My reported System Temperature (when idle) is considerably higher than all other reported temps on my (new) machine. When Sys Temp is 51C, other reported temps are:
- GPU is 36C
- CPU is 27C
- HD0(SSD) is 30C
- HD1 is 33C
- Two other (unknown) temps report 28C and 30C - These would seem to be the "ACPI" temps.
Ambient room temp is 25C.
Fortunately, the Sys Temp does not increase by much under heavy load... I've seen a max of 58C running Prime95 for an hour (whilst the CPU temp reached 70C max). So, I've not been too worried, however, I cannot help but feel this is too high for idle!?
- Intel i7-4770k 3.5GHz (not overclocked)
- Corsair H60 liquid cooler (Pump connected to "CPU Fan" and corresponding fan connected to "Sys Fan")
- Gigabyte GA-Z87N-WIFI motherboard --> Does this just run "hot"?!
When the machine is first booted (cold boot - first thing in the morning), the reported "System Temperature" is a reasonable 36C. However, over the next 10-15 mins (in an idle state), this temperature will steadily increase to stabilise at 51C. Unsurprisingly the Sys Temp controls the Sys Fan and when the temp creeps over 50C the BIOS has a "panic" and ramps the system fan up from about 1000rpm to 2000rpm (max) - which is a bit too noisy! Fortunately I can use SpeedFan to keep the temp at 51C (at 1300rpm) under normal working conditions and that's nice and quiet. But 51C seems warm to me!
The "System Temperature" does not appear to cool particularly quickly. Throughout the day, if I was to reboot, I have only seen the temperature drop to about 48/49C. (I originally thought this was the lowest/starting temperature until I cold booted the machine this morning.)
The same temps are reported by SpeedFan, HWMonitor, and in the BIOS.
- Is 51C too hot (for my motherboard)?
- What exactly is the Sys Temp monitoring!?
- Why is the Sys Temp so much higher than all the other temps (when idle)?
