CPU Running Temperature Intel Core i3 3220

Recommended Posts

Don't know why I do it, but I use "Speccy" monthly & note running temperatures.

Generaly the CPU Temperature is 25/28 C.

Today it was recorded as 39C

Is this within normal range or have I a problem coming?

Depends on what CPU you have, but this guide sheet seems to indicate you're still in the acceptable range for an idling PC, not yet into the normal working temperature range.

So no cause to worry as yet, but it may be worth giving it a spring clean with an air duster to ensure all the air ducts and cooling fins are dust free.

Thanks.

The type is a Intel core i3 3220 "Ivy Bridge"

Looking at the guide sheet Idle Temp is 28/35, Normal 50/60C Max 65C

So as you OK, but I will keep watch & vacuum out the dust

Most, if not all, CPUs nowaday have a built-in non-selfdestruct mechanism where the device will shut down before it reaches dangerously high temperatures.

Thanks, good to know, but my CPU has reverted back to a range of 25/28C

So no problem, I hope

To check the temperature try Speedfan. As to your computer being hot, how hot, what type of computer and where is it being used.
