    Default Temps in OC' Utility for AMD incorrect?

    I believe the temps I am getting for my 965be using the Asrock utillity are incorrect. They are average 10C above Core Temp. I have done several tests as my cpu was topping out at 66C according to the Asrock Utility. Does anyone else have an experience similar to mine?

    Compare the bios temps with cpuid hardware monitor and core temp. Try to use 3 readings to come to a conclusion.

    Also, are you overclocking? if so, what is your stats?

    If you are overclocking and you're getting temps of 66c you should stop before you cause damage.

    Make sure you get a decent cooler as well; they're only 30-40 bucks.

    Good Luck!

    Yes, I have it overclocked to 3.8ghz at stock voltage. I am using a Xigmatek Rifle cooler and there is plenty of air flow in my case. I believe the utility is wrong. I did compare temps in the bios to both, but that is only idle temps. Its the loaded temps I am worried about. Considering other temps I see on the web, I think core temp is in the right ball park. I would like to know what other people are seeing with their ASrock utility.
