I have a AMD X2 64 7750BE.

My system bios show my CPU temp is at 64 degrees centigrade(64C). Is it too hot?

MY CPU fan RPM is 2355. Is the rpm speed normal?

According to a Google Search, a temperature between 40°C and 60°C is normal for this CPU, max is 75°C. But you could try to get a bigger heat sink.

Btw, You mean Celsius. ;)

Depends on what part of the world he's from ... some countries use Centigrades, not Celsius in the name (same thing, different name). – Rook Feb 23 '10 at 19:24
@Idigas: Oh, didn't know that. Centigrad does sound to me like it is just a hundred of one celsius...well, in that case, sorry compu, I take that back! – Bobby Feb 23 '10 at 20:09

This sounds like a normal temperature for a processor. If your really worried you could look into getting a third party heatsink for it.

Between 40* and 75* is fine. I've had my computer run up as much as 85* before.

I had a GeForce 8400GS, passive, which could run at 115 °C. And yes, it's still working (now active cooled ;) ). – Bobby Feb 23 '10 at 20:07

It also depends on where do you live :-)

During summertime my CPU is much hotter.

So if you get 64C for air temperature around 20C, but you expect to have 40-45C during summertime, start looking for a better cooler.
