Hi all,

I was just curious on what a good range of temperature is for a AMD 64 3200 chip in Celius. What should be the temp I should be running and what would be the temp that I should start to worry.

Thanks

Anything under 70 Celsius load is acceptable, anything under 60C load is fine, anything under 50C load is cool, anything under 40C load is watercooling or a cold room.

Remember that sensors tend to lie, so the most important thing is stability. If it's stable, it's not too hot.

CPU @ 0% (No OC) should be between 30C and 40C.
CPU @ 100% (No OC) / CPU @ 0% (OCed) should be between 40C and 50C.
CPU @ 100% (OCed) whould be between 50C and 60C.

Mine is 59C right now.

Excellent 38-48 degs C
Good 46-56
O.K. 56-66
Over 66 needs better cooling.

Thanks Guys,

I run that Core Centre from MSI plus I got all BIOS updates etc.

Is the Core Centre Program pretty good? It usually reads my CPU as 41C

Thanks again

Since I don't see the need to start a new thread since my question can fit under this thread's category! (sorry Zodiaczz for hijacking your thread)

When I first got my syster up and running, my temps were:

CPU: 30-35C Idle 35-40 Load
System: 30-35 both Idle and Load

My system now runs at:

CPU: 40-45 Idle 45-50 Load
System: 35C Idle 40C Load

Now it runs fine don't notice that much instability. Well, correction, any instability at all. Now, I don't think TOO much of the temperature change. I mean, I got the system in January (45F average temp) and it's now June (70F degree average) so it's expected!

BUT

I have Hardware Doctor installed. It alerts me when the temps get over their limits. When I set it up the high limits were set to 40C for system, 55C for CPU. Now my temps are approaching them, and I'm getting an alarm going off, crashing my games, and waking me up at night

My question is....

Is it ok to raise the high limits on this program? I'm not ganna worry unless my system starts crashing from heat, or my processor gets above 60C. BUT my system temperature is what worries me. Its getting at 40C, which makes me kinda nervous. When it says system, is it talking about my chipset, or the temp inside my case? Either way, how high can it get?

If you see instability like games crashing, then you got a real temp. problem... How many case fans you have and what HSF you using on the CPU, if things start to go wrong on your computer and if your temps are around that much, You do have a heat problem. Never use a Retail HSF, most of the time, they really don't do their job, spend the money and get a good one, its worth the stability. Also, make sure that you keep the computer in one of the coolest rooms in the house... Did a prime 95 torture test on my computer which is located in my basement and its never gone over 45 Degrees C!!!!!!!!! Probley get it under 40 if I use a real good HSF but im using one of those retail ones (I swear they underclocked this processor)

Ummmm.... ok? Yes I have a non retail, but my temps are fine on the CPU for 80 degree weather and a 90 degree room. I can't put it in the coolest room in the house, because the entire point of buying my own computer and now getting internet on it tomorrow (IF FEDEX STOPS BEING STUPID) is to that I can have a computer in MY room, so I don't want to move it. I have 2 case fans, one on the side intake, one on the back extake. Its pretty dusty, I've already put an order for compressed air in with my parents, so I'm waiting on that too

The system temp is what I am wondering. Does anyone know how high the system temp can get is what I really want to know. Is there a point it starts messing with the HD, MB, and other parts?
