Default [Question] Temperature

Hey guys, im not sure if my temperature is right, i also noticed that it doesnt show my cpu or gpu temp's

What im really worried about is this Diode 1, and what its coming from, how can i reduce the temperature?
EDIT- This is on idle as well.

HWMonitor reports a lot of false readings. Some of those sensors are not meant to be read, and when it attempts to do so, reports an incorrect reading.

I'd suggest only using the tools provided with the motherboard to monitor motherboard/system temperatures. For CPU temperatures, look into CoreTemp.

However you do have a Pentium D and those things run HOT. It's very possible that 78C is your CPU, but I cannot be certain. Have you opened up your PC recently? It could be clogged up with dust, or a fan may be dying/dead.

I would vote Everest over that to get a more accurate picture of what temps really are.

I'll second JD on the heat a D can put out.
I had one that was nothing short of a nuclear reactor in my case. Never could keep its temps under wraps , but never killed it either.

OK, well I am back with bad news.
The Diode 1 is my CPU just as you guys thought, Everest had the same CPU temperature reading as HWMonitor.
Just recently my pc just overheated and shut itself down, it did it 2 times. So I have cleaned my cpu heat sink ( I think its stock HFS) reapplied thermal compound. Still overheats and shuts down. So i got a massive fan, opened my pc case and made it blow air into it, still failed so i tried the fan taking air out and still failed.

Its almost summer here and its boiling hot. The others years that i had my pc during summer did not overheat.
I was also going to build a new rig and give this to my sister, but seeing it in this situation, i want to get it fixed before handing it to her.
So the only solution i could think of is buy a better HFS, but i dont know which one that supports LGA 775 socket. Should i buy a new cpu or HFS ?
H50/H70 cpu cooler ?

Are you currently running stock cooling?

How long do you intend to keep the Pentium D running?

If you are running stock, and just want a cheap replacement that will drop your temps down, the Coolermaster Hyper 212+ does a pretty good job, and here in North America can be picked up for around $25 CDN/USD.

Thanks for the quick reply,
Yes i think its a stock cooler, it has an intel fan on the HFS.
I usually leave my pc on overnight for downloads, no more than longer than 13 hours. my pc usaully takes like 8 hours when its off before i use it again.
It just started to shut itself down tonight.
Im currently using netbook , and sorry for my poor grammar and typos as i dont like the small keys on it.
I will search on about the cooler, if there is any other cpu cooler as equivalent to the one mentioned above, please do put it on this thread, so i can do a bit of research to see if they do sell them in australia.

EDIT
I just measured my current rig case and it is just smaller in width to support the size of CM Hyper 212+. If I the side panels touch the top of the 212+, will it affect the cpu cooling ?
Because i might just slightly jam it in.

I don't think you want anything touching the cooler IMO

HSF touching your case won't make any difference but you could easily bump the side of the case and then dislodge your HSF which equals bad.

And with that Pentium D I'd be using Coretemp to check your temps.


PSWhat is with noobs bumping over a month old threads.

I'm not bumping- the OP had a new post earlier today!
