BIOS reads one thing, AOD reads another.  The cpu frequency in AOD will read 1400-3800 mhz and the temperature will jump around from 14-31 degreeC.  The BIOS shows a stable 3600mhz and a stable 34degreeC.  While in the board status header, the temperature will show a stable 16-18degreesC, no changes.  This is all very odd to me.

Any crazy suggestions?

First off:

What CPU are you running?

What motherobard are you using?

What BIOS version?


From my experience with using AOD on some AM3 and FM1 chips, it's not accurate. It takes the temperature reading...below the socket or something.

Use CPU-Z, HWMonitor, or AIDA64 to monitor your CPU frequency and temperature.

You can also try using your motherboard manufacturer's software (if they have any). you have any power saving features on? Cool N' Quiet? etc? These fill reduce the clock frequency when the system is idle to save power.
