New PC Temps
Hello,

I just built a new PC

AMD A8 3870K

8 GB DDR3 G.Skill ripjaw 12600 memory

OCZ Modexstream pro 700 W PSU

500 GB WD sata hardrive

Samsung Syncmaster DVD burner

Anyways all my temps are fine except one it says Temp 2 and it's around 80 C fluctuating between 75 and 85 so what is this and how do I fix it.

Thanks,

I haven't found speedfan real reliable for temps. What is the temp in the bios? That is the most reliable place to check it.

BTW while you're in the bios check your 12v rail it is a little high in speedfan, but probably is just being read wrong.

It would also help us if you post your full specs

Hey,

OK thanks I will check this for you and post back. I won't be home for like 4 hours or so, so it won't be until after that.

I have a new build also and AI Suite II shows my 12v rail as beeing 12.192
is the extra number just a difference between a ASUS product and speedfan
or is it telling me that my 12v rail is higher than the 12.61 shown in the thumbnail picture???
Vcore 0.660 ( this number keeps changing)
+12v 12.192
+5v 5.120
+3.3v 3.360
ASUS P8Z68 PRO V /GEN 3 mobo
INTEL 2500 I5 quad core

jamesx21 - You should start your own thread, but that is normal. 12.192 is lower than 12.61 and closer to 12.

Speedfan's day has long past. Either check your temps and voltages in the bios OR if you have an asus or gigabyte board, you can download asus probe [now part of the suite] or easytune respectively. These will give an accurate reading of temps and voltages.

I don't see anything to be alarmed about there.
Most likely the high temp in one core is due to a bad thermal diode in that core.
You can try HWmonitor and see what that shows.

Believe easytune. Your temps are fine; nothing to worry about. Are you having any stability problems or other issues?

Hey,

No everything seems fine I just have always used Speedfan and when I noticed that temp two was like 80C and had the big flame next to it I just was like ok what's up this is a brand new build and shouldn't be like this. I mean I don't even know what temp 2 is or what it's referring two but no I haven't had any problems with stability or anything.

So yeah thanks again for the responses and I will mark as solved.
