high stock core temps and really high speedfan temp

I took the heatsink off three times throughout that whole "blowing up" thing, so I imagine it's a little thin on the thermal compound, but these are high right?

idle - 41
TAT 100% - 65

and when I open up speedfan, it has an "Aux" reading of 125, what is that measuring?!?!

Thanks

    huh? do you mean video card? It's an X1900GT with an artic cool accelero x2
  3. are we talking cpu or gpu which is it? if it is cpu which one?
  4. It's hard to help with no info, the more the better. :wink:

    You didn't reapply the thermal compound?!
  6. sorry,
    e6600 stock hsf
    P5b deluxe
    x1900gt with cooler

    speedfan opens with these temps, I haven't changed anything

    system: 35C
    cpu: 41C
    aux: 125C
    HD0: 39C
    HD1: 38C

    just trying to figure out what the "aux" temp is. under configure, it has all the same properties as system and cpu

    let me know if you need more
  7. oh, and the cpu and system temps match the cpu and mb temps in the bios
  8. I do not have a e6600, so i can not say for sure. Those(cpu) temps seems rather cool for what i have read though. The "blowing up" sound needs a closer look, check everything over for damage.
  9. don't know what aux is measuring, but you can boil water on it. not to make light of the situation but I am reasonably sure that it sounds like a faulty sensor. can you disable this function in bios? :?:
  10. Speedfan was giving me a negative number for Aux, like -265 or something. I just turned off monitoring for it in Speedfan.

    Yeah, I did that over here

    good to know others are getting odd readings out of "aux"

    the bios only shows me the mb temp and the cpu temp, I can disable the monitor in speedfan

    it has never changed from 124.5C
  13. Sorry i could not help, good luck.
  14. I am not familar with speedfan but if your temps are 35 mb and 41 cpu and you can run prime 95 without problems you should be o.k. disable the monitor in speedfan and continue. you might want to try Motherboard monitor5 or whatever version http://www.majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=311 this one has worked for me for years
  15. Actually, I take that back. I was mistaken. My System temperature shows -65C in Speedfan. Aux is currently showing 31. Sounds like a similar issue with the sensor though.

    SpeedFan's Aux temp has displayed erroneous values through several releases, which has been a concern to many for some time now. I emailed a few months ago for info regarding this issue, but never received a response, however, Aux appears to provide for future expansion of motherboard sensor inputs, such as RAM, PSU, or case temps. Since Aux is not connected (NC), it randomly toggles through possible display values. As this does not present a problem, I did as most do, which was to disable Aux, and disregard it.

    As for the clarification of C2D temps, check out the following topic:
