Is 59 degrees celcius too hot for a motherboard at a decent load?

Since the temperature increase in Ohio, my room has become the hottest in the house. Which is awesome, might I add.

I am running Neverwinter on my recently built computer and I noticed after playing for a couple hours, my motherboard had reached 59 degrees Celsius or 138 degrees Fahrenheit. I am wondering if that is too hot for a motherboard with a decent load running for a couple hours... Any ideas?

  1. It is not extreme, but I think that you should be concerned about your case cooling. 59 C is high and heat is the major source of component failure. I would recommend adding some additional fans, and barring that, looking at getting a better cooled case.

    Even at extended play, your mobo should not run more than 25 C hotter than ambient room temperature.

    All right, I appreciate your info. I believe my room was at least 95 F, which is 35 C, so if it was at 59 C, it was running about 25 C hotter than ambient room temperature. I was thinking about getting some better fans anyway, I just wanted to make sure I actually needed them. Thanks again! :sourire:
  3. Wow, your room is hot. Better get air conditioning.
