Windows 7: Motherboard temperature?

theres nothing wrong with those temperatures on the CPU.

Where you testing and asking because you where getting crashes or just because Speccy said your temps where high ?

do you have any reason to believe your system is faulty ?

Is that too hot??
I just want to remind people that the OP actually stated it was the motherboard temp he was concerned about not the CPU. I suggest you double check and clear that up as well. Maybe the mobo is overheating.

My system usally crashes when the mobo hits 45C - 50C even though my CPU is fine. During gaming I have to crank the case fans up.

When playing games like FarCry3, Hitman, Borderlands 2 (though they are NOT set high details and textures and so on..) after 10mins games either crash to desktop or everything freezes and a strange buzzing sound starts and I need to manually restart the PC.. I am aware that my PC is low-end but it should be more than capable to play those games ok on normal settings. When just working on PC everything seems to be ok.. If it was only one game that is crashing I wouldn't be alarmed, but seems whenever it is on heavy load it crashes.

Couple of weeks ago I took my PC to the shop because of BSOD prob and they changed that component that regulates power and voltages (sorry, don't know the English word for it) so that can't be a problem. That problem is gone now, but now this is happening..

I don't know how helpful this will be, but let's try HWMonitor (it's free):

It shows temps (along with other things), and maybe one of us can figure out what temps are for what. So what you'll do is leave this open while trying to play games. Then, we can compare its temps to what Speccy says.

What you're describing sounds to me like something somewhere in your system is overheating. I mean, you said they replaced the power supply, so like you said: that can't be the problem, unless the power supply they replaced it with is just as bad as the other one.

Is that motherboard or a processor temp? (don't laugh if it is the same thing)
Processor. And the temperature is ok, as told by that program.

Hmmm, the test is basically "do this complex math" and since it is repeated a few times the results in the panel (those strings of numbers) should be the same. You notice that the last one is different in either the first pass and the second time you ran it?

This means there is something screwing with the data elaboration even without overheating the CPU.

I'd have a look at RAM, and hope that is the cuprit, otherwise it's a faulty CPU.

But the CPU's core temperatures are very safe, nowhere near being too high.

RAM is definitely a possibility.
Hardware Monitor is good for showing min & max for a range of sensors including fan speeds.

With Hardware Monitor I would open it then let the computer idle for 5 mins then run a game but not too long, you don't want it freeze cause if you have to hard reset you'll lose Hardware Monitors readings. Try to play for a minimum of 20mins to 30mins or if that length of time is not possible just play for what you think will be safe.

Thanks guys for showing interest in my problem!
I ran memtest+ about month ago during whole night (because I thought RAM was causing BSODs, but it was power supply, it is now changed for a new one) and there were no errors, but I'll run it again tonight..

This morning I ran intel burn test again first thing when I turned PC on and it worked OK (10 passes), no errors and I was recording temperatures with HWmonitor (I'll upload the pic), but after that I tried the same test a couple of times and it always crashed on second or third pass, and temps look the same as the time it passed the test...

This is what HW temps look like when test fails

temperatures look great albeit with your fan running at 100%

what stands out for me is the low voltage on the 12v rail , with a quality PSU that should sit solidly around 12v with a maybe 1v allowable either side.

a poor PSU will allow voltages under load to drop and any of your devices like CPU and Ram will begin to generate errors due to lack of voltage.

I would keep that screenshot and ask them for another decent power supply not just another swop out cheap and cheerful ?

If you get the opportunity maybe ask them what make and model PSU they have fitted.
