I'm having a bit of trouble following (more than likely my fault). What is the GPU fan speed during load?

If the RPM's seem normal, it could be thermal bond in the thermal paste that is broken.
If the fan speed doesn't appear to be normal, the fan itself could be broken.

Hi, I plan on OCing my Sapphire HD7850, I know to never allow it go above 80 degrees celcius. What I'm wondering is should I allow it to get to 70 degrees or 75?

Will my card last a lot longer if I only let it reach 70 as opposed to 75? I'd like the card to last a couple of years more at least.


A:HD 7850 max temp?

GPUs are generally quite resilient to high temperatures, 80C won't be a problem. My 7970 in a Crossfire sandwich gets above 90C on a hot day and it's been running merrily for about 18 months.

Voltage is also important and will kill the card if you up it too much.

I'm in the process of building a new computer to replace my aging Q6600 setup, and I decided to go with Asrock's new "OC Formula" Motherboard. This motherboard comes with some inbuilt profiles for overclocking, and I decided that 4.8 GHz sounded like an awesome number so I clicked on the profile, rebooted and from what I can tell it's working like a lovely dream.

What I want to know is, what sort of temps should I be getting? Because right now I am sitting on 72 degrees C after 30 minutes of Prime95 and from everything I've read the temps should be a lot higher.

according to the bundled AsRock software (OC Formula Drive)
VCORE = 1.343 V
BCLK/PCIE Freq = 100 MHz
CPU Ratio = x 48.0
GT Frequency = 350 MHz

Using Corsair's H100 Cooler with stock fans and thermal paste, and an i5 3570K.

Thanks in advance for any handy responses.

A:3570k @ 4.8 GHz with CPU temp of 70c

Just as an update, CPU Temperature is now sitting on 65C after 1 hour of Prime95, although it can sometimes shoot up to 69 or 70C and stay there for a while.

I did remove the heatsink n clean all dust

I did replace the thermal paste

i replace another processor to confirm that is not a faulty processor's thermal sensor

I tried to change power setting to 'Always On' and is still the same

I tried to overclock it using NHC but its still slow

Anyway that i can disable the temp throttle down?
I dont care if that overheat my laptop as if i have to use a laptop with 500mhz i rather try to cure it.
Btw this is an unused anymore,i just wanna try to fix/modify to make it fullspeed again.

A:Max temp to allow EVGA GT 240 before cranking fan up?

Hi Debbie,
GPU' s are designed to run warmer than CPU's so while cooler is better, 50-60c is nothing to get overly concerned with. increasing the airflow through your case to lower temps would be preferable to running the cards fan at 90% constantly if you can. The upper thermal limit for GPU's (AMD & Nvidia) is 105c. while thats to warm as far as I am concerned, If you can keep idle temps below 50c and load temps to 85c or less, the card will probably outlast your use for it.
Hope that helped

Hello, this is my first attempt at addressing this issue, it seems that whenever my GPU is under load (its a Nvidia geforce gt 220 btw) it shoots up past 90 C. im rather sure its not bad airflow since all other parts of my system are running cool, including my cores (quad core) which are at maybe 45C under load.

im not sure what is causing this problem but i have to decide between purchasing extra cooling, or a new card. I was hoping someone could help me with the decision.

Or... is the Everest sensor accurate? The heatsink isn't overly hot to the touch.

A:Northbridge temp too high?

If that was under full load then no its not too hot.* They are designed to run at those temps.
Is your x 2 550 a BE? and were you running the HT/NB oc'ed? I would watch the temps if you plan to push it higher. If it still bothers you, you can pick up a after-market NB cooler for $20 and keep it below 50C under load. Its within operating temps but personally I like to keep the NB to 50c or below, but thats just me. You might also try to get a few free degrees out of iy and replace the thermal compound on the NB HS. *****be very careful if you do, you are dealing with a very small chip and it takes very little compound to be effective******

On a new build I have an air cooler ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2. I have an OC of 3.6 on a Phenom 1090. Not much but still an OC. I have several different things to check temp and all of them are saying 36 degrees at idle. They are also measuring all 6 cores and all of those say between 26-27. Is this a good idle temp or should it be less than this?

