    just built and need a little help

    Hi

    I've just built my first pc and it booted first time & windows installed no probs

    There are a couple of problrems that I'm hoping you can help with.

    Firstly in pc wizard it says my power/aux temp is 124.5 c but surely this must be wrong as everything would be melting.

    Also I have 3 sata devices on my mobo, 1 x dvd/rw 1x36gb raptor and a western digital 320gb. Now, in the bios it finds all 3, in device manager in windows it shows all 3, but when I click on my computer it doesn't show the 320gb hdd

    Would this be because I haven't formatted it?? If so how do I do it as I can't find how to (apart from installing windows on it).

    And lastly is it normal for the 2 cores on the e6600 to have different temps?? core 1 is 28c and core 2 is 32c

    Any help gladly appreciated

    Mish

    Ohh yeah specs are

    Asus commando, c2d e6600, 2gb corsair xms2, x1950pro, corsair hx620psu, the drives mentioned abouve. and all in the antec 900...man thats a tight case

    The un recognised hdd is because it's unformated, control panel - performance and maintenance - administration tools - disc manager
    just had same prob, both cores of the duo seem to run at different speeds never both the same unless there on o% or 100% so slightly different temps wouldn't be a prob.
    Check what your temps are in bios, pc wizard may be corrupt, if thats not it make sure your cooler is seated right.

    Thanks m8

    The cooler is on correctly, I triple checked it 4 times

    Isn't the power/aux temp to do with the psu?

    Aux means nothing anyway it give loads of people garbage values - don't worry about it. You can remove it in the settings if you want

    temps can be wrong if the program is interpreting the sensor wrongly. My old board used to (according to sisoft sandra) be well over 300 degC . 125c is more plausible but still unlikely. Do you know where the AUX sensor is on the board? Does anything inside the case feel like it might be giving out that much heat?

    This might sound like a silly question, but have you installed all your motherboard drivers?
    windows will generally work without them because it will be useing a default set, this is what might be generateing the erronious numbers.

    I see you didnt read the commando thread then

    Dont worry about the temps, they are ok, be more worried about the ram frying.

    lol I did read it, and tbh I read people having problems of somekind or another with all mobo's (not all here but I g00gled my a*se off )

    Was lost in a bog of motherboards, then I saw a bundle on yoyotech with corsair memory and took the plunge.

    Is the frying ram a random thing or would it have done it early doors?

    Seemed to be random on the 3 I had.

    You might be OK, but if you have a search on here, I think there are only 1 or 2 people out of the ones that first bought them, that still have them, and only one of those isnt an RMA replacement.

    Good luck

    the 125 degrees is showing the sensor as open circuit, due to nothing being there to sence, some read nothing as 0, minus figures or the 124.whatever (always a slight inacuracy) so its nothing to worry about.

    Your bios should show the correct temp. If that says 125 then you can start to worry.
