    I have an A64 Venice 3000+ clocked @ 2.6Ghz, it is fitted with an XP-120 and 120mm 1500rpm fan. MB is Asus A8N-E

    With case open and ambient temp @ 23C the CPU temp is 33C @ Idle.

    My m8 has a 3500+ venice @ 2.6Ghz, with stock cooler on an A8V and case closed and ambient @ 21C his CPU temp is like 22C.

    Why is mine so high? Is it my friends mobo reporting wrong temp? or is it mine reporting wrong temp? or something else?

    The temps hes got must be wrong.
    My CPU in my sig sits at about 30, now its hot, and loads at 40.
    Thats with 1.475volts.
    Yours are low as it is, I wouldnt worry.

    Temperature misread. With an ambient temperature of 21*c I can't see how an overclocked a64 on the stock cooler will be a mear 23*c...

    My A64 3000 @ 2.7Ghz is at about 36*c idle, 45*c full load an on akasa evo 120.

    just read a review here :-


    says venice sits @ 22C Idle... @ 2.582ghz

    The trouble is with people reporting temps, nobody ever seems to give ambient temp of room their PC is in, which has a direct effect on cpu temp ;/ Or they forget to say its been overclocked, or that it has a special cooler, or fan, or core voltage ;) lot of variables, someone should make a Temp Reporting template ;)

    like this:-

    CPU = A64 Venice
    Clock = 2.6Ghz
    Core V = 1.6v
    Heatsink = XP-120
    Fan = 120mm @ 1500rpm
    Motherboard = Asus A8N-E bios 1008
    Case = open
    Ambient = 24C
    CPUtemp Idle = 34C

    oh it didnt come out right ;/

    1st, you don't have the same setup down to PC case, room design & where you keep PC (down/ground/floor, top/on table/stand, near window/door, etc), right??? Also A8V readings were known to be 10°C off if not more. All-in-all your worries are trivial. These chips can handle 65°C~70°C
