ATI sapphire radeon 9550se temp sensor issue
Posted 30 March 2007 - 05:40 PM
I've been having some issues with my system seemingly randomly crashing/re-starting. Intitally I thought my CPU might be overheating, but both the BIOS and Speedfan seem to show it's not. SpeedFan however, does show an anonymous 'temp 3' hitting 70 deg C. Does the GPU have a temp sensor on it, and would my BIOS recognise it as overheating and shut the system down?

Would the bios shut down if the northbridge was overheating?

This will then tell us if it related to the graphics card or not.
Another thing to note is that most passive coolers have thermal tape instead of a nice thin layer of thermal transfer compound. It's possible that this tape is not working so good and hence the reason that sensor is reading high.
Could also mean the the sensor is not relaying the correct information back too, hard to say until you can determine what the sensor is supposed to be reading

I would suggest sending this information to ASrock and see if the motherboard sensor/sensors are properly supported by the app.
