What do you mean by monitor? The display or the program? I assume the latter. I have two, SpeedFan and CPU-Z.
I use the stock cooler, I was hoping it would be enough since I don't overclock and don't want to install one of those giant tower coolers. Nor do I feel like uninstalling the motherboard and thus all cables again

My CPU running 10,000 degrees hotter than the 104 degrees it runs now?

You sure you know what you're talking about?

Ah, I found the solution to the noise problem. In the BIOS the cpu speed was set to full on by default, so I changed that yesterday, but even with full speed off the setting for target speed was set to the highest level 9, i.e. 89% of full on speed I changed that to the lowest level now, why would I target a fast speed when the target temp and max allowable temp are also rated anyway?!
The core and cpu temps are just 1 degree C higher now than they were before

Why do they pick such odd BIOS default settings?! I hope the fan was not damaged because of the level 9 speed operation for two days now

It seems like Bulldozer is finally trickling out (at least to server market) but the next generation Piledriver is already supposedly on hand and being shown off with alpha drivers for the Trinity series APUs, possibly Q2 2012 release.

So one might feel like buying something that will soon be outdated, anyway

I don't like how they are marketing a module as two cores. I hope the FP performance is sufficient enough to warrant it being considered two cores. Not all bulldozers will be APUs.

The only thing AMD does for me is keep Intel prices down...

Thanks AMD
