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

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.

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

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.

DigiDoc says its 0C or 1C

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.

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:

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
