Confused about Phenom II X6 1055T Temps

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Well, Im kinda sure this is kinda common but I had this rig for about 6 months or so, and It was about time I upgraded to a better cooler than the stock cooler.

I finally got a CoolerMaster V6GT from which I heard tons of good things and I saw tons of them working with i7's without any problem (And as we know, these are way hot compared to these Phenoms).

Now, the thing is that Im confused A LOT about CPU Temps.



For example, using HWMonitor, I have two cpu temperatures:
Which one should I take as the "real" cpu temp? The core or the...That's the socket temp? If it is, should I take that one as the "real" one?

Im OC'ing a little (to 3.34ghz) with less Vcore (set in the bios to 1.38 actually ) than it shows there too. I just dont know what to trust

Also, I have been playing some Shift 2 Unleashed without the temps going past 24ºC (at least that's what HwMonitor said on each core). I suppose that's alright, if its correct

Core is the one you really want to watch but if any start going way out of hand you want to back off. Core is good up till ~58c on that chip

So that means that what really matters are the Core Temps? I was unsure because these were so low

Also, what about the wrong Vcore? Im sure I set that one to 1.38v on the BIOS.

Thank you for your response

On amd rigs you need the cpu temp, core temps are usually 10c below that, keep the cpu temp under 62c and your fine

The core temperatures are usually 7C-15C off, so you have to watch the CPU temperature, which is actually the Socket temperature. Just make sure that one stays under 62C and you're fine. Or you can always just add 10C-15C to core temperatures, like I do, if your socket airflow sucks.

As for monitoring voltage, use CPU-Z. It is superior to HWmonitor and shows the actual voltage, not just P-states and what is set in BIOS.

Oh that explains the low-temps.

Strangely enough, CPU-Z shows 1.416V and CoreTemp shows 1.375v (I set it to that VCore on the BIOS).

Edit: Oh wait, my bad. I had 1.400v set up on the BIOS ... I just set it to 1.38v, I hope its still as stable as it was before. Thanks for the help guys !
