hello, i jsut got a new computer today and i checked the temps with speedfan and the system temp was showing about 86C when then computer had only been on about 15 mins. im not sure what the other temps were at the time but now the comp has been on bout 4 hours and the temps are lookin like this: 53c gpu, 30c cpu, 27c aux and 88c system. would you consider the system temp to be accurate and should i be worried about this ?

Well as a rule the hottest parts of your system will be the GPU and CPU, so if they're running at 53 C and 30 C respectively I'd say you're fine. I can't see those two running at that sort of temperature while something else is over 80 C.
Besides, on the system I had before this SpeedFan used to register a couple of readings at like -50 C and that's obviously not right.

Some of the guys I know here say that speedfan isn't the best temp monitor. I would first try using a different program. I can't really think of any, but I know the guys hav mentioned a couple, so they'll probably mention one :)

ya thats kinda what i thought, if one temp is 53 or w/e it doesnt make sense for sumthing to be alot hotter then it. ill look for some more temp reading programs and see what others say. thanks
I didn't make it!
My northbridge heatsink gets much hotter than my CPU or GPU. Touching the heatsink, it's gotta be over 50c.

If that 88C "System" reading is legit, I would also guess it's the northbridge.
Download and run HWMonitor. It's a standalone .exe, no installation required, and I've always found it to be pretty accurate. I use it on multiple desktop and notebook systems.

Try Realtemp as well.
well tryed out HWmonitor and it was sayin the 'systin' temp was 88C max and 86C min thou the comp hasnt been on long, ill see what its like after couple hours. is this system temp to high or is it kinda standard for a 750i ftw, q9400 ? cpu temp at 33C.

uhh. Your NB should never be 88*C. It can take those temps but I wouldn't expect it to last too long. You must have a hot air pocket around your NB for temps to be that high.
i tryed this everest program( found in the hard forum post were someone else had high system temp with same mobo) , it says the motherboard is 26C, would that be like the system temp ?
