Trouble Reading Speedfan

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm pretty new to the whole custom computer building world. I recently built my sustem and wanted to overclock it to make it faster.

I downloaded speedfan to monitor my temps as i overclocked and a couple of the temps are reading extremly high. Can anyone tell me what these temps are representing on my board and why they may be running so high?

Here are some screen shots of my idle temps and my stressed temps:

Idle Temps:
Attachment 75868

Stressed Temps:
Attachment 75869

You can use another program to monitor temps. Everest will work, but I'm not sure if Core Temp works with AMD chips.

However, Temp1 is your CPU, the other readings are not right for a CPU.

Try CoreTemp or HWmonitor

HWmonitor is the easiest to read, I higly recommend it

So if they are correct readings, any idea why temp:3 why make such a drastic jump?

I can't read those two pics, they won't enlarge when I click on them or hover.

If you are on stock cooling, a jump of 30C at most from idle to load can be considered normal.

Temp:3 is jumping from 5c to 112c. Almost instantly, in under 1 min of running orthos.

Temp 3 is useless in that case. Unless your ambient temp is 0C and you are running a chip without a heatsink, that is impossible, I call it a faulty sensor. I have on my other PC a constant 124C as temp 3 or 4, just ignore it.
