CPU temperature reading (Gigabyte GA-8IPE1000-G v4.0)

Recommended Posts

Hi all. I just registered to post a question about the CPU temperature.

 

I have this old Socket478 motherboard GA-8IPE1000-G v4.0 by Gigabyte and a 3.0GHz Northwood based Pentium 4 processor on it. I've made a test, so here is the thing:

I had a stock cooler on this processor which kept it around 40 degrees, and this temperature (+/- a degreee or soo) was reported by both AIDA64 and the BIOS. However, I've recently mounted a new Zalman cooler and BIOS now reports temperatures which are lower, barely reaching 30 degrees, which is somewhat expected since the cooler is all copper, much better and larger than the stock one. However, AIDA64 still reports temperatures around 40-45 degrees - it is as if it were fixed on those temps for this CPU model and that's it. If I restart Windows at the moment while AIDA64 reported temps like 45 degrees and immediately enter BIOS, BIOS will show current temp around 26-30 degrees. Why is this happening?

 

BIOS is Award Modular 2005, version F5.

CPU is Intel Pentium 4 (200 x 15 = 3GHz), Northwood core, nothing overclocked.

 

 

Thanks in advance for any clarifications.

Thank you, but I'm afraid that dump didn't include any information for your onboard sensor chip.  Are you sure everything was okay with AIDA64 when you made the dump?  Or maybe you've stripped some parts of the dump output?

No, I have used the "Copy to Clipboard" button. I have only omitted the first two lines about AIDA64 version and the operating system. Everything else was inserted here.

 

If this is of any help, in the Sensor window, AIDA64 says this:

Sensor Type: SMSC LPC47M192/997  (SMBus 2Dh)

Ah, yes, my bad, it's an SMBus based sensor :)  Then please right-click on the bottom status bar of AIDA64 main window --> Sensor Debug --> SMBus Dump (Full).  Copy-paste the full results here.

 

 

Thanks,

One more test done today. AIDA64 showed 47°C while the PC was at idle for some time. I then decided to restart the computer and to immediately enter BIOS to see its temperature readings. It showed that CPU temp was around 28-30°C only. This is a huge, like 15°C difference. I opened up the casing and the cooler was barely warm to the touch. So BIOS's reading somehow makes more sence than AIDA's. If the CPU temperature had risen really over 45°C, that would have made the heatsink more hot to the touch, wouldn't you agree?  B)

Thank you for the data. I agree with your observation, however, we've checked, and everything seems to be alright with how AIDA64 handles your sensor chip.  Please check both Motherboard and CPU temperatures before restarting your PC, then go straight to the BIOS Setup, and check those temperatures there.  Let me know if there's any match between those.  Please also let me know how many temperature readings you can see in the BIOS Setup.  Maybe your motherboard only measures a single temperature, but it's labelled "CPU" in the BIOS Setup and "Motherboard" in AIDA64?

Thanks for the reply/suggestion, and sorry for the delay from my part.

OK, here it is:

 
At this moment, the ambient temperature in the room is around 20°C.
AIDA64 reports the CPU temp to be 42°C, and Motherboard temp to be 34°C.
 
I have just restarted the PC and entered BIOS. It shows that the CPU temp is only 28°C (which sounds somehow very likely, because of the Northwood core and a very large all-copper Zalman heatsink with a 92mm fan on it at full speed).
 
BIOS reports only CPU temp reading.
AIDA64, however, shows temp readings for Motherboard, CPU, GPU and the hard drive.

Thank you.  The only idea we've left with is that maybe the BIOS Setup uses an offset on the temperature reading to compensate a weak temperature diode.  But the only way to verify that theory would be for you to install Gigabyte EasyTune application (that comes with your motherboard), and check temperatures both at idle and under heavy load, while having the AIDA64 Sensor page and EasyTune temperature monitoring page open side-by-side.  If you could do that, then please let us know about your findings.

EasyTune shows CPU temp to be 31°C, while AIDA64 says it is 48°C at the same time.

 

This was taken when the computer was not under load (only these two applications and Google Chrome were opened at the time). The ET reading matches that of BIOS's, and is very logical since the heatsink is barely mildly warm to the touch (in other words, it is too "cold" for a 48°C temperature).

Please try to apply an offset of -17 Celsius on the CPU temperature in AIDA64 / main menu / File / Preferences / Hardware Monitoring / Correction.

Done. Now AIDA64 also reports what BIOS and ET report.

 

 

Now that you have mentioned a "BIOS Offset", I remembered something. When I downloaded the BIOS update for this board from Gigabyte's website, it was version F5. However, I remember that in one of the previous BIOS version descriptions there was something about like "Adjust CPU temperature measurement accuracy for Prescott CPU". Although my CPU is not a Prescott one, could it actually be that the BIOS itself has a "patch" for CPU temp reading in order to display the correct temp and is now doing it for both cores, since SMSC sensor chip might do it wrongly (causing AIDA64 do display these wrong readings)?

It's possible, yes.  Some Gigabyte motherboards use such offsets for voltages and temperatures, so it's not a very unique feature.  Sadly, such quirks are usually not easy to have automatically applied in 3rd party software like AIDA64, so you have to find out the offset and use the Correction feature of AIDA64.

Well, thanks for the help so far. It actually makes sense if Gigabyte did put this offset, because the CPU's heatsink physically gets barely warm and is not even close to temperatures over 40°C. Maybe they figured that the SMSC chip sends too high a reading and therefore flashed the BIOS with this patch to "correct" the problem.

Prescott cores run very hot even at idle, I can't imagine what the sensor chip would send to AIDA64 (probably something over 60°C, which is not very nice to see).
