  1. You could try -

    Everest home ed or
    Everest Ultimate ed

    They show some other temps also.
    I use them for checking the temps in my systems.
  2. OK thanks.
    Is 57c hot for a 6600.
  3. If that's after playing a game or running something graphics intensive, that's a good temp.

    Idle, a little hot. Needs cooling.
  4. I use the old fashion way...


    step one...

    stick out hand...

    step two...

    reach behind computer...

    step three...

    feel the heat of the exhaust...

    All done!!! :wink:
  5. :lol:

    I use both.

    The old fashioned method doesn't show warm areas or dead spots within the case.
  6. stick finger in fan to see if it is spinning.

    Repeat until you've figured out if it's spinning, or you have no fingers left, whichever comes first.
  8. I just downloaded Everest Home ed..

    under the sensors tab there is, Motherboard, Aux, Hardrive.

    Is 'Aux' the graphic card? What does it stand for?

    if it is, i'm in idle and it's freaking 59c... but i think i know y: my card is fanless.

    If the fan is a Tornado, then it should take about .005 seconds to mulch your pinkies. :wink: They hurt, i've taken chunks off my knuckles, by getting a smidgeon too close. 8O
  10. eh... does 'Aux' refers to the graphic card

    I don't know, as AUX doesn't show up in Everest for me. I'm using version 2.0 Mine shows :

    Motherboard 29 °C (84 °F)
    CPU 47 °C (117 °F)
    GPU 52 °C (126 °F)
    GPU Ambient 35 °C (95 °F)
    Hitachi HDS722525VLAT80 36 °C (97 °F)
    WDC WD800JB-00JJA0 32 °C (90 °F)


    That's it. :?
