is anyone running their dual core in the new DFI Expert board........mine is showing seriously low temps.......i'm starting to think there may be an issue with the CPU temp sensor....anyone else experiencing low reported CPU temps?!?

 

Priming at stock 25C load temps .......idle 20C........don't forget i live in sydney......hence not exactly cold this time of year if you know what i mean

here it is priming at 2.6GHz 1.42V.....32C load ......can't be that low can it

Dinos

 

are you fully using both cores I see that you have the NO AFFINITY button still checkmarked.................................

 

I also think that the expert "overvolts" less than the regular NF4 boards

 

my 175 shows .1V less than true at load

both cores 100%.....check the first screenshot

 

i've also used stresscpu and 32M SPI and set affinity manually in Task Manager for each core....same temps

That may be the problem since I am using Enermax 600W....

I can get it back into bios but hving problem with my prev version of windows with stock settings. (RAM tested ok in memtest.)

While I was trying to install a new version, the PC will reboot. I will try again with a diff PSU.

 

 

This Cold Boot Bug is typical for the 600w Enermax

I have had this board for a few days, and also the ballistix 2G kit thats been giving everyone problems. I was NOT stable out of the box.

 

Updated to 704-2bt and am running stable on my 4400x2 at 255 on 3-3-3-8 timings.

 

My temps were pretty "low" too but I am comming from a Prescott so...

 

36-43load now.

 

Around 26-30 before OC.

no go on 4x1024 Ballistix on the board with Opteron 146

 

it failed Prime95 after 9h 0m @ 1T

 

re-running Prime95 @ 2T to see if that makes a difference
