    Default Is the CPU too hot?

    My computer specs are as follows:
    OSes: Windows XP Pro
    Motherboard: ASUS P5ND2-SLI
    Processor: Intel Pentium D 830 3.0GHz (not overclocked)
    Hard Drive: 250GB SATA
    RAM: 2x 512MB DDR 667MHz
    Video Card: ATI Radeon X1300 PRO
    Optical Drive: Pioneer DVR-110D DVD-RW
    USB: 4x USB 2.0
    Sound Card: 7.1 Channel
    Ethernet Adapter: Intel 10/100/1000 Gigabit
    I dont know but I think my Pentium D 830 is too hot. Upon startup
    (after being left off for about 10 hours), the CPU temperature is
    around 45C (celsius) and steadily rises to about 70C. Even when I'm
    not doing anything on the computer the temperature varies from 70C -
    75C. When I am doing stuff, playing games, browsing the net, etc. the
    temperature is around 75C - 81C. When I am doing big multitasking, the
    temperature varies from 81C -86C. Is this normal? I know Pentium D
    chips are hot but are they supposed to be this hot?

    it's too hot, there are several options to pursue here,

    • check for dust build up in all cooling/exhaust fans (clean as required)

    • check your case airflow (the more airflow the better the cooling)

    • Check your case location (is it well ventilated area or jammed in an enclosed space)

    • If none of the above make any appreciable difference reseat your cpu cooler (use top quality thermal compound such as Arctic Silver 5)

    Um ur cpu should never exceed 60 degrees celcius and your core temps should never exceed 80.

    Um, while responding to 7 month old posts with little to now helpful information is not a helpful thing to do, those CPU's ran stupidly hot hence their quick death to the world of being discontinued.
