Weird CPU temp readings on P5K-Dlx

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
While doing an overnight Orthos run a few nights ago, I woke up the next morning (Orthos had been running around 8 hours) and SpeedFan reported my CPU temp as 106°C. It was 48°C when I left it the night before.

It did the same thing last night. PC Probe reports the same 106° temp. Even if I close PC Probe and SpeedFan, the CPU temp is stuck @ 106°C. I have to reboot the PC for the CPU temp reading to return to normal.

Has anyone else experienced this anomaly? I'm pretty sure it's an invalid reading, since I'm pretty sure it would have died by now if that temp were correct.....

Maybe the screensaver is causing it somehow? I am going to start disabling the screensaver when I run Orthos overnight and see if it goes away... I'm concerned that the mobo may have a problem?

Never trust software sensor readings. Most likely the sensor is being misread, as it is likely that the temperature would net change if the sensor was broken.

ive heard about those surviving 120C if i remember correctly. cant really say its good for 'em obviously.
have you tried reseating the HSF?
though sometimes the temp readings fudge up.

EDIT: gah, been beaten to it. 1 minute over a friggin' hour.

Well I know there's nothing wrong with the HSF, my load temp @ 3.9Ghz is 48°C after 12 hours ORTHOS load.

It's just I freaked out this morning when I woke up and checked up on it, ORTHOS was @ 12 hours still running 2 instances fine with no problems. Mobo temp was 32°C but CPU temp showed 106°C. Had to reboot, went back in ORTHOS, load temp was back down to 48°C lol.

Something is weird with PC Probe and SpeedFan, or the temp sensor is whacking out sometimes. I can leave it running for 6 hours during the day and it never goes above 48°C.

I'm really more interested in hearing from anyone else who has experienced this anomaly, or I may RMA this mobo to newegg.

try a physical temp sensor if you have one. if it displays 106C again, just measure the real temps.
