    Default T__T Summer's almost here and the temperature's on the rise!



    Low, low CPU usage and temperatures are high.
    Noooooo.

    Ugh, it's getting cold for us down here though, and we're kinda thankful... (including my poor laptop, when i forced it onto its limits.... probably I shouldn't use ATiTool on it anymore..)

    ps: no, as in 1/2 of the country is happy too. We're getting rain at last... Australia needs more rain -.-

    Australia needs more rain in places that matter. We've just had some record rains, and not a drop of it has touched Sydney's water catchments.

    Even in the middle of Summer my CPU temperature idled at 39C-41C. Can't say the same for my case temp though, reaching between 45C and 49C... sometimes I question my motherboard's temperature readings.

    Well my CPU temperatures are at 41C, but that does not matter for only the core temperatures do. Plus, my E6600 is still at 25C/26C but the quad-core runs way hotter.

    I'm not sure that core temperatures are available on my motherboard, the placement of the thermostat is underneath the CPU socket I believe, or is there a way to measure it that I'm not aware of?

    Cheer up, Jyuu, at least way up there you don't have to worry about the outside temperature affecting your computer in the summer. =p

    http://www.thecoolest.zerobrains.com/CoreTemp/

    Basically for Core 2 (Allendale, Conroe, Merom and up) and AMD64.

    And try Intel Thermal Analysis Tool if you have a Yonah/Dothan. Intel TAT also works for every Intel CPU that have come out after Yonah but doesn't report more than two cores.

    I'll be away for a month in about 2 weeks. =D

    Can you suggest any program to monitor my laptop's CPU temperature..? I've found some, but I don't know wether they're accurate or not -_-

    I'm running a T7200 on a 945P chipset.
    Edit: Ah ok, I'll try those.
    Edit: Great, I think it works. It's reporting 19C on both cores right now (idle), and I guess that's normal..

    @MadDogMike
    It's been raining for about a week now... and it seems to continue on. Heck, some car dealer even posted "using recycled water" on the front of their yards..

    Just wait till Hungry Jack's (Burger King) start doing that....

    I wasn't actually aware that my CPU had that feature, thanks for the tip. Apparently my CPU's core is idling around 31C-33C, but when your animated sig is on the screen it jumps around between 33C and 38C. I wonder how it handles games...

    EDIT: Bah, CoreTemp had an exception error and closed, after less than two minutes.

    Definitely Core Temp and Intel TAT.

    Edit: The newest version of Speedfan also has core temperature monitoring.
