81C Idle CPU temp

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 


Wow. I think my sensor must be completely broken
Here is an an earlier thread about my temperature problems

The core temps are great, but look at those CPU temps!
I touched the heatsink, and the lowest part of it, it's as cool as can be.

Can anyone tell me if there is a way for my motherboard to monitor core temp instead of "CPU" temp
It's really annoying because my CPU fan started working full speed.

P.S. Theres no way that its actually 81C riiight...?

That CAN'T be correct. As for another way of monitoring temperatures; I'm no help there.

Edit: Oh I see what you mean, as long as the core temps are fine I wouldn't be worried.

Thats really wierd, that one sensor has to be messed up there's no way it could be 80c while the cores are that low. I don't think there is any way to make the mb show core temps instead of cpu temp. Why do you need it anyway, whats wrong with using coretemp?

I was going to say coretemp says 29C and 30C why dont you trust this if the cpu was "cool" near the base?

The fact that my fan sounds like a turbine since my bios actually thinks that im at 80C...

Ive read around something about PECI enabling disabling or something like that
anyone here wanna share some knowledge?

to ojx wit regards to disabling options in bios its suggested to turn off C1E, CPU EIST. they do hamper ocing. C1E usually enters C1 state and reduces core clock to system bus ratio & VID. EIST manages clock and VID to best serve the thermal performance and power requirements. now if you oc your board wit these on well lets jus say you run in to a few problems and the pc wont allow some oc settings and will report core speed wrong or drop core speed. hope this helps guys.

so you have the exact opposite problem? your core temperature is malfunctioning?

The setting he is looking for may not be on his board, ive been told that it helps calibrate the temp sensors. I dont have any problems with speedstep at all, in fact I think its a waste of power and your processor to have it off but thats just my own opinion ]

Your board may not have it but im not sure, I know mine does not as I have looked for it. Have you tried using speedfan, try version 1.44 and see what that tells you for temp. your fans are spinning so fast because yes your bios thinks that your running 81c whether you are or not, if you turn off fan control it wont do that but until we figure out what the problem is leave it that way. What bios are you running? I think 1002 is the latest, thats what I am running you may want to update your bios and see if your temp sensor reading changes at all, also try resetting your bios and setting your oc back to stock and see what your temps say.

My bios version is 1803, and the newest one is a beta bios which supports 45nm processors, which is useless for me so I dont think I want to update
I might, however, downgrade my bios because apparently every bios before my current one had the PECI feature.
