im from germany and hope you can forgive me for my bad english.
I have following problem. When i start prime95 my processor need 5-6 Minutes to reach the critical Temperatur of 62°C i think and react with a decreasing from 2,8 Ghz to 1,5 Ghz that he can cool down a little bit.
In Windows with Fan Control and other Monitor Programms he shows me 55°C. But in normal Mode he gives me in Windows 36°C and in the Bios 43°C so i think there is a mistake of 7 degreas. So my processor should reach 62°C and not 55°C is that right?
The guy from the hardware store try to tell me that there is something wrong with the software and there are wrong temperature sensors which are the reason for my problem.
But i think the problem is that he build in only a Cooler Master TX3 over the CPU and only a 120cm Fan in front of the Chassi. There is no Fan on the back side which brings the heat off the pc.

What are you thinking? I dont think that there is a mistake with the chip and so far in know this thermaldrop reaction have nothing to do with the Software and Windows Version.

here is my PC:
AMD X6 1055T
GTX 460 810Mhz OC Version
4GB Ram
Asus M4N68T-M LE V2 Mainboard
Cooler Master TX3 CPU Fan
Ximatek Asgard CHasi(I hope this word is correct for that what i mean )
450W Bequiet

Thanks for you time

Check your core voltage. Mine was set to 1.475v and I had a bios idol of 68c. I lowered my vcore to 1.4v and it lowered BIOS idol to 56c.

BIOS has no software to control the idol of the CPU so your temperatures will get higher in bios than in Windows.

Can you take some pictures of the inside of your case so that we can get a visual of what kind of cooling you have setup in your case?

Add some fans. Five packs are the cheapest way to go with fans. You want fans to exaust and intake air to reduce the internal temps as much as possable. You have a hot gpu too. The air your using to cool the cpu is alrighty very warm because its sitting in your case and warmed by the other components.

Get some fans and you ll see a nice temp reduction. The 1055 does have a temp issue in that it says it about 10c cooler than it really is. IF i went by what my 1055 tells my then im below room temp....which isnt possable on a H70 cooler.

My lowest idles on a cooler day are 13c.... add 10c to that temp and youll be close to my true temps.
