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.
You will have to look up the CPU Specs , that will tell you whats too hot , Most normal sys , you would want to be at 40C to 45C . But Max may be 95C, or 105C,
