what temperature did blackbox report for "chassis" ?

if it really concerns you, you could get an external temperature sensor, such as this one

First they took a look at the temp info provided by the BIOS, and then I noticed that the values there were different: the processor was running at 88-90 șC, that's to close to the boling point, but the processor does not feel cold if you touch it. They flashed the BIOS with the latest firmware and it fixed the problem partially: both Speccy and Speedfan reported temperatures ranging from 35 to 45 șC for the CPU, but the board coontinued to report 70-75 șC.

They changed the thermal paste in both the OEM cooler and the heatsink on the northbridge chipset, and added an extra fan. The overall temp decreased (according to the programs) except for the mainboard in Speccy and for something called Aux in Speedfan. Both temp values remained unchanged.

Now, seeing that all those changes (new firmware, corrected CPU values, thermal paste, and an extra fan) did nothing to the board temperature makes me think there is a problem with that other sensor. Besides, if everything is cooler now, and if it's all cool to the touch, it has to be a wrong reading, unless, of course, the high temperature reading comes from the PSU itself, since it's the only thing they didn't touch (and the program that ickymay suggested actually says Chassis temperature, not motherboard...).

I believe that the Aux reading in speedfan is your MB (northbridge)

The CPU temps are good

My cousin is in same scenario except the bad temp sensor is for the CPU. He took it to the store, changed the heatsink/thermal paste and still the temps idles at 60 degrees and 90+ degrees load till the computer auto shuts itself. He's changed the CPU to a 3.4Ghz new one and still temps are the same. I've suspect BIOS, thermal sensor problem in his case and have advised him to look for a new motherboard if he wants to keep his current setup or else just build a new cheap rig and sell the working old parts.

Don't worry about CPU, that board model does have isues with CPU sensors. Just update the BIOS software and it'll be OK. The problem is that the other sensors, AUX (as reported by SpeedFan), seem to be inaccurate to.


I put a lot of fans and temp values just won't go down. I had the thermal paste for both the CPU and heatsink changed. I also tried removing the side covers. The interesting thing is that teperature values don't go dow even if you can physically feel they are lower (now the air that is being blown out feels much cooler than before, and the northbridge chip doesn't cause water to boils (it is supposed to be 100șC)).

I believe the porblem here is the sensors not the real temperature.

The Chassis temperature was 72-75 according to BlackBox
