Help! Do these temps looks normal? I am at a loss!

Postby Civilradiant » Thu Feb 21, 2013 12:01 am

I have been having a lot of random reboots over the last month or so, I have reinstalled the OS and ruled out any obvious software causes that I can think of. Looks like it must be hardware. Fans all seem to be operating normally and the internals are clean.

Wanted to rule out any overheating issues, I haven't done any gaming in over a year now, the restarts seem to be random, not associated with running any particular programs or intensive CPU usage.

Here is a screenshot of my temps according to this software I just installed.

Your expertise is much appreciated!

Thank you in advance for any advise!

Do these temps looks normal?

Pretty much. A bit surprising to have CPU that close to HDDs and below MB but nothing looks bad.

Sensor detection for your system seems a bit wacky, but that´s nothing uncommon and the voltages looks ok.

"Temp3 -128C: ( with 0 rpm fan speed ) :lol: :lol: Brrrrrrrrrrrr!!!

I have just gone through the exact same thing here...faulty old motherboard and failing power supply were the culprits. Bought new power supply which allowed me to at least run this old board in 2D mode, my new motherboard will be shipped to me tomorrow!

By the sounds of it you are having the same sort of issue here...my system would just shut itself off for no reason while idling in Windows ( nothing running ). I would suspect the motherboard first plus possibly your power supply dying...

Do you have another psu to test with?

How old is your motherboard? power supply??

Most likely it is one or the other failing here, or both as has happened in my case... :cry:

But did you notice some sensors report temps below zero before it died?

I think that was a simple Speedfan utility glitch ( or bad sensor ) , probably has nothing to do with the "health" of his motherboard...

Many issues can cause random reboots.. and the mobo itself is only one of them.

Maybe run memtest to rule out memory related problems.

That´s just imperfect sensor detection, 99.99% likely to be completely irrelevant.

The -128 is basically representing a 0 or null in sbyte that can store a range of values from -128 to 127. No worries about that one.

Yep! Must be a bad penguin sensor!! ( sooo cold -128C! :mrgreen: :incoming: :moon: :lol: )

Bad ram could cause these issues as Sauron says, but the most likely culprits are the mobo and psu...
