Too Cool?

By Jeremy1957 ·
In my hardware monitor there is a specification for "CPU hysteresis temp" and "system hysteresis temp". They default to 104deg. F. If either temp. goes below that setting an alarm sounds. What is the Hysteresis? Can the compter be too cool?

The computer's temp. is affected by environment (it is metallic) and its own operations (it is inside a case.)

If the external environment is very very cold and the computer is not running on its full capacity. The "too cool" may happen.

But what do you want to know? What happen when it occurs? check it in www.intel.com or www.google.com

Your question makes me think you like to "dig deeper". IF so, check this site out for more on Hysteresis.

http://www.honeylocust.com/hysteresis/
Offers a java applet graphically demonstrating magnetic hystersis and a "what is Hystersis?" page.
