Man. It's just been problem, problem, issue, problem, and more problems. Did i mention I've been having problems? But all kidding aside, in SpeedFan, all my temperatures are normal; (Readings are in Fahrenheit) System: 71, CPU: 73, HD0: 77, Core0: 32, Core1: 37, Core2: 14, Core3: 14. Except for this one Sensor named "AUX" which registers at 250 degrees!!! I googled this and found this article LINK and it said that AUX is just a misreading because it can't find a sensor, and that they should use "Sensors View" To be honest, i was a bit skeptical, because the reading for AUX kept fluctuating from 200-260. But i tried it anyway. I gave me the same reading! Does anybody even know what AUX is? It doesn't seem to be having an impact on my systems performance, but it troubles me. It also troubles me because this system is no more than 10 days old! Please respond. Thanks!

It most likely is a misreading, however, 73 degrees C is really hot for that CPU-especially when just idling, the max threshold for that cpu is 72.6 C. What kind of cooling do you have? (Case, fans, and CPU cooler included)

Again, the post said that the readings were in Fahrenheit, not Celsius! LOL! If they were, i'd be more worried about the CPU than anything else!

hehe oops Im sorry I misread, Im so used to people posting in C. (thats most temp sensor programs default) In that case, Id say those temps are very good. Sometimes a temp sensor package will not work with certain chipsets or motherboards depending on what the manufacturer includes, its impossible to test a program on every single type of motherboard out there so the makers make a general program worked off the basic chipset, if the manufacturer did something different then it will screw a program up, the easy solution is to try a different program. The most accurate is what the BIOS reads, find a program that is as close to the BIOS as possible (you can find this by running the computer for awhile, restarting into bios, looking at the temps, and then boot immediatly into windows and see what the program reads, should be within 5 degrees)

Typically, in my experience, usually the program the motherboard manufacturer includes in its software package (they usually include one) is the most accurate, but not all the time. Speedfan is a good program, that sensor view Ive never heard of but should be worth a try if its free, just make sure you scan it with a good antivirus before downloading, another one to try is coretemp
