Motherboard - CPU temperature difference? - Page 2

post #11 of 22
I'm guessing you are reading the wrong temperature sensor. What program are you using to watch your temperatures, download speedfan and take a screenshot of your temperatures.
Also go into the bios and report the temperatures it shows.

Lens tissues are great for this, you get them at the drugstore or at an eyeglass place.

BIOS, PC Probe II from Asus, and AI Booster all report the same temps. I'll look for speedfan.

Speedfan temps are consistant with all of the above.

Can you lower the voltage without losing speed? That would help a little with the bringing the temperature down.

I've tried to lower it, but hasn't seemed to have much affect. I have noticed CPUz reports 1.35, but BIOS reports 1.39? (not sure if Cpuz reports a measured vcore). My last motherboard reported 1.35 though. Another thing I noticed is using auto settings have my BUS speed at 800MHz instead of the correct 1000MHz, and nTune doesn't recognize my chipset.

Speedfan says my disks are at 28C, and my video card reports 46-47C which isn't bad, but it is up 3-4C over my last box. Idle temps are fairly steady at 45C cpu and 43C mobo.

It seems like at startup, the CPU leads the mobo by about 6 degrees or so. But then the mobo catches up and may even pass the CPU. I have the chipset cooler fan that came with the board, but the manuf. says not to use it when using a CPU fan.

I was hoping that maybe the board was simply reporting incorrectly, but when I was running 3DMark05 I could hear it start hissing, so I immediately got out and realized it was at 47C and then shutdown to let it cool off. So I'm thinking it's a real heat issue.

I have a 120mm exhaust fan and 80mm case fan in the front running at full speed all the time. They don't seem to blow air that is all that warm. Only the PSU fan seems to exhaust any "warm" air, and unfortunately I can't increase the speed of it's fan.

Just talked to Asus Tech Support. He said his A8N32 runs at 45/42 CPU/Mobo. He said that it's normal for this board, and not to worry about it. Somehow I would still feel more comfortable with cooler temps. Doesn't give me alot of headroom for OC :-/

I guess the next step is aftermarket cooler, and see if I can mount some case fans?

Would an intake fan at the front of the case in the 5.25 drives slots help at all?

that's funny, cause your bios should never be the same as your idle in desktop.
