 2-5 C.

Speedfan does suck, no doubt about that! The Elite 330 is a decent case, but not really considered a gamer's case either. For comparison, try downloading "SIW" (System Information for Windows) from our download page. After the redirect to the home site, you want to download the, "Freestanding English Version", that's the freebie.

Have you routed your IDE cables and such out of the airflow, that can make quite a difference.

In cases with solid covers on the PCI expansion slots, air tends to puddle under the video card. (Antec vents these "knockouts" on their gaming cases. You could simply take a couple of them out).

I didn't want to ask, since I'm sure you've kept you case spotless on the inside.

A:Is 70 degrees C hot for the system temperature?

Max temp for your processor found here is 74.

I don't want to come off sounding rude. But I think Leeky? pointed out a day or 2 ago that nearly everything you ask can be found with a google search fairly quickly.

I also think its a bit foolish to overclock if you 1) don't know safe temps for your processor and 2) don't have anything to help out cooling. Sometimes with a minor overclock you can get by with just stock options, but thats under the general assumption you have at least 1 intake fan and 1 outflow fan.

Your post could almost be taken as you already knew your max temp for the processor and wanted to come here to brag you are 'only' hitting 70 with an OC and no additional cooling.

I have an dell inspiron 6000. I have reinstalled windows xp and wiped my hard drive. I used intsructions I had rec. from this forum last year. As recommended I partition it into a c drive and a d drive
c: 25 gb ntfs healthy
d:49gb health

I don't run many program, just the following which are located on the c: drive
windows
avira
malwarbytes
ccleaner
pcdecrapifer
spywareblaster

itunes
picasa

I have an external 160gb hard drive that I store my music and pictures on which leaves the d: drive empty. My question is , does this configuration give me the best performance? or should I get rid of the d drive? or should I move all programs other than windows to the d drive.

I mainly use my computer for internet, email, picture and music storage.

A:optimal performance

I guess I have to ask...just what is meant by "optimal performance"?

As for getting rid of the D: partition...I see no improvement coming from such. The result would be a larger C: partition (assuming that you will merge the two) or unallocated space. Neither of those would do anything positive for the system, in fact...increasing the C: partition's size would just make it take longer to do basic maintence operations (chkdsk and defrag) with no positive impact.

I have always thought that...moving programs to a separate partition other than the C: partition...is a bill of goods which have been sold to some users. The default install for most/if not all programs...is on the C: partition, along with Windows. It seems to me that the system...has to operate slightly better if the programs are where the O/S expects them to be...but I've been wrong in my thinking before .

Best advice I can give about such: Take a quick survey (of sources that have credibility) using Google and see what they have to say about such things. "Credible sources" are not defined by opinions voiced by those (like me) with nothing but the willingness to express their thoughts, whether such have substance or not .

Ok. So I just recently got a new Graphics card its a Sapphire Radeon HD 4670. I popped it in, downloaded the software, and my WoW gameplay runs so much better then before. never below 55, and gets up to 65 FPS on Ultra Graphics.(shadowing turned off) However, much of the game DOES look better, things like my character, and my action bars/abilites seem to be low quality, graphic wise. Maybe I'm expecting more, but I thought the graphic quality would look better.

I was playing on my friends computer. His in game graphics were set lowered than mine, and the graphics looked alot better. (i dont know anything about his computer other than his monitor is a Sony) Im currently using an LG Flatron W2040T Monitor.

So let me know if you know what my "problem" could be.

Thanks

Originally I was planning to install OS +Programs in one partition and personal data in the second . I am now wondering whether it make any sense at all to install the OS in one partition , programs in second and personal data in a third ? Will this slow down the computer or make the disk work harder ? tks

A:optimal partition win 7 pro

Programs should be on same partition for several reasons.

Data can safely (and wisely) be placed on a separate partition.

I want to upgrade my RAM in my PC, and I was wondering if someone could recommend an upgrade for my setup.
My Processor is a Sempron 3400+ (2 GHz, 64-bit, Data Bus Speed 800 MHz , L2 cache 256 KB)
My Current RAM is 512 MB of DDR SDRAM, Speed: 400 MHz, PC3200, DIMM 184-pin

Should I stick with PC3200, or can/should i run something faster with my processor (Or do i need to know motherboard specs too)? Also, what brand has the best price-to-quality ratio?

Any comments/recommendations are appreciated

Hello Tech Support Guy,

I am preparing to connect the components to my newly laid network and would prefer to have connections for optimum throughput. The renovated space has 3 rooms and a Switch closet. Each room has a dual Ethernet wall jack (2-ports). My components are as follows:

Room 1:
incoming DSL Router (has 4 Lan ports) is now connected to PC#1 (using 1 of 2 onboard NICS).
Wall jack with 2 hardwired LAN ports (both hardwires run to Remote Switch Closet).

Room 2:
PC#2 with 2 onboard NICS.
Wall jack with 2 hardwired LAN ports (both hardwires run to Remote Switch Closet).

Remote Switch Closet: 8-Port Netgear Switch, incoming hardwired cable runs (all less than 40ft) into PatchPanel from Room 1 (2x Cat7), Room 2 (2x Cat7), Room 3 (2x Cat 7) (only selected/employed cable runs will be patched from Panel into 8-port Netgear Switch).

My current setup is Room 1 DSL Router is connected to PC#1 with straight cable, no issues with DSL connection. I want to employ PC#2 in Room 2. I want to see any other connected PCs/devices that are connected to any LAN port (via selected hardwired cable runs from Patchpanel patched into Netgear Switch).

My questions are how to optimize my use of PC#1 and connect the DSL Router to the network?
DSL Router (using 1 of its 4 LAN ports) > 1 of 2 Wall-jack LAN ports > remote Netgear Switch (40ft) and then come back from the switch (40ft) > the 2nd available LAN wall-jack port > PC#1 (using 1 of 2 onboard Lan ports), or,

Should I ... Read more
