I always put 8 degree offset on my 2500M/7900GTX. I never questioned it before. But couple of days ago a guy wrote this on this forum (read bellow), so can someone comment or clarify this for me?
"I hit 87C in Crysis, so you're doing damn good there. DON'T use an 8 degree offset in FanGUI. ATITool reports wrong temps. To prove this, put your system to sleep long enough for all components to reach room temperature. Resume the system and immediately bring up FanGUI. You'll see with an offset that the GPU is for some reason about 8 degrees higher, when everything should be at room temperature. If you have no offset and then resume, you'll see that your temps are nearly identical, which they should be from a cold start up."
That was after playing 25 minutes of Starcraft 2 Beta. I know SC2 is more CPU intensive so it's understandable that the CPU gets pretty hot, but is 82C too hot? That's the hottest I've seen it. My GPU was only 73C.
If it matters, the CPU is an i5-430M and I'm also using the Logitech N100 cooling pad (which doesn't really seem to help since the fan is just blowing at the metal cover rather than into the vents).
Would updating my BIOS make it run cooler? I just got the laptop about a week ago and I'm not entirely sure how to go about updating the BIOS.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 with pre-installed Windows Vista Home Basic. In my disk, I have already have 4 partitions, os, recovery, EISA configuration and a no name, drive letter 2.50GB partition. I want to create a new partition to store my private data. From pcworld tutorial
(http://www.pcworld.com/article/13207...in_vista.html), I made an unallocated space. However, I can't make it into a new simple volume. Windows says I have already reached maximum number of partitions allowed.
i just discovered this recently after running left 4 dead on my computer. every 5-10 min when playing the game, everything would slow down and become a slide show for about 10-20 seconds before returning back to normal. i assume this is because of my GPU/CPU becoming too hot and they were downclocked to prevent damage to the motherboard.
i usually leave my laptop on my desk, which is about 6 in. away from the window. lately, gpu temp has hit a low of 32 c, core temps of 16 c. i need to know if this is a dangerously low temperature to operate the computer. if i should move the desk or laptop or what.
I've owned my M1330 for a few months now, and have been very happy with it. But today, all of the sudden, things changed. I understand that a fan speeds up when a laptop gets hot, but this is not the case here.
All of the sudden today, this started happening: The fan is always on (around 3000rpm). However, the temperatures are usually low (CPU:38-50 , GPU:47-49). The laptop doesn't even get hot.
I've already cleaned the dust out of the the fans/vents, just in case.
I recently purchased a M170 with 6800 Ultra off ebay and have been using it for the past week or so. During this time, I have noticed that the temps get quite high when running graphic intensive applications. I currently have an e1705 with a 7900GTX installed so I am familiar with the heat dissipated from a high end graphics card but the M170 seems to get very hot in comparison to my e1705. I am not sure what are considered high temps so I will just post my readings from I8kfan (these are the peak temps):
i'd like to know what kind of temps to expect from a normally working card.
What are your temps on idle (normal room temp 20c-30c) and what are the max temp it reaches when say we run the ati tool graphical view. (Just for reference - when idle, ATI Tool reports 65c on my card, and after running the 3d view of ati tool the card will reach 104c).
I'd like everyone who has that info to post it here and i'll do the math and calculate the avarage working temp of that card.
Since different monitoring progs report different tempratures please state which program is reporting the temps.
Well people in my country is summer, and from some days (4-5 days) my Studio 1535 has annoying for me HDD and GPU temperatures.
I will attach old picture and current picture and you can compare the temperatures. Plus the fan stays on higher speed and it just don't want to turn itself back to normal light speed mode, I guess because high HDD and GPU temperatures.
my laptop's temperatures are reaching too high while playing games. i was playing burnout paradise and simultaneously hw monitor was also running. the max temp of both cores reached 89c and of gpu 91c and acpi was 94c. are these temperatures normal of are they too high??plz suggest me what to do...i have also attached the photo of the temperatures recorded....
When gaming, I noticed that the difference between my ACPI temps on mains VS on Battery are a bit of a concern...
