I have downloaded a program called Speed Fan, apparently a popular and trustworthy free temp testing program, and the 'Overdrive' section of my ATI Cataclyst Center for my video card monitors my video card temperature.
Video card reads:
65 degrees C average while playing a graphic intensive game
55 degrees C average when doing regular computer stuff
The temp sensors on Speedfan read average:
47C, -128c, and 37c on different sensors(?) for my 'Asus F8000'.
'HD0' is at 41C
'ACPI' at 40c
'Core' at 35c
I've no idea what these components are, I'm not hardware savvy.
What are the ideal temperatures for all these components? Are there some I shouldn't even consider?
I'm also confused by the *extremely* different readings that are all supposedly for the same component, the Asus F8000. I'm guessing the *negative* 128 C is a fluke.
