First post here! I’ve been following the YouTube channel for quite some time and am excited to finally post in this forum!
I’m quite new to windows /pcs. Previously most of my time has been on mac. I’ve recently built the below system for 3D rendering work and today started exploring with HWiNFO64 v7.30-4870.
I noticed a few sensors on the motherboard look high, even when at idle and wondered if it may be a build issue I could fix?
- Motherboard = 32c
- CPU = 39c
- Temp2 = 79c (highest = 88c)
- Temp3 = 93c (highest = 103c)
- Temp4 = 92c (highest = 103c)
- Temp5 = 97c (Highest = 105c)
- CPU (Weighted Value) = 32c
- CPU (PEIC Calibrated) = 11c
- Temp9 = 50c
Do I have anything to gain by improving these?
Should I be worried?
Does anyone know where these sensors are?
We’re using a Noctua Nh-U14s Tr4with dual fans and 6 case fans.
Thank you in advance for any help!
Good morning, we have 6 of these builds in currently, I will try and take a reading off them once complete. I would assume these may be acceptable temperatures since chipset and board temperatures can be considerably higher than other components. This motherboard comes with two onboard mini fans, one for the chipset and one for the IO panel area. One thing I did note when unpacking these motherboards is that the fan grills are covered by a plastic film which should be removed, I assume you have removed this?
Yeah, I’m the one who posted about this a few weeks ago and my specs are identical to yours.
It’s hard to say if this is “normal” or a bug with HW Info as there are other areas that are not properly reported (ie. RAM sticks)
I noticed that temps have gone down ever so slightly once I closed the side panel of my Fractal Design 7XL, so my thinking is that they are indeed temperatures.
Thank you very much for the responses guys!
When the work day is done here I’ll get it up on the bench and see if I have missed any plastic coverings. I’m very sure I haven’t though.
I’m just nervous seeing temps at 105 and especially with no load. Seems high but it’s so odd I’m leaning towards a reporting issue being more likely.
Thank you so much for the fast replies. Sorry I missed a thread on this already, I’ll try harder to look next time.
Have either of you connected to the BMC Remote Management to see what the temperatures say in there?
Hey Tim, no I haven’t, I actually haven’t been successful in accessing that and haven’t figured out why yet.
For the BMC setup, if you are looking at board flat on the bench you want to plug in the port closest to you, easier on DHCP enabled network, login is admin/admin. You can get IP from BIOS, server management section, under BMC network configuration. Can’t see any temps in the 100’s of degrees range but then I can’t see a sensor labelled as chipset in there either.
When I log into the BMC on the latest firmware (1.17) I don’t see these temp sensors even listed, all I have on my board is CPU_temp and LAN_temp.
I have the same thing:

[email protected]:~# sensors | grep °C | egrep “Tc|IN”
SYSTIN: +35.0°C (high = +80.0°C, hyst = +75.0°C) sensor = thermistor
CPUTIN: +45.5°C (high = +80.0°C, hyst = +75.0°C) sensor = thermistor
AUXTIN0: +76.5°C sensor = thermistor
AUXTIN1: +86.0°C sensor = thermistor
AUXTIN2: +86.0°C sensor = thermistor
AUXTIN3: +91.0°C sensor = thermistor
I found this explanation:
So it looks like those are some sensors that are unused/not connected.
You know it’s interesting reading that explanation. It sounds like someone in the board design didn’t put a pull-down resistor on the sensor header so that when they’re not connected it’s not going to show high instead of low.
That’s just my speculation
