Hey sorry but i just changed back to a x2 550 again because i looked in the bios and it said that my temps where 48 degrees. i ran a test on prime95 and the computer jammed. 48 seemed a bit high for idle temps so yeh. i duno what to do here.
if i could get this running at quad with stock cooler it would be good but 48 idle seem a wee bit high . could there be a chance that the temps in the bios where wrong?. also i tested everything on the prime95 i selected a bit of everything i think or just the ram and cpu i duno ive mucked it up lol
I'm running a 550 , unlockable like yours...(though currently I'm actually only running two cores,stock speed, undervolted at 1.2 volts, 3.1 ghz, simply because...what I'm doing and playing right now has no need for 4 cores) with the stock fan.
A couple of points, configure speed fan with the configure button...that way you can be more sure that the temps are what they indicate they are...
OK! When I was running my cpu as a X4 B50 I looked in the bios and it said my cpu temp was 48-49 , that had me worrying a bit so I went back to a x2 550 and I just checked my cpu temp then in the bios again and now it says 45-46.
Are these temperatures normal? Idle temps i thaught i should be getting 30 atleast.
is the cpu underload when running the bios or something?. because the temperatures are almost the same as running as a quad.
