Idle temps

This question isn't so much about overclocking, but safe temps. I'm not overclocking but I am a little concerned at my temp readouts from speedfan. My CPU is an intel i5 750 quad (first gen) and GPU is an NVidia 465 gtx. I am pretty sure that 76c on the GPU is ok but I'm not really sure how to read the temps for the CPU. I see 31 or below on all 4 cores but the CPU temp says 72. CPU cooler is a Corsair H100. Any feedback is much appreciated and best answer will be picked as always. Thanks in advanced!

    I have never been a big fan of using Speedfan for temps. Try HWMonitor and Coretemp.

    I think Speedfan is reporting correctly and you should go by the cores. Those are great temps and in line with what I would expect from an H100.

    The GPU temps are a bit high but the GTX 465 was a very hot running card and that was one of the reasons the GTX 460 was so much more popular.

    Thanks a ton, I installed HWM and it is definitely easier to read than speedfan. I always assumed the core temps were the important part, but wasn't 100% sure since it was showing CPU at a much higher temp.

    Yea I know the 465 does run a little hot but it was decent price for performance at the time, at least I'm happy to know the temps aren't out of the range of normal.
  3. did you play with the speed fan setting ? uncheck the auto fan speed and under the fanspeeds panel leave max to 100 % und uncheck automatically variated and lok if you temp are getting lower
  4. well english is not my native language but i do my best to express myself correctly,and these where the speed fan settings you could use
