    Asus Sabertooth Z77 reporting ridiculous temperature

    Yo,

    My Sabertooth Z77 is reporting an absolutely ridiculous, and obviously wrong, temperature:



    On the Z77, the heatsinks are underneath the plating stuff, so I can't actually feel them directly, but NONE of the plating on the board feels even close to what I would call "hot".

    I'm assuming it must be some sort of faulty sensor or something.. If it is, would there be a problem with just ignoring it? A motherboard is a pretty horrible thing to have to RMA.

    Also, what are some good programs to check temperatures with, to make sure it's not just this terrible Asus suite that is screwing up (Seriously, almost all the bundled Asus software is horrible :P)

    Try hwmonitor.

    Probably just a bad sensor. It is unlikely to cause any issues. Another possibly solution would be to download the latest version of ai suite, might be a software issue aswell.

    Yeah, I have HWMonitor as well, it's what I use for monitoring my CPU temps, but I don't know what the motherboard ones really mean..

    Right now "TZ00" is 28, "TZ01" is 30. And sometimes a few other sensors show up on it, but they seem to sit REALLY low. Oddly enough though, I once saw one that said it's max was like 420, and it said it's current was 2.. I guess that could be the faulty sensor.

    Install the latest v1.02.29 of AI Suite II, which contains v1.01.22 of Thermal Armor.

    Pretty good.

    It's in a Corsair Obsidian 650D case:
    - Front 200mm (unobstructed, hard drive cages are moved)
    - Front 120mm (aftermarket hard drive cage in 5.25" slots)
    - 2x 120mm roof (on a 240mm radiator)
    - 120mm exhaust
    - both 35mm fans installed on the motherboard



    I've actually uninstalled the bundled Asus Suite for now. Intending to get an updated version, but I haven't gotten around to it yet :P

    Looks like good case cooling. Would that plastic covering over the motherboard hold in the heat?

    Its just a bad sensor, dont worry about it. I have seen this before specifically with a temp of 127c.

    So in that case, wouldnt it be a simple RMA?

    I am currently running Thermal Radar v1.01.22 and am getting the same reading off the motherboard from the same sensor. But it only happened when I rendered a video file. All my other temps went up, but are still in normal range. This sensor also happens to be close to to the USB/OI case switches. Also, I have a fan blowing right on it and still getting the 127 reading.

    Has anyone contacted Asus for an RMA to see what the problem is? Mine is brand new (had is less than 30 days so I could just return it for a new one), but I want to know if it's just a flaw in the production so all models are this way, or just a few flukes. Any thoughts?
