Cpu Aux temp.

Dear All,

I have some seriously strange issues regarding my Aux (or cpu Aux) temp in both Speedfan and Aida32 (temp not reported in bios). Aux states 66c .. I have been feeling around the different components on the pcb, nothing is even remotely hot enough to "no" touch. I even added a 3000rpm 40mm fan to my northbridge. What is this about? I mean WTF; if something was 66c I "think" I would be able to feel it, any ideas of "what" it could be?!

I also tried clocking everything to standard clocks (ram/cpu/cpu volt) .. same thing

Also, the bios and the mainboard software monitoring tool (that followed with the board) shows a totally different story on the temp. that e.g. speedfan or Aida32. I mean.. ALL the temps vary; all "two" anyways ;)  what's up with that?!

AIDA32 v3.93
Sensor Properties
Sensor Type Winbond W83627HF
Sensor Access ISA 290h

Temperatures
Motherboard 26 °C (79 °F) (by bios/soltek HWmon: 21c)
CPU 32 °C (90 °F) (by bios/soltek HWmon: 41c)
Aux 67 °C (153 °F)

Cooling Fans
DDr 5273 RPM (ed. Mopeygoth)
Cpu 2557 RPM (ed. Mopeygoth)
Ati backside 5000 RPM (ed. Mopeygoth)
Rear Chassis 2507 RPM (ed. Mopeygoth)
North Bridge 3000 RPM (ed. Mopeygoth)
Front Chassis 2507 RPM (ed. Mopeygoth)
Rear PSU fan 1500 RPM (I think (ed. Mopeygoth)
Front PSU fan 1500 RPM (I think (ed. Mopeygoth)

Voltage Values
CPU Core 1.54 V (set to 1.6v in bios;
it works very irregular/dynamic)
CPU Aux 1.50 V
+3.3 V 3.25 V
+5 V 4.92 V
+12 V 12.04 V
-12 V -13.19 V
-5 V -6.05 V
+5 V Standby 4.92 V
VBAT Battery 3.22 V

The powersupply in on 24A for 12v, really..! Newest bios (1.3L)(there was no different in the temp.issue with the two other bios'es I had aka same problem) and newest chipset drivers.. mysterious illogical logic..

no ideas at all?

I was thinking.. could there be two ways of reading the temperatures on the cpu? e.g. "cpu" and "cpu die" ?

I don't get it.. I even applied the exact amount of Arctic Silver 5 in the exact manner as stated on the website. I might try to change the heatsink-base with the one from my old intelboard.. "desperate problems regiures desperate and often foolish actions"

I still have no idea of why it is showing 66C on the "cpu aux" though... :(

My aux temp is -48c. Thing is if I put an icecube tray in the box, the water just gets warm.

I am not amused as I assume you are riding a cheap joke on me

I checked with SiSoftSandra last night, and it stated the temp. zone as Power Aux instead of cpu aux.. still my powersupply has an ice-cool airflow because of the fansetup

No my p4p800 aalso say -48 . Ihave no Idea what sensor it reports. But if I tell it to read the on die temp it goes to 127 degrees Celsius and the alarm goes off telling me Im overheating.

All software is not perfect.

I aint signing nothing!!!

my appologies then, I must admit to like the icecube-part though ;) . I am glad to hear I am not the only one experiencing irregularities ;) 

-50C.. I would like that.. hehe

Sorry, what I was saying, in an offhand way, is that if the aux temp is not asigned a sensor, it will be driven high or low. It is not measureing anything.

Np man, thanx. Could I "in theory" assign it with additional hardware-bits? Far shot perhaps, but what do I know :) 

You have any views on the "cpu" vs. "cpu die" temps?
I know the "die" is the actual chip itself, you know; when you remove the lid of your processor (in theory!! O_o)
Could plain "cpu" temp. then be measured on the top plate or somewhere else on the chip that is not the die?

It would be a bad idea to put anything between the chip and the hsf. (loss of heat conduction) If you are concerned about the accuracy of the die sensor, it is possible to attach a sensor to the hsf right beside the chip. This should give a fairly true reading.

allright, thanx. I will see if I can find a thermometer-thing for elevtronics somewhere.. :)
