Advice 1: How to know the temperature of the chipset

Overheat certain devices of a personal computer can lead not only to a decline in overall PC performance. Long-term local increase in temperature often causes failure of devices such as the CPU, video card and chipset.
How to know the temperature of the chipset
You will need
  • - Everest.
Instruction
1
To detect overheating of some devices help utility. To determine the temperature of the CPU and graphics card you can use a simple program such as SpeedFan or Speccy. Unfortunately, they are not always able to read information from the temperature sensor, located on the chipset. To determine the settings for this unit use the AIDA (Everest).
2
Download this utility. Install the components of the program Everest. Restart the computer and run the utility. Look in the left column of the tab "Computer" and expand it. Open the menu "Sensor".
3
Look for "Chipset" or MCP and see the temperature. It should be noted that these readings may differ slightly from the actual. If you have devices capable of measuring the temperature of small items, use them.
4
Remove the system cover to access the motherboard. Find heatsink chipset. Usually the motherboard has only two radiator cooling: for CPU and chipset. Clear temperature readings from the bottom of the right radiator. Add to the result of 4-5 degrees Celsius.
5
Please visit the official website of the manufacturer of the system Board installed in your computer. Find the specifications of the chipset and find out the operating temperature range. In that case, if you see overheating, replace the thermal paste between the chipset and heatsink. Naturally, this procedure must be performed only after disconnecting the computer from AC power.
6
After replacing the thermal paste be sure to check the temperature of the chipset. In that case, if the previous procedure did not help significantly to lower the temperature, install an additional cooler.

Advice 2: How to check the temperature of your graphics card

During operation of the computer or laptop, the user can feel that the machine is working half its strength. As a rule, the most important factor in fast work is good cooling of all components of the computer. In order to determine the efficiency of the cooling system of your car, you must make temperature measurements with specialized tools.
Good cooling of the parts is very important for the computer

To perform control measurements of the temperatures of the components of your computer, of course, you can use the thermometer. But this method is not practical, although it is considered the most accurate in the evaluation of the temperature. If you are interested in the temperature of the video card the latest models of these cards provide a digital temperature sensor. This is many times easier temperature measurements. But if for any reason you are unable to remove the side cover of the system unit (computer under warranty, and the system unit is sealed, use special software.
Common programs usually are programs of free access, i.e. free. Among them are 2 useful tools:

- Speed Fan;

- Everest Ultimate Edition.

Speed Fan allows you to measure the temperature of several components in your computer including the hard disk, and a processor. Once you run the program, it immediately starts measuring the temperature. A distinctive feature of this program can be multi-level temperature indicator. What is this indicator? This shows not only the temperature of the device and indicates whether it is limit or is normal. At the time of increasing or reducing the temperature of the sensor also notifies you about it, a graphical arrow goes up or down. The program can be kept open in minimized mode. In the system tray can display the digital indicator for any of the selected devices. On one of the tabs you can go online test the health of your hard drive.

Everest Ultimate Edition contains a number of test audits, benchmarks, etc. As for Speed Fan, you can do a large number of measurements. But information on your computer is a lot more. Have the opportunity to learn even time intervals of operation of your operating system against downtime and the life span of your operating system (how long has the system installed). To calculate the temperature of your video card, just go to the tab "Video".
