Running temperatures

  Furkin 08:23 18 Jun 2008

Just a quickie guys,

I am getting a slight ‘whirring’ sound from my unit and assume that it’s one of the fans (both about 12m old ?!).
I have just checked the temps and wondered if they are normal,,,, or normal enough ?

M.B 34c/95
GPU 47c/117f
H.D 30c/86f
CPU 51c/124f
Fan speeds:
Chassis 3310
CPU 1300
ACER T120 - 2gb ram - 120 hdd - XP Pro (SP2)- IE v6.
This is in my lounge.

Thanks for looking,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

All normal - but a good internal clean-up is always a good thing, lots of dust builds up in 12months, especially around and on fans.

cheers again Techno,,,,,,,
I only noticed the whirring last night when I went to switch off,,,, & again first thing this morning - which is why I checked temps etc.
It stopped now,,,, but maybe my cheapo CPU fan is drying or something ?!

I'll check the inside for muck later,,,,,,,,,

The sound could possibly be coming from your hard-drive. Make sure you have everything backed-up, just in case.

Or again possibly, your PSU fan and Dust!

thanks - if it starts again, i'll whip the side off to see if I can determine where it's coming from,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
