    Hey i just baught a new computer from cyberpowerpc.com and it has a temp. gauge on the front of the case...well anyways i had the comp on for 2 days and the temp never got higher then 81deg , i reboot, go to work all day come home and the temp gauge is flashing. I reboot and it stops, about a hour later it comes back, and again...

    i thought it might be the temp got to high but it starts flashing at like 78 and its been hoter than that before. Im stumped, no instructions, ect with comp...thanks!

    Is it water cooled? What kind of processor? I have a p4 3.0 using the stock heatsink and fan and it runs about 37C or about 100F. So 81 F has to be a water cooled system.

    81f you've got nothing to worry about.
    There's got to be some sort of other hardware issue. Maybe the probe for temp is loose and isn't reading the temp properly.

    these temp things arent accurate , they're only for moral support.
