Hi.

I currently updated my cpu from AMD 3500 to AMD 4200.
Also updated my fan and heatsink from OEM to a Zalman CNPS9500 LED 92mm 2 Ball Cooling Fan with Heat Sink.
The Fan came with a Fan mate 2, which I have on full. Total cost of upgrade on 939 Mother Board was $139.82.
The software program I use to adjust the 2 fans is SpeedFan 4.32.
The Temperatures are in Celsius.

Ambient: 38
Remote 1: 39
Remote 2: 119 <--- Is this too high?
HD0: 39
Core: 26 <-> 38 Range.

Is remote 2 in the same units as the others? 119.00 Fahrenheit is 48.33 Celsius, but 119.00 Celsius is 246.20 Fahrenheit which is way too hot. :whistling:

The high temperature indicates to a sensor that does not exist. Are these Speedfan readings? Download Everest from the list of programs below and run it on Computer > Sensor. Please quote here the temperatures.

That Remote 2, adjusts the fan speed for cpu fan, but the temp 117 is way out there. When I took the computer apart, it did not feel hot.
That temp must be non existant. Anyways I dl'ed the Everest program and here is the results.

Those look a lot better. Apparently the software program is not reporting the CPU temp because it's not reading the CPU sensor.

My apologies for posting here, since there is already Major Payne helping Soul Bleed.
So sorry to both of you, but this program may help, it's a 30 day trial before you buy.
So it can be tested to see if it makes a difference in heat and performance.

I have nothing to do with the program for profit, just helping out if possible.

It explains itself on it's website.

Carry on. Thanks.

For CPUs: CPU Maximum Temperatures. If the temps reported now are at at max fan speeds, I would think you would not like them to get into the mid 40's at light to medium loads. If fan speeds are at slow or mid speeds at the temps reported, you probably will not have much of a rise when they kick into high. A lot depends on ambient temp in PC room, whether or not you have unrestricted airflow from PC surroundings, etc..

Check out this for more info: How hot is too hot?.
