CPu 206 Celsius under load which makes it think its over heating and cause throttle.

Apparently my cpu when it goes under load, or mediocre load it thinks its overheating and causes it to throttle, hardware monitor shows 206, but in idle while in bios it shows 36-41, shows this result in hardware monitor on idle too. This is really annoying since while playing games it throttles and causes my GPU to bottleneck, which lowers my frames by a substantial amount. Please help. This happened recently after i checked for bad clusters in my hard drive, a day ago.

More about cpu 206 celsius load makes heating throttle
  1. What CPU cooler are you using?
  2. is that for real? or software bug? if it was me, i will remove the hsf and reinstall it

    It would be a software bug. His CPU would have fried by now if those temps were real :P
  4. Im using the stock cooler, seems to be working properly no dust, how can i make it stop thinking its overheating?

    Your CPU is definitely not running at 206°C, it would probably have shut itself down at half of that. From what it sounds like, your BIOS is correct and whatever software you're using is wrong/glitching. Try checking with different software.

    Also, make sure you're checking both at idle and under load. Check load temperature with something like Prime95.
  6. AMD, you suck at making your CPU temps easy to read :(

    OP, read this: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/faq/id-2122665/understanding-temperature-amd-cpus-apus.html
  7. Oxiide, even if the software is wrong, why does my cpu throttle when it gets to max load? or even at 20-30%, i dont get it. Prime95 causes it to lower clocks and go to 207 celsius.

    Are you certain you have clipped the stock cooler down fully and correctly? The cooler may have bad contact with the CPU.
  9. Leemon ,the 200+ temps are wrong, it just thinks its like that, which makes it cause a throttle, i don tknow what to do, i disabled all of the bios power saving programs but still voltage dips from 1,3 to 0,8
  10. I'm aware the 200+ temps are wrong, it was me that suggested that in the first place. The reason I'm asking if you installed the cooler correctly is because the CPU could still be overheating which is causing the throttling. It may not be 200C+ but it could still be high.
  11. Im pretty sure it is, checked it now, the thermal paste must not be sufficient or wrong, dont have a thermal paste anywhere near me.. might as well wait till one arrives :/
  12. When you take the cooler off to put new paste on check to see if the current paste has spread across the CPU. If it hasn't then the cooler hasn't been clamped down correctly. Also, carefully take the CPU out and check for any bent pins. Bent pins can cause issues such as what you're having.
  13. Could thermal compound cause this? the overheating? because im sure i sometimes took out the fun and repositioned it without changing it. I hope thats the problem
  14. remember that when using thermal compound, applying too much is not good. it is supposed to fill the gaps,
  15. i applied new thermal paste, my cpu is 27 celsius idle, maybe 50 under load but then goes to 206-255 when it goes 50-100% load and resets multiplier to x7. :/

    So it's still throttling? Did you check for bent pins like I asked?
  17. Yes i checked, everything's perfect

    I've only just realised what motherboard you have. That motherboard only supports CPUs with 95W TDP. The 8350 has 125W TDP. This means that your motherboard is overheating which is causing the throttling, not your CPU. The only way to fix your issue is to buy a better motherboard I'm afraid.

    Yeah, i noticed in hardware monitor my motherboard had 3 temps 1: 40 C, 2: 75-81 C, 3: 40C Cheers!!
