Default Re: AMD Core Temps

I'm idling at about 28-30 'C on each core, and I'm fully loaded up at 54/49'C using orthos.

Aren't Opteron processors able to take more heat than the regular X2's?

Anyway....I'd consider anything under 60'C for an opteron to be ok. The biggest thing to remember about coretemp...while it does provide seemingly more accurate readings, that the internal diode it references is not "officially" factory calibrated by AMD and they offer absolutely no support for it's usage.

The temp sensor from your mobo is usually accessed using a S I/O chip and is usually taken from the socket just below the die of the processor.

hope this helps,
