a 2800+ running at 60 idle?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
i dont know about this one, checked the HS and fan many times, arctic 5 applied, case temp is 29 idle 36 load, the processor claims to be 60 idle and 64 load which makes absolutely NO sense.. are the sensors lying to me?

Are you using Speedfan or a similar program, or seeing these temps in your BIOS? If you're using Speedfan, go into your BIOS and check your temps. That seems really high. How is the airflow in your case?

You've got an abit MB. Make sure you update your BIOS as some of the earlier one's have Incorrect CPU temp readings. Mine was reading like yours too intil I updated to the right BIOS.
