how can i find the temperature for the cpu? i use windows xp. also, what is the normal operating temp for a pentium d 3.4?

press delete several times on start up, enter bios, pc health, this shows temp of cpu. go back into windows after you have finished looking.
after using pc for a time, preferably doing something that taxes the cpu shutdown and restart and go back into bios and loook at the temp again.

Download click here Everest home edition, look in Computer then select sensor which will give you fan speeds and temperatures.

Speed fan click here will give you what you want. It is free and you can adjust fanspeeds and monitor system and CPU temperatures. 40c to 55c is about the range

Or try a nice little program called CoreTemp click here

As to "safe" operating temps. It really depends on what chip and how good your cooling solution is.

As an example. My AMD Opteron 180 (really an AMD X2 4800+)idles at around 30C and under pressure reaches around 48C. If you want to check temps under pressure, try a program like SP2004 (GOOGLE for it if interested).

Core Temp did not work for me on an Intel D930
2x3ghz processor. Message "This is not an Intel Processor"

I got the same.

Re CoreTemp.

Is that with the latest version 0.95?
