Speedfan can give plenty of errors and you got one. No big deal just move on from it. Typically temp3 is your mobo and temp2 is your cpu, however to match 'em up I suggest you check the BIOS for accurate temps.

Mr Pink-
In my case it seems that Temp1 is CPU, and temp2 is mobo, but what part of mobo I dont know. This matches up with what Asus Probe2 says. There is almost always a 10*C difference between the 2 readings at idle. So mobo temp maybe close to ambient temp? Naaa, exhaust is just above 80*F. Oh well!
This afternoon I cleaned off the Ceramique with 91% alcohol, applied a dab of AS5 and re-mounted the cooler. I'm getting quite good at it now, can do it in just a few minutes. Idle temps are at 34*C/44*C with a clock of 2.676. I will run some stress test later, let it settle in some.

^^It would probably be the Northbridge its monitoring. That is what mine monitors and I think most other peoples mobo's.

OK, so Temp2 is Northbridge, what then is the Core temp that Speedfan is monitoring? It is rather erratic , it spikes up to 43*C and down to 41*C around a
base line of 42*C. They are rather quick little spikes of short duration.
Curious!

Good job! It will drop a little more soon.

Have you tried PC Probe II that came with the motherboard sofware? It works well on mine for showing accurate temps.

Yes, Compaddict, I am using it now, along with the Aiboost dashboard, and they track together exactly. Now I am curious as to what the Core temp is that Speedfan is tracking. Just nosey, but it will spike up to about 60*C when I run Burnmax and it makes me nervous.

I'm not sure, but there are a lot of posts that say speedfan is not very accurate. I trust the ones that came with the board and they match the Bios readings perfectly on mine. Core temp is what you worry about most with overclocking. What are your temps under load?
post #48 of 100
If its the core temp I am thinking of it may be the I dont know how to say it chipset? i.e. AMD K8. The newest version of speedfan now reads this. I dont pay too much attention to it as it does get very high.

Compaddict- Sorry I'm late answering, left the shop about 10:00 last nite.
I use Burnmax for a quick and dirty test, it will max-out both CPU's instantly so I get a quick test. My ambient temp in the room is about 27*C, I'm clocked at 2.676 and my CPU temp is 54*C, MB temp is 36*C. Seedfan says my Core temp is 57*C and rising. Only been running an hour.

Mr Pink- seems I read some where that the Version I've got does monitor the K8.

Oops, the Core temp just hit 60*C and it bsod! Maybe I need to know more about this Core thingy after all. Wheeeee!

I looked up you case to see your air flow design. How many case fans are you running, what size and CFM?

Your case is almost identical to mine. I have 2-120mm 100 CFM Mad Dog case fans, (1 in front drawing air in, and 1 in the rear pulling air out). I took the stock 120 off the back and mounted it on the side panel pulling air in (Took off the plastic vent tube). I'm not sure if yours has an 80mm hole there by the pics but I would put one that fits in there. It needs to compensate for the air draw (CFM) from the PSU. I have equal air in and out, that's what you want.

If you just have the one stock 120mm fan that came with your case, I doubt you have much air flow at all. Let me know.
