That's more like it. You're going to need a reliable reading for the stress tests I'm going to recommend. Try HWMonitor and see what that reads out. I'm going to get someone to take a look at your voltages as well as I'm not entirely happy with you 12v rail.

I'm running HWMonitor now, but the temps are wrong just like in CoreTemp. AMD has some weird formula for temperatures where you might need an offset in order to understand it (AMD doesn't use C or F, they use a scale from 0-255 for the temperature and translate that into C, but some report that it might not be a linear scale). I didn't have a problem with my laptop that has an AMD A6-3400M APU - I didn't need an offset for CoreTemp, and it reads correctly.

Here is the data from HWMonitor:

OK, we know your CPU temperature is OK at idle so if you're happy knowing your top limit with the readings it's giving I'll recommend some stress tests. I'll just get someone to drop by and look at your voltages first.

That's a messed up way of reporting temperatures on that CPU though.

Yeah those voltages I don't like. 8v instead of 12v, 3v instead of 5v.

I'm trying to stress test on my own (sort of), I'm running n64 roms with all cheats enabled (basically bad code that causes memory leaks) and video recording the cpu temps, usage, ram used, voltages across motherboard, etc. Hoping to get a controlled restart, but to no avail.

Those readings in HWMonitor don't match up with what's in your BIOS, the BIOS ones are what you should concentrate on.

The stress tests we recommend are designed to stress and test individual components and will be much more thorough and definitive.

So.... all or most of the data from HWMonitor might be wrong/useless?

In a nutshell, yes. Try Speccy (linked in my sig below) and see what that reports.

Speccy reads CPU temp is 50F, house is 66F. Mobo system temp says 85F.

Voltages read exactly the same as hwmonitor read.

That's really strange. My voltages are absolutely perfect in both Speccy and HWMonitor.

It could just be an inaccuracy with the sensors on that model motherboard, monitoring software is known to be good for some and bad for others. It's your temperatures I'm more concerned about going through the stress tests, are you happy to run some stress and diagnostics tests?
