Extremely Low Temps: X2 5000 BE - Page 3

post #21 of 22
my proc used to register reasonable temps until i pushed it too far one day (fooling around on suicide runs)

now i idle at 9-11C and load at 30C, lol

but i know it's in the low 50's during orthos from before my temp sensor broke

We can assume AMD didn't decide to mess around with the sensor just for the Brisbane or any other core. We can also assume that AMD knows how to build a temp sensor by now. Being the case, it is most likely a motherboard issue over a CPU issue. While not ruling out the CPU, I say it tends to be more the motherboard for these temp reading issues.
Duckie, interesting. I'll keep my eye out and suggest a BIOS update to resolve those issues
