Windows 7: CPU over TEmp error

CPU over TEmp error

I occasionally get a CPU over Temperature error, but I have yet to experience I force shut down of any kind, I used realTemp to check my cpu temps and I got these
Temperature
62 66 62 65
TJ max
38 34 38 35

in my thermal status it say
ok

and my load is usually less than 3.8%

am using an intel core i7 965, with stock heat sink, should I replace? is the error something to be worried about? or is it just a bios mis reading problem?

Your TJ max temps of 38 34 38 35 look very very low. Did you possibly mean distance to TJ max? Have you set the alarm temperature in settings yet?

Yea, sorry, it was distance to TJ Max. I'm not to clear on what that is, so I would wager unless it is automatically set, I doubt that I have.
Wow, I was looking at your temps and mine are usually a full 20 degrees over that, should I be concerned?

That would depend on the ambient temperature of the room that your computer is running in, what tasks your computer is performing is and how much hotter your i7 965 runs than my i7 930 does.



If you are concerned you can set an Alarm Temperature in the Real Temp GUI under 'settings'. The TJ Max for my processor is 100 degrees C so I have conservatively set it for 75 degrees C since I live in the Pacific Northwest and its only about 70 degrees Fahrenheit in the computer room.

Just for trial purposes,
Take the case off of the computer.
Put a floor/desk fan blowing directly in the direction of the CPU.

Watch your temperatures drop!

Also choose "balanced" in place of "High performance" for a power plan and watch the temps drop.

Wiredsoul- From what I've heard you don't need to be too concerned until the processor temperature gets to 90 degrees C and that's when karlsnooks' suggestions for cooling your computer down will really save the day.

BTW- How hot is it indoors where you are anyway?

Heat will influence performance and life-time of electronic components.

Remember-100 degrees C is the temperature of boiling water.

Visit the site of your CPU manufacturer and see what they have for a recommended operating temperature range.

Yes, and set the alarm temperature in the Real Temp program accordingly.

That should do for now, but as karlsnooks pointed out "heat will influence performance and life-time of electronic components" so its good to know that you have made some long term provisions to keep your computer running at low to moderate temperatures.
