Wierd Readings on mobo

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So i bought a new cheap mobo from ECS with a G31 chipset... The problem is a get some wierd readings on the sensors from all the programs (everest,HWinfo, etc....) The 12v output is stuck at 8.58v doesnt move at all and the mobo temp is reported 128C!.... I dont know if its a sensor bug or something or its actually true... Im able to overclock my 3870 to expected values but those readings keep gettin on my nerves... My previous mobo would report them as they are but this one is pissin me off... The only reason i bought this one is to get dual channel.
PS. I think this happened after i flashed to a new bios to support my cpu not sure though...

um dude chill with the temps atleast put your hand on the northbridge heatsink and if your hand doesnt instantly flash into flame your sensor is fscked just like mine my mobo temp is a 127c constant since i mounted it and the temp sensor stuck to it says 27c so im not worrying
but the 12v you should check with a voltmeter

if nothing else works flash it to an older version of the bios or RMA it

ECS BIOS suck.... I have one. The thing reads my CPU temperature at 25C constant always and my Vcore is reported as like 2v!!! It's just the BIOS and sensors.
Once again...

Yea thats what i thought... I just figured it was a cheap kinda overclockable mobo with dual channel support