A:Temp reading question

These are very good Idle temps. I have a phenom II X3 720 OC'd to 3.8 and it runs at around 42-45c load. That is a higher overclock though and I' cranked up the vcore to get as much out of it as I could. You don't need to worry about temperature if it is under 50C. It's been my experience that you can run a CPU at 65C max without killing it. After 50C it really is your choice if you want to take the risk. You have a very good heatsink, though. You have lots of overclocking headroom if your CPU will hold up.

Hey guys,
In the past few days my PC was kept shutting down by it self while I am using it, So I posted this topic
but no one answered anyway, I figured that it would be good if I check my CPU temp and I downloaded nVidia System Monitor and it showed me that my CPU temp is 80C, TBH I paniced!
GPU temp is 49C but CPU is 80C I think it is extremely high, do you?
Also is this the correct measurement or it is an error in the software?
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 @ 3.00 GHz


A:CPU temp is 80C, measured via Nvidia monitor, is this possible?

It's entirely possible, and 80c is quite enough to shut the system down.

Before you do anything else you should check to make sure the heat sink fan hasn't come off the CPU, that the fan is working, and the fins are clean.

You can get a second opinion about the actual temps from several programs, "Speed Fan", and "SIW", (System Information for Windows). If you decide to use SIW, make sure you download the, ""Freestanding English Version". You don't have to install this version, and it's free. Yuo want this version; "SIW Without Installer (English-Only)", from this page;

Plus, sometimes the motherboard's maker has software available for this purpose also.

As I posted in the general hardware thread, I am building a computer and need some help deciding where to place the case fans. The case is a Thermaltake V3, it has a bottom mounted PSU, 2 top fan spaces, 1 bottom fan space, 1 front fan space, and one upper-rear fan space. All are 120mm. The PC isn't going to be doing anything that should make it real hot but I want to make sure its well cooled. I was thinking of just putting a front and rear, but will the spaces in the top and bottom cause circulation issues without fans installed there? I'm building a new pc because my current notebook is failing because the graphics card overheats I'm a little paranoid about keeping things cool. :suspiciou

A:Help with fan placement in Thermaltake V3

Fans are comparatively cheap, and I err on the side of more airflow is better so i would say fill all of the available fan spaces, or put one more exhausting air than pulling it in for a negative airflow. Its a bit more dusty, but gets more air through the system.

A:Overclocked CPU with aftermarket cooler temp range questions

temps are fine, but if you wanted to test the cooler's limits raise the vcore a bit and monitor the temps via BIOS. when the chip idles in the mid to high 40's (and perhaps into the 50s), try running some CPU intensive applications, then monitor temps again. if the processor climbs into the 60s or 70s on load then i would say that's your limit. you may be able to keep the temps down a little bit with a high-performance thermal compound, but consider that an extra step...

My first two builds both have Asus M4A785M boards and they both show consistently higher CPU temps on the BIOS then whichever performance monitoring software I'm using. IE: Everest, HW monitor, PC Probe, Moo0 etc.
I've done some OCing on stock air on both boards and none of my temps are excessive or erratic just reading higher in the BIOS then on the software (3-5C idle, 5-9C load).

Is this unusual? It seems weird to me because the software is reporting from the same sensors as the BIOS... what gives?

A:Discrepancies in temp readings

Whatever readings you are getting, trust the BIOS readings over any software you are using.
Best thing you could probably do is to start the pc up and let it run until the temperature normalises, then boot into the bios and record the reading.
Use that reading and add the offset to your software.

As an example, my thuban in bios might read 25C and when I boot into windows, CoreTemp says 15C. I add 10C to the CoreTemps offset, thus getting the more accurate readout.

