AMD FX 4100 bad temperature readings.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Good day everyone!


Today I have a problem with my AMD FX 4100 CPU, concerning the core temperatures. I've had this CPU for almost a year now and since I first Installed it everithing showed good in the BIOS, but when I try to read the temperatutres from any program it will show insanely low temps, like 8° or 14°c. While in the BIOS it's showing 42° - 36°c. I also have tested in Windows 7 x86 - x64 and Now in Windows 8.1 x64 and it dodn't seem to change nothing. It's very annoying because I never know if the CPU is too hot when gaming or overclocking. Here are some screens of a variety of software I've used, and all of them don't work.

Thanks in advance for your hel and suggestions.

TMPIN0 is your CPU temperature. You could be reading the wrong temp in the bios and its showing you the CPU temp, not the CPU core/package temp.

So how do I change to the temperature I need? As I said the bios one is perfect but something is wrong with the one in the OS.

The TMPIN0 is your CPU Temp, not the Core/Package Temp.

You said the BIOS is showing 36°c to 42°c. The TMPIN0 is showing 37°c, which is the CPU temp that your seeing in your BIOS.

The BIOS isn't showing you the Core/Package Temp. Its showing you the CPU Temp. Try downloading the updated HWMonitor, I believe mine says CPU, Mainboard, etc... instead of the TMPIN0.

I don't know much about Speccy, but I'm not sure if there is an option to change that. It's reading your CPU Core Temp though.

just need some input here. Basically, is my CPU voltage too much? its a FX-6100

I believe I reached the limit for my CPU temp 62, during the WIn Exp Index Rating, mabey it wont let me go past 62 C.


Running a GA78LMTUSB3 Gigabyte, and from what I've been told, TMPIN2 is the heatsink, right, 0 is the MOBO, and 1 is the CPU socket? Have I got it right. Whats the limit on the NB Heatsink temp?

Once again, should I lower the voltage a notch? I've got K8 C&Q on thats it.

Oh now I get it! Sorry I didn't understand at first. Thank you very much!.

Core Temp Idle temps are wrong. Load temps is what you should keep an eye on. Just start Core Temp. Play a game and Alt+Tab out to see your CPU temp.
