What is a good CPU temp? ASUS Probe is showing around 80 degrees Farenheit. Is that good?

Yep that is a good temp. 80oF is somewhere in the lower 30oC (I forgot the formula to convert Farenheight to Celsius and vice versa) anyone know?

To convert deg F minus 32 devided by 1.8 =deg C or deg C multiplied by 1.8 plus 32 = deg f. Wow. that useless first chapter in my chemistry and physics books accualy paid off. Your cpu is at 26.6667 degrees C
My sig went AWOL

Then it came back.

So I deleted it again.

Hey There

A Bad Cpu Temp would be 50 degrees C and up or 122 degrees F and Up (in my opion [I am runnning a Amd Athlon Xp 2220+])
For the newer Cpu's I am not sure. By the way what Cpu are you using?

Are you reading CPU temps @ 80 degrees?!?!?
That sounds more like MOBO temps too me. Unless you got a hella good water system.

That's an awesome Temp reading. But for more consistant temps refer to your bios as it will be more accurate there. As far as a bad temp, it all depends on your chip and what voltages your running, your air cooling. For reference I was running an AMD T-Bird 1400 and it ran about 120 farenheit. Which is hot but not for that chip as it is a hot running chip anyway. For best reference go manufactures web site and do some digging around there. If you don't find anything there ask customer support. Good Luck.
