    system over heating?

    A person I am helping has a computer with Intel Active Monitor installed. Three zones are being monitored - the processor zone, system zone 1 and system zone 2. There are two fans in addition to the processor cooling fan. When the computer is used to do printing, the system zone 2 goes over the limit and gives off visual and audio alerts. The limit is set to 50 degrees. I have never worked with Intel Active Monitor and do not know if the limit is set too low or if there is really a problem. Any suggestions or other guidance will be appreciated.

    50 is low - bump it up to 60

    Re: system over heating?

    The two other fans are case fans. One in the front pulling air in and one in the back pushing air out. The CPU temp is good - less than 50 degrees. I cleaned dust from fans and heat sink on the processor. I have already raised the threshold temp for the zone 2 and my friend has not called me back so I am assuming all is well. Thanks for your input.

    Added afterthought - My comment above, "50 is low" is not correct. I should have said, "50 is not high".
