    Pent D CPU Temp - 56c idel, 64 load

    I'm running a Pentium D 940 3.2Ghz processor (not overclocked) with the stock Intel fan. I'm wondering if these temps are 'normal' or if I have a problem

    SysTool crashes on my system
    Speedfan reports my CPU temp as -128
    Everest shows it under Aux as 63-64c under load
    HardwareMonitor shows the same as Everest, 63-64 under load (varies between the two)

    Everest and HM however can't decide on my fans - Everest says my CPU fan runs at 1200-1300RPM and case fans at 800RPM, HM says 800RPM for CPU and 1300RPM for case fans.

    Motherboard is sitting at 38c, HD at 39c as well (both agree on that).

    When idle, the CPU sits "happily" at 56c, under load I can hear the Intel fan whining.

    Case is an Antec P180, both upper fans are connected to fan controllers.

    My questions:
    a) Is 56c at idle 'normal'?
    b) Is 64c under load (F@H) ok? Should I be worried?
    c) Would connecting the Antec fans to a standard molex power connector and setting them at 'high' likely make any difference to the CPU temp or just cool the case down more and increase noise?
    d) Is 1300RPM for the CPU fan low?

    Thanks in advance

    Urrrrmm all I know is that thay do run hotter than say an average AMD but not sure exaclty. I'd say you'd be ok for the moment but might be worht looking for a better HSF to get them down a bit just to be on the safe side.

    I think mine AMD shuts down for safty around 70 ish.

    My Intel 820 runs at 59c in idle (according to my bios) rising to about 60c according to the supplied intel utilities, and the fan speed is approx 1800rpm.

    1300rpm speed would be fairly low but that depends on the speed of the actual fan..
    Woohoo now Assistant Manager!

    My PD920 runs 58'C Max load at 2.8Ghz with a Zalman Cooler (Quiet setting), going up to 68'C at 4Ghz (Performance setting).

    These chips aren't cool. Speedfan also report abnormal temperature on me.

    Try run AiBooster which gives you everything you need (monitoring / overclocking).

    Yep the Pentium D's are hotter than most chips but if you're worried just invest in some more fans.
