What temperature is your Motherboard sitting at??

Hi All,

What is considered normal for a motherboard to be sitting at??

I have an XFX 790i Ultra and PC wizard is reading the temp as 86C. Im not sure how accurate the temp actually is.

What do you all reckon??

cheers

Erm. My P5K Deluxe is currently at 46.5C. 86C seems to be just a little bit too high for a mobo temp. Is your case open? Is the board actually that hot? 86C is usually too hot to touch.

If it's not actually that hot, and I hope it ain't, could be a faulty sensor.

86C is hot, I'd be worried if that was real. Mine sits around 40-55C and the ambient air temperature here is about 30C.

My money is on the sensor being faulty, or the software reading it wrong.

Because that's very, very hot. If the machine is running fine and stable, then I'd be confident about that.

if it's crashing/hanging, then perhaps it speaks the truth.

My machine isn't overclocked, so I've never bothered installing such temp monitoring crap.

Actually, it's normally the software misreading the sensors. In my case, I need to watch temperature in my case as I don't have luxury of living in a sub-20C environment.

jeebus! they're all running hot - especially yours, caz67! I'd be seriously worried - to give you an example of whereabouts it should be, mine's running at 34c at present, that's whilst running my TV card, 2x browsers, etc etc....my system is also overclocked (from 3.00G to 3.84G)
whatever the case, your mobo should never run over 40c.
what monitoring software are you running?
does it say the same thing in the BIOS?
does your mobo actually feel hot, especially the N/B heatsink?

Hi,

Im using PC wizard 2008, so im not sure i should really trust it.

The BIOS has the MOBO at 36C at the moment- so i guess the software is not accurate.

The PC is freezing during gaming - very hot in there , so was just trying to isolate the problem.

The MOBO feels fine to the touch, NB is ok too..

The VID cards are running at around 55-60C so they are ok..

thanks for the feedback

Try SpeedFan (all free). Sounds like sofware misreading sensors which happens a lot.
