Is this normal? Processor Running hot when first booted up.

I have an intel 4 ht 3.4 gig processor.  When I first boot up my computer the Processor says it is running at 100 degrees C right away.  Then some times it will go down to 51 C.  It seems to me that the software I am using to look at the processor Temp is incorrect.  It just seems  odd that when my computer first starts that it would be so hot with no time to warm up.  Is this normal?

By the way the motherboard is an ASUS Mother board and the software is the ASUS Probe.

Thanks

check if the heatsink is fully seated on the cpu, and did you check the temp in the bios ?

Did that ASUS probe come with the motherboard or did you download it from internet ??

its probably a false reading, because if the cpu was running at 100C it probably would shut down.  Try downloading "everest home edition" and see what that says the cpu is running at.

you have to check if the cpu is in its place correctly and then check if the fan is working properly. especially if u have asus motherboard they get hot very fast so i think it's better to get a better cooling fan, and cpu's above 3.2 needs a good cooling solutions, and if the computer gets very hot in windows,it should shutdown automatically.

Well that explains why my computer has been shutting down on me lately.

I am looking at Everst and it show me the motherboard Temp at 36c but I can not find a Processor Temp.  Would the motherboard temp be the same?


It looks like I wil need to get a fan.  I am looking at a Zalman Copper CPU Cooler.

Does this look like a good one or does anyone have a better suggetion?

Thanks again.

I had to reboot for the CPU temp.  Right now it says 51c witch is the same as the asus probe which was the software that came with Motherboard.  I also notice that my computer is tring ot overclock.  I am sure that would have something to do with the over heating.

How do I get it so I do not over clock?

maimon22Commented:
yes the Zalman Copper CPU Cooler is one the best ones if u get it u will notice the difference
what type of asus motherboard u have?

maimon22Commented:
i think asus are mostly the same settings....try getting into bios and choose advance menu->jumperfree configuration-> and turn the AI Overclock timer to Standard and Dram Frequency to Auto
but its better if tell the asus type

I am running Asus Probe 2.21.03 (Came with the mobo), and I have noticed that it reads 10°C hotter than any other monitor software... vcool, s2kctl.  
Even at idle, mine (Athlon 2600XP / Asus A7V8X-X) still runs in the 45°-50°C range, and jumps up to 75°-80° under load.

Download s2kctl ( http://www.stargaz0r.nm.ru/files/s2kctl15b101.zip ) to keep the CPU running cooler in general... I saw a 10°C temperature drop immediately after installing it.
That plus a good cooling system should do the trick.

maimon22Commented:
so as i told u it is the same, if u want to check if ur motherboard is overclocing u need to get into the bios into advanced menu and then into jumperfree configuration and check if the AI Overclocking is auto.
thats all
