    NM, I just looked it up. I did not even know that thing existed.

    Can't help you with it; I only run the v7 clients from the download page.

    If you are not running folding on your GPU, those temps in Speedfan are bogus.

    Oh, man, I've just realized the Speedfan window is reporting in degrees F. Most folks use C when discussing CPU/computer temps.

    The temps are most likely OK, then. But I'm too lazy to do the conversions.

    I am also to lazy to do the conversions that is why I change to degrees F!

    It's hard to find the benchmark acceptable temps in F, though...good luck with that. What is the idle temp in F?

    Mid 80's except GPU which runs in the 140's- Used to worry me-doesn't any more it just has always run that hot.

    Thunder's right, 60+ C for the GPU at idle isn't right. There's something broken there somewhere. ESPECIALLY when the CPU is only pulling 35 C.

    Probably his Speedfan configuration isn't correct, and it's reporting the wrong temps. There are a lot of settings under the hood in that little gem to get it right. Mostly likely some offsets or something.

    I like Speedfan, and use it on Windows machines, but I've never been able to use it effectively out of the box.

    I noticed the newer video cards GTX 1060 have a single fan that stops when its not in use, then spins up when the GPU gets hot.
    I've never seen this before... in the past all of my video cards had a fan that spun continuously.
    Maybe there is a setting in Nvidia drivers to adjust fan speeds?

    in Gentoo it's a dependency of the driver package, it's called nvidia-settings. You most likely have it as well.

    The vid card was hot to the touch So I pulled it and applied Arctic silver to the GPU.Only gained 1c. Disappointing.
    I then installed another vid card (Radeon R7 340.and gained 14c- EVGA Geforce 9800GT Just runs Hot I guess

    But your Speedfan temps are useless...you really should try to find out HOW hot everything really is.

    It shows your GPU at 27C. That's not hot at all, perhaps cooler than normal, if it's an idle temp.

    I'll look around for an alternative to Speed Fan. The GPU does seem rather low. This was under full load. But the GPU shouldn't be affected by F@H Unless I was running a Gpu client-which I haven't yet.
    I'm forced to think that Speed fan is accurate as I get the same temps in Cpuid HWMonitor.

    Well, for one, either the core temp or temp 1 is wrong; the core temp can't be 39 if temp 1 is a CPU-related temp under load, as I think you were running F@H at the time this screenshot was taken. Temp 3 is clearly wrong.

    Speedfan requires some rather tedious calibration/setup. It's useful to have a temperature probe to do it right. I think I remember seeing a guide for the basic setup on the almico.com website. Try that, and see if you get more believable temp readings.

    Alternatives to Speedfan for CPU temps that you can try are CoreTemp and RealTemp. You can try all of the above at the same time, and choose the ones with the most believable temp readings, then set the offsets in Speedfan to reflect the same readings.

    I could never figure out temp 3 so I ignored it. will try your suggestion in the near future as my rig is on the bench getting ready to accept this cooler---

    I think I won the war. Installed the liquid cooler and replaced video card and temps are nice.
