New Cpu temps

Hewlett-packard / A1709N
January 2, 2009 at 10:21:10
Specs: Vista Home Premium 32 bit, Athlon 64x2 5000+ / 3GB
just installed a new dual core, been lookin at the temps. Everest reports the cpu gettin towards 60C under about 10min of load. But it reports both cores(seperately) at around 40C. I think 65 is around max right? Which temps should i b trusting?

EDIT: Also, the fan that came with it has a 4 pin connector while the corresponding spot on my board only has 3 pins. I assumed the 4th was optional, the fan is spinning. Is this ok? (BIOS is junk no features).

you have a stock fan? i know this isn't quite addressing your question, but you probably don't want to have your cpu running that hot.
i'd say stay on the safe side and go with the 60c. wait for another response though...

You need a tie breaker. Check the temp readings in the BIOS. Also try Core Temp:

no type of hardware monitoring in bios. Coretemp displays the temps of my 2 cores only and theyre about 2 degrees lower than everest. PC seems to be running fine. I just played a game for about half hour and i don't think the higher temp in everest went above 60.

encoding a dvd and everest is reporting the cpu at 68C ouch... I wonder if I installed the heatsink badly? It kinda slid around a bit when i was tryin to lock it in. My first cpu installation.. Also the fan is running at 1200 rpms is that normal or should it be higher? any suggestions would be helpful. And jam u r awesome lol.

Hello,

Okay, if i were you, and the fan is installed
correctly, then use the Bios. Reason being conroe based CPU's still run much cooler than the old prescott,northwood,or willy
based pentium 4's I've built and repaired many computers and yes core temp and the new
speed fan are fine programs, but for most
computers nowadays they show much higher
temps than the old school way of showing
temps causing much stress and worry.
Make sure the fan is installed correctly,
Use the Bios or the old temp sensors
based on the motherboard. I am using a conroe
based computer right now and the motherboard
sensor says 85F and the case is very cool
much cooler than my 2.8GHz presHOT P-4.
So don't stress about the core.
