Unusually high CPU temps while in EFI BIOS

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi all

New to Overclock.net, but not a n00b.

A few of us P67 board owners are starting to notice a little issue with CPU temps rising to high-ish levels while in the EFI...basically idle and before applying any OC settings.
I have an Asus P67 Sabertooth with stock cooling till my new cooler comes (tomorrow I hope wink.gif ), and I've watched as the CPU temp started @ 54C and rose steadily to over 72C! Fans showed good RPM's too.

My normal idle temps are 33C in Win so starting at 54C in EFI is rather startling, but the steady increase to over 70 is alarming. A member over at Guru3D is also reporting high temps in his MSI P67 board, and others are checking, so it may not be Asus EFI specific.

What we're trying to do is find out if other P67 board owners may see the same thing while in the new EFI's and if it could be related to the new interface(s) somehow.
Can I ask some members here to please report any weird CPU temps while in their EFI BIOS also.

Thanx
Dave

Bios puts ~ 60% load on a CPU, EFI even more I'm sure... So dont be surprised to see "load" temps when in bios smile.gif

If they go over spec, Then worry. .. How are temps in Windows?

Hi Capwn, & Thanx!

Yah, we're used to seeing some temp diffs, 10-15C, but it is weird to see them climbing so high...into the 70's.
In Win, stock cooler ATM, idle is 33C so I'm seeing a 30C+ increase in temps in EFI. 50% load I still stay @ 43C or so in Win.

Wasn't aware the BIOS load was as high as possibly 60%, that certainly can make a diff all right. I never really monitored temps while in BIOS before, so it seemed very odd to see such temps, and other OC'rs I know are also quite surprised once they've actually "Looked"...LOL!

It's not dangerous temps but if many or most P67 owners start seeing abnormal type temps in the EFI, then maybe it has a bug? Could need looking into, so I'm trying to find others who see temps that high.

Just got my core I7 2600k + asus P8 P67 motherboard yesterday. Initially I was shocked - in efi bios temperature starts at 60C, and climbs to 70C in a few minutes. However, in the OS I can see that the temperature for all cores is about 35C. I assume this happens because efi bios is very fancy, maybe it loads CPU very hardly... I use native heatsink, which doesn't look good at all, but even this should be enough to keep the temperature acceptable when idle.
