Zeb i don't think load is the issue. if it is reporting 85 C weather under load or not the solder would be dripping off the board.

At 85 C the machine would not operate.

Has to be a bad sensor on the board.

Just started computer, checked bios 1st up... cpu39c....mb..28c.
Zeb I downloaded your program, and it gives a cpu temp for each of the cores.
core 1..33c
core 2..32c
core 3..30c
core 4..30c
Can't see a MB temp anywhere.

If it was a crook sensor wouldn't it show a high reading in the bios??

Get yourself a copy of AIDA64. Worth the investment.

Not necessarily. I heard it explained once but cannot remember the exact words. The bios will give a reading that is all hardware based and taken from what i believe are called the base level readings of the sensors. Once an operating systen is loaded and a software monitoring system is installed the readings are calculated and taken from a different level of the sensor? This wpuld also explain why every system I have ever built had a 1-4 degree difference between what Bios temps reported and what software temps are reported. But that does not account for a 40 degree difference that you are seeing... if there are reports on the asus website of other with the same board and same problem I would contact tech support and ask for a RMA. Or from the point of purchase.

Hi :)
MB temp should TMPIN0/TMPIN1 etc.
TM = Temp
PIN(0)(1) etc = PIN # or Sensor #


However you might find SiSoftware Sandra lite better.
This is a freebie too.

Those numbers are bang on Andrew. Exactly where they should be!

How old is that board? Is it within 4-6 months old? Could be that the design of the sensors used in the board maybe a fairly new design also and that certain software programs designed to monitor systems and temps have not been updated to work with the sensors while other software products have been.

I would definately keep and eye on it and remember to always trust the bios readings over software readings.

Hi :)
The board is within an acceptable time frame (at least in the UK).
One of my problems with Asus is their ability to monitor what is happening with any true accurracy.
AI 2 suite sucks as much as all before it.
As for what the BIOS reports.
Maybe worth flashing (this would void the warranty/returns policy).

The most important thing is what your system is doing while under "normal" conditions.

Any doubts return the motherboard now.
While you still can.

Otherwise use the programs I have mentioned.
PCWizard when minimised shows on your screen all the time.
(Top right hand corner -default.)
Whilst this doesn't show mobo temps.
Any problems would be reflected in the CPU temps.

Hi :)
Things to check on your mobo.

Is it "Revision 3"

Latest BIOS
Improve system stability
P8H67-M PRO 1106 BIOS

It's a ASUS P8Z68-Vlx board.
BIOS Rev..0401
Build date 15/07/2011... so is very recent.
As far as the revision goes all I can seem to find is, Southbridge stepping. B3 Stepping..???
Mainboard Rev X.0x..???
Chipset Revision ...A10.

Couldn't find "Improve system stability" in the bios!!
Temps are good in bios and in SiSoftware Sandra lite. Thanks.

You could be right Joel, I'll contact the supplier of the MB tomorrow and see what they have to say.
Everything seems to be running ok at the moment, so I don't think It's a major drama...yet, but i'll keep my eye on it. :)

Thanks again, you have all been a great help to a Novice.

Hi :)
I looked back at the beginning of the thread.
Somehow got the wrong model.
Interestingly the model you quote doesn't exist according to Asus (UK - Aus).
So I do not where to go from there.

However I have found this.

Latest BIOS: - P8Z68-V 0902 BIOS

Price has dropped as well. :shock:

Hi :)
Wonder how significant that is?
Maybe, if you have even the slightest doubt over this board.
You should return it.
Stating the implied problems.

Temperature is remaining constant 35-40c
there is a three year warranty with it, I'll see how it goes.

If the software Zeb suggested is giving you almost the same temps you get in the bios then stick with it and just keep an eye on it.

Good luck with the board and keep us posted!
