Here is an image of all of the temps,

http://s1296.photobucket.com/user/NikRye/media/Untitled_zps0bf429a1.png.html

Speccy, Speedfan, HWMonitor, and CoreTemp all seem about the same. Nothing has changed since I pulled it out of the cubby, giving sides and top open air and more space in front and rear. Even after opening the side of case it only went up a little.

I would love to make the fans turn faster, but there is no way to in my BIOS that I know of, and Speedyfan I'm not familiar with. It has three PWM, one is at 100% and the other two are at 27% everytime I open it.....so not sure how to use that to better my temps. I'm about to check my BIOS real quick.

Okay in BIOS it sits at 34-36C, as SOON as I boot up and hit desktop, then open HWMonitor, it is at 58, and jumps from 50 to 60C just from browsing and doing regular stuff....***! Should I get the stock heatsink and just test it out to compare and see if its my heatsink? I might get the Hyper 212, only 30 bucks but from what the other poster was saying it isn't that good of a cooler.....>.< What would be a good water cooler for this thing? like an H70 or something? Just simple and bolt on?

I'm still trying to stay in a budget here, this is really digging into my funds for bills..

SIgh, now i'm looking at the Cooler master V8, the Noctua NH D-14 if it will fit, or the NZXT Havik 140....Still I would assume since I'm NOT overclocking, then the STOCK heatsink should provide these same temps. The aftermarket cooler should be doing far better, could it be a problem with the fan? Or maybe airflow? three intake fans only one exhaust?

Also, how do you guys mount the fans on top? The stock fans that come with this case have long screws/bolts and I can't find a way to attach them to the top >.< I may need to look through my hardware for other bolts/screws

Before I did anything I would try to redownload the hardware monitor or try to get a newer version because that doesn't sound right. If the UEFI shows that low that's what I would believe. Try another temp monitor or something. For the best results I would recommend the Noctua for Air and an H100i for a closed loop W/C if yu wanted to go that way.

I will try that, but I also read this,

http://www.legitreviews.com/article/2047/16/

And i'm thinking of trying the stock cooler. If they maxed it at 61C under prime95 load, and such, then me gaming should be fine. I'm not OC'ing yet. Again this is all temporary until I get a better cooler, budget is my main concern. That noctua is pushing it in price....>.< I am leaning toward the hyper 212 evo for a temporary fix.

Also, even if HWmonitor was wrong, what about the other four included in that picture?
post #3726 of 8430
Give the stock cooler a shot before you spend more money chasing a problem. Make sure HWMonitor is up to date and that you have the most recent drivers for your motherboard.

Okay NOW I'm really weirded out. Prime 95 is showing me at 3C and under load around 40C...CoreTemp is showing the same, BUT speccy, HWMonitor, and Speedyfan are all showing 40C idle and 90c load... I did check HWMonitor and the motherboard and drivers were just installed the other day, from CD. How do I make sure they are up to date.
post #3728 of 8430
I think you might have a screwed up motherboard. Check with the manufacturer, you may need to RMA the board or just return it to the store you bought it from.

Well is there any way I can test the motherboard? To see if its faulty? Right now I'm running a Prime95 Stress Test and all four cores are at 67C...That little weird bit of 0C and 30C earlier may have just been a hiccup..

But how can I test the board?
post #3730 of 8430
I have done some research and found that a lot of people are reporting high temps on APU's. Not sure but it could be a problem with the chip.

Not sure I could do anything more to test the system then what you have done already.
