Hi,

I am using AMD Athlon 64 3200+ with original fan and heatsink, and my motherboard is Asus K8V SE Deluxe. I have additional 2 80mm front, 1 80mm rear, 1 80mm side-panel fans, 1 VGA cooler installed. I also installed distributed computing which will run my CPU 100% all the time. I run my PC 24/7. My question is everytime I restart my computer, it always displaying CPU overheat. I also install Cool & Quiet, Asus probe. On my Asus Probe, it said that the power fan isn't working. Power fan value is 0, and status is monitor paused. The cables from power fan to motherboard is attached properly. I also open the case and I saw all the fans are working properly, including the power fan, CPU fan. CPU temperature is always around 60 - 62C. Is it normal? CPU fan speed is around 3300 - 4100. Chasis fan speed is around 2500 - 2800. Even if my CPU temperature is 63C, the CPU fan is still on 3200. Why is that? What should I do? Could someone help me out please? Thank you so much.

it seems like the temp sensor on your motherboard is reading a bit wrong. i would try to update bios and see what happens. also, just to be safe touch the processor heatsink. if its not hot and doesnt burn your fingers, then you should be fine.

Hi,

I just installed the newest BIOS version, and the CPU temp is around 40C, which makes me happy. On the other hand, after I installed the new bios, on the device manager, it said that WINXP Promise Fast Trak 379 Controller ( the device cannot start ). I already re-tried to install the fast trak driver, but it still the same. Could someone help me out please?

sometimes flashing the bios may cause you windows program to malfunction, or even cause your windows to corrupt or crash at rare occasions. I'm the unlucky one who got the rare kind.

I reformated my hard disk, install windows xp, and now my PC is alright. you can try if you wan...