For the first time last last night, it shut off on me which I guessed was the lovely overheating. Anyways I know my CPU and GPU temps are great and run very cool so it wasn't to do with GPU temps etc
The only difference when the machine shut off was I was gaming on Battery - So I ran some tests and found that there is a major difference between the ACPI temps when gaming on batt than when on mains.
Temps when gaming:
On Mains of ACPI (THM) = 71c max On Battery of ACPI (9 cell batt) = 100c +!
For info on other temps on load: CPU max = 60c GPU max = 72c
It's nothing to do with positioning of laptop etc as I ran the test in the same position. I'm running windows XP Pro too.
So, what causes such a massive diff in temps of the ACPI chipset comparing mains to on battery ? This is like an instant change when you pull out the mains (under load), so I've narrowed it down to batt vs mains!
Recently bought a E6400 with T9600 and intel GPU. See signature for more details. I'm running windows 7 x64.
My problem is that the fan goes on "high" very quickly in my opinon. It will stay like this until i stop surfing or doing stuff. If i stop it will go down until i start work again.
I wanted to check with others what kind of experience you got with the E6400 and the fan noise. I need to use headphones while working, and using the laptop in the sofa while the wife is watching tv is out of the question!
There is something wrong with the XPS M1530. Almost every owner seems to have overheating problems and those that don't may just not realise it. It seems to happen amongst gamers. Is the overheating because we're gaming 'too much'? Should the XPS M1530 be able to cope? I have so many questions because I'm having my share of overheating problems...something which I recently feel is unavoidable...
After owning my laptop for 8 months, I only just started to monitor the temperatures after I was getting huge drops in fps while gaming after a length of time as well as some artifacting.
On the 15/12/08 which is just over 2 weeks ago I had my motherboard and heatsink/fan replaced because of the following high temperatures I would get when playing games.
After, they were replaced I played some COD4 for 30 mins or so and got the following temperatures. When I saw these temps, I thought "Awesome, my temps are finally normal".
On the 22nd, 1 week after the replacement, I monitored my temperatures as I played TF2 for an hour. As you can see, there was a increase in my max temperatures and at this point, I wondered if maybe the temps will slowly become high again.
Another week later, yesterday on the 30th, I once again monitored my temps and played L4D for 20 mins or so to find that my temps have yet again risen but this time quite a bit more.
Alright so the question is, what the hec is going on with the XPS M1530 and why do the temperatures just keep going up even after getting a new motherboard and heatsink/fan!?!? Seriously, in just two weeks, my temps have risen by as much as 10 degrees celcius! Is this some kind of hardware failure or is this normal? Is it the thermal paste that's melting away or what? What could be going wrong?
long time PC user and I am trying to find out, with no success so far what would be safe temperatures for the cpu i7-3632QM and for the GPU HD7730. I am a bit fanatical about taking care of my PC's so this info is important to me.
I got these temperatures by running orthos to stress the cpu, and furmark to stress the gpu at the same time. Are these temperatures normal for an Acer Aspire 5920g? Cause I find these temperatures rather high, and I'm wondering if these are safe. I already have applied some artic silver 5 thermal compound to the both the gpu and the cpu.
My friends model Sony Vaio FZ (VGN-FZ17G) which is the exact same model as mine currently ran into a hardware problem with the GPU (NVIDIA 8400M GT) which is causing his computer to crash and has since turned the GPU off and is running on board graphics. Apparently its going to cost him about 1k (AUD) as its out of warranty to fix as they need to also replace the Motherboard.
He does play quite a few games on it unlike me which I use this computer mainly for design work.
This got me thinking since I've always told him my notebook always runs reasonably hot and thus the fan goes up and down loudly which he never really experienced nor ever complained about haha.
I've just installed the speedfan application
I've had this computer up running the entire day doing basic work like internet browsing/photo viewing and Photoshop usage. Currently its idling at
GPU 75C CORE1 70 CORE2 70
are these temperatures normal on the vaio FZ notebook models? what are yours?
these will only go higher when playing a video game such as Left 4 Dead or video rendering with Premiere Pro if these are just basic work temps and that's a bit worrying for me.
