Hi, I just did a build for my dad. I used the Asus M4A77TD motherboard, AMD Phenom II X3 710 (unlocked 4th core). My problem is that when I download CORETEMP it says at the bottom of the screen where the temp usually is coretemp?, has no temperatures. Is this because I unlocked the 4th core and the cpu may no be recognized? This is what I am thinking but the computer is now at his house so I can't test my theory. Any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks.
I'm guessing that unlocking is your problem. When I accidently left the core unlocker switch on on my motherboard, coretemp would not read from my 955BE. I never tried other tools; just flipped the switch
Yeah, and the thing is that my dad has a mid tower with the stock heatsink. I added a 120mm fan on the side of the case to try and keep it cool. But it feels ok, I will also try HWMONITOR and Everest as well though.
