    Hi guys,

    I recently upgraded to a p5W-dh deluxe and a e6600 (o/c'd 10%) everything has been running fine but i just checked the temperatures after the computer being on for about 9hours and the readings I am getting are:

    System: 38C
    CPU: 150C

    Is that even possible? 150C is mega hot! surely the computer should have shutdown through fault?

    Running 2gb ddr800 ram, x800xt, with two 80mm fans and a standard cpu heatsink/fan.

    Any advice would be appreciated!

    I suspect the temp sensor is not working or software reporting the temperature is not reading the sensor properly. Most CPUs will shut down or die, well below 100C.

    How are you monitoring the temp?

    Asus Pc Probe. I turned off for half an hour and restarted and it went back down to 44C which is average I think...

    I will wait and see how it goes and report back...

    At 150 degrees.. Surely the motherboard would have melted + caught fire...

    Asus pc prope is absolute crap. Try this http://shintai.ambition.cz/files/tat.exe Its the only decent one that can be relied on as well as core temp. You could get this easily by googling core temp but intel tat is a little harder to get as it's not availible from intel themselves.

    Yep had a look at pc wizard, seems to be an anomalous reading on the ASUS front. Kept it on for the same length of time today and it hasn't happened yet... so I guess that was the answer! Nice and simple thankfully!!! Cheers for the replies !

    One thing you could do to make sure is poke an electronic thermometer into the heatsink fans, the things such as the sensors found on PC cases. If you poke the sensor to the bottom of the middle fins, it usually gives a reading accurate to 3 degrees C or so.
