GA-MA69GM-S2H & AX2 4000+ very low temperatures

I just built a new computer for my girlfriend over the weekend. Everything's working fine, except the temperatures for the CPU (read with SpeedFan, Everest Ultimate). The temperatures I'm getting are like:

CPU 16°C
Core 0 7°C
Core 1 12°C

Setup:
Gigabyte GA-MA69GM-S2H MB
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4000+ (2.1ghz, 65nm, 65W, Brisbane) w/ stock HSF
FSP 400W PSU
WD 1600AAKS HDD
Integrated X1250 GPU

Anyone know what's going on here? I would like it to read actual temperatures, not these obviously erronious values. BIOS update, perhaps? Drivers?

  1. What's the cpu temp in bios?

    If you're in Windows then one core maybe doing some work so it's a little warmer. Those temps are excellent, though.
  3. lol Baron, I like AMD too, but I doubt even on it's best day an AMD proc would cool below room temp on stock cooling >;o)

    Kyle,

    SpeedFan and Everest are probably reading the wrong value off the MB. Gigabyte sometimes uses a screwy system so their proprietary software can read the temps correctly, but others cannot. I'd say download and install Gigabyte's overclocking tool (I can't remember the name off the top of my head), but it's a piece of crap.


    You may be able to find configuration files for Speedfan that will read the correct value off the MB (go to info -> get config, go to the website and find the config file for your MB, then enter the ticket # and it will dl).
  4. They're also [well] below ambient, so not accurate.

    @ 2.33ghz under 100% load Orthos 43 min (read from Everest Ult):
    46°C MB
    40°C CPU
    24°C Core #1
    29°C Core #2
    33°C Aux

    In BIOS (obviously not under load):
    33°C System Temp
    30°C CPU Temp
  5. Downloaded EasyTune and it was reading the same temps (with the absence of individual core temps). I think I might update the BIOS to see if that changes anything.
  6. FYI, Brisbane is said to have faulty temp sensors even though AMD denies it. It's all over other forums.

    I think the bios temps are more accurate.

    Is your speedfan latest version?
