Hello,
Just got a new 620watt psu and I’m probably just worrying for no reason but is 48°C ok under load? And about 40°C idle?

For the PSU or for the CPU?
What is the make/model of the PSU and the CPU?

I know it's been marked solved, but how did you take those temps ? With a laser thermometer ?
If those are software readings, they mean nothing.
There is no thermal sensor on the psu that can be read by the MB, and if there was it would need to be read thru a data line seperate from the power cables.

I used an inferred thermometer Also, the temps did match up idle and under load with the reading of one of the sensors in speed fan i’m not sure what to make of that, the sensor is called remote 1 in speed fan any idea what it might be? or how to find out?
