I updated my Asus A7M266 mobo bios from v1003 to v1005 a few days ago to add support for my AthlonXP coming next week.
The wierd thing is that my average cpu temperatures have lept up 8 deg !!!!
My current Athlon 1.2c use to operate within the range of 42-48 using the old bios. Now it operates in the range of 50-56. wtf!?!?!?
I'm using an Asus iPanel to detect these temperatures.
What I want to know is, is this a real temp increase? Or is it just a change to the way the bios reads the cpu temp?
