I have a X2 brisbane 5600+ and 9800GT they always run at stable temps, I have really good cooling in my case, I leave cpuid hwmonitor on whenever im in games on my secondary display, Anyway I accidently minimized the app and I just exited to my desktop and it shows that my cpu maxed out at 228º this isnt possible is it? my temps are always stable no matter what load I am running.. Any ideas why it would show the cpu getting that hot?

When I came back to my desktop the current cpu temp was 41, minimum 29 maximum 228ºC 441ºF

wtf?

That can't be true.

BTW HWmonitor shows my fan speed as 35000RPM.

Check with realtemp or coretemp.

Actually, I've also experienced some irregularity with HWMonitor. My GPU suddenly had a max temp of -956794539953497695 (not exactly like this but close to this). I think this is a bug on HWMonitor.

I have tried running a few other temp monitoring programs and regular hardware monitor (not cpuid hardware monitor) showed all my temps cut in half, 50% less then they are on cpuid hardware monitor?

Mabey I should pay attention to the temps that are the highest? lol

Your CPU would have melted at 228C... Sounds like a bug; try re-installing the application. I also use HWmonitor and it works fine.

Yea, I have always used hwmonitor and it has worked great, I put this 9800gt in a couple days ago and the temps have been a bit funky, anyway thanks for your feedback

Mine works well too.Its just with the fan speed.

This might be another case of the cpu voltage set too high in the bios. Check to see if your VCore is between 1.3 and 1.35 volt. You might need to flash a bios update or set VCore manually.

Really? I think we're pretty sure it's a problem with hwmonitor...

While the silicon could take temps 5x that easily, the tiny wires and your motherboard socket would have melted away at those temps ;)

Just download Coretemp or Realtemp and see if they report the same number.

Real Temp won't work on AMD CPUs. Core Temp may show some stupidly low number for core temps if it's a G1/G2 stepping.

I said "might"! Brisbanes are know to have this problem. It doesn't cost anything to check.

As much as may be right, the chip is NOT running at 228C

Simply a software problem.
I use Speed Fan and sometimes is says -15 or +230 or w.e
So its not true
