    Yes, I'm stupid, or maybe it's just the fever I have, but, I got this temperature read out, and I'm confused...what's at 80C? My mother board? It sure doesn't feel that hot....please check out the attachement, it's small, and it's a picture of the read out...
  2. 80 celcius?

    i'm not sure but C=(F-32)x5/9

    should be that formula

    80C = 176 F way way to hot and it's most likely ur CPU

    well, i think your settings are off in whatever program you are using. this is my reasons why i think this:

    1. mainboard =80C. That is probably your cpu. I dont think i have ever seen a mainboard that is higher than a cpu.

    2. even if this is saying your cpu is 80C, i think it would fry at that point. you mentioned your bios reads 60C, thats not great, but definately more reasonable. They always say to go by the bios, not your software.

    3. your fan speed isnt even reading the CPU fan. Is it spinning?

    Check your sensor settings in your software, they are wrong!
