i845 board problem?

The board I have is also an i845 and, I just discovered, has been flooding the system log with this same overheating message for months. I never noticed a performance hit. On pulling the side cover, I see that all fans are quietly purring away.

Still having overheating issues

Hi all,

I checked the posted messages and checked the CPU fan and the Motherboard fans, and they are both working.

The server that I am using is a DB server, and it throws the fan overheat issue when the developers run select statements that return large amounts of data.

What chipset do you have? Does your BIOS have any kind of monitoring? The fans may be working, but they may be slow/dusty...

I think kernel gets that temp straight from CPU, so it's usually right. You have to install to get the BIOS/chipset temps AFAIK. And if you're using SATA drives you could try smartctl to check hard disk temps under load.


dualcore, temperature
