Interpreting lm-sensors's output

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

I just got a new fanless mini-ITX board and am concerned about
its temperature.
lm-sensors only finds two temperature sensors on this board:

   % sensors
   Adapter: PCI adapter
   temp1:        +51.0°C  
   Adapter: PCI adapter
   temp1:        +51.5°C  (high = +70.0°C)
                          (crit = +100.0°C, hyst = +97.0°C)

IIUC both of those are sensors within my E350 processor (the first on
the GPU, the second on the CPU).
Now here's my question: how can I figure out what temperature is "safe"
or what is "too high"?

OT1H the "high=70" and "crit=100" would seem to give me the answer, but
OTOH I don't know whether I can trust them (actually, I hope some of
the output is "wrong" since the sensor readings go up routinely to 80°
during long compilations).
