Movement and electricity generate heat, and everything measures heat in different ways. Cars have a temperature gauge on the dashboard to let the driver know when the engine is too hot to function properly. Unfortunately, an indicator for overheating is not automatically included in most computers. Extra noise and slowed processing speeds may be symptoms of an overheating central processing unit (CPU), but there is no flashing red light telling you to figuratively pull over and check under the hood. Fortunately, free software exists that can help you check and

Regardless of how powerful your PC is, there’s no way it can play modern games without a dedicated graphics processing unit (GPU). The GPU is responsible for rendering the images onscreen and houses the powerful processing muscle needed to handle high frame rates and intense graphics required by modern titles.  Like all PC components, GPUs age or fail over time. There are many reasons why a GPU may malfunction. The cooling fans can get worn out or blocked by dust and grime. If they stop working, the GPU can overheat

What is the ideal CPU temperature range?

The central processing unit (CPU) in a PC needs to run at an optimal temperature to perform at its best. Most CPUs operate at a relatively low temperature when they are under a light load, and the temperature increases as certain tasks demand more processing power. If the temperature gets too high, it can lead to performance issues or damaged components. Modern CPUs have built-in thermal protection and can throttle performance if the CPU gets too hot. Sometimes a hot CPU can also cause the PC to shut down. Persistent
