PC Overheating

By Mighty Pirate

  1. These are the recordings from my PC when I run speedfan:

    GPU 53C
    TEMP1 62C
    TEMP2 41C
    TEMP3 -128C
    HD0 35C
    CORE 58C
    CORE 53C
    AMBIENT 0C

    At first I thought the problem of my PC shutting down when I am on gaming sites was that I needed a new PSU. Now having seen these recordings do I need a new fan fitted?

    Thanks in advance for any advice offered ;O)

    Speedfan can only be as accurate as your motherboard lets it. That 128C reading is false. If it was correct, your systems CPU would be just a heap of molten metal. What is your computer? What are its specs? You will need to look elsewhere for your problems. Places like memory troubles or hard drive corruption
