Just like all electronic components, CPU produces heat while it is running. Heat in excess, however, isn’t good and can even lead your CPU to burn or to work in an unstable way. In this tutorial you will learn what are the effects of high temperature over the CPU, will learn how to measure your CPU current temperature and will have access to tables listing the maximum supported temperature for the main CPUs available on the market.

Microprocessors heat due to Joule effect, which is the process of transforming electrical energy into heat. Inside the CPU there are several wires (conductors) in charge of its internal interconnections. The Joule effect appears due to the shock between electrons and the conductor ion mesh, leading to an increase in the temperature of the conductor.

The heat generated by an electronic device needs to be removed as soon as possible; otherwise its internal temperature will increase. If the device gets too hot internally, its internal circuits can be damaged, thing that we don’t want, of course.

The maximum CPU temperature is usually written on its body in a coded format – i.e., a letter added somewhere indicates what the CPU maximum temperature is. This code isn’t standardized; it varies according to the CPU. On the CPU datasheet, which is available at the manufacturer’s website, there is a section that explains the coding used on the CPU, which includes the CPU maximum temperature.

This temperature is the maximum temperature the CPU can work without burning. The lower the CPU temperature, the better. Good quality CPU coolers and the correct use of thermal grease will make your CPU to work way below its maximum rated temperature. Read our tutorial How to Correctly Apply Thermal Grease to learn more about this subject.

[nextpage title=”Effects of High Temperature on a CPU”]

When the CPU works above the maximum admissible temperature set by its manufacturer, the following problems can occur:

  • Reduction of CPU life-span;
  • Random freezes;
  • Random resets;
  • Eventually the CPU can get burned.

Cases of PCs giving the infamous Blue Screen of Death while you are loading or installing the operating system because the CPU is overheated are not rare (keep in mind that other problems not related to overheating can also present this same symptom). Another typical overheating scenario is the computer working correctly and then after some time it starts to malfunction.

In order to solve overheating problems some measures must be taken, besides choosing the correct CPU cooler and applying thermal grease correctly:

  • To reduce the room temperature;
  • To enhance the case internal airflow.

We have already addressed this issue on two tutorials: Typical Assembling Problems and Cases: Avoiding Overheating. We recommend you to take a look at them.

[nextpage title=”Measuring the CPU Temperature”]

The CPU temperature can be measured through a sensor located on the motherboard, below the CPU, or inside the CPU itself, feature available on the latest processors, like Core 2 Duo. Practically all motherboards come with a program that allows you to read this sensor. On the Internet you can find several programs for this task, such as Motherboard Monitor and Hardware Sensors Monitor.

Motherboard Monitor is very efficient not only because it can be accessed through the taskbar (see Figure 1), but because it allows you to configure an alarm that will let you know if the CPU reaches a certain temperature level. This program also monitors the system fans and the power supply voltages. This program is highly recommended if you are overclocking your system, since the CPU temperature tends to increase when it is overclocked.

Temperature Figure 1: Motherboard Monitor reading the CPU temperature.

Another way to check the CPU temperature is through the motherboard setup (pressing Del right after turning your PC on), on an option called “PC Health Status,” “System Health,” “Sensors” or something similar. The CPU temperature can be easily checked there, as you see in Figure 2.

Monitoring CPU Temperature Thru SetupFigure 2: Monitoring CPU temperature through setup.

The motherboard setup isn’t the best way to check the CPU temperature because while it is running the CPU isn’t being pushed to its maximum processing power and thus won’t achieve its maximum temperature. Because of this we recommend a software-based solution like the one shown in Figure 1.

[nextpage title=”Protecting Your PC Against Overheating”]

For your computer to work correctly, you need to use a CPU cooler that is adequate to the CPU that you have and also apply thermal grease correctly. We have already explored these subjects in our How to Correctly Apply Thermal Grease and How to Correctly Assemble PCs With Pentium 4 Prescott and we recommend that you read them both (the second one only if you have a Pentium 4 Prescott or a Pentium D).

There is a way to protect your PC from overheating through the motherboard setup.

On the motherboard setup you will find one or two options to deal with CPU overheating. You can configure your PC to play an alarm (which sounds like a fire truck; “CPU Warning Temperature” option, see Figure 2) or to shutdown (“CPU Shutdown Temperature” option) whenever the CPU reaches a certain temperature.

If you are going to use these options, be careful to not configure them with a value that is too low, otherwise the PC will make a siren noise or will shutdown even with the computer working inside its normal temperatures. We recommend you to measure your CPU temperature while running a “heavy” program (games, for example) and make the desirable configuration with a value above from the one measured.

Thru this same setup menu you can monitor PC fans, especially the fan from the CPU cooler. You can also configure an alarm to play whenever the fan stops working or to increase the CPU fan according to the CPU temperature. Since the faster the fan spins the more noise it makes, there are users that prefer to configure the CPU fan to rotate at a lower speed if the CPU temperature is working under an acceptable temperature level, making the fan to spin at its full speed only when the CPU is generating more heat, what usually happens when the user is running a “heavy” application, like games.

The number of options present on the motherboard setup varies according to the motherboard model.

What is the maximum temperature your CPU support? Instead of making you looking for and downloading your CPU datasheet, we compiled a series of tables containing the maximum temperatures for the main CPUs present on the market today.
