Hey people,

I am running:
AMD XP Athlon 2500+
Asus A7N8X-D
Windows XP (Latest SP updated)
Radeon 7000 (I know, will get a newer one soon!)
512mb PC3700 RAM

I get no conflicts, but am finding it hard to figure out what temperature my system is running at...

Am using MBM (ver.5), and the three decent temp readings (e.g. not open circuit 126degs) are:
Sensor 1 - Asus 1 - 35 to 38 degress centigrade
Sensor 2 - Asus 2 (CUSL2) - 40 degrees centigrade (constant)
Sensor 3 - W83L785TS-S - 46-48 degrees centigrade

I have tried slowing my heatsink fan down real slow and running resource draining programs to look for temp changes, but the temps stay within the ranges (above).
Am confused!

Matt.

I’d haft to say one of the first two are defiantly your processor. The 3rd looks like your hard drive. Best guess is that the first is your processor since it isn’t constant. Hope it helps. Is this a screen you can access before windows startup or a program in windows (ex. hitting f2, etc). If not before startup your bios should have a diagnostic and you can mess with the fan and you should see the CPU RPM speed goes down. Then you’ll know for sure.

Hmm...it's tough to tell...I would think the first one, because CPU temps do fluctuate, but I can't really tell....either way, either one of those temps are fine, and you wouldn't have to worry about overheating with any of them.

Hello:

If it is the same MBM that I had then what you have to do is make sure you have the correct sensor selected. I found it to be a hit and miss operation if you don't know what sensors are on your board.

What I did was enter the BIOS and record the CPU and board temperatures, then boot windows and run MBM. I then selected the sensors that gave me temperatures that matched my BIOS readouts. Try that before fiddling with fan speeds.

Hey,

Right, i checked my temp of the CPU in the BIOS, and it said 42 deg cent...
Now i'm in windows MBM says:
Sensor1: 35
Sensor2: 40
Sensor3: 47

Guess its Sensor3 then... Damn thats 10 degrees higher than i thought it was... *Sigh*

Here's another good app: a replacement for Aida32. Notice my temps? :eek:
