everyone's CPU/motherboard temperature?

CPU 57 (nomally about 50 after an hour). Graphics seem to be playing up :O(

Motherboard has gone up by 7 degrees, yet the cpu has only increased by 1.5 degrees to 43.5.

I have just moved the workstation and put the sides back on. This is the first time it has been "shut " for six months.

Ah the joys of self build. lol

up about 6°c on CPU and 4°c on MOBO

How did I miss that one. Easy! Been busy with a couple of other computers and haven't been on the internet. lol

Fred: That's reassuring, been trying to get some more work out of both to see what the temp will finally reach.


Present CPU temp=49/50C - Motherboard=36C

I think I'm hotter than both lol

Considering just how hot it has been this past week, and how it has affected us users, then I think our PC's have coped quite well! Mine has gone from 50/52 to 54/56 for XP1800+ :o)

Living on the coast I do not find the temperature to be a problem but the computer is getting a little hot Athlon 2400 57deg. System temp 39

  hugh-265156 23:06 09 Aug 2003

room temp 28ºC

mobo 31ºC cpu 38ºC hard drive 30ºC

has been on since 10am this morning.

if i throw in a game its a different story altogether.

I've certainly not been effected..:-)

But it hasn't affected my system, probably because the most efficient cooling is with the panels on the case - taking them off immediately destroys the flow of air over the components and is more likely to cause overheating.
