Windows 7: System temp

System temp

Hello all. Just wondering if my system temp was too high. In cpuid Hardware Monitor under temperatures my system is at 86degrees celcius. Just asking because occasionally my computer freezes and it shows nothing in the event viewer. Thanks for reading this and hopefully you can help.

86C is hot! Is that for the cpu or video card temp? I had a slight temp problem here on the new build when it was found that the heat shields on the replacement memory saw the first hsf lifted up slightly on one side ending in high cpu temps. A new hsf then had to replace the first to avoid the leaning on dimms problem.

(then the 1st board was cooked by a faulty supply while the first pair of dimms saw use in another new case. )

Did you use too much thermal paste by chance? How is the cooling as far as air flow in the case itself? Also chack to see if all fans are running including the one on the video card if not a fanless hsf there.

86c is an ouch... Night Hawk seems to have you very well covered...

Perhaps you could post a screen shot of both CPU-Z and Core Temp.

CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting

Core Temp

This way we may be able to give better suggestions,

But on the surface, yeah, 86 celsius is high.

And Night Hawk has some good points.

The temp is for my mainboard. The videocard and cpu have a normal temp.

I need like 10 pair of glasses to see that but I get the point

As I said, look Night Hawk's suggestions and let us know.

Thanks.

I believe the high temp is my southbridge. I am looking into it now. Thanks guys.

CPU = CPU
CPU1 = NB
System = PWM area.

Try to get some airflow across the PWM area of the case.

PWM is the circuit on the Motherbaord that converts the voltage level from power supply to provide voltage to components.

That could be an erroneous false temp reading for the board as well. I've seen that a few times and then crosschecked with a fast reboot into the hardware monitor to see normal temps.

The cpu and card temps are well within the normal range especially for a system that's been on all day. They are not the ideal while still acceptable. Examing the present cooling as well as considering another or larger fans would be one item to increase the air flow as well as the type and style case you have there.

The lower you can keep the board temps the lower the rest will be unless an hsf for example has too much paste applied when the cpu is first installed or something like a problem card appears. A friend had to replace one card when the fan on the card itself failed.

For you however having a look with PC Wizard 2010 would be another option to crosscheck the accuracy of the readings you have been seeing. CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting

So far that has been more accurate when making the fast trip into the bios then seen with CoreTemp. Give that one a try there to see if you are seeing a false high temp for the board. The old free home version of Everest was known for that problem as well as other temp reading programs.

Now I am curious. Can someone tell me where the pwm is located on my evga 790I ftw board? I read what it does and i would like to locate it so i can check to make sure i cool it down by adding a extra fan or make sure it is not blocked by something. Thanks.
