FOr the CPU temp, use this:

For overclocking, the BIOS is a good place to start.

Where did it say that your CPU is overclocked? You can overclock your CPU, but when you buy your CPU and motherboard, they should all already by using stock settings. Unless there's a special edition Athlon 64 OC that I didn't know about.

Default Re: CPU temperature

well it's not a special edition.. but when i start my cpu.. sometimes it messes up cuz it crashed and rebooted itself.. and as the booting is proceeded.. it stops and asks

ur OVERCLOCKING measures failed or wahtever

and it gives me two options, to either load the setup utility in the bios, or run the previous settings or something..

yes, super edition amd 64 overclocking edition from chinatown :P

Default Re: CPU temperature

For the OVerclocking error, access the BIOS upon startup by hitting the 'Delete' key. Usually it's that button that gets into BIOS setup utility. Once in there, look for an option to change to default settings or something similar and save it. Then it will restart. It basically go back to stock.

As for the program, you need to download the Everest Home Edition first onto your hard drive. Once finished, just open up the folder and there should be a Everest.exe icon for you to double click on. A window will open and click on Motherboard/Sensor. That will give you your CPU and GPU temperatures.

You can also view your CPU temp. from your BIOS too.
