Hi

I'm using speedfan to monitor my dell and it says this:
GPU:56C
HD0:33C
Core:22C
Core:56C
Ambient:0C

Which one is my CPU reading, lol? Also is 60C too hot for a 8400GS in Ilde? Thanks

Specs
AMD 3400+ 2Ghz
1GB DDR2

Something is wrong, big time. How can there be such a vast difference on core temps.? 56C and 22C ?!?! Anyway, the 2 cores are your CPU core temperatures. And your ambient temp. is incorrect.

And 56C is not too hot. It can't fry the card anyway. I used to run my 8600GT at 62C idle, 80C load no issues.

I believe him. Speedfan also gives simular readings for my computer too :)

I'm running a Phenom II 920 overclocked to 3.6ghz on an ASUS M3A78-EM.

When i run 3dmark06, this extra "Core" reading in speed fan reaches about 73C. I have NO idea what this sensor is referring to, but the first "Core" maxes out at 45C which is agreeing with the ASUS motherboard monitoring software.

No other temperature matches with this other reading on the ASUS mobo software, which really throws me for a loop. Whatever it is, it's getting really hot..
