    BIOS  0152 on DH87MC

    aybracers

      Hi Team,

       

      Small problem relating to updating BIOS on DH87MC to version 0152.

       

      Since update I am getting warnings about Memory temperature exceeding its maximum recommended temperatue and showning a temp of 79 degrees C.

       

      This is causing the CPU fan to increase its speed and is making the system noisy. No other changes to system and I am using approved memory.

       

      This problem did not exist in BIOS 0147.

       

      When I touch the simms they are cold - surely if they were 79 degrees as desktop utilities monitor suggests I would burn my fingers or at least feel some heat.

       

      In the 0152 BIOS readme there is the following "fix" listed:-

       

      Fixed issue in Intel® Desktop Utilities with inaccurate VR and
      memory temperature readings.

      Does this mean that I have had memory temperatures too high for a long time and now the new BIOS recognises the fact or is the new BIOS giving false readings?

       

      Any advise greatfully received - I've worked hard to build a silent PC and it's no longer silent.
