2 Questions about cpu temps & fan speed monitoring

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm currently using a Gigabyte H55M motherboard, and in the bios, I found some settings that allow me to create a limit for the maximum temps for gpu, cpu and also warnings on fan failure etc.

(1 Im dual booting with XP and Ubuntu 10.04, and im wondering, if the temps were to exceed my limit, or something were to go wrong, would I hear some sort of beeping sound from my internal computer speaker?

(2 Second question, Id like a program that will automatically shut off my computer if temps were to rise above my posted limit (in case im out, but my computer was still running) Does a program like that even exsist?

There is a program called core temp that has a emergency shut down limit you can setup.

If you have your bios set to alarm, then it should just make a loud annoying beeping sound or something.

Yes, most monitoring programs will provide both a visual and audible warning.

As for shutting down on CPU heat level, that's built into all (for at least the last 10 years) AMD (shuts down) and Intel (throttles down) CPUs. No need for any other programs.

Thanks, thats exactly what I was looking for! Not that I think my computer will ever get to 105c TJ max, but if for some odd reason im out and leave my computer on and does start to overheat, I dont even want it to reach that temp!

btw off subject, but nice Skyline

Glad that is what you need. I have it just incase my water pump stops working, it is set to shutdown at 55c. so it is well below any time that will damage my chip.

I love skylines. The R34 is my dream car.
I don't have one. But I know exactly what I want.

I am only 20 and I drive a 94 bravada right now.
good car for the snow.
