Could we get that video you mentioned? Would be of great help
LOL THE VIDEO. I had totally forgotten about it!!! The YT upload crashed, I got mad, and never re-uploaded it
I'l process it again, and once it's done I'll post the link
And did you find any software that correctly measures the temp? At the moment I'm trusting my BIOS/Asrock AXTU/OCCT/Speedfan. Coretemp, HWmonitor and even AMD Overdrive give really erratic readings.
Not really, I stuck a NTC probe to the very side of the die, saw it never went past 47ºC under very heavy load, and didn't even bother to find anything to monitor it.

Besides that, the most accurate way AMD CPUs have to measure temp is a relative value, that is how much we have until we reach the limit. There was a lot of info in AMD docs, a member of this board pointed me to those docs, but can't recall who was.
If your CPU is at 71º, and the heatsink is much cooler, improper heat transfer can be the cause. I guess CoreTemp shows the same value, right?
HWMonitor reports 75ºC under heavy load. SpeedFan can't get a reading. AMD Overdrive reports 5ºC. AIDA64 reports 35ºC. CoreTemp reports 35ºC. EasyTune6 reports 41ºC. The BIOS reads 14ºC just after restarting it, and quickly climbs into the mid 30s.
The sensors on this thing are flippin' crazy
