What is your definition of overheating? What temperature is it at now? Celerons don't get particularly hot.

What is your definition of overheating?


Well, I just saw flame in Speedfan, that is why I am a little concerned.

Temp 1: flame 51c
Temp 2: 41c
Temp 3: 40c
HD: 40c

I have a question here.

I have 2 case fans , both of them in a working condition.But why does Speedfan show only one~ Fan 1: 2679 RPM, FAN 2: 0 RPM

51°C is fine. I recommend changing the alarm threshold to 60°C.

The only way Speedfan can monitor a fan is if the fan is connected to a monitored connection on the motherboard. If your 2nd fan is connected directly to the PSU, or to an unmonitored connector, it will not show up in Speedfan, or any monitoring program.
