Everest shows this:

Motherboard 54 °C (129 °F)
Processor 54 °C (129 °F)
GPU 65 °C (149 °F)

Pentium D Dual core 3,20GHz.
2GB RAM
Geforce 8400GS.

Computer is idle.

Thanks

I don't now the normal temperature of an Intel Dual Core, but I have pentium 4, the worst speaking of temperature and the normal temp is 58C (idl), viewing a youtube video, it goes under 65-67

as I understand, the DualCore should be more cooler thet the single CPU, so perhaps its a little bit to high your temp on IDL.
If its a desktop computer, perhaps you should clean the dast. For me, doing it 2 times a year, help to cool the CPU temp about 3-5 degrees.

In the intel manuals, they say that the best temperature is beetween 45C-55C
with the temperatures upper 75-80 degrees, intel says that their processors become unsteble.

for the GPU, perhaps it will help if you say the name of the model^^

54 is like a bit high,
my idle processor temperature is around 42 to 48 somewhere.

pentium dual core too E5400.

OzzY, what temps do you get when the processor is under load?

Pentium dual core != Pentium D
Pentium dual core's are much cooler than Pentium D's.

My main concern right now is with GPU which is now 70°C while idle.

Is this normal?

I'll check the processor on heavy load later.

No, that's not normal. Try boosting the fan speed to around 100%.

In case you don't know how, open up the NVIDIA control panel(right click on the desktop and you'll see it). Then go into "device settings", It's under performance. In Cooling, change to "manual control" and set it between 90% and 100% then press apply.

Can't find this option. Sad

Also downloaded EVGA precision and fan level changing is disabled.

Any ideas?

Do you have the latest drivers?

i'm downloading NVIDIA System tools. Looks like it might have this option of cooling you talked about.

You could check BIOS settings. Some provide options for when fans run.

NVIDIA System tools has that option of cooling but it's grayed.

Only clock options are available.

i suppose overheating in a computer is a relativelly high temperature, like 90°C.

edfed: IIRC, most will go into SMM and force shutdown at 80°C.

My laptop will run up to 90°C. Any higher and it shuts down.

FWIW my laptop's ACPI hot temperature is 105°C and critical temperature is 107°C for Windows. If the CPU hits 105°C it initiates hibernation, if it hits 107°C then a brutish shutdown. If the ACPI didn't do anything then the CPU should shut down at ~125°C (core temperatures).

Anyway back to Ozzy, if your MB temperature is 54°C it sounds like there may be a problem with your case cooling. If the local ambient temperature inside the case is 54°C and the CPU is being cooled by that air at 54°C then your CPU will be around that temperature at idle plus it's own cooling requirement as will the other components. See if you can check the hard drive temperature, if that also shows >54°C then there is a lot more to worry about than the CPU/GPU.

You could check HDD temp with a utility test reads S.M.A.R.T. data.
