Hello everyone, I downloaded Speedfan and I understand some of it but some of it I'm not sure what it is. These are my temps with my questions:

CPU- 37
Ambient- 38 (Is this inside the case?)
Remote- 54 (That's really hot in Celsius, what's "remote"?)
HD0- 41 (Is that hard drive?)
Temp1- 40 (Again I don't know what this is)
Core- 36

Also my fan speeds were 2093 RPM for Fan 1 and 1230 RPM for Fan 2. Is fan 1 the one over the heat sink and Fan 2 the one out the back of the case? Also speed fans are at 44%....should I bump them up? Thanks in advance....

CPU- 37
Ambient- 38
Remote- 54 probably no sensor
HD0- 41 (Is that hard drive?) yes
Temp1- 40 probably the m/b
Core- 36 could be case
see what the other app gives you

You really only need to know the CPU (most important) ambient (and how it relates to CPU temp). The HD temps are nice to know. Especially if your ambient is high, your CPU is high and your HD's are high, you might start thinking about case cooling.

But if CPU is high and everything else is low, you might think about cleaning your CPU fan.

Just looked at the numbers. 38 seems pretty low for a CPU, and 54 seems pretty high for a CPU, so I can see why you want to know for sure. 41 is a good HD temp.

ALso the difference between ambient/core (case)/motherboard seems a little low. One degree ?

What's your system spec, specifically CPU ?

dai, thats a cool program. Is CPU usage % the amount the processor is working and memory usage % the amount of RAM being utilized?

Girderman, which one is the motherboard temp? Also is ambient or core inside of the case? This is the part where I get confused. I just fired it up again and eveything is within about 2 degrees of each other except the hard drive which is now reading 40.

System specs are Athlon 3800 + 2.4ghz processor, 2 GB RAM, Antec 500 watt power supply, Nvidia 7900 GS graphics card, factory 200 GB hard drive. It's in a HP Pavilion case so there's just the one external case fan out the back.

Okay, after a little gaming the CPU was reading 39 and the core was reading 46.

Sensors View is only showing the hard drive temp. i went into options and it seems that it's the only temp sensor it's recognizing.

Dunno. Not familiar with this proggy. CPU is the one you really need to know.
