Windows 7: Is it really overheating, bad sensor, or another problem?

Your +12 V still only says 9.9 I`m not sure exactly what that is supposed to say using hardware monitor.

My 1000 watt EVGA only says 7.08 Volts there, so who knows if that`s suppose to fluctuate or not, the only true way to test that is with a volt meter.

But I really don`t see any difference in your screenshots.

Use the bios to check the voltages and temps, I just went in and my +12 volts is fine, so I wouldn`t trust Hardware Monitor too much.

What power supply did you get ?

Post a link please.

Hardware Monitor reads low voltage for a lot of users. Check the BIOS

Correct.

Hardware Monitor has not been working correctly for many in the last couple of weeks.
Hopefully Hardware Monitor people will get it fixed soon. It has been a good program for a long time is the past.

I'm concerned with the 1.9 & 2.02 V readings for the CPU and the 117 C & 115 C temp spikes in TMPIN1 & TMPIN2 (or should my only concern be the temperatures listed under AMD FX-4130?).

This is the PSU I bought: CORSAIR CX series CX500 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Newegg.com

Posting pictures of the BIOS screens...

And a picture of the message I got when I booted the computer. It's been running over 4 hours as of this posting.

Everything in the bios looks fine.

Hardware monitor is garbage, it`s not reading temps right, uninstall it.

Why is it running startup repair ?

Get your data off (if you have anything important) you shouldn`t, and reinstall windows.

Are you actually able to feel the heat off the computer? 100+ in celcius will def be noticable around the case.

Your processor shoumd be ok up to around the 70's in terms of celsius, it wont be so good for you but the chip can take it. Its performance would be lowered though as its conductivity will be down

I have no idea why it was running startup repair. It finished shortly after I posted that and when I logged in there was an error on the desktop telling me that it couldn't start because a dll file was missing. Some of the icons are gone as well as entire programs missing from their program files folders. Browsers, email client, BigFish game is manager gone but the games are still in their folders....Oh, and no need to uninstall Hardware Monitor...it disappeared too. For future reference is there one that does work well?

Which brings me to this question...Do I need to reinstall windows or buy a new hard drive then reinstall? The reason I ask is because my hard drive has 3 partitions (250 GB, 32GB, & 650 GB). The OS is on the 250GB partition and the 650GB partition is where I store everything I want to keep in case windows crashes. Also, I'm a big fan of redundancy & having multiple copies of everything important.


link238: I only actually felt heat the first time it overheated. At that time I removed the HS/Fan that came with it and replaced it with the HS/Fan from an AMD FX-8350. Hardware Monitor and Core Temp still gave me temp spikes of 117 C & 256 C respectively despite the fact that there is no evidence that there was ever a temperature that high (the back of the motherboard would be discolored).

You can look at Speccy, a free download from Piriform. It's generally well thought of but I won't say it's flawless. Here's a sample screen shot.

If you want to stress test the PC, you can run something like Prime95.

Re 3 partitions: Good idea to have data separate from OS, but do you have the data backed up onto another discrete drive? What's on the 32 GB partition?

Was thinking of asking about the other partition.

The h/s fan on a 8350 isnt any better. These things generate a ton of heat. I run a 8350 and recently switched over to liquid cooling. If you can support it i would def suggest it. Corsair or cooler master are cheap but good. I would regularly get temps around 40c around my processor. Had a house fan blowing on the sob constantly and still wasnt good. But i do have to say, never went up to 60 let alone 70 or 100. As for new install, not sure.

One thing i'd suggest is something like an external temp monitoring addon. For example i'm going to be getting an NZXT Sentry 3, its a mix fan control and temp sensors
