Klaus-the Brooding Genius.

Klaus, you really are well informed about all sorts of useful stuff.

Today I downloaded a little utility that monitors temperature anywhere there's a sensor on your mother board or processor. I found out also that the max temp for a P-IV(M) is about 100 deg. C. My Toshiba's running at a pretty consistent 53 deg. C which works out to 127 deg. f. The exhaust duct air temperature reads at a pretty consistent 118-120 deg. f on my Weston bimetal analog thermometer.

I will monitor this tonite after the Dragon Lady gets to doing some hi power webs surfing....here high atop the Dougloid Towers.

Cheerio

So it basicly tells you if yuor computer is nearly over heating.

No, a chip temperature in the range of 50-60C is quite ordinary for higher-powered systems.

It is confined to only the few square centimeters of the chip's surface, so the heat sink will distribute the energy and the fans will use large amounts of air to transfer it out of the system.

The heat sink will already be cooler than the core, and the exhaust air will be cooler again.

Newer systems often have regulated fans, so the chip temperature is simply limited to a certain level and the fans will keep it there by revving up when necessary. So "nearly overheating" would only be the case if the temperature was at maximum while the fans were already running at maximum at the same time.

The fans in my PowerMac G5 increase airflow when the respective CPU reaches 61C; Any further increase in heat output will only have the fans run harder but no change in chip temperature. The temperature will simply flatline at that point (with an emergency shutdown should the fans ever be unable to provide enough cooling, which should never happen).

With the fans running at full tilt, the temperatures should indeed be relatively moderate (which they are). However, the utility shows "Power: 3,0C", which is more than just a bit fishy...

Thanks!  Smile yeah that looks a little weird.. suddenly it changed to 30c, then dropped to 3c again

Reminds me of when I was writing my thesis using SPSS Clementine. Everytime I ran a modelling technique (rule induction, neural network..) which would take 3 to 4 hours to compile on my brand new high-spec HP Vectra 1.75Ghz (this was 5 years ago), somewhere in the process (1 or 2 hours later) the fan would go into emergency mode by running in loud crazy speed, and the light on the front of the PC would blink red. This was, according to the manual, an indication that the threshhold was crossed and that the PC needed to turn off.. I remember going to bed and looking at the data model produced the next day. I did that for weeks, it was hard getting a good forcast, 78% was the highest I reached I think.


This also reminds me of when I overclocked my Pentium 133Mhz (ok this was exactly 10 years ago) and used to touch it with my hand and assess the crazy temperature. You would expect that thing to burn, but it was the hard disk that fried instead for some reason..  Smile

I'd think I'd have a fit (or something that sounds like fit) if my temps got into the 40s (C) under load. My temps are usually around 28c to 34c, and I have no fan noise to bother me.
Yay Pudding!

My friends in Panama and Liberia would call this a "flag of convenience" if I was a tramp freighter and not a tramp lawyer in Iowa.

I adopted it after the cartoon fiasco as something of a tip of the hat to the Danes who were willing to poke fun at certain folks who have no sense of humor. We have an expression here in the states that speaks to the people who got so angry over it: "F*** em if they can't take a joke."

You know, the yankee bashing here was getting pretty much out of hand last year too...things've settled down a bit lately, but the Danish flag stopped a lot of that stuff. It's getting to be positively civilized around here.

Maybe Klaus had something to do with it.

Well I am glad to see that you like "my" flag so much But I think it is too bad that you felt that it is needed to stop the yankee bashing.
Have you been to denmark before?

I've never been off of the North American continent

The farthest east I ever got was Halifax, Nova Scotia on a 1968 BSA Thunderbolt and the farthest west was somewhere near Haines, Alaska....course, it was the Alaska Territory at the time.

My niece down in Davenport Iowa is married to a Norwegian dude....and I've got another cousin who is a folk singer and guitarist in France of all places. I guess anything's better than Johnny Halliday, right?

Funny thing about my niece-her husband is here on a H1 visa, a regular guy, they have a little daughter about a year old. Everytime I go to visit I teach the kid how to say "I'm from AhWa." They'll love that in Norway.

So no, my horizons are summat limited but a.net has introduced me to a number of Europeens who are more or less fitten companions so long as they wipe their feet and try to hit the spittoon when they let fly.
