I`ve Phenom 9850 2.5
I`ve updated my bios and, wierd thing, my processor temp now is higher (36C) in idle (29 before bios update). Single cores temp is the same (32C). Could someone explain me that?

I test temps via Everest.

If temp is same as before in Coretemp (0.99.4), then it isn't a problem. BIOS usually don't read exact temp. Rely on Coretemp, Realtemp, Speedfan for more accurate temp readings.

well, rely on temps of the cores themselves that is (regarding the speedfan mention)

dont mind my first post, i come from driverheaven & rage3d

no need to worry, it's fine

unless.. an auto voltage is giving more than it used to, or if you used to be set on manual & the bios update put it on auto

not that it's a bad temp, load is what really matters right?

Anyone knows, why this temp was increased. I`ve updated my bios from F4 to F6.

First I had a thought that if the new bios enabled CPU Tweak, but since only the "CPU temperature" has increased and not the real core temps, that can't be the case. Or awhat temps are you preferring? If the single CPU temp has raised but not the four individual readings, then it's a glitch in the bios, but if your individual temps have been rised for 7C, you definately have CPU Tweak enabled. I think some bioses have it enabled at default. Check it. It is probably hided in bios and you need to press ctrl+f1 in order to find it.

It seems to be the case that all AMD chipset mobos from gigabyte have the CPU temp off quite a lot. The real core temperature is about 5-10 degrees lower depending on temp. I have had the same core temps with every program I tried (AOD, Speedfan, CoreTemp, HW monitor).

Cheers

(Edit: But if you are not going to do overclocking, I suggest you leave the CPU Tweak on, it boosts performance a little. And it doesn't raise the load temps much, only idle)

Have you enabled more things in the Bios? Or is your fan sick?
