DFI Expert CPU temp sensor reporting incorrectly?

Recommended Posts

A new bios (4/6/06) is out for the Expert

 

I just clicked on the link and the bios date is May 6, 2006

 

Revision A

Date Code 2006/04/06

File NF4ED406.ZIP

Size 424,992 bytes

 

just making sure people dont think this bios is June 4, 2006 - after checking the dates on the other files on that page, it appears DFI has adopted the convention of yyyy/mm/dd

Good job DFI. Great BIOS.

 

Also, if Opterons aren't supported by the NF4 then why did they have an update in this BIOS regarding Opterons? Hmmm... please explain.

Great, JUST GREAT!

 

Now AMD will see this post and pull all official support from DFI. Thanks a lot!

 

LOL

 

Just because AMD won't allow "official" support for a server processor on a desktop motherboard, doesn't mean DFI can't help their customers out a bit.

Thanks dinos22.

TheCoolest's program is working fine in Vista x64.

Almost identical to MBM5 on this Venus.

Will try different voltage/ temp/ OSes later.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention :)

Temps match EVEREST for a 3700 San Diego on a LPnF4 and a 4600 Windsor AM2 on a non-DFI motherboard.

 

I'll check some rigs at work on Friday.

non-DFI board :P heheheh

 

it's also good to know the difference between two cores.....and if one crapping out in priming is due to temps or something else.......

 

DFI bios upgrade possible to read this sensor....? Just a thought

looks like there's a breakthrough in actual CPU core temp readings from CPU's sensor rather than mobo one.........................here is a thread over at XS with all the info.........sorry if posted already

how accurate is this program, because I am showing a huge variation between this one and mbm5.

do you think temps of 60c-62c is too hot if this is correct temp reading for cpu cores?

well you can calculate where you should be at.............just search the forumulae i used at the beginning of this thread............but i can tell you right now that i was estimating up to 20C difference.......I would say you are loading at those temps....~60C which is pretty high and you should back down in vcore and MHz for 24/7

Guest Timmay

Yeah a big thanks for posting that thread over at OCAU Dinos:)

 

Finaly I can tell what my CPU is really at.
