Hi all. I got some temperatures issue that NO ONE can solve and im trying to upgrade my BIOS to see if something change. My cpu is an AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ (Brisbane). The BIOS is Phoenix Technologies, LTD
Version: PBAMARMB.0400 Date: 05/15/2007.
I cannot update it because in the official site i should download and PAY for a program in order to upgrade it.
There's a LEGAL way to upgrade it?
Nothing. It looks like that support for this model has ended... Even the Packard Bell Updater, that should be a program that keeps you system up to date, says that there are not updates for my system... :S
been looking aroun on the net and all the owner of this have the same bios as your so there is no update ,read that you have temp issue on what and what is your os use these to report temp http://www.hwinfo.com/ what kind of air flow you got in the computer case
I got problems with my CPU. It idles at 50c or so and under "light load" (i mean just a lil, old game) it reaches 73c°. I dont dare to run StarCraft 2 with Skype like i used to, because it might explode! :S
I dont think its airflow because i made some tests with opened case near a window and with the uncovered part upsiding... And the temp was still there.. Maybe a drop of 1c°.
I'll use the program in the next hours.. Im using Vista at 32bit.
i suggest you to dust the system and get new themal paste clean the old one and aplly new one between the cpu and the cooler use somethhing like the mx-4 or a arctic silver that will help reduce you temp, how many fans that are pushing air and take it out of the case
There are the fans of my new PSU: One aspires air from the case e send it to the second that flows out of it. I've already cleaned up the hardware, already reapplied thermal paste and brought a new heatsink. Nothing.
