Temp Sensing problem with 680i's??

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Is there a known temp sensing problem with 680i's ?

I just switched out from an Asus P5K p35 chipset and I used to run my Q6600 at 3.6 at 1.4875v 24/7 with temps always under 70c.

After switching to my eVGA 680i, the cpu takes the same voltage, 1.48v and it boots up fine, stable as ever; only problem is that core 0 and 3 are reading as the same, and core 1 and core 2 are reading as the same.

With my P5K at 3.6, i'd typically get 40, 40, 35, 35 idle.

With 680i at 3.6, I typically get 46,39,39,46 idle, and load temps are obscene for core 0 and core 3, but core 1 and 2 never exceed 70c.

I've reseated the TRUE a couple times, used Shin-Etsu, AS5 using the line method, ugh, I'm starting to get frustrated...

What's more, when using various temp programs, I'm getting different readings, RealTemp is different from CoreTemp and SpeedFan.

The only good thing I can say is that I have no vdroop, and I even get overvolted by .01v so that's nice...

here's a screenie, sorry if it's too big..


Any thoughts would be nice...

I'm beggining to have a hunch that there's a temp sensing problem.

I knew before I got the 680i that I needed to Lap my processor, but now I have even more reason to. My TRUE is lapped, however the Q6600 isn't.

All input much appreciated... Rep + for all those who help out...

I don't know if I'm being stupid or not, but with a voltage that high I think those temps are pretty ok. It looks like the 79 is some sort of glitch, and might be able to be ignored. It's not like the cores are all that far apart, right? Well, that's my silly logic for ya!

Anyway, nice mobo. And nice job with the vdroop mod. Although, somebody (ericoed) told me that if I do the vdroop mod and the voltage goes up instead of down, then I should wipe a little bit of the lead off with my finger until it is perfectly steady. And that's exactly what I did with mine. It doesn't move now. No vdroop, and no vRise either!



Edit: Hey, nice sound card too!

Thanks for the advice, 5cheese... much appreciated..

I will lap my cpu to lessen temps further, but I still think there's something wrong with my temps. I will try reseating a bunch of times too, but I doubt it will help...

I'm willing to bet im not the only one out there with this problem..
