Upgrade Bios , Processor Jumped 15 Degrees?


Recommended Posts

I have an Asus P5GD2 Premium Motherboard with a 3.4 Pentium 4

I had it Overclocked to 3.9 and the temp was at 40-42 idle

I upgraded the Bios today , and the Temp is now 56-60 idle and thats after i downclocked it back to 3.4

What Happened ????

Im confused :(


PS What is a safe Temp to be running at Idle

Try to revert back to the original bios. You have to use afudos.exe in dos mode to do so. The bios can be downloaded or it probably will be on asus CD. Then you can again check the temp.

The prescott's (if you have one) are happy at higher temperatures, mine runs at 56-60 c without overclocking that too using a copper core heatsink!

You can search at http://www.techsupportforum.com/archive/in...php/t-8750.html for other solutions.

Yes i Reverted back down , This is what happened

1004 - is the version my mobo was out of box

1009 - Upgraded last night to , System temp was idle at 66c , NO OC!

1003 - Reverted using EZ flash , bios on cd was 1003

System is now at 1003 , and Overclocked to 3.9 , Idle at 40c

Might upgrade back to 1004 tonite :blink:


Asus has no clue whats going on , and has no record of this problem


* If it aint broke , Dont Upgrade it! *
