Alright, I'll be straight, I've never used AMD other than a GPU.
I built my brother a computer for christmas to play games. Here's the specs:
Enermax 550W PSU
Corsair vengeance 8gb (2 x 4gb) 1600Mhz
Western Digital 1TB blue drive
Antec Kuhler 620
Bitfenix Sprectre Pro 230mm fan intake
Corsair 120mm AF fans (rear exhaust/ top intake)
Windows 7 home
Alright now my question is, is it normal for these APU's to run incredibly hot? I was doing Prime 95 to test the cooler and noticed my package temp shot up to 78 degrees celcius in a matter of 15 seconds. I've done countless reinstalls of the hardware, from the stock coler, to a silverstone argon ar02, to the antec closed loop water cooler. All of the temps seem off or incredibly high.
After doing some looking around, I ran across this forum and someone saying HWmontior and pretty mu8ch every other program like it can't read APU temps right. Is this true. Also they said to look at TMPIN0 for your system temp and TMPIN2 for the core Apu TEMP. Mine only says TMPIN0 and TMPIN1. Are those essentially the same thing? I list the temps of the three during Prime 95 100% load.
TMPIN0: 48 degrees
TMPIN1: 49 degrees
APU Package: 78 degrees
Is everything running fine or is my chip bad? I just need help as my brother is going to leave soon so I want to gurantee everything is working properly before then.
Thanks for any help that can be given.
