Hello Everyone,

I did a case mod today, Added a fan on to top of my case, since I figured that heat rises. I will post pictures later, just a question. I wane to see what tempature my CPU is running at. Any easy programs to do this? I have a athlon 1900 cpu. Also, whats the tempature range for that cpu?

thanks,

You should state what motherboard you are using in your specs page.
Gigabyte has a software what monitors the system resources/temps for their own mobos.

Do a search for speedfan


easy to use and acurate, if you dont know which sensors are for what , use AIDA32 to get all the info on your whole setup right down to the very last detail.

Hey! I have same processor! Athlon right? Different mobo - but I uses MBM without real problem, except that I have to apply a cludge to adjust temp - and that involved an educated guess - currently my CPU is running at 38oC and I have the alarm set at 50oC - it rarely hits that unless I drive it hard for about a half hour...

You should be able to use MBM anyway, it worked OK for me, plus they have a BB and are pretty helpful.

I have the same motherboard with an Athlon XP 1800 and MBM works fine. Below is a set-up guide for the K7S5A and MBM5 from the K75SA forum, which can be found here:

Temperature/voltage monitor
Many use the freeware program MotherBoard Monitor 5 to monitor their CPU/System temperatures and voltages.
After you have installed MBM5, you need to configure it to read from the correct sensor IDs on the board.
The K7S5A has two temperature sensors, one mounted in the middle of the CPU socket (SiS950/ITE8705-3) and one mounted right of the PCI slots (SiS950/ITE8705-2):

Hope this helps

using speedfan. end of that story haha. next step. over clocking.. is there just a simple app out there that i can just slide a bar, i had one like that for my geforce card. i know every setup is different, but approx. how fast can i athlon 1900 be clocked to using standard fans.. no water cooling..

Hmm a lot. I did this to make my pc quiet.. Now I am only running on that one fan (other than my cpu and psu) average drop rate? not sure.. i never checked before because i always had my case open. but a lot, think about it, heat rises ;-). Right now there is just a box where the air comes out (pretty strong too) but i'll get a grill soon. very easy job too.

lemme tell you lieb if you puch that processor it gets hot fast! Can rise as much as 20oC in about two minutes - and if you hit 80 or so oC then it fries! Just a warning.. o/c can be OK, but not if you start playing DOOM! and don't have MBM monitoring!

Thanks for the warning. I'll just stay away from oc'ing. If I need more speed it's time for a new motherboard, and CPU. And more RAM.. and a bigger HDD.. and I could use a LCD.. and a dvd burner.. damn. Thats going to be a while until I get that cash haha.

I have a 550W dual fan PSU, with 5 case fans, a Coolermaster Aero 7 Lite processor fan, some Coolermaster Premium thermal compound and a very airy case, and Im cool as an Arctic winter.

With 2 hard drives, and a graphics card fan, its reasonable :p
Nah, its ok, I survive but it is a little noisy. It doesnt bother me too much really, I just turn the music up a bit louder :D

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
