It just seem strange to me that they both show the exact same value as tmpin2. Amd overdrive cpu temp, easytune 6 cpu temp and tmpin2 shows that load temps goes to 57. Tmpin1 goes to 52 max.
It's at stock speed with a Zalman cnps 7x cooler.

Anyone? A little help here?

Not sure if you're in the right place in the BIOS. If you are, ignore everything this post has to say.
There's two places to go. You're probably adjusting "USB-FDD" "USB-CDROM" but go into the submenu one more down... and you should see the NAMES of your boot devices like for me I have a Patriot USB Stick so it's

1. PATRIOT USB
2. OCZ VERTEX-TURBo
3. SAMSUNG HD322GJ

and you can rearrange the order. THAT'S the menu that you want to be messing with to boot from USB.

So ez tune is wrong, overdrive is wrong, and BIOS is wrong?
Hard to believe BIOS is wrong.
My last post about temps.

Set CPU temp alarm in BIOS to 60c. When Tmpin2 hits 60c the alarm goes off...care to explain how tmpin2 isn't CPU/socket? Atleast 970ud3 works that way. Try it and let us know
post #876 of 3278
Tmpin2 is by far the hottest sensor on my rig. Running an FX 6100 @ 4.4ghz 1.4125v and I'm seeing tempin2 spike upto 57c during cinebench and ~52c Folding. With cool'n'quiet off i'm idling at around ~27c on tmpin2. Originally I thought the sensor was for the vrms but for now I'm going to keep tmpin2 under ~62c due to the bugged FX core sensors.

I would try this but i'm too lazy to install system beep speaker for the alarm to sound

It's the same for the 990xa - at least it is for mine. The alarm goes as soon as tmpin2 reaches 60.

Maybe Gigabyte didn't know what they were doing when they installed the temp sensor??? And they programmed the bios wrong??? And they screwed up ET6??? And at the same time AMD failed with their Overdrive???
Come on... In my eyes there's no doubt anymore - tmpin 2 is the cpu.
post #878 of 3278
So if tmpin2 is cpu then what's tmpin 0/1?
At full load on my setup tmpin0=31c tmpin1=40c.
VRMs and NB heatsinks feel equally hot to the touch while southbridge is barely even warm.
My guess would be 0=SB and 1=NB.
post #879 of 3278
Thomas and Maurauder, are you running stock cooling on your cpu?
Is your NorthBridge stock cooled?

Thomas you said "Come on... In my eyes there's no doubt anymore - tmpin 2 is the cpu."
I understand this is your opinion

Then explain my post in this forum where i show 3 temp readings for cpu with in a few degrees of difference from that of TMPIN1. where as there is a 10 degree difference with TMPIN2...
Post 867

Here is why i think most people are getting confused. 90% have an aftermarket cooler on their CPU yet have a stock cooler on their NB
The aftermarket coolers are actually doing their job in keeping the cpu cool. [that is why we buy them]
the North bridge is working just as hard as the cpu. when you adjust multiplier, FSB and Voltage all of that goes through the NB. so the stock cooler is not cooling as well as it should.


So with my photographic proof it is my opinion that there's no doubt anymore - tmpin 1 is the cpu thumb.gif
post #880 of 3278
As I wrote earlier I have a Zalman cnps 7x cooler on my cpu. I used to use the stock cooler but tmpin2 was running around 61 - 62 (65 max) degrees when gaming. After I changed to the Zalman my tmpin went down to 57 - 58 (60 max) when gaming. Tmpin1 was around 51 - 52 with both coolers.
I guess we won't agree but at least now I am sure which one to keep an eye on.
