Problem with P5NSLI Temp Monitor?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I recently (6 days ago) upgraded from a P5ND2-SLI to the same Motherboard that you have (P5NSLI). I am trying to build up untill I can afford a E6600, so I upgraded my Mobo.

I Kept my same exact proc (Intel 630 3.0 Gig P4) and my same cooler (Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 with AC MX-01 Thermal Compound) But I have noticed a TEN DEGREE CELSIUS increase from my old P5ND2 Mobo and I cannot figure out why!!

Is there any chance that perhaps there is some bug with the P5NSLI temperature reading or something along those lines?

I am by no means an expert on this stuff, but I have built a few computers and I cannot place the reason why on this P5NSLI board I am showing well over a 10 degree celsius rise in operating temp, and im curious if there is possibly something wrong with the board?

Would anyone have any other reason that I am missing as to why I would go from 32c Idle - 41c Load up to 44c Idle - 52c Load when all i did was replace my PSU and upgrade to a newer version of the P5N Mobo? Should I be concerned that maybe something is messed up with my new configuration? Or Possibly some other reason why upgrading motherboards would cuase my CPU to just run alot hotter?

P.S. If it has any bearing, at the same time I also replaced my old Harddrive with a 2x250Gb WD Sata Raid 0 setup if this somehow has a major effect on CPU operating temps.

My current specs as follows (having just upgraded PSU and Mobo)

Mobo - P5NSLI
CPU - Intel 630 3.0 Ghz
RAM - 2 Gb Corsair 675 XMS2 DDR2
PSU - Corsair HX 520W
Heatsink - Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 with AC Mx-01 Thermal Compound

No a change in motherboard would not lead to CPU temp increase unless the CPU was overclocked..However you havent stated so.

Now sometimes it is normal for there to be a misreading temp probe...This can happen if its faulty or due to the BIOS or software you are using to monitor the temp.

Make sure you have updated your BIOS to the latest version as this may help...However dont use the Beta bios's. Aswel as that try different Temp monitoring programs such as Speedfan found here :http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php

Hi. thanks for the quick response Enterprise.

I should have stated all the things you mentioned originally


I am getting my temperature readings from Speedfan, Everest, Asus Probe 2 AND from my BIOS and they are all reading within a few degrees celsius of each other.

Right now I am running at 44c at Idle and the current ambient temp in my room is ~22c (~72f).

I have also checked on a BIOS update from the P5NSLI and Asus does not currently have a newer one listed than the 0601 that came with board.

Also, I have not overclocked at all becuase I have been concerned with the temps that I am reading. Even under a light load I am hitting 55c, and I keep my room freezing with the Air Blasting all day.


Would there be any other way to test the temp of the CPU, or someway to test if I might have a faulty reading?

Also, a guy from work said maybe this new motherboard is sending a higher Vcore voltage to the CPU and that might be making it to run hot even at idle? Would this be possible at all?

Anyways, thx for the reply.
