Motherboard temperatures

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

got my pc up and running today - however, i am curious as to the temperatures of the cpu1 and cpu2

Mainboard - 44 degrees c
CPU1 - 58 degrees c
CPU 2 - 77 degrees c

How do i overcome this - i put a lot of paste on the cpu, and all fans are working properly.

Also, is this dangerous - what couls it lead to

Regards
Mark

first of all i dont believe you have two CPU, its most likely a miss reading. Second, puting a lot of paste will actually not work as effectivly as putting the right amount. Exactly how much did you put.

yes, a lot of paste is actually bad, you want a thin layer. If you used arctic silver, follow their directions on their website exactly.

If you are referring to the board in your user cp, it does not run 2 CPUs, so that must be a mis-read, use the ASUS probe to verify the correct temps, as if your CPU is running at 77, you have a problem.

How many case fans and what type do you have, 44c for that board seems high, doesn't the P5ND2-sli have the ASUS stack cool design, I wouldn;t expect it to go over 35-38 with good internal airflow.....

EDIT: just checked, it doesn't have stack cool, it has their fanless design.

yeah that mobo temp seems to be a little high at most, nothing to worry about i dont think

but get everest or speedfan, just some different program to monitor temps because somethings not right with that

Wow... first of all, you should only use about a BB-sized (pea-sized) drop right in the middle of your CPU, then mount your heatsink/fan. Place the heatsink/fan assembly straight down and the downforce of that will evenly spread the thermal compound.

If you are reusing cpu or heatsink/fan, before you reinstall it you should clean off any existing thermal pan/paste. Here's a copy&paste from articsilver's website for cleaning instuctions:

Thermal pads can be scraped off with a plastic tool that will not scratch the bottom then the remnants can be removed with a xylene based cleaner, (Goof Off and some carburetor cleaners) acetone, mineral spirits, or high-purity isopropyl alcohol.

Never use any oil or petroleum based cleaners (WD-40, citrus oil based cleaners and many automotive degreasers) on the base of a heatsink. The oil, which is engineered to not evaporate, will fill in the microscopic valleys in the metal and significantly reduce the effectiveness of any subsequently applied thermal compound.

If your heatsink has a thermal 'pad' mounted on it, this pad must be removed before using Arctic Silver thermal compound. Thermal pads are made with paraffin wax that melts once it gets hot. When it melts, it will fill in the microscopic valleys in the heatsink with wax. To minimize the permanent contamination of the mounting surface with wax, the thermal pad should be removed before it is used and melted. Never use heat or hot water to remove the pad, the heat will melt the wax into the heatsink.
Hope this helps out.

Hi mark1. Welcome to overclock.net.

Firstly, could you let us know what your ambient(room) temperature is?

As for your motherboard's temperature at 44, it sounds reasonable as the nforce4 chipset runs hotter than intel. Make sure you either have good airflow in your case (at least one fan at the front to suck air and one at the back as an exhaust) or place a 60mm fan over the northbride heatsink.

Now, for your cpu temps, listen to what the rest are telling you . Don't be shy to remove your heatsink and clean off all the thermal paste with a cloth and some spirit or alcohol. Make sure there's no thermal paste left on the heat sink and cpu heatspreader.

Then put a pea sized drop of artic silver on it. Don't forget to rotate the heatsink a little bit before pushing and locking the heat sink on the processor.

To solve the temperature reading problems you are having, just get the latest Asusprobe II software from the asus website and you'll be all set

Cheers
