Motherboard Temperature Recommendations....

Q: Motherboard Temperature Recommendations....


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.

Any help is great


Preferred Solution: Motherboard Temperature Recommendations....

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.)

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 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.


A:Motherboard Max Temperature

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<

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??

I'll attach a snapshot so someone with that program can see what are my PC specs..

Cheers guys and thanks for the help

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 Guys,

I'm going to build a new system for my nephew primarily consisting of a AMD XP1700 processor and 256 PC2100 DDR memory. This is my first attempt at building an AMD rig so I'm a bit unsure which motherboard to get. He uses it for games, graphics work and occasional music. I have an Abit myself in my Pentium rig and I think it's pretty good so I thought about getting one of those but, as to which one, I really don't know. Sometimes there's just too much choice So, I would really appreciate it if I could have any recommendations regarding which model would be a good one for his purposes.

Many thanks.

Hi All,

I've decided to upgrade my system from a PIII to a P4 (I don?t want an AMD so no telling me how I?m losing out).

My budget will be +-R3500(including vat) max for processor, memory (if new board requires DDR) and the motherboard.
I?m going to get a P4 2.4GHz 533Mhz FSB (R1499 ex vat from local vender) and it seems that most of the new boards use DDR memory so I?ll get 512 MB DDR (266 FSB Module 184-pin, R 479 ex vat from local vender).

What I?m asking for is recommendations for a motherboard to use with the above components. It seems that I?ll have about R1245 over just for the board.
I don?t require on-board sound nor on-board display card.

Many thx in adv

I am going to upgrade in a few months, and I was wondering what motherboard to look at. I am planning on getting an e6850 or q6600 processor, I have an 8600 GT (PCI-E), and would like to use at least PC2 6400 ram. My first question is whether or not my graphics card will bottleneck either of those cpu's. If so, would it be more worth it for me to get an SLI-capable board, and another 8600 GT, or buy a better card (about $250 budget). I would like to spend at most around $150 for the motherboard. I would like to overclock, but not extremely so.

A:Motherboard recommendations?

Avoid a new or recently released motherboard. Rely upon good reviews of boards, such as those found on www.tomshardware.com, www.anandtech.com and other such sites.
Too many motherboard manufacturers use their customer base as the final quality control of their recently released boards.
There are also monthly reviews of the latest video graphics cards to help you decide...
Do lots of reading. Avoid any component that has no published tests and reviews. Read the responses on forums such as Techspot.

Gigabyte told me back in June that my H67A-UD3H-B3 motherboard was compatible with Win10. After months of fighting various issues and an extremely long Gigabyte support ticket trying to get usb issues resolved, I called Gigabyte today because support wanted me to download another 10 iso, wipe the computer and start over for the umteenth time. Now I am told that NO the motherboard is not compatible with Win10. It will work but will continually have issues. I built this computer in 2011 so I have not kept up with the hardware advancements. I am looking at changing the board but have absolutely no idea as what to start looking at or if it is worthwhile to do the change. If I change the board, I would like to use as much of my hardware as possible. Any suggestions?


A:Motherboard recommendations

If you want to stick with LGA1155 (to keep your CPU) you're going to have to go back in time to Z77/H67 class chipsets and boards. Like 2012-2013 vintage. Are you sure you want to do that? If so, Tom's Hardware recommends the Asrock Z77 Extreme4 or the next-up version of your current board: the Gigabtye GA-Z77X-UD3H. I dunno. Seems like you might want to spring for newer components all the way around, unless you must make a minimum-cost move. In that case, keep on keepin' on, and see what kinds of deals you can get on those two mobos. From what I can see online, the Asrock fully supports Windows 10, while the Gigabyte appears to have only minor issues, if any.

I am going to need an Intel I3 2120 socket 1155 Sandy Bridge MB. What brands might be the highest quality: NewEgg has FoxConn, GigaByte, ECS (Elite Group), Asus, and many others ranging from $50 - $150. I already have an I3 2120 CPU, 4G of DDR3 memory and 2 Win8.1 HD along with an OCZ Fatality 550W PSU which I couldn't install in my HP 6200 which lacked a 24 Pin PS connector.

Anyway, HP wants >$300 for THEIR 2120 CPU vs. my stock 2120 which didn't boot in the HP MB. Obviously HP's Intel CPU's have some very slight architectural differences for which they charge triple the going rate. Fair warning for any "tinkerer" who might purchase a "Big Box" HP PC! The very well constructed PC was great until this latest episode which unfortunately sours me on the company. I have had 8-9 of their printers which are pretty good other than taking over the device drivers.

Hello everyone;

I just ordered a Q6600 processor from newegg, but I have no idea as to what board I should get because I paid more attention to AMD than Intel these past years.

Currently I own a Foxconn C51XEM2AA 590 SLI; it has two sticks of Corsair DDR2 800 RAM (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145590) in it. I would like to be able to transfer this RAM to my new motherboard, yet be able to upgrade to something like DDR2 1066 or something in the future; especially when I buy Vista.

