Is SpeedFan accurate and is my system overheating?

I have used this computer for over 8 years now: Name : NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT , Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E8500 @ 3,16GHZ installed memory(RAM): 4,00 GB
SpeedFan reads:
System: 121C
CPU: 44C
AUX: 42C
Temp: 121C
Core 0: 45C
Core 1: 45C
i have used hwmonitor program it also shows system: 121C, if this is problem how to fix it ?

  1. Try Speccy and post a picture.

  2. System temps at 121C would cause an instant shutdown of the computer regardless of what component it was, so that's obviously just a bad reading. Your CPU temps look fine, and I can't see your GPU temps but I can't imagine it'd be too terribly high.

  3. Stupid question but when was the last time you cleaned out your system? Make sure that all your fans are indeed working as well.

    Also you may want to try and maybe pull, clean and re thermal paste the cooler back on.

  5. Your PC is old so it doesn't have many sensors. Anyway, you should clean your PC from dust. For example, my motherboard temperature is around 36C in idle. I'm not sure if that number(61C) is correct tho. Do you have any problems?

    Yes my computer is very noisy, other else, this is quite good and fast computer, sometimes i feel its going to explode because if this noise..

  7. If its noise then the fans are either going bad or having to work harder then normal to push air. Get some canned air, open up your case and give it a good cleaning, and while it's open start it up and make sure all the fans look like they are working right. You can buy new fans pretty cheap if thats the issue.
