I bought the A10 5800k about 2 months ago and was really happy as soon as i got it.
Soon I got problems with my Pc freezing and I started to check my temperatures with 3 programms.
1.) Core Temp 2.) SpeedFan 3.) HWMonitor
They all showed me CPU temperatures far above 70°C, 80°C. My first thought was a wrong installation of the CPU or the fan. So i removed them both, and set them with new heatsink paste on the board. Again I got extremly high temperatures.
I then updated the UEFI to 2.20 and after that, everything was okay. Even after a hour with prime95 the temps doesn't moved over the 60°C mark.
Since I had finals last month my computer was off for a few weeks. Now finally being able to play a bit, I started Battlefield 3 and soon got heavy laggs cause of my CPU throttled itself.
Dont tell me I need a new CPU fan, its either a problem with the heat sensors or with failing software.
Thanks for reading this text.
