CPU temp

By classicgto1 ·
I've read a few responses to motherboard based questions and a few of the answers pertain to "check the CPU's temp in BIOS" I'm unaware of that setting. Can you explain to me where to go in BIOS to read the CPU "temperature" settings?
thanks

not all motherboards have this option, if you have a board that you bought from a reputable dealer you got a book with descriptions of the bios settings in it. this will tell you where to look. If not then when you boot at the bottom of the first screen is usually the motherboard identifier i.e. tkm b40 for tekram b40. what ever it shows drop it into google and it will usually tell you what board you have. there are also utilities that will identify your mother board, usually at places loke motherboards.org and tomshardware.com. let us know if you cant identify your board and we will try to help more.

I currently have a tekram mobo and the cpu temperature information in the bios is under the PC Health Status. The current temp is displayed with fan speeds and voltage readouts. This could change if your bios is newer or older than mine good luck. There is a setting for a shutdown temperature and a warning temp.

Most "modern" (socket A and P4 motherboards have both the hardware and software required for temperature monitoring.

The exact location of the screen in BIOS settings varies by motherboard mfg.

For some, there is a PC health screen.
For others, it is a sub-memu in the Power management section.

Many motherboard mfgs. also provide a utility to view the temperatures and fan speeds from within Windows.
For ASUS motherboards, the utility is Probe.

Here is a link to a donate-ware program that allows you to see the motherboard monitor information from Windows.
