    hi!

    i just set up SpeedFan, and when i am gaming, my Motherboard temp goes upto 56C and my core temperature go upto 52C.
    Gpu temp is ok @ 64-70C, CPU temp is [email protected] 39C and all the fans are working...

    WTF????

    mobo: Asus M4A78-E
    CPU: Phenom IIx4 920 @ 2.8Ghz
    GPU: Sapphire 4870HD 1Gb Vapor-X

    What kind of gauge (software/hardware) are you using to compare the temps?

    If you are comparing your previous gauge's temperatures to speedfans (the increased temperatures) it's possible that the temps vary only due to the sensors in speedfan; thus still the same in real world temperature.

    A bit more info is needed to full understand your situation though..

    So... your temperatures increased in CPUid once you installed Speedfan?

    yeah but now actually i uninstalled speedfan and my fans run on full... the thing is that my MB temp is now around 48 idle and 56 load, while my core temp is 37 idle and 49 on load.

    are these figures ok??

    Your core temperatures are fine, but your motherboard temps are a bit high. I would imagine the core temps would be higher than the motherboards.

    Do you have decent airflow in the case? Sounds as if the motherboard's heat-sink isn't cooling the
    mobo properly. Are you familiar with removing heat sinks and checking to ensure there is ample thermal compound between the mobo chip and the heatsink? If so, I would recommend giving it a check. Thermal compound misapplication can cause overheating issues, and both surfaces (chip & heat sink) need to be properly "lapped".
