looking at the other temps i would have to say that the probe or what ever it is is broken..

Yeah, it looks like a faulty sensor on the motherboard.

If you feel like taking a risk (you wont have to if you happen to have an infra-red thermometer), then you could touch a few of the hotspots (SB, PWMs etc) on your motherboard and see if they feel overly hot. Of course if the sensor isn't lying, you could end up burning yourself (hence the risk part).

One way to know it is a faulty sensor is if it reads that high immediately after turning on your computer (it has to have been off for a long time before though (long enough for it all to cool down to room temperature)).

yeah 222C would nuke the chipset, so it has to be a false reading.

I dont have the guts to touch any thing related to electricity :cry:

Any other way or solution ? A small cooling fan? :(

You can try this soloution:
One way to know it is a faulty sensor is if it reads that high immediately after turning on your computer (it has to have been off for a long time before though (long enough for it all to cool down to room temperature))


- Leave your computer off overnight so it has cooled down completely
- Turn it on in the morning and as soon as it's loaded, run that chipset temp program

If the temp sensor is a lot closer to the other readings, but is steadily climbing to the 100oC mark again, then it could be a loose heatsink. If it's already around the 100oC mark then it's definitely a faulty sensor.

we dont really know where that probe is, maybe its a pwm sensor? if it is then thats a little toasty but not too bad...

You meant the heatsink loose?
I dont use the pc whole night.
Here is a pi when I started the pc in this morning:

Definitely looks like that sensor is giving imaginary figures. Happens all the time on many motherboards.
No way anything on the board would get up to ~100°C yet everything would work fine.
You can just ignore it.

Chipset heatsinks are pretty much always fastened with small platic pins that have small springs on them that press the heatsink down. No practical way to tighten them - but then again, they already are as tight as they can be, thanks to the springs.

youd be suprised how hot volt regs get...

^Oh, but I do.
Really, 100°C in idle is definitely not even possible for any part of the VRM circuit of any component.

not true.ive had pwm's that pushed 100c on idle (accurate readings with a IR thermometer)

Thanks for the info. It's good to know that my new rig is normal.
