Hey there,

 

CPU temperature is at around 60 Celsius (58-62) with partial load and goes up to 68 (possibly more) when gaming.

 

A few facts:

  • I haven't had a system crash/hang due to temperature, but I don't know if I should be worried about my temperatures.
  • It's summertime over here and room temperature can get up to 33 Celsius.
  • I've recently had my PC repaired due to a faulty PSU and the repairman wasn't bothered by anything else in my PC (it seemed fine, but didn't ask him about the temperature.)
  • I've got an AMD Phenom II x4 955 CPU with an upgraded fan.

 

 

I've attached a screenshot of my speedfan readings.

 

Do you think I might have a problem? If yes, what should I do?

Nah 60C and max of ~70C when gaming is perfectly okay. I wouldn't worry about it unless it was idling up in the high 80s to 90s and maxing out at over 100 while gaming. You are good!

DeimosChaos, thank you very much! I guess I was kinda paranoid about the temps. Your expert insight made my day :)

 

Rocky Bennett, sorry about the screenshot, I guess I'm kinda noob for failing to post a screenshot, lol.

 

Anyways, thank you so much. It must be great when something as simple as a two-line post can help someone so much.

 

Cheers!

No problem!

 

FYI - To post a screen shot you have to use an external site to host it and then post that link here.

Oh I see, so like that? https://postimg.org/image/yfbv349u9/

 

That's a screenshot I took right now, after nearly an hour of partial use (firefox, MS word, skype etc). House temperature is at 32C right now.

Yup just like that!

 

Not sure why your speedfan has the core temps all mixed around, and the lower temp ones have a "fire" status on them. I'd say you are fine though. You could always take the cpu off the board and clean then re-apply thermal paste. May help the temps some, but hard to say.

Thanks for checking my screenshot out! CPUID HWMonitor shows pretty much the same stuff.

 

I've got absolutely no performance issues (no hangups, no weird fan sounds etc), so perhaps I should not tamper with the CPU, trying to fix something that's not broken. If temps get worse over time, or if I experience any issues, I will take off the fan and reapply the paste. (Never actually taken the CPU out, just the fan to clean it and reapply paste, and once to replace it.)

 

EDIT: By the way, how "should" SpeedFan look? My wife's speedfan looks even wonkier than mine, but I have nothing else to compare it with!
