Default Temperature advice?

Hey guys. I have a couple of quick questions and hope to get some feedback on my system temps, please see my signature for system specs.

#1 - I'm wondering if I should be monitoring CPU temps based on core temps or CPUTIN?
#2 - What is normal for motherboard temps?

Please see attached screenshot and please note the Value column is my system idle with case on, Min is my system idle with a single side panel off, and Max is my system with case on after running Crysis benchmark for 20 loops.

Please let me know if you think these are okay I'm worried about my GPU and motherboard temps mostly.



Thanks in advance.

Use Realtemp or Coretemp for your temps, they are more accurate. And the core temps are what you want to be looking at.

You have a couple of fans showing 0 as minimum speeds. If they are controlled by speedfan or the like, I'd ramp up the speeds. Some of your temps are on the edge of my personal comfort zone.

I used CPUID Hardware Monitor because it shows more then just CPU information. If I run the same tests with Core Temp and Real Temp the results are usually that Core Temp and Real Temp show the CPU cores to be 2-3 degrees cooler than CPUID Hardware Monitor. Since CPUID Hardware Monitor always shows slightly higher values I'd rather use that since when it comes to temps I'd rather it give results a little on the high side then on the low side.

As for the fans, they never stop moving but occasionally show 0rpm for some reason.

Which temps are at the edge of your personal comfort zone, any suggestions?

Those core temps are somehow high if you're in idle but are perfect fine during Crysis.
Also your idle GPU temps are OK and during Crysis the same.
MB temps are OK too.
Summing up you're fine. :)
What's your ambient room temperature?

Room temp is somewhere between 22-26 degrees.
