I'm having some interesting problems, too.  I suspect I've now gotto get 
AMD involved but the system manufacturer and VAR have spent weeks 
looking at this and had no success I can tell so far.

I have no good way save when I boot into the BIOS and see what appears 
to be normal-looking values on the sensors page.
