Hey all, me again! My girlfriends using a program called SpeedFan to check the temperatures of her computer, Because lately her computer has felt slower processing applications, playing games, minusing down from game and loading.
We figured it might be an overheat problem, so we downloaded SpeedFan, and results currently are:
Considering you have four cores it seems right that your computer shows 4 temperatures which is common.
You can also get a program that checks only the cpu temp if you would like to confirm that.
At 40C a gpu would indeed feel quite hot to the touch but that really isn't that dangerous of a zone so I doubt it would be any problem at all.
I am a little skeptical on my own theory since I don't commonly see cores vary in temp so much so a check with something like http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/ which I use would help make sure I am not full of hot air
Could we also get which gpu you are running, I don't see it in the op.
Now I am going to throw another request out and see how hot the psu is getting to make sure it is venting properly.
Also a gpu can run fine as long as it is under 80C just fine since they are made to be at a temperature higher than that of a processor. I also like to keep my processor max at 60 so they really aren't overheating to a point which is excessive anyways.
Possibly the problem isn't one with the hardware but the software, have you checked for any processes that shouldn't be there or not needed as well as doing some full system scans?
