Question about ASUS M2A-VM (0610839149438) Motherboard
Hi, I have a win xp-sp2, AMD 5600+,2 gb corsair 667 with a seagate 120g SATA & a 300w SMPS. I installed the catalyst 7.10 drivers, Then I found out that my processor uses is increased (goes upto 100% sometimes) & also the M/B & processor temperature shows 40-45 degree celcius.
Before installing the catalyst it was only between 38-40 degree celcius.
So I formated & re-installed the XP-sp2 with ASUS M/B CD drivers.
then also I experiances the same problem.
Is it normal or will it harm my system?
What should be the ideal temperature?
The CPU should be kept under 55C.
The heating you mention is completely normal. An active processor generates more heat. Thus with the CPU usage issue you mentioned, the processor works harder and produces more heat. The heat levels you report are still very normal.
You don't state your video card, but if you are having problems with the 7.10 drivers, try older or newer ones. Also make sure you have the correct/latest motherboard drivers installed.
Finally (unrelated to posted problem), keep an eye on that PSU. If you have a power hungry video card, it maybe too much for it to handle.
