New AMD T-Bird Problems

Hello Experts:

I purchased a AMD 900mhz T-Bird yesterday and built the machine last night.  After a fresh install on Win98 SE, I was getting some strange results, such as registry problems, etc.  I checked the temperature of the cpu in the bios and it was running between 81 - 85 F, and the case temperature was 71 F.  This was after having the machine on for 30 + minutes.

Im thinking that I may have the voltages set incorrectly on the mainboard, as I have seen this happen in the pass, but don't know the voltage settings (I currently have it set to auto-detect).

Question is, what is the CPU voltage setting and the Vcore voltage setting for the AMD 900mhz T-Bird?

Thanks

Eric

Hi,

Here is a link to the AMD website, explaining those things:

Good luck,

Pete

81-85 F is pretty low.  81-85 C is meltdown; are you sure it's F?  If it is, then your temperature readings are all excellent and not the source of your problems.

ya, I have pretty good ventilation in the case..two case fans, cpu fan, and power supply fan.

After I buttoned the case up, cpu temp ranges from 95 - 100 F.  Case temp is steady at 80 F.

What makes you think there is a problem?
Your temps are very good, it sounds like you have good cooling system.

I am running a T-bird 900 and my Vcore is 1.81 according to the hardware monitor
CPU temp is 96f       rarely goes above 105f    
System temp is 93f

The registry errors may be caused by your memory timing...are you using PC133 or DDR RAM?  Is the system overclocked at all?  What make/model is the motherboard?  Did you install the VIA drivers (4in14xx.exe, should be on the drivers CD w/ the mobo).

Well, Pete answered my question, but didn't solve my problem.  Turned out that the 256Meg Dimm I had was bad.  I replaced and have had no problems.  

I appreciate everyones input on this.
