CPU usage generally depends upon what application(s) you are running. There are some apps that barely utilize the cpu, and there are others that are resource hogs that peg the CPU near 100%.

CPU temperature will also vary, depending on the load, and numerous other factors. For example, the ambient temp will affect the CPU temp - when it's cool in the room, the CPU temp will not be as high as if the room temp is warm/hot. Other factors include the type of HSF, the number of fans in the system, and the case itself, as some are better at dissipating heat than others.

So, to give you a better idea of what temp is normal for your setup we'd need much more info about the system. But for reference, 40 celcius is a pretty good CPU temp, particularly if that is under load.

Wat temp is for fridge and freezer to be on plz


What are your recommended temperatures for the fridge-freezers? The default and recommended temperatures for our fridge-freezers are as follows:-

4?c for the fridge compartment, 5?c specifically for the fruit and veg compartment, and -20?c for the freezer.
The ideal temperature setting for a refrigerator is 3?C and for a freezer it's -18?C. The only exceptions are fridge-freezers in the RB*** range, for which we recommend -19°C (as -18?C isn't an available option for these models).

PC Overheating


Why does the PC keep shutting down whilst in operation?
If you PC keeps shutting down then it means that it is overheating and the shutting down is to prevent it from damaging itself. The optimal operating temperature of all electronics as somewhere around 21 degrees Celcius or 69.8 degrees Fahrenheit ambient air temperature.

4 Things you can do to prevent overheating.

Dust Removal - The first thing you can do to prevent overheating is to make sure your case fans as well as system fans are clear of dust as dust clogs up the flow of air therefore less cool air can reach the hot component. To do this you can use a vacuum cleaner. With a dust free PC you can expect around 10 degrees cooler in some cases, it all depends really on the operating conditions.

Invest in some case fans - Another way to prevent overheating is to invest in some good quality case fans, the sizes vary between 80mm to around 140mm, some can be even larger.

Replace thermal paste - You should always replace the thermal paste under the heatsink of your CPU every 4 to 5 years as over time it gets crusty and becomes less effective at dispersing heat. Thermal paste should be placed in a line about the size of a rice grain on top of the CPU in the centre.

Invest in a good CPU cooler - Most stock CPU coolers are able to keep temperatures at a reasonable level, but better CPU coolers can be purchased if you really want a cool CPU. These can range from Cooler Masters V-Series Air Coolers (V6, V8, V12) to liquid cooling systems by various manufactures such as DeepCool and Corsair. Remember - Most after market coolers are better than the stock cooler supplied with the CPU. For clarification it's best to have a one-on-one chat to a sales person at your local PC store.

There is a great FREE program on the Web called Hardware Monitor by CPUID. You can get it here.
slasher_x_53.jpg
Just click on the 1.17 Setup, english, as shown below circled in red, to download the program.
slasher_x_54.jpg
The Hardware monitor software monitors your systems temperatures in the background whilst you work. It shows current, minimum and maximum temps of your components such as:
- North Bridge and South Bridge motherboard temperatures.
- ACPI Power Supply temperature.
- CPU temperature.
- Graphics Card or Display Card temperature.
- Hard Drive temperature.

The diplay of these temperatures depends on the temperature nodes in your system. Newer Motherboards will have CPU, North and South Bridge temperature readings. The Hard drive readings depends on your hard driver, most SATA hard drives should have readings. Again the ACPI reading will depend on the quality of your Power Supply.

Harware Monitor also displays the fan speeds of your CPU as well as any fans directly connected to the motherboard.

With these temperatures on hand you can quickly isolate the overheating components and take action to ensure that they are kept cool.

Fridge not cold enough


The higher the number the colder the temp is supposed to be.

In order to prevent the formation of bacteria and other such organisms to affect food the way it does, the ideal temperature range of refrigerators has been mentioned here. Before we look at these settings, it is important to know the format in which temperatures are represented within a refrigerator. Commonly, you will notice a dial representing the figures 1-5 or 1-9 in the refrigerator, and a dial representing the letters A-E in the freezer. The ideal setting is usually in the middle of such figures.

If the dial is in such a format in your refrigerator, try a setting at 3 if the range is 1-5, and at 4 if the range is 1-9. For the freezer, a setting at C is suitable.

The ideal temperature in the refrigerator ranges between 34 degrees F - 38 degrees F or 1 degrees C - 3 degrees C. So that foods such as vegetables and fruits remain fresh and crisp, the temperature may be set around 38 degrees F or 3 degrees C.
The ideal temperature in the freezer ranges around 0 degrees F (-18 degrees C) or lower.

Getting beep codes 1-3-3-1. Have swapped RAM sticks with one that works in other PCs but still no luck on affected PC. Could motherboard be issue?


sounds like it, if it's not the RAM then try graphics cards and any addon cards installed on the PC, if this fails, then it is likely the motherboard or CPU, if it's the CPU, then it has most likely failed from overheating, check the CPU in an equivalent machine and if it has failed, check for clogged coolers and any failed fans on the system. And replace parts as necessary with genuine or as close to genuine as possible parts, and monitor the temperatures with Speedfan for the first 24 hours of use, averages should be:
IDLE: 40*C or lower depending on room temp
UNDER LOAD: 50-65*C, if the CPU hits above 78*C, shut the PC down before the temperature skyrockets any higher and remember that the lower you can get the temperatures, the better, so if it overheats, try better thermal compound between the chips!

If the day temperature is in the mid 50's and the night temperature is down to the mid 30's, can I spray round-up on weeds.


* For best results use when daytime temperatures are 60-85 degrees F CONSISTENTLY (day after day) Nighttime lows will ideally, be no less than the low 50's, although some Roundup lables state the 40s. * Roundup will not typically give satisfactory results if daytime temperatures are consistently below 50 degrees F (15 C)

Problem after installing catalyst 7.10 drivers


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.
