Speedfan readout

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I did a couple searches on trying to figure out how to read the results from SpeedFan 4.27, but could not get a definitive answer, so I am posting this is hopes that someone with a similar setup and more experience might be able to assist (i am of course a noob).

Here is my read out:




So, following some advice and running prime95 while monitoring the temp and checking my bios, I noticed that Temp 3 is my CPU temperature.

However, I would like to know what Temp1, Temp2, and Temp3 represent. Needless to say, Temp1 and Temp2 are my biggest concerns.

I plan to overclock my machine so these high temps are a bit of concern.. a bit. =).

I'd also liek to note Temp2 and Temp3 have never changed since boot up. Temp1 is usually stable at 78C but can change to 77C or 80C.

I've left my machine on for a good several hours (of course restarting every once in a while, but it was never shutdown long enough for things to actually cool down) and nothing has fried yet. But i'd feel safer knowing.

Thanks for any help provided.

Temp 1 is the CPU and you need to cool it off. Temp 2 is the mainboard and you need to get that down as well. Those are pretty high. I dont know how your mainboard hasnt shutdown running at 127. It should have shutdown a long time ago. That cant be right.

Those temps ain't right! I mean, 127C.. you definately start smelling stuff (that's like 260F). Also, an HSF that keeps your CPU 50C below case temp? I want that one!

I agree, update, and download the correct settings for your MoBo

You sure you don't have any other program also reading the sensors (like teh_kurby suggested?) Sometimes these programs interfere with each other. Maybe there is a motherboard utility? I know that running ATITool causes Catalyst to report 20C on my video card (obviously wrong; ATITool reports a correct 45C)

Shish, I had to edit my reply because I got 2 more responses in the moment it took for me to hit reply and type. Love this forum =).

Thanks all. I downloaded 4.28, but the results have not changed. To be honest, I'm not 100% if some other monitoring tool may have been installed. Maybe with some of the drivers I installed for my motherboard.

Sigh. Looks like I'll need to go learn how to configure this monitoring tool before I start learning how to OC. =(

Oh well. =D time to get down and dirty.

Is there an montioring program that come with your motherboard or your motherboard's site maybe??
Edit No looks like you got no solution just yet.

I think you might actually be doing ok. I was thrown off by the high temps in the first screenshot, but taking a closer look I conclude the following:

Temp 1, 38C, is the CPU
Temp 3, 34C, is the Case

The other temp 1, and temp 2 are probably utter nonsense. If you touch your heatsink, does it feel hot? Also, check the readings in the BIOS. If they make sense compared to the temp 1 and 3, then keep these, and disable the other two in speedfan. At 127, your PC will soon look the one in my avatar...

Don't worry about the 127C, what you need to worry about is the 78C temperature, there's a possibility that is incorrect as well...

127C = False / Inexistant Sensor
78C = Possibly False / Inexistant Sensor
38C = CPU or Motherboard
34C = Motherboard or CPU

Get this program: http://www.lavalys.com/products/over...?pid=3&lang=en

And when you get it, go to Computer > Sensor, andit should tell you your temperatures.

My guess is the 38C is the CPU, 34C is the mobo and the others are errors. I get a -128C on my first temp... that's like N2 temp. If the one that's 38C starts climbing fast while gaming (for ex) you can be preety sure it's the CPU. The mobo temp should stay more or lesss constant, maybe a few degrees delta between idle and load.
