Sounds about right.Personally I'd be happier seeing the motherboard temp a bit lower but temps can differ greatly from system to system and as long as there's good airflow you should be fine. The true test is what your system temp is like when at 100% load.Whilst it's rare to see a system at a 100% under normal use unless your running a particular application (or gaming) and even then it's not for very long, you still want to know your cooling is adequate.
My desktop shows 32C motherboard and 25 CPU. It is the laptop that shows the figures above.
I was just reading that Speccy was giving inaccurate readings at a forum but I do not know if that is true or not.
Oddly enough, as I surf, I find my laptop figures above to be about right.
I have to look into this so I can tell if the laptop needs attention.
I just ram Speccy and compared it with my Bios temp monitor. Both were identical.
fwiw. I am sitting at a Dell "stationary Touchscreen , i7 Computer. This is a unique model, with the main components (mothertboard etc) in the base of the monitor. This base is smaller than the average laptop. My current temperatures are 58, on one core, down to 51 on another core, with an average 4% load.. The motherboard is at 62.
This has always been the case, and the computer has never cut out.
