I just installed a new motherboard and i3 2100 (with stock cooler) with termal paste I applied myself ... not knowing if I applied correctly, I want to verify my temperatures ...

Currently after ~1hr usage ... nth much ... mainly programming stuff on Arch Linux ... my temperatures look like:

  1. acpitz-virtual-0
  2. Adapter: Virtual device
  3. temp1: +27.8°C (crit = +103.0°C)
  4. temp2: +29.8°C (crit = +103.0°C)
  5.  
  6. coretemp-isa-0000
  7. Adapter: ISA adapter
  8. Physical id 0: +45.0°C (high = +82.0°C, crit = +102.0°C)
  9. Core 0: +40.0°C (high = +82.0°C, crit = +102.0°C)
  10. Core 1: +43.0°C (high = +82.0°C, crit = +102.0°C)
  11.  
  12. radeon-pci-0100
  13. Adapter: PCI adapter
  14. temp1: +61.5°C


So CPU is ~45 degrees. GPU (ATI 56xx forgot model exactly) 61 degrees. Is this an ok temperature? Or do u suggest any other ways to test if my termal paste and HSF is installed correctly? Does ~1hr of low usage count? Exams are coming soon so I cant really play games for hours to just get high usage. I suppose if coolers are not installed right, I will know by now?

no, do something strenuous like games, intel burn test, or prime95.

Is it just idle? That's not too bad.

Its not idle, just not doing anything much, mainly development & school work. I'll try systester later ... running systester now. How long should I run it for and what temperatures should I expect when its done? Its risen to ~55 degrees now

Those temps are fine. My CPU stays at 42 in idle... goes to 54 in games

Ok just ran systester for ~30mins (didn't really time it, just an estimate) (~97% CPU usage), temps went up to around 61 degrees I suppose thats still fine?
