Zotac IONITX A-U overclocked - temp reads are wacked out

Post by graysky » Sun Jun 06, 2010 7:44 am

If I run my Zotac IONITX A-U (Atom 330 based all-in-one) at the stock settings (1.60 GHz) the temp monitor in the BIOS reads 34 for the MB and 41 for the CPU at idle. If I overclock the board (fsb up to 667 from 533) the temp monitor in the BIOS reads 34 for th MB and 14 for the CPU at idle. If I boot into Linux the temps are messed up as well (sensors using coretemp and lm90 modules):

Stock (12x266)
coretemps-idle: 21/23
cpu temp-idle: 30
coretemps-load: 32/32
cpu temp-load:53

Overclocked (12x333)
coretemps-idle: -3/6
cpu temp-idle: 42
coretemps-load: 16/23
cpu temp-load:56

Can anyone else with this board comment? Do you see really odd temps when overclocking?

Yep. It's still reporting northbridge temps fine, though, so I just look at that and add 10C to the northbridge temp to approximate core temps.
