Temperatures inside my PC

  Halmer 11:50 19 Jun 2008

Following my earlier thread click here about my PC randomly shutting down and the amount of fluff that I found blocking the vents I have run Everest to get a report.

Can someone advise if these temperatures seem reasonable please now that I have cleaned it out?

Motherboard 39%C
CPU 29%
GPU 66%
Samsung HD 46%
Samsung HD 38%

Mobo = OK
GPU = A little high but it depends on the chip
HD 1 = A little high
HD 2 = OK

So do I need to do anything and if so what please.

What is the graphics card?
You may need to clean the heat sink and fan on it.
A case fan at the front to provide air intake at the HDDs would relieve the HD 1 temp problem. Would HD1 be sitting on top of HD2 by any chance? If your case is capable you could separate them more by moving them apart.

GPU is nVIDIA GEFORCE 6200SE Turbo Cache.

I assume the two Samsungs are the memory sticks and if so why would they run at different temperatures?

GPU temp is high then and I would recommend looking at the graphics card to see if there is fluff/dirt blocking it.

HD1 and HD2 are the hard disks which store your data and the operating system. They are not the RAM which is about 1.5" x 6" and very thin. The HDs are about 5" x 3.5" x 1" and are usually situated at the front of the case about half way up.

Front vents at the bottom which I missed from the outside were also pretty fluffed up and blocked but not too bad inside otherwise.

Bit of dust on the fans and at the bottom of the case/top of the hard drives which I carefully dusted off/vacuumed.

I assume the graphics card is the fairly big one with a fan on the side of it? Seemed fairly clean to me. Running at 62 c (don't know where the degree symbol is on my PC sorry!) as I type this.

Will see how I go.

graphics card temp nothing to worry about it can go higher, gpu can stand a lot more heat than cpu.

the graphics are very warm, my hottest 8800 ultra on idle is 56c, something isnt right somehow.

the core slowdown threshhold is 120c to 130c on nvidia cards,
