Re: Ubuntu Hardy and Ibex Works Great on a ThinkStation D10

[ Edited ]
Core 0: +44.0°C (high = +84.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)

Do you know where the High and critical numbers  come from?

Are they accurate?

Re: Ubuntu Hardy and Ibex Works Great on a ThinkStation D10

5 minutes with glxgears running and the side door off raises the Quatro to 56 C or 133F.

The cores are 109F to 117F. 

Shutting the side door and allowing the glxgears to run for 5 more minutes: 

Quatro to 60 C or 140F and the CPU cores are 115F to 129F (46C-51C)

 

What do you get if you run glxgears for 10 minutes?

Just got back on line, If you wish to change colors on the bar graph, right click the sensor you wish to change and select preferences, then click on sensors, Go to the list on left side and click on the sensor you wish to change bar color on, like dev/sda1 and then select properties, then click on the colored bar, move the outer circle to the color you wish to use and then close it. I changed mine to celcius to compare with yours and I have Hardrive 38C, Core 1 23C, and core 0 23C.

 

I don't game though. And I run Normal desktop effects, I am not a fan of eyecandy. I like to go fast on page loading.

I am not a gamer either.

The color is not the matter but the idea that the meter is at the top (hot) rather than the bottom (cool). 

Seems we might have to know the temp extremes of the device and input that manually.

I finally see by your post about Nvidia Graph vs the icon graph. I haven't changed my settings in properties to try and match another graph, I would pay attention to your Nvidia readout and I think, but can't swear to it, that you can change the values on the installed icon in properties in the sensor section I mentioned earlier. I would use the Nvidia sensor as a guide as it is already calibrated for that card. While the linux sensor program you installed is Generic probably. The sensor Limit Table in properties is what you'll have to dither with is my guess for it to match your Nvidia readout.

Re: Ubuntu Hardy and Ibex Works Great on a ThinkStation D10

That was my sense also. 

Makes you wonder what the CPU cores should be set too also...

Re: Ubuntu Hardy and Ibex Works Great on a ThinkStation D10

Our computers are so different, that I have no clue. My posts show everything is running cool, so no reason for me to change anything. You pose an interesting Question though. Roundabout way of finding out, is finding somebody with Windows installed on a box like yours,Having Installed Everest Home edition, and see what Everests sensor page section says about the temps.

Re: Ubuntu Hardy and Ibex Works Great on a ThinkStation D10

The WEB PAGE: 

http://www.intel.com/products/processor/xeon5000/documentation.htm

The DATASHEET PDF:

http://download.intel.com/design/xeon/datashts/318589.pdf

The PDF page is 79...

 

So would one say between 63C to 70C is the max? 

 

The sensors program is set to 80C for the high. But the question is for us to know if that is generic or accurate? 

 

I have a X5400 series CPU.

Re: Ubuntu Hardy and Ibex Works Great on a ThinkStation D10

Looking at the table graph on 6.3   I read on this chart::  Quadcore Intel  R Xeon R Processor E5400 Series Thermal Profile (page 86)

 

0 Watts =43 to 65 watts= 62.6 degrees Centigrade  

 

But according to page 83 you are 

 

0 watts = 42.8 to  115 watts 62.2 degress centigrade.

 

I've been busy at another Linux forum, sorry for the late reply. I would go at  70 degrees as the absolute max  because if it ever pegs out you know you are in trouble. Me though, I would set it at 62 degrees centigrade as max, because if it pegs out, you'll notice it quicker if it gets hot.