Make sure you have the latest bios too .

my computer starts with initial temp 75C, when starting a game or even a small program in reaches 96 and restarts, I changed the termal material between the CPU and the heatsink and made sure the fan is installed tightly, I thaught of underclocking because its cheeper but it didnt decrease the temp significantly. what solutions are there other than water cooling?

A:CPU temp reaches 96C and restarts PC

You definitely should not require water cooling on that Pentium. What are the ambient temperatures like? I think that the thermal compund may have not been applied correctly or the contact between HSF and CPU is not sufficient. I hope you did not apply too much TIM. Sometimes that acts as an insulator resulting in very high temps. Remove the HSF and clean off all the residual TIM from it and the CPU. Ensure that nothing falls into the mobo as it could cause a short. Then re-apply the thermal compund and re-assemble it. If it still doesn't help, look to getting a better aftermarket HSF.

After failing to boot several times, I discovered that my CPU temp in the BIOS was 108*C, after which the computer shut down. It was caused by one of the heatsink pins coming loose. After I secured the heatsink, the computer booted up and all was well, with an idle CPU temp around 41*C, however, there is a noticeable drop in performance when running games.

Without getting into any technical aspects, I just wanted to know if having the CPU heat up to this temperature (I started it up several times before realizing the problem) would cause damage to the CPU AND/OR the motherboard. I can understand if the CPU has been damaged, but could it also have damaged the mobo?

A:CPU and/or mobo damage after 108*C CPU temp

It can, but doesn't usually... if the temperature rise is brief... No way to know without trying it...

Often the actual temperatures are not close to what your system reports... It can handle 64 to 70 degrees without trouble, and above that it is luck of the draw.

A:Quirky CPU temp problem

CPU at 39C is fine. When exactly do you get the spike to 100C? If this persists I suggest that you reapply the TIM on the CPU and fit the HSF properly after cleaning.

I have 2 temp monitoring programs on my pc and they both say my mobo is at 84c. I only have 2 fans but I opened my case and put a large house fan right in front of it and turned it change. It will also read at that temp when it is off all night and I check right after I turn it on..........any suggestions?

A:Worried about mobo temp

To verify what the software is stating, check the temps in the actual system BIOS before the computer loads the OS, during POST. The mobo temp is typically read from the northbridge on the motherboard which controls RAM, video, and CPU. Some chipsets run hotter than others but 80+ temps isn't normal for anything I'd say; you def want to check it out.

There is usually a heat sink placed on the northbridge in which you may be able to reseat if you pull the motherboard out. Perhaps applying new thermal compound and reseating the sink will provide better temps. If you are overclocking the motherboard, you may need to reset the settings to default so that the NB voltage is within factory spec.

My 2 year old gaming pc, seems to have a cpu temp issue, ever since I put it together.

I have a intel core 2 duo - 6320 that is 1.86 GHz stock.

With Evga 680i sli tr motherboard.

I also dumped the stock cooling for a zalman fan.

It seems like my cpu idles anywhere from 35 - 40 C. When I just tried overclocking from 1.8 to 2.8 i noticed the cpu was jumping to about 70 - 76 C, on 100 percent load.

The only thing I can think of is my problem when I put thermal paste on. I can never seem to do it right. Does anybody have any tips? On how to cool this thing down.

A:Help cooling down cpu temp

idle temps are fine... i would try some Arctic Silver 5, Tuniq TX-2 or OCZ FreeZe compound. The Zalman grease (if that's what you ended up using) is okay but I've had better overclock temps using other solutions. The cooler itself should be fine just check that the fan is spinning at the correct speed under load.

if you're having trouble applying the thermal, take a look at this:

Tell us more about your monitoring software... and your cooling fans... along with case fan and case size.

First thing I would do is replace the power supply with one of more wattage and a reputation ands specs that show more constant output...

