5c temp?? Tags: CPUs Core Temp Last response: September 27, 2008 7:32 AM in CPUs Share pmoreland September 19, 2008 7:18:34 PM Hi folks, I installed a new 5400 x2 BE and am getting some unusual temps. Every tool I use (core temp, everest, etc) has temps reading between 5 and 10 degrees c. Obviously this cant be right. Any ideas?

Nik_I September 19, 2008 11:57:59 PM the temperature sensor is most likely broken. but still check in your bios to see what the readings are. if they still don't make sense, then RMA the chip; it's obviously not working correctly.
