Hello! I got a very strange noise with my CPU.
I don't know which part exactly, but the sounds is like a plane. Shocked

I'm worried if it could damage something.

Anyone?

Check your fans, either CPU cooler or PSU fan problem.

The sound stopped without doing anything.
It seems the cooler is working.

Do you know any software that could check the temperature?

speedfan can monitor temperatures and fan speeds. Google for it.

OK. I got the following readings:
Temp1 39C
Temp2 48C
Temp3 27C
HD0 47C
HD1 47C
Temp1 39C
Core 60C
Ambient 0C

Fan1 2312 RPM
Fan2 2009 RPM
Both fans changing a lot the RPMs.

I don't know much about hardware. But isn't the core temperature too high?

If you are not doing any heavy processing like F@H, SETI or P95 etc. then I would expect to see <45C for the CPU. Under heavy use you might get 60C-65C. What is your CPU Usage %?

Under heavy CPU usage the "Core" value always stays the same. But Temp1, Temp2 and Temp3 go to around 47C or less.

I don't know what the "Core" means, but it never gets any higher.

Core is the CPU. It would be strange for it not to change when the work load changes. If you run constantly at 100% CPU the temp will rise and level off after a minute or so. When you return to <1% the temp will fall again.

60C might not be correct though, some CPU's do give incorrect results, if you are unlucky. But if it is really 60C then it is running warm.

Under 50% CPU usage, the "Core" value stays the same.

When I click "configure", I can read this: "Label: Core | Chip: NVidia Video Card | Sensor: Core". Is it really the CPU? Or the program is just crazy?

On my system I get "Core 0 | INTEL CORE | CORE 0" and the same again for Core 1. I don't know why you see nVidia in the core reading.

One thing to try is cease all CPU loads and wait a couple of minutes for the temps to stabilise. Note down the temps. Then bring the CPU to 100% and watch the temps. Usually the fastest rising temp is the CPU.

BTW... I have a Pentium D. I've heard it's normal for this CPU to get hot.

Pentium D is dual core. You should see both temperatures in speedfan as Core 0 & Core 1. Something is not working properly.

Yes. I see only one "Core". I guess I should see "Core 0" and "Core 1".

I checked with Everest Ultimate Edition. The software was recommended by the store who sold this machine to me.
The program is shareware and looks trustful. It says the temperature for my CPU is 45ÂșC when using 20% of CPU.
I guess it's OK.

I think speedfan was not detecting my hardware.

Ozzy, please check to make sure the fan is plugged into the appropriate socket on the motherboard. As an example, on my motherboards, I routinely plug the fans into much more accessible sockets, which are NOT located on the motherboard, therefore, my temperature readings are worthless.
Second point: PLease download the free software Sisoft Sandra. It is the premier diagnostic software out there. It will provide a near infinite amount of data about your cpu and costs nothing.
Finally, depending on where you purchased your gear, you may well have a pirated, non-dual core cpu.
