And again, unless you are using alternative cooling, or your room is in the low 60°F range, those CPU temperatures cannot be right.

What do you want me to do? Heat it up?...LOL
My room temp is probably around 20C, and no, I'm not using any extra cooling. Three fans: back, CPU, GPU.
Same reading from Everest, SpeedFan, and RightMark CPU Clock.

my 12v has been running that for the 3 plus years I have had this PSU
I am interested in what the OP has discovered once opening system up. Is it dusty and is the cpu fan turning slowly?

My room temp is probably around 20C

20°C = 68°F. That would be a pretty expensive air conditioner setting as typical room temperatures during summer months is closer to 75°F. I don't know how else to say this but it is impossible for your CPU to be cooler than your room. The fact all the monitor programs say the same thing simply suggests the sensor is bad. There's no such thing as wind-chill with non-living things. If your CPU is running, it is warmer than the room.

In Daly City, where are live, 20C is pretty warm (fog) :)
Must be bad sensor then.

I might as well put my 2 cents in again. I also agree with Digerti on the 18 degrees. I can't see how all those programs are reporting the same temp and be wrong.Broni, you must have your room really cold. The sensor will report room temperature when you first turn it on. It will go up slightly as the computer starts working. Air flow across the CPU and sensor will only decrease the temperature slightly. I don't care how much air flow you have across the sensor, the drop in temperature will only be slight.

OK guys, let's be serious now, since I let you thinking all night :)
Surely laws of physics applies in Daly City too.
I have my computer next to the window, which is usually slightly open.
Last night, the outside temp was below 60F, so I guess it explains.
I apologize for messing with your brains...hehehehe

I first thought you were in Southern California - but now I see you are further north and your highs are not expected to get out of the 60s - no need for AC. So I believe you.

alright so I have my tower on the floor opened and all and my CPU fan seems to be operating like its suppose to and not to much dust or anything anywhere. and since this is the first time I'm running my computer with it open this arises new questions I believe I'm looking at the bios chip and there's a orange light next to it what does that mean exactly and did crucial memory scan lie to me? I was thinking about upgrading my ram from 2 gigs to 4 gigs and I did the crucial scan it said I have four slots for ram each only able to contain 1 gig sticks of RAM well I'm looking there.there's only two slots for the sticks I can get two gig sticks but the scan each slot can only hold 1 so confusing

I went back through all the posts. I did not see (or missed) any info on make and model of computer we are talking about.

Can you download and install (from my signature) Everest.
Expand out computer on the left.
Click on summary.
Click on report up above.
Click on quick report- summary
Click on plain text.

Paste in all the info into the next post.
Do not include anything below Debug-PCI

With this info we will get a better idea of what you have regarding the board and ram slots.

Try downloading from mine.

Download and install EVEREST
Open it.
1: In left pane expand Computer folder.
2: Click once on Summary
3: In upper menu, go Report
4: And then to Quick Report-Summary
5: Save it in text file, and paste it in your next post.


DO NOT INCLUDE ANYTHING UNDER THE LINE THAT SAYS "DEBUG- PCI"
