DFI Expert CPU temp sensor reporting incorrectly?

Recommended Posts

On my Ultra-D and X2 3800, idle at 38c, load at 48c

 

On Expert and X2 3800, idle at 21c, load at 32c.

 

there really is something weird about the temp sensor....

yes, i think so. just ported over to the Expert all the stuff that was previously on my Ultra-D and when i ran Smart Guardian, temps were astonishingly low.

 

will try get a screenshot later.

Temps are deffenitly off on the expert, I attached a probe to the heat sink, right now IT reports 24C and the probe reports 31.5C, so yes it's not only opterons.

Well you guys still have high temps :)

 

My venice 3500+ is reporting 13 degrees, but i think its somewhere near 27 idle.

 

If someone can give me some upload space i will get the picture here.

 

 

MBM5 and bios are giving me same readings.

I upgraded from a Prescott, so the temps did not seem that low to me, but now that I have read through this thread mine are probably too low also. I idle at 32C and load at 34-35C. I find it hard to believe that my watercooling setup keeps the CPU within 3C. However, if I open up the case and touch the waterblock when a game is running, it is not all that hot. Maybe the voltage deivery is just that good (although I doubt it). My 3.2 prescott @ 3.9ghz ran at 33C idle on a Gigabyte board. The temps just do not seem that off. I find the temps of my Mosfet and the dang chipset are too high. The mosfet gets to 51C and the chipset hovers around 49-50C, regardless if I have a fan blowing cool air on it or not. I think maybe all the temps are screwed up on this mobo.

touching a waterblock hehehe good one...that won't tell you anything

 

you can used the formula to check what your thermal resistance is...........that would start making sense for you

 

also you can stick in a temp probe and check the temps

 

I can guarantee you 100% that your load temps are too low IF you ambient temp is a reasonable room temp of 20C or so...............unless you're sticking your rad in winter chill

I agree my temps are probably not right. I have my rad setup in such a way that is pulls in fresh air in exhausts it right out of the case.

It is just strange that nothing really gets all that hot, even during gaming. The prescott used to put this Opteron to shame in the temp department.
