what is the normal acceptable temp for the CPU and the MoBo?

I think I am running a little warm and have been running at about 115 F for the CPU and around 90 F for the MoBo.

I am wanting to OC it but at these temps I am not sure if it is feasable. I have got the latest and best drivers for all my components, but I still have been freezing up. Only thing I can think of is that my CPU is getting too hot.

the MoBo is an ASUS CUV4X with BIOS revision 1007 there is a v 1008 and 1009 available. Is it worth the effort to flash it again? What could I gain from it?

thx for the help

I am the one ?

I am INTEL boy , and also good one , with PIII 1000 , and on the way the ASUS TUSL2-C :)

Do you have boxed heatsing or what ?

so can anyone tell me what the temp should be in Farenheit degrees?

11-13-01, 10:52 PM
107,64 F is a good temp in full load .

If you have the boxed heatsing and fan, for sure you need a better fan , because the standart INTEL is kinda slow in rpm .

what? you are saying over 10,000 degrees.

I am not a genious but I know that won't be suitable

my CPU fan runs at 5,000 RPM

Sync = teh man from Greece..
not sure about this but I KNOW that in germany they express
two dollars and ten cents like this
in the US it would be 2.10

therefore I believe in greece they use the , for where the american would use the "."

sorry about the confusion, I am no good with decimals and whatnot outside of the US's.

My CPU stays generally in that vicinity of course I would love to have it run cooler.

ya I am a little young I have only been in the IT field for a few years, I got my degree in computer apps and programming only last year. However I must say I have probally learned more about computers, as far as the true workings of them, here than I was ever taught in college. Perhaps that is why I have stayed here for so long, I keep trying to learn more. truely though I have learned the most from the NUT and the MAN.

actually I don't know why Sync got worked up over it

it was really confusing at first when I moved to the US from germany in in '96..
