When I go into setup at startup, and into the hardware monitor. I have these values...

CPU0 Temp: 79 C
CPU0 Fan Speed: 1704 RPM
CPU0 Vcore: 0V

CPU1 Temp 80 C
CPU1 Fan Speed: 1704 RPM
CPU2 Vcore: 1.6520 V

Why is the CPU0 Vcore at 0 volts ??
what does that mean, and what should I do about it...

Not sure if it matters, but here's some info.
I have 1GB ram.
dual AMD MP 2.4 GHz processors
running Windows 2000 SP4

i can provide any additional info if needed.

Any ideas for me?

Thanks

The Vcore would never be at 0 volts, your PC wouldn't run. It's most likely that your motherboard sensor for the processor's Vcore isn't working properly.

Yeah its probably an error, a bios update might fix it, those temps are very high though even if the system was in high load that would be high are you getting any crashes under heavy use?

I AM getting random crashes under heavy use...

what are "normal" cpu temps ?

i guess it's time to revamp the cooling system somehow...
I have 4 fans in there right now.

any suggestions for me?

Normal temps for me are 33c idle, 42c load, with 20c ambient, I'm running a single exhaust fan on the stock HSF on my AMD Athlon 3700+. I have it overclocked to 2.53GHz (stock 2.2), so my normals are a bit lower (I think on stock I was getting 28c idle, 33c load).

If yours are so high, you might look into a XP-120 - you'll notice a large temperature drop with one of those.

First things first though, grab a can of air, and clean that sucker up!

Normal temps, idle between 30-45 load 45-55 60 is what i usually consider an absolute max temperature.

What you need is more or larger fans and to get a good aftermarket HSFs for the CPUs, two cpus are a lot of heat so you need very good cooling both on the HSF and the case.
