High Temps

Postby Porphyria » Sat May 11, 2002 9:19 pm

I dled Motherboard Monitor and checked my temps for the first time. My Sony 1.6G p4 is running at 88C! Ouch! :( These temps can't possibly be normal... can they? My mobo is at 48 and whatever the third temp on the monitor is at 33.

What does the BIOS say the temperature is at?

Never mind. I just checked the BIOS and it said my CPU is at 45 and my mobo is at 35. These temps sound normal, no?

That's more or less the median of temperatures. You motherboard seems a tad high, but the CPU is alright. Be sure to test after 30 minutes of idle, and after 3 hours of <insert favorite game here>.

That should give you a normal high and low temperature for your computer.

Also I think the motherboard monitor can adjust the sensor readings to show more accurate readings. Either look for an option in the settings to lower the sensor that it is reading 80C from to whatever your BIOS says. Also try re-configuring the different temp readings to look at different sensors on your motherboard.
