    Dangerous temperatures on a DP875PBZ board

    tpaine2884

      I recently had to install 3rd party motherboard monitoring on my DP875PBZ desktop board as I upgraded to Windows 7, which did not support the original monitoring software that came with the board in 2003. The problem is that I have forgotten what temperatures are considered dangerous. I have a CPU sensor which usually runs the hottest, another on-board sensor somewhere, and a "case" sensor, which I believe is not critical. What temperatures for the CPU and board sensor should flag me for concern, and at what temperatures should I immediately shut off the PC?

       

      Please help! My PC runs too hot so I need to constantly watch the temps and it's critical that I know what is too hot.