The requiremements and limitations I have are that the the price needs to stay at a max of 180; rebates count too.
-I need a PCIe x16 slot fo rmy video card. It needs to support DDR2 800 and have room so I can upgrade to DDR2 1066 later or something higher.
-It needs to support LGA 775 Sockets because the processor is a Q6600
-Prefrrably something that stays cool
-Something that wont make a huge racket, such as the EVGA nforce.
-I have no preference if it's nvidia chipset or Intel.
-I will not buy Foxconn
-Needs SATA
I hope some experts could help me find a nice MOBO; thanks!

This isn't the case with me. It gets at a slightly "uncomfortable" heat level... as in i could keep my hand on it for as long as i wanted but it's just hot. I'm guessing...judging by my GPU temp and it's feel about 55 C maybe? on the top of the PSU. maybe it's because it's 550w and my comp needs a lot of power? i dont know. i have 1x 120mm blue led Thermaltake intake fan on the front of my case. 1x 80mm LED fan on the window. 1x normal 120mm fan on the back(exhaust) and a pci slot blower.

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.

Could anyone recommend any SLI motherboards (LGA1156)? I was looking for something that can take two Nvidia GTX 460 1GB's without being too expensive.


A:LGA1156 SLI motherboard recommendations

If you haven't already bought the CPU, then I would hold off for a few weeks if possible until Sandy Bridge (LGA 1155) releases.
Even if you aren't ready to be part of Intel's beta testing of the platform you'll most likely see a good reduction in P55 mainboard prices as vendors look to shift inventory. Intel has already stated that it intends to aggressively market the P67/H67, and with higher clocks and improved architecture (around 10% increased performance clock-for-clock over Lynnfield, 25-30% improvement at the same pricepoints) mainboard manufacturers and etailers are likely to slash prices on LGA1156 boards.

With the present pricing in effect I would look at:
Gigabyte P55A-UD4P
Asus P7P55D Deluxe (incredible pricing for the feature set but lacking SATA 6Gb and USB3
ASRock P55A Extreme4 (very good feature set)

All three boards have excellent PCIe slot placement allowing for breathing room between graphics cards.

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?

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.

Well when I see that screen it is reporting good temps, around 50C.

A:Core temperature or CPU temperature?

''personally'' i watch the (CPU temp), the individual core temps fluctuate far too much for a constant temp reading.

Hi (a post after a long time)
I've a F90M motherboard (with intel 915G chipset - i gues chipset doesn't have to do anything with front panel connections, but ... ). It came out of Acer 3700GX PC (i think its a bit old ).
Ok, now i'm trying to put it in a standard larger ATX casing. I've fitted it in and everything works fine except the front panel connections. I cannot identify the front panel connections and could only manage to identify the power switch pins on the motherboard.

I've searched over internet and couldn't find a manual of the motherboard (found manual for the PC on www.nodevice.com but it doesn't tell how to connect front panel)

so can you guys please suggest me the connections for front panel LEDs, Audio and USB.

and i really believe that you TSG guys are up to it

Thanks in advance

Hi, I have a flex 3 1480 80R3 with a acharging circuit problem . The laptop can be used when plugged in but it stopped charging after a power surge. The message is 'plugged in - not charging''. I have tested with diferent battery and charger and problem is on motherboard. Im wondering if I can get a motherboard repair walk-through if someone is familiar with this board, or perhaps if anyone has any ideas for how to get a schematic for the board so I can pass it to a technician and fix whatever component has gone bad. There is only one Lenovo service centre in Spain and the have quoted me crazy money as they dont repair boards they just swap them out. Thanks.

Regardless of the country you are in, the story is the same.  The boards are swapped, not repaired.

I've been looking for the front panel pin layout on the Dell Dual Xeon Motherboard with Dell P/N: 0WN7Y6 (it is a # zero, W, N, #7, Y, #6). 
The front panel connector is 27-pin...28 spots with one pin left blank. The pin layout isn't included in the manual and I'm trying to boot two of these motherboards without the 27-pin connector. I just need to know which pins need to be jumpered in order to test for boot to BIOS.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Dell doesn't make the front panel connector pin-outs public. So unless you map them yourself or somebody else has done it...

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.
Yes, I have run every diagnostic known to man and the internet.

A:CPU Temperature

It depends on your processor. Coretemp (google it) is great for the following processors:

All Phenom series.
All Athlon64 series.
All Athlon64 X2 series.
All Athlon64 FX series.
All Turion64 series.
All Turion64 X2 series.
All Sempron series. (K8 based)
Single Core Opterons starting with SH-C0 revision and up. (K8 based)
All Dual Core Opteron series. (K8 based)
All Quad Core Opteron series. (K10 based)

Initial Nehalem support.
All Core Solo series.
All Core Duo series.
All Core 2 Duo series.
All Core 2 Quad series.
All Core 2 Extreme series.
All Celeron-M 400 and 500 series.
All Celeron E1000 series.
All Pentium E2000, E2100, E2200 and E5000 series.
All Dual Core Low Voltage Xeons series (Yonah based. Untested).
All Xeon 3000, 3200, 3300, 5100, 5300, 5400 series

If your processor isn't in this list, download speedfan (google). It works for most other (older) cpus.
