Hi
I have installed this softwares to find out my processor's temperature and this is what they are showing

It's obvious I think that "CPU" temperature showed in SpeedFan isn't the CPU's temperature, it's something else. Do you know what component's temperature is?

Hi andrei

Welcome to BleepingComputer.

What makes you think that the temp is not that of the CPU? While 56ēC is maybe not ideal, it is not excessively hot. (Perhaps you were not aware that computer temps are globally measured in deg Celsius).

Excessive dust on the inside of the case and on heatsinks and fans can cause heat buildup which will reduce the life of electronic components. It is recommended to clean these up yearly

Let us know how you go.

Cheers

I agree with Rob, I've found the majority of systems I have messed with with those sorts of temperatures. A quick clean of the heatsink and they dropped around 10 degrees.
Regards,

Alan.

Thanks for your posts, but if you look at what temperature is showing Coretemp for CPU you will see why I'm saying that Speedfan's "CPU" must be the temperature for another component.

That is strange, I would use http://www.cpuid.com/hwmonitor.php to see if there are differences.

I have installed Hardware Monitor and I saw that "CPUTIN" temperature is the same witht "CPU" from Speedfan. Now I don't know what is CPUTIN :thumbsup:

CPUTIN is just another sensor on the motherboard from what I can remember. If two tools are confirming one temperature, then it is most likely the actual temperature.

Alan.
