High Temp issues out of the blue - Page 2

post #11 of 17
That is plenty cool, most people recommend to keep these Phenoms under 55C load, but AMD specs them to run at up to 63C safely, so you have quite a bit of room really.

But of course, that doesn't answer the question of what's going on with the sensors during idle. Meh... oh well. I guess the main thing is that everything is still ok!
I guess so, I'm hoping its just the fact that its very warm in the room that the idle temps are high, but at least under load things are looking okay which gives me some relief. I appreciate the help and i'll come back to this if I find out what the issue is/was or if the room temp is the problem.

I didn't realize they were rated that high, good to know.

Hmm, It actually says the PH 945 (95w version) max temp is 71C
Max temp on mine is listed as 62C (i was off 1 from memory) but that is a 125w chip

140w 965 is also rated at 62C max
125w 955 rated at 62C

The only thing that I would expect to cause this is a BIOS update. I mean I have always assumed that if the idle temperature were to increase by that much, then the load temps should be that much higher as well.

That does make sense logic wise but I haven't updated my BIOS recently.
