There are five motherboard temperature sensors for my PC, according to HW Monitor.
Two of these, called TZ00 and TZ01, are always at 28C and 30C respectively, no matter what. I am inclined to believe that these are bugged readings, since my ambient temp itself is often above 30C.
The other three readings are referred to as TMPIN0, TMPIN1 and TMPIN2. I have no idea what TMPIN0 measures, but TMPIN1 seems to somewhat correlate with my GPU temperature and TMPIN2 definitely matches with the temperature of my CPU.
Under 100% GPU load (with corresponding 85% CPU load), the temperature readings for my PC's motherboard are as follows:
TMPIN0 - 50C //(Idle = 38C)
TMPIN1 - 64C //(Idle = 45C)
TMPIN2 - 70C //(Idle = 43C)
[When CPU is stress tested to 100% load, TMPIN2 reading reaches 74C, with TMPIN1 reading reaching a max of 49C]
I would like to ask very simply, are these still safe (albeit high) operating temperatures when at 100% GPU/CPU load, or are these very dangerous temperatures?
At what point should I be concerned with the temperatures of my motherboard? I have a Dell 0XR1GT motherboard.
Mind, I live on the equator, so I have ambient temps of 29C at night and 34C during the day on average.
Edit: To add, when at 100% GPU load my GPU temperature reading itself is 80C, and under 100% CPU load, my CPU package temperature reading is up to 75C. However, the focus of my question is still on the motherboard temperature reading, since I have found the GPU/CPU readings themselves while high are still acceptable.
