A64 Temp

I have a A64 2800+ on a Chaintech Nforce3-250 board. I know this is a common thing but Motherboard Monitor is reading my case temp at 31C and my processor at -127C. Now i am not using Liquid N. cooling so this seems a bit low...lol...i know its a glitch but how do i rid myself of it? i heard that a BIOS update that is comming out soon will fix it, or is that out already? also what are normal temps for a system to run at?
Thanx

  2. Is that what it's reading im bios? If it is then you can try to run a program such as Everest and see what temps it reads. If you are using the stock hsf and aren't o/cing then don't worry about the temps. My a64 2800+ sits at around 38 celcius and only gets up to about 42-43 underload.

  3. You may need to download AMD's patch for the processor.

  8. IIRC, WinXP has integrated support for PowerNow! So there's no need for addtional software.

    BTW, why you need PowerNow? You have a desktop processor, not a mobile one

  9. I dont know what i need, i am looking for something to fix the readingson on my CPU. The temps could be right if i were on the dark side of the moon....but alas, i am not. I know its a fairly common glitch but i am looking for where to get the drivers, BIOS update, or whatecver i need to fix this. its just anoying that it reads the correct temp for about 5sec then says that the CPU is at -111C. Sometimes its +110C. Either way its not right. the heatsink is cool to the touch so i know i'm fine for my temps under heavy load......but i would like to fix it.
    if you know of anything or anyway to find out i would appretiate it. Thanx.

    Btw, i have checked the website for a BIOS update and it is the same as the one i already have.
  10. use temp. monitor utility of your motherboard and see what it tells

  11. DigiDoc says its 0C or 1C
  12. Does this temp seem normal to you? (considering you have liquid nitrogen cooling)

  13. No, i said since i wasn't using Liquid Nitrogen cooling the temp readings of -110C in on place and 0-1C in the other seem a bit low. I am using stock air cooling.
  14. The new BIOS should be out next week. There is a beta you can download, but I'm going to wait for the new one. I can't get the Chaintech hot anyway, even under intense load. The temp sensor on top of the 250 heatsink never gets above 93F. :smile:

  15. Thanx, i knew it was comming out soon or had just come out. I am not worried about it overheating it would just be nice to look down and see a number other then some Siberian Temp.
    Thanx
