Hey guys, I've been looking into overclocking my rig for the first time, and just downloaded CPUID Hardware Monitor, before overclocking anything my TMPIN 1 temperature is reading at 123*C.
The rest are reading rather normal TMPIN 0 at 20* and TMPIN 2 at 28*. Could this possibly be Hardware monitor giving me a faulty reading? Or should I be concerned?
Is TMPIN1 even connected to anything? That tmp sensor isn't referencing the same component on every board. Sometimes that's the CPU... sometimes the VR MOSFETs. Sometimes if it doesn't even exist, it will present wild results.
Check the temp readings in BIOS when you boot. They will be at idle, of course, but that should give you a comparison. Also, you could try Core Temp. I have found it fairly accurate for AMD processors. But keep in mind, all cores will read the same because AMD processors don't have individual core sensors. http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/
