Any fixes for the E8400 stuck temp?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm running my newly purchased (from eBay) e8400 cpu on my GA-P35-DS3L motherboard. It was cheap, and I hope to get by on LGA 775 until I deploy in March and come back a year later and can build myself a new PC.

Unfortunately, I'm experiencing an issue that seems to have happened to a bunch of people years ago when the E8400s were the hot new thing: my temps are stuck at 40 degrees C. I've tried a ton of different monitoring software, and I've updated the bios to the latest version, with no luck. Have there been any solutions to this issue?

Thanks!

As far as I'm aware, it's an issue with the CPU silicon and not something that can be fixed externally.

Are your temperatures reflecting higher values when it is under load? If so, I wouldn't worry about it (they're prone to being inaccurate at values the lower they go anyway). Some were stuck in a way that they wouldn't reflect values below a certain point, but they'd reflect higher values. My current Core 2 Duo E8600 seemingly doesn't reflect values below 29C (at least I've never seen it go lower), but it works fine otherwise.

As the others have said, its an internal flaw with the CPU. You cant really unstick the sensor persay. If you can read temps above 40c I wouldnt worry too much about it.
