Hello Everyone,

When I ran Speed Fan to measure my CPU temp it read 93C. So I swapped the CPU into my dad's mobo and it was stable at 51C for an hour. When I put it back into my computer it would read 51C and every few seconds it would jump to 93C and go back to 51C. I built this a year and a half ago.

Any help would be appreciated.

Do you notice your processor usage go up correspondingly in the task bar? otherwise, it's probably a software bug with Speed Fan.

Nope, Theres no mass CPU usage when it spikes to 93C. I also used to other programs to measure the temp and it does the same thing.

I assume you did the clean, apply new thermal paste and reseat the heatsink in the transfer?

If that is all fine then reboot and go into the bios and

I suggest you also update the bios.

The FX62 is also not listed ... a bit odd as the 6000+ and 6400+ are:

The the mobo book states: Socket AM2+
AMD Athlon 64 / Athlon 64 FX / Athlon 64 X2
/ Sempron / Phenom processors

I have tried updating the latest bios and still get the same problem. I also remounted the heatsink and fan. I will go ahead and try the e-hotline when I get home. Thanks!
