Phenom 9600 temp issues.

Ok, my cpu temp on everest reads as 70C sometimes like 68-73 in that area. My cores read 42-44C. This is idle as well. Im not sure if these temps are right or not. Ive made sure the cpu is seated well and everything. My previous cpu, 4200+ ran at 40C so i dont think 70 is right.

If that is the old free version of Everest, i would not expect it to read Phenom accurately. Try latest Speedfan. If cores at 40C, no way CPU at 70C.

""HWMonitor is a hardware monitoring program that reads PC systems main health sensors : voltages, temperatures, fans speed""

Works great with my Phenom 9600BE & MSI 790FX. 2.7GHz at load = 42-44c in an Enlight case with side vent and bunches of fans (stock cooler & AS5)

What PSU? Your 12V is a bit low! :ouch:  Use a meter to check volts, some motherboard sensors are a bit inaccurate. Is that the correct Vcc? Does POST identify the CPU correctly? If not, check for a BIOS upgrade.
