- I obtained the cpu readings w/ Everest Ultimate Addition 4.2


Can somone tell me if my cpu or other components are functioning at normal temperature? This computer is about 1 year old, brand new to me, and it's running well. Occasionionally it's restarting for no reason. I'm wondering a couple of things:

  • Is it running hot?
  • I have added a multitracking soundcard, is this contributing to the problem? My old computer restarted suddenly as well.
  • Is the screwy memory from the person who owned the computer before me messing things up? They have four cards in the computer, 1 in each slot. 2x1GB DDR2-667 DDR2 SDRAM, and 2x512MB DDR2-533 DDR2 SDRAM

Anyhow, full specs on the temperture of teh computer, and my system summary are below. Any thoughts?

I'm not sure what software did you use to obtain the reading...

Your MCP temperature is a bit hot.. but still within the safe range (<60C)..

Your CPU core is quite low.. it should read somewhere around 1.25-1.35v

your +12v is really low (most probably the cause for your problem).. It should never get below 11.4v..

I'm not sure how accurate your software is but you might want to try using (borrowing from your friend perhaps?) other Power Supply first in your system to rule-out power issue...
