Hey everyone - I have an odd situation. My Audio Workstation is running an Athlon 64 2.2 GHz processor, 2 GB of RAM on a Gigabyte motherboard. The case is a Thermaltake 5000 full tower, so there is plenty of room inside. The case has 5 fans (2 side, 1 rear, 1 hood and 1 front) plus the CPU fan of course. The wiring is neatly bundled and out of the way so there is plenty of air flow. I only have 1 IDE drive, and the other 2 are SATA so there are not a lot of IDE ribbon cables in the way (I don't even have a floppy so that's even less stuff in the way). The case also has 3 sensors which display temps on the front LCD display. I have 2 sensors on the heat sink and one about 6 inches from the CPU unit so I can get 2 readings off the CPU and 1 of the case temp. The 2 CPU sensors on the sink have been giving a temp reading of around 75-80 degrees F WHEN IDLE, which I think is VERY HIGH. The Gigabyte motherboard has a built in BIOS app which gives the current CPU temp, and get this - it reads 45 degrees CELSIUS, which is around 113 degrees F...which is WAY over the top. Obviously, I have the system shut down until I can figure out what the hell is going on. The fans are all working fine, no dust whatsoever in the case...I am a bit confused...and these are all readings when there is no load on the processor at all. Any ideas?
