Can anyone chime in on whether their temp readings are working?
When I get my laptop back I'll check the temps, which programs do you use apart from GPUZ?
I've tried speedfan, hw monitor, coretemps, amd overdrive, and the software that came with the mobo. Posted some screenshots on pg 3. Can't get consistent readings through those.
A10-6800K 4.4GHz + HD 7870 1200/1500
So now i made a proper screen specifically for this thread...
That is basically my standard configuration.
AMD A10-5800K APU @ 4.6GHz
Thermalright Archon SB-E
Corsair Dominator Platinum @ DDR3-2400 9-11-10-27
edit: chose the wrong BIOS profile, so gpu is at default
I'll put up some screenshots as soon as I find my perfect frequencies >.<
You have to use some old school methods to get the temps on these CPUs. It seems that there is a combination of AMD cheaping out on the temp sensor on the die and there not being enough support in software for reading it.
There is only one temp sensor on the die, unlike most other modern CPUs where there is a one sensor per core. It seems that either the sensor is total garbage or software just can't read it properly. This is the package sensor that HWMonitor reads. However, mine will jump between 40°C and 80°C in one reading cycle in HWMonitor. And if I put any kind of load on the CPU, even at totally stock settings, the reading redlines at 100°C+ almost instantly. That just isn't possible.
So I've been doing what we used to do before there were on die temp sensor, using the socket sensor on the motherboard, it give me far more accurate results.
Hi guys, been using an APU for just about a month now, got an A10-6800K. As most of you are experiencing, HWMonitor messes the temps up, however mu ASRock utility sensor seems to be correct. I'm not using this for anything heavy, just every day browsing/chatting and acting as my media server/htpc supplying data to a few devices around the house (Raspberry Pi yay!).
Quite satisfied with it though More details of the whole machine can be found in my current signature.
I've had great succes with "FusionTweaker" explained and discussed here.
That overclock is still going strong today, so this method is fine for long-term clocks.
Your chip should be supported; I don't know if trinity/Richland is supported though, suppose it could be easily tested by people in this thread .
COOOL I'll try this soon as I get home, thanks!
I'm still not in the list of this club...?
Count me in. A4 4000 3.0/3.2ghz , Gigabyte F2A75M-D3H and 4X Kingston DDR3 for 8GB Dual channel. When I tried a single channel ram stick of 8gb, Desktop graphics dropped to 4.3.

whats the chances of anyone getting a decent score on here, for the APU for TPU!
Sure! ...once they fix Windows 8.
I'll do it. Will do a 4.6GHz run
Do you guys have any thermal throttling issue with this APU? I am getting some strange readings in 3DMark Vantage. If I ran ONLY the CPU benchmark, I get ~11534 in CPU score. When I run the whole test, the CPU score plumbing to 6000~8000. I am using all stock settings in UEFI and a thermalright AXP-100 for cooling. This really shouldn't be happening. It seems you have pretty good knowledge on these APUs so I am asking for your help.
I tried several driver package--13.4mobo driver, 13.8beta graphic driver, 13.6beta graphic driver. And they all have the same problem.
Do you have a screenshot and i have to guess that your using the IGP correct.
Yes I have, with my TRUE when I did a really bad mount my A10-6800K started to throttle under load at 4.6GHz. I also had my A8-5600K throttle with the stock cooler at default settings under OCCT load as well.
I did get throttling with stock cooling when it turboed up to 4.4GHz but now no throtling with my Hyper 212+ Push/Pull and i've been upto 5GHz
Please update the list
I didn't have throttling issues with the 6800K's stock, but the 5600K's was like half the thickness and throttled under load.
A10-6800K @4.4GHz/844MHz with Stock cooling got upto 70c
No one now
Edit: I also own a C60,
