Temp Sensor Trouble
I built my first computer about a week ago,the specs are at the bottom of the post. Im putting this thread under processors cause i dont know where else to put it...it not about my processor,its about my mainboard. The temp sensors on it are reading really high (like 250F for cpu,and 175F for system),but the actual processor sensors are saying the cores are each around 75-80F. I believe the core temps,obviously the computer wouldnt be running if it was 250F. When i first built the computer the bios said the cpu was in the 180s,and the comp was running about half the speed of what it should be. Then i figured out how to update the bios,and now everything (as far as speed,and smooth framerate) works fine except im curious if the mainboard sensors control the heatsink fan...
I got those temps from Speedfan. I had played half life 2 for about an hour,minimized it,opened speedfan and it said my cpu temp was -195F...yes,negative 195,lol...and the heatsink fan was about 1000 rpm slower than what it usually says its running at (around 1800) while the actual cpu temp was only in the high 90s.
The question im trying to get at is...is it worth it to bring the MB back and exchange it for another one? Or is this something that i can live with since everything works like it should except the MB temp sensors. Thanks.
