While changing a few settings in AMD overdrive the temp on core 1, 2, and 3 jumped up to 256c!! Core 0 stayed at 48c and I didn't apply any setting within AMD OverDrive. Could this be a false reading by CPUID? My system did not crash or become unstable in any way. Just scared me to death. I would think if it got that hot, even for a second it would have crashed or am I wrong?

Just as an update, I closed and opened AMD OverDrive and whenever this happens the temp on random cores will spike to that 256c. I'm thinking this is a false indication.

I'm thinking so too since 256c is 492f LOL

Yeah, just scared me to death LOL. I figured something bad would have happened at that moment.

It must be bugg or something , it's impossible to get that temperature :)

Nothing is impossible with the right tools and skills, 920 c0 with modded silicon anyone?

Probably its interpretation of no signal from the temperature sensor. It definitely wasnt a real reading and most likely a software glitch due to the combination of AMD overdrive and HW Monitor.

Not in "Celsius" maybe if it was 256 F as it is only a few C's above 100c but not at 256c.



CPU would of either done 1 of 2 things before it reach temps of 256c

Either A: it would shut off with a dramatic rise in temps

B: would of fired well before 200c, yet alone 256c.

Unless you're running on some new other than silicon (say carbon), it is impossible to get those temps on any cpu im aware of.
