i was just curious if this is how the cpu temp is responding for everyone now who is useing the 1102 bios. so far people have responded with single word answers like "works for me". please be more specific on how it works. describe your situation, otherwise your post is not very usefull to me.

not trying to be rude or anything. i like this forum and the people on it. you guys usually have alot of great info/knnowledge. anyway thanks in advance
Sorry if my limited english language seems rude sometimes. I also just want to enjoy this great information exchange, and help in whatever way possible. Any misunderstanding, please feel free to ask me.


CPU temp rising and falling slowly is not such a serious problem when the maximum temperature is only about 60ºC.

But here, in extreme situations, when the temperature can reach 80 or 90ºC, the CPU Temp takes many seconds or even a minute to achieve the correct level.

In this case, the use of the Q-Fan or Fan Xpert is still dangerous.

Quick response is an essential feature of an automatic PC cooling system, to try prevent a single degree rising.

I've always used Bios or SpeedFan automatic cooling. But SpeedFan also has problems and does not monitor the R3E fans yet (the developer is currently trying to resolve this).


So I'm using a manual switched 5V/OFF/12V control on all fans in this system:

hey now worries. i understand. i did not think you were rude
i see your point tho. if you are hitting 80 degrees you need a quick reaction to get the fans to full speed and cool that cpu down. hopefully asus can fix this problem.

so if i understand correctly, you have the slow reaction with the new 1102 bios as well?

Yes. Very slow.

In an extreme case, testing a good OC with lynx, for example: From idle to full load, for many seconds remains a difference of 20~30ºC between CPU temp and core temps. To achieve a credible level (5~10ºC below the core temps) it takes more than two minutes.

Just had a look at Asus FTP site and bios 1102 are up now. I wonder if this means its going to be a final release now and not a beta.

So guys, who here has 4.2Ghz and would like to share some BIOS settings with me?

I have 4Ghz pretty much stable (testing with linX on 10GB now) but I would like to shoot for 4.2.

By the way, this is on my new TJ07 build, not the sig rig.

EDIT: Just had a flick through this thread and keep seeing problems reporting CPU temps?

I am not sure if I am seeing temp reporting problems. With 1.35v @ 4Ghz (OCing still in progress so I may be able to lower volts) I sit at 65-70 under LinX with 11GB RAM in use.

CPU-Z is also not showing a CPU Voltage?

hey, OT but i was wondering how good the onboard sound is? Would it be worth getting a sound card? I looked through 15 pages and couldn't find anything so sorry if this was already mentioned.

So what is the consensus on getting accurate CPU temp/core readings? Using ASUS PC PROBE to view CPU core? Or what?

Also, I am slightly confused on the Bluetooth with my Droid. I am "paired" but not connected, how do I connect?

Make sure the bluetooth button/light is on and open the app on your device. If it doesn't try to connect immediately, select the options button on the app and go to "Connect". That's what i do on my Droid 2.

For me, CPU Temp is still unreliable, so asus probe, fan xpert and q-fan are useless.

At full load I monitor the temperature using the cores temps in programs like everest, core temp, real temp or fan speed, avoiding temperatures above 75ºC.

Keep in mind that the cores temperatures are usually only used to throttle the cpu in overheating situations. These values are reasonably accurate from 70ºC, and really accurate from 90ºC. Disregard the idle temperature values. To compensate this, with 1102 bios, CPU Temp appears to be accurate in constant idle temperature.
