Athlon 64 3400+ running hot!
Ok, I recently purchased a clawhammer A64 3400+ and a DFI K8T800pro. I just got it all setup and the temps are at 49 normal and 64 full load. I know the heatsink has full contact as well because I have reseated it multiple times. I have updated the bios and all new drivers are installed. I put as5 on as well. And I know for a fact I did not put to much on. BUT the heatsink when the temp is 64 is not really that hot. I could hold my hand on it for hours if I wanted to without even getting close to being burned. So I figured that maby the temp sensor is messed. But I have no way of knowing what the correct temperature should be if the sensor is indeed messed up. NOTE: I get the same temp with multiple programs. I need help trying to figure out if this chip just runs this hot or if is a sensor problem.

I have the 3500 and the team stays in the high 20's i believe and maybe the low 30's. I am not sure but I have to look at my bios when I get home. I know it is not hot as you are describing. that is something to be concerned about.Gigabyte GA-EP35-DS3L - Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale

Anyone else? I just got back from school and have been running cpu burnin all day and its been at 62C for full load. This cant be right because this cpu was at 44 idle with my other mobo.

pea sized... just enough so that you could still make out the lettering on the heat spreader

it should be the size of a small grain of rice just the center is the hot spot on amd64 ,Too much is bad.I had temps. in the upper 50C-60C intill I applied it correctly,now it's about 42C-48C (AMD64 4000 run warm)after appling run prime95 for a day,this will make the AS5 set in

I run at like 35ish idle...and can go up to high 40s.-Space

I put rice sized amount on and spread it out and temp is still idleing at 48C. I dont understand how it could idle that high! The heatsink is on perfectly as far as I can tell and I have the correct amount to as5 on! There is no way it could be idleing that high! There has to be a censor error or something. This is really pissing me off. First I ruin my other mobo for this cpu and now I cant get this new cpu to run at the right temps. I am having nothing but problems with this AMD.
EDIT: I should have stuck with Intel at least my 2.4c was overclocked 400mhz and it had a load temp better than this 64. Stupid AMD piece of junk.
nah....just kidding not junk but just a little frustrated by it.

I believe it is temp. sensor error. try putting a temp. probe on the bottom of the heatsink.
What heatsink have you got?

Did you flash your mobo's latest BIOS? That helped correct the heat readings with my 3200. Temperature dropped like 5 degrees Celsius.My other car is a T-34.

I have updated bios and it didnt change anything. I got the stock a64 heatsink on there which SHOULD keep it at least below 50 full load not 60's! But what about this temp probe. What is it and what does it do and how do i use it and how much does it cost. I am really strapped for cash after buying this stuff so I cant spend ANY money on anything.
EDIT: and it doesnt help they I ruined my brand new MSI board when trying to flash which made me have to buy a new crappier board as I did not have money for anything else

It happened to me that the cpu level on the MSI didnt went all way down and I was getting a hotter temps like you were describing after checking seating the lever correctly, it went down to 40C idle (hot room), when AC is turned on it goes to the 35, Im using stock fan tought and its a 3000.

This is crazy. I just lowered the multiplyer so my cpu is running a 1ghz and its still running at 51C but I dont think the multiplyer changes the temp at all right?
