    Default Computer Temp.

    I was wondering for a computer tower what is the “normal” temperature operating range. And of course the limits you should let it past. I was asked this by my cousin and just wanted to find out.

    40C or so for Athlon 64 and X2
    45C for Intel Pentium 4 90nm (Northwoord, Prescott, Gallatin and variants) and Pentium D 90nm (Smithfield)
    35C for Intel Pentium 4 65nm (Cedar Mill) and Intel Pentium D 65nm (Presler)
    35C for Intel Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Extreme and about 42C for Intel Core 2 Quad

    Those are IDLE temperatures, not when they are on load.

    The motherboard temperature should be around 35C-45C

    Hard drive: 40-50C

    Video card:
    Geforce FX series: 85C max
    Geforce 6 series: 88C max (Core slowdown and throttling back at 100C)
    Geforce 7 series: 90C max (Core slowdown and throttling back at 115C)
    Radeon 9000 series: 90C max
    Radeon X100 series: 90C max, 85C for the X850 XT Platinum Edition
    Radeon X1000 series: 95C or so max

    Thanks for the Info. He has his computer in his garage where he produces music and sometimes it gets a little hot in there. And his computer is his life.

    Garage? I'd be more worried about rappid temperature changes, like when it goes from swetting to freezing in a few hours. Could crack something... unless you live in a pretty stable climate.

    There is also a damp issue when the weather is colder, and probably no air conditioning in the summer.

    I'm sure there are. You could look up some widgets for windows if you want it always available, otherwise I'm pretty sure that Everest Home Edition (see freeware thread) will tell you.

    I use "SpeedFan" to read the system temperatures (search for it on download.com or their homepage http://www.almico.com). It will display the temperature in the system tray if you want to leave it running, and it also displays a graph over time. It does a few other things as well, including setting the fan speed, but I only use it to read the temperature.
