Wrong Temperatures On UnleashX?

Recommended Posts

So yes guys, that is my question. Does UnleashX give wrong temperature readings?


My Xbox is 1.6 made in 2005. Here is the thing, I always get 51C degrees on idle and about 57 when playing games according to UnleashX. I don't think those are bad temps, but according to the INTERNET those are a bit high for the OG XBOX.

So I tested another dashboard, this time XBMC4xbox and at the same time/day/moment when UnleashX was giving me 51C on idle,  XBMC4xbox was giving me 40c on the CPU and 30C on the GPU. The lowest I have had just sitting there is 38C on CPU and 28C on GPU, now those temperatures look realistic! (I mean realistic for a computer when doing absolutely nothing).

In average I've found that UnleashX is always reading 7 degrees higher and its minimum is always 45 (minimum in other dashboard is 38c), which again, is weird because sometimes is very cold in here.

What do you guys think? What dashboard is giving the correct temps?


My best regards!

So do I it's something to do with the data that been read in a ver 1.6. even from cold boot after 1 minute it reports 45c when a noncontact thermometer shows 25c. Just go by the disk temp as a guide as it is above the 2 main chips.

My verision 1.6 which has been on for 4 days(I forgot to turn it off) and it's in a cupboard 1 shelf up from the reciver is showing  CPU 64.3c  SYS 64.0c Harddisk 39.0 the top cover temp is 24c.

So don't worry about it. All other versions report the right temps

      Hey guys, im new here so this is my first post and regretfully its a bad post.
      Being the dumb idiot I am, I accidentally flashed a 1.0-1.5 BIOS onto my 1.6b Xbox, the modchip is an aladdin from about 10 years or so, now my Xbox wont even output any video and its FRAGGING, its also not letting me open the disk tray, is my Xbox completely broke or am I able to put a new modchip in?

      I've seen several UnleashX skins show the game picture/icon next to the name of the game.  But they don't show up with any of the games i've put on the hdd.  Am I missing something in the game folder itself or a setting I need to modify in UnleashX?  Any help would be appreciated.
