Configuring SpeedFan

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 


As this is my first post here, I'm not entirely sure I found the right board for this. Apologies if not. Anyway, I'm trying to configure SpeedFan on my wife's PC. Apparently there's two censors that think they're the CPU. The first one I believe should be correct as her CPU is a little overclocked and that temperature seems appropriate. I'm unsure what the other one is though. It says AMD K10 next to it, and that's what the proper CPU censor on my computer says. So what's the deal?

Not 100%, but at first glance it looks like the fan plug ins on your motherboard are reporting back under the "Winbond....". You have it listed as CPU, SYSTEM, and AUX. Makes me think that what you are seeing in fact are fans, and those are the positions on the mobo as to where that fan is plugged into. AMD K10 is the physical CPU, where the Winbond CPU? may be the heatsink fan plugged into the "CPU" fan pin on the mobo.

Unplug the case fans and reboot, see if the Winbond goes away or as 0 rpm next time.

Top one is reading socket temp-second one is reading the core temp.

That's what I thought as well, but why would the fan be reporting a higher temperature than the CPU itself? I know the HSF is there to absorb and dissipate the heat, but I figured the CPU would remain hotter.

Sorry if this is a silly question, but what's the relevance of each?

Edit: Some Google searching helped clarify the rest. Thanks for the help.
