I'd like to get a second opinion on this issue:
I'm using SpeedFan to monitor the temps on my PC, and the CPU (1.5 Ghz Pent. 4) is idleing at 75c. If you run ANY program, or even browse folders, it goes to 80c. Under a real workload, it will max out at 90c. The CPU is approx. 4-5 years old, and has never been touched since it was first installed.
I'm considering replacing the CPU fan to see if that will make a differance, but it spinning at 3000 rpm, so there doesn't seem to be a problem there.
I'd like to know if anyone here has any other ideas on how to bring this temp down. It NEVER used to be that hot!
LOL, I have another PC, 2.9 Ghz Celeron, (WAAAY more power) and it idles at 40c; maxes out at 60c under heavy gaming! So it seems logical that my 1.5 Ghz computer should be just as cool, if not cooler than that.
Would love any help you can give!
