My system is as follows
Amd x4 phenom 965
gigabyte 870a motherboard
radeon 5850 card
my question is, why has my tj max gone down, when i look at it in the program Coretemp, or a similar program? it was 80, then 79, now it is at 70. I installed an update to amd overdrive recently, could this be causing this?
Upon boot up press the delete button repeatedly until you bios opens up and usually its at the bottom of the screen, you can also download cpuz on the cpuid website and it will tell you I think, also in pc wizard on that same site.
yeah i thinks it not a problem anyhow... my bios version is weird, it just says... award software f2. thanks for the help, I think the "tj max" is just a software setting that has to do with when the bios handles high temperature i.e. when the temp gets to high, it underclocks automatically, or alarms you, or both. its been at 79 for quite some time now... all is well