Then I would be certain I have cleaned the CPU and re-applied the thermal paste to be certain it is as thin as possible while still providing contact... as the common mistake is having to much. Too much acts as an insulator rather than a heat transfer tool.

Then I would replace the fan most likely to be ineffective.

I trust Everest and Realtemp, but I worry about your sensors.

So I just built a new system for myself and I have been running prime95 to test out some overclock settings and using speedfan to watch my temps. Occasionally when I come to check on it, Speedfan is toggling in-between two different temps for 'system' and 'cpu'. IE, cpu will show the (real) temp of 63 C, and system will have its real temp, then a few seconds later they will both switch to bogus negative numbers (of a different value), then switch back a few seconds later. This goes on forever until I open a menu in speedfan or restart it.

Has anyone ever heard of this happening?

The system in question is an i7 920 on an asus p6t.

I have been building computers for years and never found a reason for the placement of the memory slots on a motherboard. If you look at a board that uses an Intel CPU, the slots used are1-3 and/or 2-4. If you look at a board that uses an AMD CPU however, the slots used are 1-2 and/or 3-4. Does anybody know why this is? No, I'm not trying to make a better motherboard, I'm just curious enough to finally ask.

Thanks for any info anyone can give.

A:Memory slot placement

'If you look at a board that uses an AMD CPU however, the slots used are 1-2 and/or 3-4.'

refer to the MSI K9N - which see;

Dual channel with slots 1/3 or 2/4.

Assuming that you installed 2 Gb in 4 modules of dual channel ram and it is used from byte 0 to 2047 linearly, then assuming that the average 2 Gb ram install running XP uses about 50% of the Ram running avg8 (as example), you would get heating in ram modules 1 and 3 and none to speak of in 2 and 4.

Thus, heat separated components and better cooling.

My opinion.

A:Correct Temp Reporting

Unless you are having computer problems like you mentioned, freezing, blue screens or shutdowns, temp readings are not critical. Temp sensors on motherboards are notorius for being less than accurate. Even if you used a good thermocouple to measure the temps, it would depend on where you placed the probe to get the most accurate temp. For a CPU the best place for the probe tip would be between the CPU heatsink and the CPU die... As you can imagine, this is not practical

Now I know the CPU shouldn't really exced 60C but what about a GPU?
Mine runs at about 55C to 70C (70 when playing games) but when not doing anything its about 60C

So what should the Temp of a GPU be?

A:GPU Temp

Technically i believe the GPU can be a bit higher than what the CPU runs at.
CPU's have a threshold of about 100C forcing an automatic shut down, Graphics cards have them about 20C higher than that
At 70 under load that is bordering quite Hot but ok, as long as it doesn't hit 80C and over at that temp it could start causing damage.
The same with a CPU over 60C and that could start causing damage.

Which Graphics Card do you have?
Normally a Idle temp around 50-60C is what is normally seen and around 70-80C when under load for GPU's, Because this is only a rough estimate on GPU's yours may be different

I think the auto shut down is only for the CPU.

As for solving the problem... depends on how you caused the problem. Is it possible that more dust went into the HSF unit, and caused some clogging? I know this might be a little hard to get rid of...

Another solution would be to change the whole HSF unit. You'd get lower temps, but it'll cost you money, and the warranty.

And if there not what would you recommend to do to push down the temperature?

A:CPU Temp Question

Agreed, good advice zeno, I would of said the same thing.

It's been many Processors ago... But! I have been trying to find MAX Processor Temperature a great place to start would be the Duo E6600. The MAX Voltage is 1.35v going by Intel standards without a temperature. Like most I would imagine that it might be 30 above room temp. I have not found it yet. Can anyone out there give a hand with a location? This is my first since the ole Socket 7?. Just a couple of years ago right

Thanx, nicholas_t

A:Hardware Temp's Min & Max....

