Onboard Temp Readings
« on: August 15, 2003, 08:36:09 AM »

i was wondering if the onboard temp readings could be off on my mobo/cpu. i have a barton 2500+ on an asus A7N8X Deluxe mobo. My case is 19c inside, but its reading the processor around 50c, im runningh stock hsf, but the system runs fine, i dont see how the temp could be this high, thanks for any help

no, thats not normal. you should be gettin temps in the mid-high 30's-40's, nowhere near 50. try switching to AS3, and making sure the heatsink is making good contact etc. etc.

E-zKill, what kind of thermal paste do you have on your sink? "an AS3" is Arctic Silver 3, the silver-filled thermal epoxy most people use between their heatsinks and CPU's.

I use an HHC-001 on an overclocked XP1700 running at 1.9GHz, and my temps at 100% load are never higher than 49C, even when ambient temp is almost 90F!

You shouldn't blame Coolermaster, it sounds more like user error.

Using Artic silver 1 i think, had 4 a few yrs now
It just reads Artic silver
Not blaiming no one(any 1) was joking about it  of course the money is the name of the game, bottom line and all that

I even changed the fan, went bigger blowing down sucking up no differance. Lets just say my case is not a quit 1 LoL kinda hard to be user error on a heat sink/fan combo. Possibly bios is not reading right I really need to get a good reading probe tomarrow I think
