Healthy Temperatures for PSU's??? any utilities? any advice? 120 celcius!!!!!!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
ive looked everywhere and cant find a thread on temperatures for for PSU's.

are there utilities to check temperatures psu is currently running at?

120C seems horribly horribly high. but it runs well and has a well ventilated and huge fan, so why its giving that readout i dont know. im inclined tot hink the readout is unreliable, but i dont know.


My PSU is a good one that is very good for cooling as it comes with a very large fan with very deep and long blades.

the reason i am concerned is because this program is giving me this reading (and i have isolated the reading to be my power supply):

now, when i say "isolated the reading to be my power supply" i mean i have gone through every line of system info i could from sandra and everest. nothing else in terms of hdd, cpu, etc that is shown on those is that temp (or even within 60 degrees of it). also, there are no temperature readouts for psu's i could find.

also, the fan 3 in speed fan is the fan cooling the item running at 120C in speed fan. the fan 3 in speed fan is @1500rpm. the only other place i found a readout of a fan @ 1500 rpm was for the psu from sandra and everest.




now....what do i do? what utilities can i use to double check my psu temperature? air flow is good, cooling is good, fan is good, so i dont know.

psu is slightly hot tot he touch....but not 120C hot to the touch, lol. but i dont want it to be some tiny internal thing @ 120C and that will cost me more money.....

pleeease help

ill give you cookies and vodka

The Fact is if your Psu was at 120C your PC wouldnt be one and there would be a fire. Those programs seem to be misreading. As all of them seem to it sounds to me that perhaps the temp probe in your PSU is faulty.

However if you got an App for monitoring with your Asus Motherboardf i would use that.
