I have a 3400 754 newcastle with a standard hs and fan. I was going to do a little overclocking, but when I ran Lavasys "Everest" for some baselines it told me that
Tsystem = 38 C Tcpu = 72 C !!
Tgpu = 50 C
I then ran SisSoft and it said
Board Temp = 25 C
CPU Temp = 39 C Power/Aux Temp = 72 C !!
I haven't seen any problems or changes with the performance. All fans seem to be working fine. This is still concerns me. Any help would be appreciated.
I would assume that everest has a bit of trouble reading the sensor on your motherboard. It reads mine about 5-8C higher than it actually is. For completely accurate temps, i would check out what the bios has to say. Whatever the idle is in the BIOS, i think it would be about 20C more MAX at full load.
Well my temps at idle are about 40C and at load about 52C, so i was just saying 20C as a round about number. I get 12C flux with a 10% overclock so if you arent overclocked, then it shouldnt flux as much. As for the poweraux temp...i highly doubt that its that high, its probably a sensor misread, does the BIOS show any temps up to 70C? If not, then i wouldnt worry too much about it. Also, since you got a gigabyte board, didnt you get Easytune? Since this windows OC app was built for your mobo, it might read the temps better than another program....take a look at it and see what it has to say also.
