Windows 7: Random Shutdown No BSOD Strange HWMonitor temperatures

my HWmonitor is pretty large due to having 3 HDD in there. Anyways I could go ahead and attempt a full run of a game for a few hours with PowerNow! on the system turned off. I tried it for 30 mins but I wasn't sure if that would cause a difference. and somewhat fearing of damaging the machine if PowerNow was shutting the system off due to heat. But I guess I do have the Internal Bios set to shut my system down once it goes over a certain temp. So I should be safe.

I do believe one of the problems is HWMonitor is giving false readings.

Look at your 12v+ (4.464v). It wouldn't even boot if the voltage reading was correct.

@BBall:

I just noticed that your CPU socket temp is out of whack. Can you try Speedfan for temps and fan speeds?

SpeedFan - Access temperature sensor in your computer

I'd also suggest CoreTemp for the CPU core temperature:

Maybe with Speedfan and CoreTemp, we can get some sort of comparison that seems to be a bit more reasonable.

I believe if you have the core unlocker active in the bios this will disable the temperature readings of Core Temp. I am sure the setting is Advanced Clock Calibration. Set that to disabled then core temp will read higher than 0C which is false.
In my bios that setting is in the advanced CPU configuration.

You got malware from Speedfan? That's good to know, I'll avoid recommending it in future. I've never had a problem with it. Sorry about that.

I noticed that the version that you're using is 4.47. The current version is 4.49. I wonder if you got a bogus download link from the page?

Anyway, Speedfan isn't reading your temps right either. "Temp1" should be a lot higher than it is, since that's usually your socket temperature.

well it was the link you shot to me, Anyways, I'll make sure to go through Major Geeks next time I'm really wondering if It's the sensors but that would mean that would be 2 motherboards from Biostar I've gotten that have read the wrong temps.

Another thing .. PowerNow. What is it. I see it in the Bios of the the Motherboard and after reading about it, It's mainly for Laptops? I have it turned off right now and it talks about ACPI type events off the processor.

As such I believe the issue was that Powernow Option in the Bios being Labeled. Since I turned it off , I haven't had trouble. the new fan is in. WHen I get home here in a bit I am going to switch the power now option back on after installing the new Fan on the CPU cooler. afterwards I'll Record my findings and Mark solved if it happens agains after turning the PowerNow Option on.
