Default pc over heating - (program using - speedfan)


i just downloaded speed fan since ive been having a few times where my monitor has gone black on me and i thought it may be fan related

well have a look at this


do you think its 2 high

i have 1 fan at the side , 3 small gaps at the front (NO FAN)

and 2 fans at the back to blow out air

but this temp is from being on for 3 hours and just on the internet

do you think i need to look into some cooling down system

50C is not too bad. but get a real program like HWmonitor and tell us what that says for your CPU and GPU.


The only thing ATi can render faster than nVidia is the BSOD

As a previous poster stated, use a different program, as speedfan, for a long time now, has shown very incorrect data reguarding temps and fan speeds.

I recommend HWMonitor from cpuid.com

turned my PC on straight away and downloaded hmmoniter

heres the link:


but how if ive just turned my pc on how can my cpu be 60c !!!

my fan is also at 1467 but can run up to - 2200 rpm (i think) - so does this show everything is ok?

( i also ran speed fan at the same time and got the same results)

but surley when i turn my pc on it cant go straight to 60c

any idea

is my pc over heating or not -- (its done me well for 5 years)
