G'day (yes I'm Aussie 8) )

I just built my first machine last Friday and noticed that my CPU temps Idle at around 22°C (71°F) and system temps are around 38C (100F). The CPU fan spins at about 430-460 RPM. Is this normal?

I'm thinking maybe my sensors are screwed, or something wrong with the motherboard.

Specs:

E4300 with stock HS/fan @ 1.8GHz (not OC yet).
Gigabyte DS3
1 GB RAM Samsung 667 MHz
Powercolor x1950 PRO
Cooler Master Centurion case
530 W Tagan PSU , 2 12v rails (20Amps each).


Thanks.

My temps at load are less then 100 degress fehrenheit. I love this processor.

Personally, I use Everest, a program from Lavalys. Gives a bunch of little information about your computer that you might like to know, that you might not have otherwise been aware of.

I just checked my temps again, it's running at a balmy 88 degrees fehrenhiet. Ambient temperatures are at about 60 degrees I'd say. Need a blanket to keep warm, I know that much.

Keep checking that Intel HSF every now and then.

They are noted to come away :roll: from MB/CPU

Thanks for the quick replies.

I just downloaded Intel Thermal Analysis Tool from this thread
http://forumz.tomshardware.com/hardware/Core-Duo-Temper...

This thing tells me the CPU is running @ 40°C. There has to be something wrong here.


Most poeople relies on Intel TAT or Core Temp since they are considered very accurate. You can download Core Temp from the following link and it should give you similar results as TAT.

Thanks. I just downloaded and tried Core temp, and it agrees with my motherboard software. See pic:

I've been noting a number of threads over tha past many weeks citing complaints regarding reversed or doubtful teperature indications from Gigabyte motherboards. As Gigabyte doesn't host a forum, you may have to search around a bit. Have you flashed the BIOS?
