AMD Athlon II X2 250 Regor High Idle Temp Issue... - Page 3

post #21 of 38
Is this a mb one you have used before ?

You have an OS yet ?

What does it do when stressed ?

Don't bother with overdrive..is Cool'n'Quiet working ? (Dropping multiplier and voltage at idle)

No OS yet, this is straight from the bios. I wanted to figure out the issue before I proceeded. However, if it is beneficial to install the OS to figure more out, then I will go ahead with that.

Cool N' Quiet is on in the bios but on or off it does not seem to do much in there. Would it show it's benefit in the bios?

Thanks a lot for your help here ku4jb!

Ok with a room temp of 71f I am idling at 25c. If memory serves me these chips have inaccurate temp sensors. Run occt and see if it has an stability issues if not move on.

That is odd for idle. I have a Athlon II 240 oc to 3.15ghz with a mugen 2 and the load temp is 25c.

I would go ahead and install so you can see how it behaves when stressed.

As Mr. Stroker suggested, could be a bum idle reading and loads temps might be ok. Max cpu temp for C2 and C3 versions is 74C.

C'n'Q is on the OS side, W7 should have the driver for you.

Alright. I will give that a try. XP is the OS though.

For reference the lowest I can set the voltage is 1.386... Should I be going with this or just leave it as the auto of 1.430?

I've honestly never messed with voltages on these CPU's and never had the temp so high.

Also, why would the bios say "Not recommended" for voltage for voltage of 1.386 for this CPU if the stock voltage is even lower than this?

Most Athlon II and Phenom II stock voltage is 1.35v.

I was running a 240 before my phenom and in the bios it would read high for some reason too, but once it booted into windows it would come down to low to mid 20's.

Install the OS, get Hardware monitor or similar and check temps again, make sure to let the CPU load go down to 0 with CnQ enabled.

Here is a screen shot of my work in progress with a Athlon II x2 C2 at 3.8ghz and temps with a Mugen 2.
