Temps Below Ambient, Help.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I installed a 360mm Rad and I checked my ambient. I don't know what's wrong but my temps get to 14C when the ambient is at about 75F which is 24C approx. AMD overdrive and Speccy give me these numbers. Do these sensors go bad over time?
Even my mobo temps are at 23C and my chipset is not being cooled at all, it's just got the stock MSI heatsink on it.

That's odd, athlon's aren't known for inaccurate temp sensors. Your motherboard may need a BIOs update though?

Try these temp monitoring software to make sure temps are correct:
