How do i tell what each of the Temp Are? This is what im getting on my screen.



Temp 1,2 and 3 dont really mean much lol.

And also after i play games Temp 2 goes up to about 53*C and a little fire symbol appears next to it!

Does that mean its overheating and ive overclocked it to far?

Thanks for any help..

Welome to the forums!

Temp 1 is case temp, Temp 2 is your CPU, and I don't know what 3 is. The flames are just a warning, I would ignore them unless your CPU gets over 60*C.

What kind of overclock did you get?

ok cheers, was asking you something under a different user name yesterday so thanks for that aswell. ....

anyway CPU was at 1900. Overclocked it to 2.2GHZ but when i was playing games for some reason it kept crashing to the desktop? I thought it must have been an overheating problem but my CPU temp was only 53-54'ish after playing games then dropping down to 50'ish doing nothing. So dont know what the problem was there. Anyway im running at 2.15GHZ at the min everything seems ok but wanted to try and get 300-400Mhz overclocked as 250 isnt really going to give me any benefits.

. And thats unoverclocked. Shouldnt be that high should it?

thats bad! u should stay under 55* load. maybe ure voltage is too high, and making it really hot. also is the heatsink a good one?

just FYI temp 3 is northbridge.

Temp 1 Case/Chipset
Temp 2 CPU
Temp 3 PWMIC Temps (your mobo probably doesnt have this sensor thats why the temp is all screwed up)

I've check back to back with my other temp monitoring software and thats how it read... (BTW my mobo does have a PWMIC sensor, so it reads it correctly)

PWM is the circuit on your motherboard the supplies all the voltages, vdimm, vcore, etc.

so if my temps 60'ish full load when not overclocked, is it not safe to overclock my cpu by 300-400mhz as this will raise the temps more?

Have Overclocked the processor 8% and the average temp at full load is around 63*C. Highest it went up to was 69*C but stayed mostly between 60-65*C. Im want to overclock it to around 13%. Is it ok to be using my computer at those temps or are they to high. Im not getting any sort of errors like crashes or anything either.

Well, from what I have seen, that is not good temps to be running at. I would lower the CPU voltage to about 1.575 and the see if you can get under 59*C.

There should be a option somewhere in your BIOS.

how is 1.6 lower than 1.575?

lol....i ment 1.6 instead of 1.575, because going down too much will screw up OC
sorry
