cpu temperature over limit?

when i launch a game, my cpu temperature hops to whooping 70 C, is this normal? While no programs are running, cpu temp goes down way to 27-30C. I checked Bios, but its it written the same there, 70C.

heres a shot of my cpu usage and temps... hmmm, should i get worried and take my pc for warranty check or is there any other solution?

  1. on yeah! that's over the limit! reattach the heatsink fan?
  2. Yeh thats a little to hot... reseat HSF and try again also try another temp monitor i hear intel's TAT is ok.
  3. As the others have said, your CPU cooler is most likely not-quite-fully attached, which is common with LGA775 CPUs. Check out this post, starting at step 2.5: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/194385-31-part-assembly#t1184072
  4. adomolis, you're running Core Temp 0.94 which is mis-identifying your E6750 as Tjunction Max 85c, when in fact the E6750 G0 Stepping is Tjunction Max 100c. Download Core Temp Beta 0.95.4 http://www.thecoolest.zerobrains.com/CoreTemp.

    It will correctly read the Cores as Tjunction Max 100c, which means that your Core temperatures may actually be peaking at 85c while Gaming, and would be even hotter during Prime95, possibly as hot as 95c Throttle threshold. As has been suggested, please double-check your CPU cooler to be certain that it is properly and securely attached.

    The Scale shown below is from the Core 2 Quad and Duo Temperature Guide http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/221745-29-core-quad-temperature-guide and shows Intel's Thermal Specifications for your Core 2 Duo E6750 G0 Stepping:

    Scale 1: Duo

    E6x50: Tcase Max 72c, G0 Stepping, Tjunction Max 100c, Vcore Max 1.350, TDP 65w, Delta 10c

    -Tcase/Tjunction-
    --70--/--80--80-- Hot
    --65--/--75--75-- Warm
    --60--/--70--70-- Safe
    --25--/--35--35-- Cool
