Ps photo. No matter whether you have a laptop or a PC, keeping the temperature of your components in check is essential. Usually, you get to know the health of your system by gauging the temperature because most of the problems start from overheating. In this article, we shall help you check the temperature of your computer components. If 'T-joint' is indicated (as indicated above), the general advice is to keep the objects at least 30 ° below the indicated temperature. (For the previous example, we will try to keep below 70 ° C). However, if your laptop or computer is below your room temperature (or, ideally, for everyone!), At this point it is fine.
Use Intel/AMD Utilities
Depending on the processor you have on board, you can choose to use the utility programs developed by the manufacturer.
For Intel processors, you can use Intel Extreme Tuning Utility. And, for AMD processors, you will find an AMD System Monitor.
These utilities might give you other features – but it may not be intuitive enough or if you want to get more details on the voltage/temperature of all the components individually, you can try the next solution below.
HWMonitor is the simplest (and the most useful) software you will find to view the voltages, temperatures, and fan speed. Simply download the setup file available for free through their official download page. You can also opt for the pro version for some extended features.
Use Your Motherboard’s Utility Software
Depending on your motherboard, you can download the software utility by your manufacturer to check the temperature of your computer components.
For instance, there’s an App Center software for Gigabyte motherboards where you can use the System Information Viewer to check the temperatures and other relevant details. Similarly, you will find utility tools for MSI, ASUS, and so on.
You can also set a warning limit for temperatures – as you can see in the image above.
You might be able to use the tools no matter what motherboard you have – but we would recommend you download the utilities by your motherboard manufacturer.
What’s The Ideal Temperature For Your Computer Components?
Normally, without intensive tasks, if the temperatures you observe are well-below 55 °C, you have nothing to worry about.
And, in case you are playing a game, processing a video or performing any resource-intensive task, note that the temperature does not exceed 80 °C.
It is also worth noting that you need a good case for your PC for the best airflow/cooling. If it’s a laptop, you can refer to one of our older articles highlighting the reasons why your laptop overheats.
If you are not sure how to choose a good case/cabinet/chassis for your PC, take a look at this video below:
Now that you know how to monitor and check your system’s temperature, you should keep a close eye on it whenever you perform a resource-intensive task just to be sure.
If you notice abnormal temperatures for a specific component, go ahead and contact the manufacturer to get advice on aftersales support to help fix the issue.

Hello everyone. This is very hot summer. We believe that many of you have a laptop overheating issues by now, and this blog post will teach you how to check your hot laptop temperature.

Sometimes when your laptop gets really hot, it shuts down itself to protect the computer from damaging. It is always good to be cool. 😀 😀 😀 Also, we will let you know how to check your laptop battery condition.
In order for you to check the temperature of your laptop as well as your battery condition, you will need to use a program called “hwmonitor”. 😀 😀 😀 It is a freeware, and you can download this program here: http://www.cpuid.com/downloads/hwmonitor/hwmonitor_1.28.zip
Temperature Laptop Check Windows 10
- Extract the zipped file first.
- In the extracted folder, you will see two files. (x32, x64)
- Run the x32 one if you are running a 32 bit Windows, and run x64 one if you have 64 bit Windows. Not sure ? Then try both, and one of them will work. 😀 😀 😀
- Now, you will see your computer(laptop) information including processor, power, battery, and temperature like the picture below
If your processor temperature is more than 80 Celsius when it is in idle, you should consider to clean up inside of your computer(laptop) You can use a air compressor to get rid of dusts in air vent. If your computer is older than 3 years, you also will have to apply new thermal compound on CPU and motherboard processors as well as dust clean up. Cleaning the dust is easy, but for putting new thermal compound on motherboard chips, bring your computer to a near computer shop. Thermal compound is a compound that exists between your computer’s processor and heat sink. It helps to transfer heat efficiently from a processor to a heat sink. The compound gets dried as time passes, and this will results a worse cooling performance. Normally, applying a new thermal compound will result a temperature drop of 5 ~ 30 Celsius.
Check My Laptop Temperature Windows 10
if you see the picture above in the battery information section, there is a “Capacities” section. The designed capacity represents the maximum capacity of your laptop battery, and the full charge capacity represents the current maximum capacity of the battery. As you use your laptop more, this value will decrease. The current capacity simply tells you how much energy you have left in your laptop battery. 😀 😀 😀
The “Wear Level” represents your battery condition. If you see “50%”, the maximum charging capacity of your battery is at 50% of 100% The lifespan of your battery became half of it’s original capacity.
We hope this blog post was helpful for everyone. Thank you!
