I have a non-standard machine and it seems to run very hot; the CPU fan whirls so loudly I can hear it in the other room (the case is open, mostly because the side got lost at some point).
I downloaded a program called SpeedFan to see the temps and it says:
GPU: 63C Temp1: 36C Temp2: 68C
I assume Temp2 is the processor; if a blow a fan on it a while it drops pretty rapidly.
Is there a reason it runs so hot? Does this affect performance or is it in any other way bad for the system?
In case it matters, some basics on the system:
Motherboard: Gigabyte Tech EP43-UD3L RAM: 4GB Graphics Card: NVIDA GeForce 9800 GT Processor: Intel(R) D CPU 3.00 GHz
actually doing somethign on the computer got the temps up to GPU 67 and Temp2: 72
