    The Asus probes are known to be a bit wawrad; however try updating your BIOS & see if that sorts it out.

    40F is FAAARRRR too low to even take seriously.. unless you meant 40C in whcih case believe that one. Believe that one anyway.

    I havent had any experience with overclocking and reading the temps, but I would go with the hottest setting and try to get it lower.

    if the probe is almost touching the side of the core then beleive that.

    I have the A7V with a Duron 600 o/c'd to 757mhz (100x7.5) at 1.66volts. I have a stock heatsink/fan, an Enlight tower (front fan and ps fan) and a small blower above my Voodoo3 (with a stealth cooler) to suck its heat out. I let the thermal pad on, and put a speck of thermal paste on for good measure.
    The Asus software cooler heats up the system.

    At idle (no software cooling), Asus probe says 34C.
    At full load (setiathome), it says 50C.
    The motherboard is always about 29C.
    The air temperature is always about 74F (like 25C?).
    With the cover off, temperatures climb by about 3C at full load...
    And the computer as stable as any computer I have ever owned.

    The system is more stable at 757 & 1.66 than it was at 600 and 1.5 (or whatever the motherboard had it set at).

    I love this Duron chip so much I could scream...its too bad AMD makes me dislike them by continuing to sell the k6 series...

    I posted sisoft benchmarks pictures on my website, I will add 3dmark (or is it 3dmax?) and the asus temps within a day or two. http://www.angelfire.com/pa/socling/compstats.html
