Solved True overheat or HWmonitor error ? Tags: Overheat CPUs Last response: March 7, 2014 9:44 AM in CPUs Share ChillaxedUpgrader March 7, 2014 9:06:04 AM Hi all Just got out of AC4 which I've just reinstalled. It was fine last time - pc handled it very well. But this time, HWMonitor reports that the cpu and motherboard maxed at 128 degrees C! I'm guessing if that had really happened I would have noticed burning smells and throttling... Was this just a glitch with HWMonitor? Thanks for any help.

I believe that is just a HWMonitor error. Share zeph_yr a b à CPUs March 7, 2014 9:15:22 AM A CPU will shut itself down past 90c, some even lower than that. Probably just an error. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer ChillaxedUpgrader March 7, 2014 9:44:39 AM Thanks guys. Agree it would have shut down... seems kind of obvious now... but the vents did feel exceptionally warm when I put a hand there, so I just wanted peace of mind.
