temperature of CPU

  sootey 21:11 01 Jan 2004

I have a ASUS A7V8X MB with a Athlon 2000+CPU I use Probe
Can anyone tell me what the Temperatures for both the CPU & MB should be set at.
I also have 2 chassis fans, Is it necessary to have 2

Too many variables.

For example, how close is your computer to a heat source? Is the heat on all the time? How good is the air flow around your case? How many devices do have fitted? What's the ambient temperature?

You can see, it's an unanswerable question, however AMD claim the CPU is good to about 85 deg C. But I wouldn't want to run it that hot myself!

To give you some idea, I just checked mine, and keeping in mind the time of year, the CPU is 46 deg C with the internal temperature at 39. (1900 Athlon). So maybe an alarm temp. would be valid at around 60 deg C, but it's up to you!

My Athlon 2400 has run hapily 24/7 for the last six months at about 63-65 degrees. I run UD 24/7 and use no case fans at all. The system temp is about 39 degrees. The M/B shut down has been set to 95 degrees as default. I do not think you have anything to worry about.

As an aside different progs give widely different values of temp readings. Stick to the ones that come with the MB.
