Phil:if the problem persist (i think that's the verb) i will try your advise

the cpu temp is allways 80-85 and when i play game it falls at 60 :confused: the temp which goes to 70-80 in game is core 0 which i believe is the correct temp

Ok, your temps are most likely dropping when gaming because the fans are kicking in.
Earlier I suggested Open Speedfan, untick the Automatic detection box and manually increase all fan speeds to 100, let us know if the temps drop but you said nothing happened, what did you do? did you untick the Auto detect and increase the fan speeds manually?

happyrock please see posts #3 and #5 :thumbsup:

SORRY i DID NOT SEE THOSE POSTS...
but speedfan does a bad job with the newer components and everest does even worse...

note the differences between speedfan and asus AI...
speedfan says I only have 6.6 V on the 12V rail but the software that comes with the mobo says its 12.096
and I am going with the ASUS reading over speedfans...
IMHO in this case it may be necessary to use his bios readings to get a clearer picture of bios temps and voltage

phil: yes i put all of them 100% even though i can control only the cpu fan the others are working on their own...but in game the core 0 went to 70-80 again.....the cpu and aux temp are 80-90 from when i start the pc when all others and core 0 are 25-30...(i am allways talking for the speedfan temp which as you can see there is a seperate cpu and core 0 temp)(core 0 must be the real cpu)

Happy: i will try that as soon as i get back my pc but i think that the temps that speedfan shows are (if not 100% correct) 60% correct cause when it says core 0 is hot i can feel it by touching the case at the place where is cpu....How will i check the temps after playing a game...i ask cause i have gone into bios in 10 years 3-4 times
