Hi all,
In cpuid hwmonitor, what do these temps represent?
Do any of these look out of the ordinary?

Temperature 0 30°C (85°F) [0x1E] (TMPIN0)
Temperature 1 43°C (109°F) [0x2B] (TMPIN1)
Temperature 2 79°C (174°F) [0x4F] (TMPIN2)

thank you very much in advance
Jeff

if its not fluctuating then it may be a faulty sensor, they arent reading high enough for it to be one that doesnt exist so the sensor definitely exists, hopefully its just giving false data from bad calibration because thermocouples used in temp sensors dont tell the actual temp, they tell the deviation from their baseline calibration, so if it was calibrated too low then its readings would be too high by a fixed amount, but i would still look into fixing that northbridge heatsink.
Temp 0 is likely a temperature sensor towards the forward edge of the board and gives you a good idea of the case ambient temp. What motherboard do you have and what are the temps on your CPU? One of the other two temps represents the temperature on the back side of the board from the CPU, it should be fairly close to the temp of the CPU. The other one may represent your northbridge's temperature, either way something needs its heatsink reset.

The temp sensor locations vary by board but you generally only have socket, ambient, north bridge, or south bridge to choose from for temp locations so a bit of deduction will get you the info you need. If you post your motherboard model, your manual may tell you what each temperature sensor goes with.

Thanx for the reply, i really appreciate it.
Its a gigabyte ga-ma770T-UD3P motherboard.
X2 550 BE not overclocked at the moment, no extra cores unlocked.
I'll look through the mobo manual.
The highest temp should likely be my north bridge, no?

cores temps are staying right around 37 to 39c.

Thanx for that info, someguy.
Does this sometimes happen with a new build?
I dint find anything in the manual for the temperate sensors.
Ill check gigabytes website for more info.
I imagine the arctic silver would work on this, correct?
Is there anything I should do until I get some thermal past?
Ive renabled cool and quiet in my bios, if that will help.
Jeff
 
cool n quiet might help a little bit, and yes arctic silver will work fine on a chipset heatsink, but first i would check with your hand and make sure it wasnt loose or anything because a lack of pressure can cause air gaps which cause poor heat transfer as well.

Could this be a faulty sensor?
I had the computer off for about 2 hours.
As soon as I started it back up the 77c was there.
Ran prime 2fft for 20 minutes.
The TMPIN2 in hwmonitor didnt fluctuate!!

Thanx Hunter.
Ill fix the heat sink issue on monday, the local computer store just closed today.
Will it be safe to use the computer till then?
Im on my backup right now. my old dell p4.
Dang what a difference.

Okay,
With both arctic silver 5 and arctic silver ceramique in hand, I am ready to attempt the removal, cleaning, reapplicatin of thermal compound, and reinstallation of my north bridge heatsink on my GA-MA770T-UD3P motherboard.
Is there anyone that has had to do this or is familier with the process?
The heatsink is loose on the northbridge and I wish to make it right.
Thanx to anyone in advance.
Jeff
