Running an AMD Athlon 64 2800+ with stock cooler and am trying to get used to what temp this thing is running at. BIOS claims it runs at 37C idle, SpeedFan claims it's running at 50C and Everest claims 60C. I do have a front panel temp display, but it only displays the overall temp of the system, which right now is at 85.2F (about 30C).

Which would be most accurate? I would think BIOS but then again...

By the way, I hate new systems, the last time I built one, I always freaked about the temps and it's had not a single problem since I built it. Which is now almost 3 years ago ;)

what board is it?

Asus has a known flaw with temp reporting in almost all of their boards.

Gigabyte GA-K8U

System temp is 88.3F and holding for the past hourish or so (31ish C)

Both Everest and SpeedFan are reporting 63C for processor

Edit: I should probably also add that since I made my first post, I've been playing games and it's under heavy load right now and it's only gone up (according to those two programs) 3C

most of the time the cpu temp is higher than the system temp...
i think the BIOS has the most credible basis for the temp you got right now.

I understand that they're different things, I was just posting in case it was needed...

Anyway, processor temp in BIOS is 37C, SpeedFan and Everest are reporting it between 51C and 63C

Sounds about right. In the BIOS, the CPU has no load so it'll be a lot cooler. If those are your "in windows" temps, then you're fine, too.

Point about gauging temps. If you're not having hard lockups and reboots, you're fine. Learn to stop looking at those stupid monitoring programs and move on with life. If there's a problem, your system knows how to take care of itself. When it starts acting weird, that's when we'll diagnose the issue.

Well, since it's run just fine for several hours with no problems, I will assume it's fine. I just have an inherent paranoia when it comes to CPU temps. My first build, processor overheated and fried and I really don't want that to happen again :wink:

If it develops a problem, I'll post. Otherwise, it's fine, I won't worry. Thanks guys :D
