I am having a strange issue with temps. I finally got my XFX MB to read the CPU right , but it shows the temps at 10+ degrees higher than I ever saw on my old MB.
I have upped the alarm temps, have my A/C cranking and the sides off the case with a 10" fan blowing in it to help.
On my old FIC , with all the same hardware this AMD 1700+ ran at a smooth 35-39c , now it runs , or this board reports it at 50-53c !
yes I have 3 case fans not counting the PS , CPU , or V Card, and all the fans are spinning as they should. Plenty of grease between the HS & CPU.
*** No overclocking*** all running at the 2x133 ( cpu & ram )
I cant get help from XFX ( Pine ) , sat on hold for 30 mins already.
the board is a XFX NF2S-ALH I got it for the possible future upgrade to a Barton CPU & some 400 mhz DDR.
thanks in advance,
