hobbes987 Posted April 24, 2009 Posted April 24, 2009 Hello, all, I'm new here I just upgraded to an AMD 6000+, and I've been trying to overclock it to ~3.2 (stock is 3.0). I used the following settings: C&Q: Off PCI-E:100 MHz CPU: 1.500 V DDR2: 800 MHz Timings: 4-4-4-12-2T Memory: 2.2V CPU Multiplier: 15X Clock speed: 200 (base) - 215 (goal) System specs: Abit KN9 SLI mobo AMD Athlon X2 6000+ 2 gigs OCZ Gold DDR2-800 PC6400 Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro CPU fan I set the clock speed at 215, for an overall speed of 3.225 GHz. System booted up smoothly, and CPU-Z reported the correct speeds and voltages, and corresponded to the values shown in the Abit motherboard utility. However, a few minutes after booting, the motherboard alarm goes off, and the Abit motherboard utility is reporting a CPU temperature of about 127 C (!!). Terrified I had burnt out my new CPU, I rebooted, and lowered the clock speed to 213, and booted up again. This time, I fired up Everest, and when it happened again, the CPU temperatures reported on Everest remained at ~30C, while those on the ABIT utility were 100+ again. I rebooted again and reduced the clock to 210, where it is sitting nicely now. It should also be noted that I checked the CPU temps in the BIOS after rebooting, and they were confirmed at ~30C, so I'm convinced this is a sensor error. But why is it only on one of 3 programs I'm using to monitor the temperature that this appears? And why only when the clock is above a certain level? This current congfiguration passed a 2 minuted ORTHOS test at less than 50C, so I'm sure I can push it further. Any input would be appreciated.