I'm not sure its published. They give temps like Max Case Temp for the processor, and that is something like 63C, but if you look around you'll see people's core temps exceeding that and still running. Something is screwy with my setup right now and my core temps will get to 67C on a E6400 when running Intel's Thermal Analysis Tool. I'm going to put on a better heatsink/fan soon. I have it sitting here next to me, but I killed 2 computers yesterday when I was inside them so I'm taking a break on replacing stuff for a bit. I have no idea what went wrong.

Cpu temp questions please read

I just installes a new heatsink and fan on a amd athlon xp 2500+ 1.84 ghz . the idle temp before was 34 now it idles at 45. It runs well however should this temp be a concern for this chip? I used a cooper heatsink and artic silver5. Most of my computers i can get to idle at 35-39.
I also have a new P4 3.20 that no matter what I do it idles at 54. It is running vista mone basic if that matters. Should I be concerned about this one?
Can anyone direct me to a free site that I can run a program to see these temps at high load? Thank you

A:Cpu temp questions

Heat dissipation is also greatly affected by heatsink fan speed/air flow.

Is the new fan slower or setup differently in bios or connected differently?

I've got an Asus P4C800-E Deluxe board, and it has a
utility that shows what the temp is, and has provision for
an adjustable threshold above which it will provide an
overheating warning.

Also shows processor temp with the same settable threshold
warning. It's a 2.8 P4 Northwoods.

Trouble is, I don't know what those threshold temps should be?

I have added extra cooling fans and vents to the upright case.

Hey Just bought the Intel E recently and finally managed to get it working after updating the bios Once it loaded up i checked the temps of the CPU and it at temperature Striker placement Extreme sensor idle it was around degrees This seemed Striker Extreme temperature sensor placement quite high considering i have the Zalman CNPS NT Striker Extreme temperature sensor placement Fan and feeling the fan and the air coming out the back it didn t feel like over at all more like mid s low s after feeling the temps of the E a while ago Ive tried remounting the fan but no difference So after searching other forums i found that theres a few problems with some of the temperature sensor on the chips some peoples reading temperatures of over degrees So what someone was recommending was using an external sensor to monitor it The striker extreme came with three temperature sensor cables and I was wondering where you could put it on the CPU that would give acurate readings but not damage it at all Also the first time i ran the chip on the older bios it reported a temperature of around degrees Thanks nbsp

A:Striker Extreme temperature sensor placement

Temperature you report is normal for idle. The CPU runs hot. 62C is even normal for operation when in use.

I was wondering what is more accurate, the program speedfan which says my cpu is 41C or Nvidia system monitor program which says it is 55C

A:Cpu temp question

Depends on where the sensor is. Both are within the safe range of 62C
I would use the sensor with the higher temperature as my control... as you are merely trying to prevent excess temperatures.

Hello everybody

I have build my own pc but I think I've made a mistake because I can't see the temperature or the fan-speed of my GeForce 8800gt.

Everest Home edition just shows blank fields where the data is supposed to be shown. PC wizard does the same. And nTune does not give any data either..

I have the latest drivers, so I wonder if I have forgotten something when I installed the 8800gt (hardware problems?)

The card: Asus Extreme GeForce 8800GT 512MB

Please help me

A:Help: 8800gt cant see temp or fan-speed

I would start by downloading the latest nvidia driver to your desktop. Then uninstall the current driver in safe mode (tap f8 on boot). Restart and then install the latest one in safe mode.

Restart normally.

then update your card's bios from here:

Please double check this is your exact card.

Hi guys, nice site ^__________^

I am wondering, what's the max temp on an amd athlon x2 6000+ ?

When I play games, it easily go 55 degrees celcius (i've clicked alt f4 when i reach 55..), and SpeedFan shows a logo of a fire when it's in 50 degrees so i turn all games down.

is it safe to play in 55-57 degrees?

I have the BTF95 cooler (passive) from ZEROtherm.

btw i haven't overclocked.

A:AMD Athlon X2 6000+ AM2 temp.

