Mobo says CPU temps way higher than what Speedfan or CPU-Z say

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I am using the MSI Z68MA-ED55 (B3) LGA 1155 motherboard for reference.

My mobo reads my CPU temp at 59-62
Speedfan has the cores around 32-35 idle
CoreTemp has the cores around 38-42 idle.

Should I be worried or are the mobo temps just way off?

Thanks

Then wouldn't the other temp readings be much higher?

I assume you're going off of the temperature in BIOS? Those temperatures are almost always going to be higher as the processor is running at a higher load than when idle in windows. As long as it's not reading some absurd temperature such as 115c, you should be fine.

Bios is not idle and CPU numbers are usually higher than idle in Windows. The temp you see in Bios under CPU temp is not the same as the CPU temp in Real Temp.

If your Bios tells you the CPU Core Temp, then it should be closer or the same as idle in Windows. Some motherboard Bios will tell you the CPU Core Temp, others will not.

Hope that helps.
