X2 3800+ Toledo good temp?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey, my grandma had her computer for a while. She got it a long time ago, about 3-4 years I believe and it had a 64 3800+ in it. About a year or two back I upgraded it to a X2 3800+ Toledo and today I was curious about the temps so I downloaded SpeedFan. I saw the symbol next to the Core Temp was fire so I was wondering is this OK? Ambient temp is 46C, Remote 1 is 56C, Remote 2 is 127C, HDD is 58C, and Core is 60C (On 90% load while Converting DVD to Zune). I know nothing about temps so I'm wondering isn't 60C a little high? It has the stock HS&F and a rear 80mm Fan. I've seen people on here talk about there Core 2 Duos at 2.6Ghz or so with about 50C full load!

First of all, ditch SpeedFan. It has long fallen out of favor, especially with AMD users. It needs substantial configuration just for it to work properly and return reasonably credible readings.

While I haven't used this in a long time (since I use Everest Ultimate), CoreTemp is a very good (and free, which Everest Ultimate isn't) CPU core temperature monitoring program. It works superbly with AMDs. Its reports are identical to Everest Ultimate, so I am quite confident with its credibility (there's nothing like corroboration of data and observation to vouch for accuracy of anything, in my opinion).

As far as what a "good temperature" is for specific CPU types, well, a good rule of thumb is that if the PC never slows down or stutters or throttles itself (slows itself down), it's operating in a good temperature range. If the system isn't overclocked and if the heatsink is being fed with enough air, there should be no problems whatsoever.

Hope this helps, and good luck!
