    okay, so i started monitoring my computer temp lately and i noticed that all my temps stuck around 22c. - 40c. except for one. my cpu kernel temp hangs around 70c. is that normal? what the hell is a cpu kernel, so i can cool it down, and finally what the is the acpi temp.

    That's pretty high. I'm surprised it hasn't shut itself off. Who built that machine? Did they use any heatsink compound?

    i built it, but as for the heatsink compound that depends, i have no idea what the cpu kernel is so i cant tell u if there's a heatsink on it or not. would that be the actual processor? or is it something else?

    What CPU is the question that have been asked, and that you should have said to start with?
    Different CPUs have different idle temps.

    It also depends on which heatsink you used; stock or third-party.


    Where are you getting this read of CPU kernel..what program?

    i was starting to think that, i got speed fan and when i that temperature i checked the reading in bios. it said
    system temp:34c.
    cpu temp: 30c.
    cpu kernel temp: 70c.
    i had no idea what that meant but i figured it was high so i came here
    but as for my cpu i pulled it off an old computer and this is what it says
    x86 family based 15 model 2 stepping genuineintel ~2659mhz
    if it helps my motherboard is an aopen ax4per
