What is the optimal CPU temperature? My new build seems to be running a little hot. In BIOS the readings start at 57C for CPU and 40 for board and within 10 minutes they climb to 65 (CPU) and 52 (board). When I finish booting, the board monitoring software tells me CPU tem is55.
Is this ok?

-273.15C :lol:

Seriously, if it isn't giving errors, leave it be. People freak out of temps too much. Those sensors are hardly accurate anyway.

If it starts rebooting or programs start crashing, then we'll look at a possible cooling issue. If you're really worried, open it up and dust out the HSF. Then reapply thermal paste. If its a new build, make sure you didn't leave the plastic on the thermal pad.

Ok, thanks. I guess I am a little freaked out, but it's my first "baby". If it won't work, I'll never hear the end of it :D

So I guess mine running at -275C is a bit on the chilly side? :P

I prefer 0k
Thank You

Not sure if you knew this, and that is the joke you made, but -273.15C is 0k, or as cold as anything can possibly be.

:lol:

The point of 0° K. can never be reached! -273.15°C. is about as close as can be achieved.
Reference 1:
Reference 2:

All aside, it is preferred that a CPU run in the range of 35°C. to 45°C. but up to 55°C. is acceptable, when heavy data processing is done. Going beyond 60°C. may cause thermal limiters to become active, causing the CPU to slow or shut down. There are some refrigerant-type CPU coolers that maintain a temp of around 10°C. and the CPU does work very efficiently. But the cooling process is power-hungry!
