I am having really weird problems with my setup, and I wonder if anybody is having the same problems. I got my setup at AMD/Microsoft AMD tech tour.

1st Problem
When I use 2 PCI cards (Adaptec U160 SCSI Controller and Sound Blaster Audigy 2) in my PCI-X slots, my temperature for my CPU1 and local motherboard temperatures would just to 255 Celsius. Another issue is that my Power Voltage readings would jump up to 16V, instead of being the standard 12V. The voltage readings for (-3.3, -5, -12) would also be way off too. Now When I remove one of the cards, everything reads perfectly! Everything reads perfectly also when I have one card in the PCI-X slot and the other in the PCI slot. Very weird problem...

2nd Problem
When I use SandraSoft SiSoft to read my voltage readings on the motherboard, I have a have weird readings for my -5V. It would be something like -1.1 or something around there. I get the same readings using Motherboard Monitor. But I been using my computer, and everything seems stable and find.

I am using a Antec TP2-550EPS12V power supply, with the latest motherboard BIOS.

I tried 3 K8SE motherboards and 2 TP2-550EPS12V power supplies, and every board seems to have the same problem.

Is anybody having the same problems or having something similar happening to them?

One suggestion - don't use Tyan.
BIOS health monitor can show any number, it's standard problem.
I've seen CPU temperatur 220 Celsius, i've seen 15 identical systems with totally different results (from 30 to 70 degrees of Celsius).

AMD rulezzzzz!
