It would have been easier to see if you'd shown a screenshot of the HWinfo Sensor Window open. tongue.gif
I looked through the whole BIOS and didn't find anything like that, but I did find something I missed the first time, SPU state 6 or something like that. Said something about saving power so I turned it off.

EDIT: My HWinfo program shows no graphs anywhere even when the sensor page is open.

Same results. As soon as it gets above 61 celcius, it throttles.

I was only referring to the window on the left of the screen shot. The graphs are AI Suite II.

All I can suggest is to run the CPU at stock for now and save for a beefier motherboard to upgrade in the future. Keep it cool until then to prevent throttling.

Thank you so much for your help. Do you have a bitcoin address I can send a tip to? Also, do you have a suggestion on how to choose a motherboard or a link to help me?

My personal favorite is the Sabertooth but this Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 Rev.4 seems to be a very good board at a more reasonable price http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4672#ov. I would give you other links but don't know where you live or shop so that's the Home site for Gigabyte.

The Sabertooth is a very fine board IDD -> The that I PMed you about is one step down from the saberkitty, the UD3 is nice, but I'd choose the M5A990FX Pro R 2.0 over it personally, and they should be available for a similar price.
