I haven't had a chance to look but does programs like Coretemp or HW have something that has and audible warning or shutdown in case of an emergency? Any other advice on my prep will be appreciated as well and hope this is not getting to much off topic.

You are starting to catch on quick wink.gif

Yes, you are absolutely correct. Disable shutdown in BIOS and manually set a shutdown in the Core Temp program under "overheat protection" - which will be reading the actual temp.

Oh this is a relief. I had been going by the "CPU" temperature reading reported by AMD's Overdrive utility which is much higher temperature than the "Core" temperature reading. I was worrying that my cooler wasn't up to the task for my 955 BE CPU.

Might want to throw in a little blurb about if you unlock cores, then you don't have access to core temps anymore and your only choice is to use CPU temps instead.

That's a good point, but in that case I still recommend looking at your Core Temps under load before you unlock, then just noting the changes in your ambient after that. As CPU Temps will vary.

What if the board throttles my clocks when the CPU temp reaches 62 degrees(but core temps are low, 48 degrees)?
is there any way to bypass this behavior?

Yes, there should be a temp listed in your BIOS for that. Mine was set for 62C, but since that's "CPU Temp" in BIOS, I just raised it to 72C. In your case you might want to raise it higher.

Unfortunately my board doesn't have said setting.
the only thing tweakable in hardware monitor is the Q fan settings.
I guess there's no other way than changing motherboards.

Are you running the latest BIOS?

Your VRMs may just be getting too hot also. That will throttle the CPU regardless.

Just started using AOD myself and noticed its readings are about 10-12c higher then HWMonitor and coretemp. I thought at first I was going by the wrong readings but it seems the core temps are accurate. I am running a stock cooler on a X2 555 right now and temps even with AOD were no higher then 55c or so.

So just to be clear the BIOS temps are socket temps correct? That is why they read a few degrees higher in BIOS as what coretemp/HWM read at idle. Under load they get more accurate to a point and the core temps in coretemp and HWM are correct for what the actual cores are running at.
