Temperature issues. Which temperature is wrong?

by jcasado94 / April 29, 2013 11:35 PM PDT

I am having temperature issues with my pc, as the BIOS is beeping now, and checking my BIOS beeping guide it looks like it's a temperature problem, and I'd like you to show me which is the hardware that is having that overheating.

Here you have a screenshot of CPUID:

<span>This is the temperature for a normal use, I'm just using a virtual machine with Ubuntu, listening to iTunes and browsing with Chrome...

My display card currently has no fan or cooling system, yesterday I bought a new fan, and it'll arrive soon. But I don't know, I've seen my display card with temperatures around 75*, and it was not beeping...
I'd like to know if there's a problem with something esle.

Thanks in advance. Happy

How do you check this?

Here I use a laser spot thermometer (the office is full of engineers) and we've swapped a few defective motherboards over this issue.

75C is dang hot. Did you try the old cover off, point a fan at the open case test?
And don't laugh, I still meet folk that think heat sink compound is optional. "The metal is touching so that's enough."
