Motherboard Temperatures

Posted 27 September 2011 - 11:04 AM

Hello Everybody,
Could anybody till me what are optimal temperatures for motherboard in idle state?
Because I have been having issues with PC lately and checked every hardware component and couldnt find issue.
However today I found in BIOS that my motherboard has been running at 50C and Im not sure if it is really okay for idle state. I looked into manual and googled but I couldnt find anything about temps. Model is Asus P5E3 Workstation Professional.
Thanks in advance.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Are you talking about the various bridges on your motherboard, or the processor's operating temperature?

Well in bios there were two temps: CPU temperature and MB temperature Im talking about second one. User guide says it is "motherboard temperature"

Is the CPU temperature normal, or does it only seem to be the motherboard?

Also does the manual by any chance tell you were the temperature sensor is, as some places can get a lot hotter than others?

Cpu temp is 53C which I think is Okay for Core 2 duo and I already tried to search in the manual as for where is the sensor but I couldnt find it in there.

Have you tried using another temperature monitor inside of Windows, rather than just looking in the bios. If not have at look here, and see if the temperatures are still high. Could be that for some reason the bios is reporting the incorrect temperatures (although I haven't heard of that myself before).

Well actually it seems it is only 47C which I still think is really high. So no major differences between bios and Windows

Well I just had a look at my motherboard temps, mine range from 32C to 42C (the latter being right next to my graphics card so its no surprise)

To be honest I too think that 47C is on the hot side, but I can't suggest why that is. The only thing I can really say is that if you are worried about it, and think that it is causing you problems, then maybe install some more case fans and so what difference that makes. You might also want to run some stress tests to see how high it actually goes. If it stays below the 60C mark, then I don't think that it would be causing any actual problems. Some computers run hot, some don't.

Good luck

Well it has been mostly sudden resetting of graphics card from windows driver when playing one relatively low requirment game ( League of legends if you want name) card is Nvidia GTX570 drivers are correctly installed. Also this issue was present on my old 9600GT. Also windows once started suddenly to get BSODing with error code for hardware failure nut reainstall fixed it. And also today my stable overclock failed to boot up, with bios stopping at post saying Overclock Failed press F1 to enter setup and reset configuration. Memtest was run few times, Memory is Fine. Also now Im running at stock configurtion.

Well if you are overclocking then surely you shouldn't be surprised about the high temperatures. Have you actually tried to reset all clocks/voltages to default, and see if the problem still exists?

It failed too boot up with overclock and now it is on stock.
Also for the fans issue I have tha case fan capped

EDIT: Also another thing that worries me is that CPUID shows three sensors:
SYSTIN - 46-48C
CPUTIN - 39C
AUXTIN - 119C -> this is what worries me it stays still on 119 so it could be disconnected and shows default value but im not sure

Well to be honest then the temperatures/ errors you are getting could be caused by hundreds of different factors. You are just going to have to stick it out and see if it settles down.

If not and you keep getting hardware failures, run chkdsk to see if you have any bad sectors, or if the boot sector is corrupted. Then report back if you are having any more problems.

I have to ask - do you have enough power for your rig? A big enough power supply? All the right plugs plugged in? You are not skimping on two plugs for a videocard and using one? All the power rails in on the board are set?

Well Windows is cleanly installed from today because Messaed up previous install and Ive run chkdsk and no failures there so we shall see if it settles down (hopefully).
