Hello all!

I don;t know why I just noticed this but my AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ is running really Hot. I installed a CPU temp program and both it and my BIOS is reporting around 90C and above. Funny thing is that the temp will jump around every now and then going from 33C all the way up to almost 120C. Its really weird, I tired setting my Vcore down and still didn't make a difference.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

I dont think it is really getting to 120c. What motherboard are you using and what temp monitor program are you using. If it gets anywhere near those temps it "should" shut down.

Brisbane core CPUs don't always play nice with temp monitoring software. The only programs I've found that work with my 4800 are SiSandra Lite, Everest, and the Biostar program that came with my motherboard.

Yes, your temp sensor is totally off I would say. Try Everest Ultimate Edition.
I have a toledo 4400+ x2 and my CPU temp is alwasy ~53-55 C (idle) while my core temps are 33-36 C. I don't believe that. The CPU should be lower than the core temps I would say... In load the CPU temp goes up to 70 C and the core temps to 55-56 C.
