In the good old days I've had a P4 processor report upto 80c or so. Whether that was a faulty sensor I don't know but it certainly seemed to correspond with things.

Currently, my Works i5 Laptop is running at approx 70C on both cores!

Todays processors will run at 50-80 no problem. Only becomes a problem if you overclock and the instability kicks in at the extremes.

The P4s were notorious for heat and the quote here of 80c isn't unusual. I hated them.

My quad core AMD Phenom II 3.5 is around 45, but the fan speed have not changed, still under a 1,000RPM and the computer is rendering a video, mind you that is done more so by the video card now, but CPU is around 50%. so not too bad.

I was playing Battlefield 3 the other day and I reached 105°C on the cores on my i5 . After that I shut down and cleaned the filter on the case. It was clogged with so much dust.

Makes you wonder how they manage in hotter climes, e.g. Australia, cobber.

Well I have a Core 2 duo 3Gz running at 3.6Ghz, so am not too inclined to see how how things can get. In truth, my gfx card went down the tubes a year or so ago, so I swapped in an old passive heatsink card, and it's not all that happy to run too hot in the gfx stuff. We're really talking games (which I don't bother with so much nowadays), but on a day like this, I wasn't chancing extended vid stuff.

Ambient room temp was 25.5oC today, and is still at 25oC. Strange, as it's 15C outside right now. Maybe best to standby and open the window for a bit.

My I7 3770k idle's around 40 oC with a Corsair H80 cooler. It's overclocked to 3.4Ghz (Was 3.5, but after about 25 hours for force restart so clocked it down a notch).

My GPU is the worst, GTX 580 that idles around 75 oC... my room is like an oven!

The stock speed for an i7-3770k (which is what I have) is 3.5GHz, so yours is underclocked. In which case I'm surprised at your idle temp; mine is running at 3.5, with a Corsair H60, and is 11C cooler than yours at idle.

That was meant to be a 4 sorry xD 4.4Ghz originally 4.5Ghz OC

i thought Intel chips was suppose to handle temperatures better than that?
Saying that my mate was saying is I7 is running at round 50 and that is idling. goodness knows what it is when he start playing his games.

Yes, they can handle it, a fuss over nothing really.

Last weekend my Mum's PC motherboard fried (it was getting on a bit). Thought nothing about it and she wanted a laptop anyway so old PC is now in the loft.

Came to work on Monday and one of my colleagues asked if I had a spare PSU. He wanted to test his Dad's PC as that wouldn't start up. Turns out his mobo was fried as well - in fact to the extent that one of the capacitors on the board started to smoke.

This is pretty high coincidence and can only think that the 2 machines didn't like the hot weather and being older models both mobos fried pretty much on the same day.

Umm.

My AMd is still nice and cool and been rendering a video for the last couple of hours.

You haven't defined "cool", you are just assuming that a CPU running at 30c is better than 50-60C. It could be well within the specification of the processor, and as we know, processors are incredibly reliable and even if subjected to temperatures outside the range, they should thermally shut down anyway.

The concern is other components like RAM, HDD, more probably.

Really, systems should not be overheating in UK weather if designed properly, even if run under full load and with a few years of dust in them. If they are then it has been built incorrectly or is defective. We have had no failures of computers at work due to this weather and some have 6-7 years worth of dust in them AND run Pentium 4.
