    i bought an AMD X2 5000 Brisbane... when i run a temperature test its really suspicious... can anyone help me with my temp readings?

    CPUID and Core temp reads it lower that my ambient room while Speedfan i dont understand which is telling the truth..

    is this processor is defective?

    Specs are:
    Emaxx ANF82HD - Pro http://www.emaxxtech.com/products.php?id=9
    AMD X2 5000 (2.6) not OC with Evercool Raspid Cpu Cooler
    HDD 40gb sATA
    HDD 80gb sATAT
    2x1gb ram


    attached are my temp readings and my casing 2x120mm and 3x80mm fan... i cant afford water cooling...

    Speedfan looks like the only one reading correctly. Seems like it thinks you have a dual processor MB one is reading no processor 11C, the other is reading 40C which is about right.

    I've had a lot of trouble getting utilities to read correct temperatures on my ECS boards. If they are pulling the temperature out of the bios the bios might not be calibrated to a particular cpu or chipset. Run the CPU hard for 20 minute sthen reboot and check the BIOS temperature readings.

    If the CPU is showing the proper info and getting about the right benchmarks it is ok.

    Brisbane's do not report temps correctly. You're BIOS will usually read it right so at least you know what you idle at. I've found that what ever CoreTemp reports is low by about 23 degrees.

    I have always found Speedfan to be pretty accurate.
    You have to make sure you are setting the sensor you want to monitor as it will detect all sensors.
