CPU Temp



  • Over the last several months, my NTG Desktop has been rebooting at random intervals. The reboot appears as it if was a power cycle,.. no Win BSOD - just a black screen.

    Windows will report about 20 or so minutes later that the system was shutdown incorrectly, but little else.

    At first I was thinking it could be the OS - then it allowing the pattern to build history, it seemed more intune with a PSU problem.

    In reviewing the CPUID HWMonitor stats, maybe it's more like the CPU is over heating?0_1499440570929_2017-07-07 11_12_18-.png



  • I think the A10 is supposed to have a max average temperature of 60C. From the looks of it you're right in the middle of their average range. Although the spiking to 82C is suspect.



  • @coliver Yeah, that spike makes me wonder if the CPU fan is intermittently crapping out.

    That could be. Could be the thermal paste needs to be reapplied.



  • Running Prime95 currently, and the temp is running about 94c

    Fan / thermal paste are a easy fix...



  • The cpu is hitting 82C but the on die gpu is 12C? How?



  • @gjacobse
    Take it from me managing AMD temp is pain in the ass I have a88x-g43 with an Athlon x4 750K and I am very disappointed with the hardware reporting.

    First of all what is the real temp TMPIN0/1/2 or the Package cause the BIOS and MSI tool points to my TMPIN0 as my CPU but I dont believe this. every other tool uses the package as the temp (SPeccy/Real Temp).

    Also I noticed from Win 7 to Win 10 I gained extra 5C on both, no shit. I once saw the package reach 70C, my max temp for your CPU and mine are 71C. Just keep the fans high, and disable the Turbo Boost feature, and instead dont make the cpu get to low in its P states I understand this for mobile factors only but not desktops:

  • Have you attempted to clean out the heatsink for the CPU?

    A can of pressurized air is another simple fix.

    I do a cleaning from time to time.... and it doesn't seem to help any.



  • @gjacobse I dont think anything being reported by your temp program is accurate. Are you outside in the middle of winter right now? How is it possible your gpu is running at 32F/0C? Liquid nitrogen cooling on a work desktop?
    Also, look at those voltages, no wonder AMD was no competition for intel the last ten years(changed as of ryzen).



  • Are the temperatures reported on a Live Linux Disk or with another OS? I am pretty sure you have updated all the BIOS and firmware on the motherboard.
    Any other CPU monitoring tools reporting the same temperature?



  • Performed a case PM, system wasn't all that dusty. There wasn't really anything in the fins of the CPU block.. I did go ahead and clean / apply Thermal Grease.

    Kicked up the CPU fan to Turbo, adds another 1krpm.. will have to see if that helps.



  • Current BIOS date is 0401 Build 2014. That is the next thing to check / do.



  • Well now that I am running Korora - I am looking for something to monitor it.

    Glances has been install as is running. But as of yet, don't see temp shown.

    I don't think Glances collects temp info.



  • Glances is a system tool, not a hardware tool.

    Makes sense

    Started looking into it a few hours ago, then shutdown for the night

    No package lm-sensors available.
    


  • dnf search sensors

    pretty sure it's lm_sensors



  • @wirestyle22 said in CPU Temp:

    dnf search sensors

    pretty sure in fedora (which I think JB prefers right now) it's lm_sensors

    You are quite right,.. ugh.. Mondays... I need more coffee

    It's fine, it's the same package in CentOS. Idk why I said that. Corrected original post.



  • It's installed -
