AMD Phenom II x6 temps
Posted 18 August 2010 - 05:18 PM
I just replaced my AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition with an AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition. Aside from having to go into the BIOS to confirm the processor change on my ASUS Crosshair III motherboard and the fact that I had to reactivate my OS over the phone everything went very well. However, there seems to be an issue with my temperatures.
Here is what I'm getting for temps with the stock heat sink and fan:
Core 1: 82°
Core 2: 82°
Core 3: 82°
Core 4: 82°
Core 5: 82°
Core 6: 82°
My quad core was always up around 103° to 109° on a good day and around 118° to 123° on a hot day (85° or warmer) for the CPU with the individual cores always around the same temps give a or take a few degrees.
Does anyone have any insight in to this rather peculiar situation?
I'm using Everest to monitor my unit and though I don't think these temps are correct readings, it would be literally cool if they are correct.

haha. yeah, a bios/sensor issue i bet. like nuel.dll said, a bios update should set you straight, unless the sensors and bios are not able to handle the x6 correctly in this regard. it happens.

How can CPU temp (Tcase) be higher than Cores temps (TJunction)?
