Weird temp's and vCore "Help"

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
So I have a weird core temp issue I can't seem to figure out. I have my FX 8120 clocked at 4.2 Ghz and 1.25v Stable with prime95. I have 2 separate Hdd's one with windows 7 Ultimate (Regular HDD) and the other with windows 7 Home (SSD). When I log onto the Regular HDD I get Idle temps of 42c and 54c max @ a constant 1.36v core.. When I'm on the SSD I get idle temp of 22c and max of 33 @ a constant 1.25v core. I have my vCore set to manual @ 1.25v.. Why does it change on my regular HDD? I'm not overclocking Ram, NB, or anything else in bios.

No reason or suggestions?

Does the OS on the regular HD have any motherboard applications or overclocking applications running?

Was AMD overdrive ever installed on it? If so, are the settings still in effect?

Otherwise, I'm totally ******* dumbfounded!

I'm using Core Temp 1.0

I use to have AMD overdrive installed but I uninstalled it a while ago. i don't have any other programs running besides the regular windows process, Avast, Comodo Firewall, peer blocker, and firefox. My cpu usage doesn't exceed 40% and Idle's at 1 to 5%

It weird because it seems like after I boot up my temp and vCore are normal on the regular HD, but after some time then the temps and vCore raise.

I'm lost... only thing I can think of would be to back up your data, format it and try a fresh install of windows - it must be a software thing because the BIOS wouldn't care what HD or OS it booted from, it will still hold its values unless something in Windows is accessing the BIOS and changing something.

Open MSconfig and look at the boot processes - make double sure that nothing like that above is going on. Also open the task manager and ensure that nothing is running that can be causing this...

Boot into safe mode and see if it happens again.

If that doesn't work, I'm out of ideas I think...

Let me know how it goes.. (Safe mode should be a good test)

I've done what i can and no change. I rally don't wanna have to do a clean install because there is so much value time spent on this HD and I don't have the means to back it all up. Maybe its registry problem? Should I try a registry clean something like registry booster maybe? I hear people say their not a good idea and maybe this wouldn't help my problem anyway, i donno. I left my cpu in sleep mode last night and resumed back to windows and my temps are high again along with my vCore rising.. I don't understand.

Do you have another power supply lying around? I would suggest borrowing one from a friend if not and give that shot - it's a shot in the dark but this is really odd...

I just got a brand new Corsair 750TX, not even a week old. My other PSU got sent back to Thermaltake under warrentee.
