    Temperatures


    I have no idea if im in the right section of the forum, or if this forum even helps with this kind of problems but ill try. (feel free to move my thread/delete it if im in wrong section or entirely wrong forum).

    Computer: Acer Aspire V3-771G with i5-3230M (internal HD 4000) and external Geforce GT 740M. System model: NC-V3-771G-53238G75MAII.


    I have now been watching my computers temperatures with the SpeeFan program becouse my computer is getting hotter than usually (Its very hot season here where i live and it propably has a part to this). Still, i know what all of those temperatures means (GPU, HDD, Core1, Core2) but i dont know what Temp1 means. When i checked it out it said ACPI under the chip section. What does that mean ? Is it my motherboard or what ? I has been going between 70-80Celcius. Id just like to know what temperature is that so i can find out more information about it and see if its too hot. (I tried to google it alot and some ppl said it is a motherboard and some ppl said it is related to my cpu/gpu temps).

    If im in entirely wrong forum, can someone suggest me some forum where i can go to ?

    Thanks.

    If you do not have air conditioning and running the computer in hot ambient air. The readings are going to be high. I use Core Temp on my son's laptop. It does a better job then Speed Fan in reading the temps. A lot of heat comes from the hard drives alone. Next is the GPU if you are pushing it really hard.

    ACPI is an outdated standard basically. "First released in December 1996, ACPI defines platform-independent interfaces for hardware discovery, configuration, power management and monitoring. With the intention of replacing Advanced Power Management, the MultiProcessor Specification and the Plug and Play BIOS Specification,[1] the standard brings power management under the control of the operating system, as opposed to the previous BIOS-central system which relied on platform-specific firmware to determine power management and configuration policy.[2]The specification is central to Operating System-directed configuration and Power Management (OSPM), a system implementing ACPI which removes device management responsibilities from legacy firmware interfaces."

    I think bro23 is right. That particular standard is way outdated and nobody is supporting it anymore. The reading is most likely meaningless for most systems. Surprised anyone writing temp monitoring programs still use it.

    2011 it was supposed to be picked up by the UEFI Forum, to redesign it for the future. Linux is the big push on doing this, along with Apple. The reading is a hold over from the XP days and the old bios standard. Now if only they could get the boot loader and secondary boot loader out of the Cave Man days.