Yes LMAO. This is with stock cooler? than thats awesome. Withmy old stock cooler on my X2 5000+ overclocked to 2.9GHz I ran Prime95 and it almost hit 80C and was still perfectly stable, although it raised room temperatures quite a bit (in the high 35+C). Don't know what games ran at but I'm guessing well over 60C. Hell those temps you got there used to be my idle temps.

I have since than got a Thermalright Ultima 90 and raised volts a little and got a 3GHz speed (equivalent to your X2 6000+) and now my temps never exceed 60C. They idle in the high 30's low 40's But thats because its summer here and room temps get VERY hot.

Your temps are perfectly fine. Its when they start hitting in the mid/high 60's I'd start to worry. Cause by the sounds of it, your running stock.

I'm going to buy 120mm case fan would it be ok to tape it out on there? My case doesn't have any pins do put a fan into.
I'm also wondering i could maybe place it on bottom panel below my gfx card.

I just installed my core 2 quad and the temp is around 55 c to 57 c. Is this a good temp. I have a themaltake v1 fan. Is there any other better fans to bring the temp down to like mid 40's

A:Core 2 quad q6600 temp

That's not a bad temp but it could be lower. You could get a Zalman heatsink/fan (hsf), i have found them to be very effective.

Google for reviews if you want, to find one that will reduce your temp the most

I just ran speedfan for the first time and, this being my first CPU with more than 1 core (Q6600), I'm a bit confused over the temp readings. I have a CPU temp, which is fine, and I have Core 0, 1, 2 and 3 temps, which are also fine. I'm guessing they are the separate core temps. But I also have a temp reading which is just labeled "Core". I thought this would be the CPU temp but I have a separate reading for that so I'm not sure what it means. So basically I want to know what the "Core" temp means if it doesn't mean CPU?

APOLOGIES IN ADVANCE as I am a NOOB here I m trying to sort out a wildly Temp LM78 data fluctuating Thermal Shutdown issue with a P that is only used for word processing and other simple tasks reason it is not being replaced After checking things out with the BIOS toolkit and disabling thermal shutdown for testing only I monitored temps with both Speedfan and Everest similar readings What I noticed was that Temp LM chip was all over the place jumping from to then down to - c with no discernible pattern to the jumps The other two temps that Speedfan found remained nice and constant at expected values The other thing I noted was that power monitoring speedfan also showed considerable fluctuation with all rails often showing well below target voltages I have checked and cleaned all cooling system parts and am happy that the cpu is NOT actually running too hot but I would like to work out what is happening Could the fluctuations with the PSU be causing the LM to read incorrectly nbsp

Noobs have to start somewhere - welcome!
I think this might be a problem with your power supply - and if you leave it the chances are that it will give up and maybe take something with it. If you can try another one and see.

About a month ago I built my own PC Everything surprisingly went of 100C over temp. CPU well until yesterday My processor Ghz Pentium was running a tad hot at about C in the BIOS but i thought nothing CPU temp. of over 100C more of it as my computer was running fine Then yesterday it started to cut out before the boot up had even completed CPU temp. of over 100C I tried a couple of times but it would not get past the boot stage I looked on the PC health in BIOS and it was reading about degrees celcius before it would finally cut out I did buy a relatively cheap cooling fan i must admit Thermaltake TR -M SE But i should still not be getting that amount of heat especially as it was working before And of course i have checked that it is spinning correctly and is in contact with the gel Any help would be appreciated Many thanks Spec Intel P Ghz Gigabyte GA- P-S motherboard GB Corsair mhz memory BFG GTS mb Graphics card Thermaltake TR W PSU nbsp

A:CPU temp. of over 100C

If the fan is spinning and you are getting that hot, then there are 2 possibilities I can think of. Thermal sensor failure (unlikely) or the heatsink has stopped making good contact with the processor (more likely). I'd remove your heatsink/fan clean off the thermal paste with alcohol, then reapply a thin layer of paste and reattach the heatsink/fan to the processor. That should fix you right up.
