CPU Temp 127 degree

I have a dx2280 MT Pc.

After upgrading the BIOS to 1.11, the CPU temperature is showing 127 degree and CPU fan is rotating at 4.4K RPM

The CPU is not so hot

How are you measuring your CPU temps?  Are you using a utility program such a Speccy, or CoreTemp? 


If I am finding your systems specs correctly, that is one old computer.  It looks like there were several CPU choices initially offered by HP, do you know which one you have?


Download CPUz and it will tell you which exact CPU you have and then you can find its max allowable temp.


For example if you have this CPU: Intel Celeron D 356 Processor (3.33-GHz)


Intel says its maximum operating temp is 64.4C-69.2C (depending on which exact chip you have).


So you need to know 3 things-

1) what CPU you have- the exact model

2) the maximum operating temps for this CPU

3) are you getting accurate readings or false readings (use CoreTemp- its good)


I suspect your readings are false- because that CPU would throttle down, or just shut down completely well before 127C (unless of course you are reading Fahrenheit, then you are good to go)


127F = 52.7C


One last thing.  Why did you upgrade the bios?  In my experience I would never do this unless it was absolutely necessary (like when you change to a new CPU).  Otherwise you are just asking for trouble upgrading the bios or flashing the bios.  It's like rolling the dice.  Sometimes it works perfectly, other times it doesn't work at all and messes everything up, or at the very least causes a plethora of little problems that you then have to fix.
