PC Temperature

  VOT Productions 19:18 27 Apr 2010

Hi, I think got a problem.

While the PC is working fine, the temperature of it is high (I think)

Processor is AMD Altlon 64 X2 5000+. I try to run IE and temperature is:
Core 1: 75C
Core 2: 70C
(SpeedFan temperature.)

And the HDD:
Is around 47C
(SpeedFan too)

Is this high?

Core 2: 72C

best to look in motherboard bios for temp, its in pc health or similar name. i have not had an amd cpu but intel cpu auto slows down or shuts down at danger point to prevent damage, presume amd has similar feature. you can always install a better cooler. gelid tranquillo is great and cheap.

none in motherboard!

but my temp problems are in Windows. I noticed the temp goes up with the noise level.

if I boot to BIOS, leave it a couple of minutes, it very quiet. However when I go to Windows it goes really up.

In Ubuntu it's quiet too.

you can have a look with a progam called coretemp. I would get the gelid tranquillo anyway as it will lower temps and not make any noise.

but my temp problems are in Windows.

don't quite see how, more likely needs good housekeeping, cleaning fan and heatsink might help..

unless of course you have already done this...
