Motherboard Apparent Heat Problem Tags: Motherboards Last response: May 7, 2012 4:29 PM in Motherboards Share sirdesancti May 7, 2012 3:23:05 PM OK so I just bought a new PC: http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/electronics-computer... And I was downloading my normal system tools when I opened Speccy, which is like CPUID HW: It read temperatures as follows: CPU- 35 degrees Celsius Motherboard- 70-90 degrees celsius (very hot) CPUID HW read: SYSTIN-28 degrees celsius CPUTIN- 88 degrees celsius AUXTIN- 72 degrees celsius TMPIN3-36 degrees celsius So far i am getting different responses depending on program: So i went into the bios, (which on ASUS's is very easy and you can use a mouse) BIOS stated the temps as: CPU: 87.8 Degrees FARENHEIGHT/ 31 degrees Celsius Motherboard: 73.4 degrees FARENHEIGHT/ 23. Degrees Celsius The heat sink fan is functioning (its the stock one) And the other fan towards the rear of the case is also running I have not noticed any performance lags, i dont think But i am afraid about the temps, what could be going on and why are the reportings different depending on program?
