I need some help. I just recently built a new PC and I'm wanting to know a safe temperature range for it. I tried googling it but I couldn't really find anything so I thought I'd just ask around in here.

Temperatures right now while idle:
CPU - 47c
System - 48c
nForce - 58c
GPU - 64c

I got this information from the nvidia monitorview.

  1. Without system specs it like asking a blind man what color your car is.

    Might want to post those.
  2. Oh really? I didn't know that mattered.

    I have an AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ 3.0ghz cpu, EVGA GeForce 8800 gts 640mb gpu, and an EVGA nforce 590 sli mobo (model 122-M2-NF59-TR). Not sure if you need my other specs but I also have two 1 gig crucial ballistix sticks of memory, a cooler master centurion case, an antec true power trio 650w psu, a Western Digital sata2 250g hdd, and a sony dvd rom.
  3. You can see my specs below. I run at about 47C on my CPU and in my case. And I have it OCed to 2.5GHz. It's probably around 35C at stock speed.
  4. Ya, each component has its own opertating range. As long as you keep them in the range and / or as cool as possible you should be good.

    Here is a link that includes the max operating temp for your CPU:


    Your at 47 do your good on the CPU.

    I'll see what I can find for the other parts when I can (at work right now), unless someone else does first
