I have a Dell 1600sc 533fsb model. Recently upgraded from one 2.8 Xeon to 2 3.06's
Seems to be running fine and I have no reason to believe it is running too hot, but would like to check since it is getting old.
Anyway I have tried to install PCWizard 2010 from the CPU-z folks and SpeedFan and both hang the server, causing me to have to do a hard reset.
Both tell me to run debugging but since I really dont like to just push the power button I was wondering if anyone knows of a setting I could change before I reinstall and rerun either one.
I did use one of my mechanics laser thermometers shot at the heatsinks and the orig CPU was running at around 93f and these seem to be sitting 7 or 8 degrees hotter. Which doesnt seem to bad to me considering the faster speed and double the cache.

Just a follow up, I have been talking to Laurent at CPU-z, and he sent me a beta version of PCWizard. It loaded correctly but still had no sensor info. I ran a cpu report from PCWizard and found this info
>> Thermal Information
Thermal control TM1 : Yes - Disabled
Thermal control TM2 : No
Thermal Control Circuit : No
Digital Thermal Sensor : No
Clock Modulation (ODCM) Enabled : No
Is this something that could be disabled in the Bios?
