If "Core Temps" were to intended to be the "gauge" if the CPU is reaching that max temp then how would it account for OC'ing the CPU/NB or IGP if the CPU has one?
I wouldn't know how it would, or may account for such things as oc of cpu/nb, and the igp (concerns apu's only) All i'm pointing out is that amd's own software points you to look at this (core temps) and not this (tcase) It is curious, no? To be clear yes, overdrive does list tcase, but not in the cpu monitoring tab, it's actually hard to find if your not looking for it.
Why would they use that for their own OVERCLOCKING software if it wasn't worth a flying .... for overclocking temperatures?
Why would Alucardvpr say "AMD recommends the Core Temp program and AMD Overdrive for this reason.
The core section of HWMonitor also reads this value, but be careful as it also shows CPU Temp" in his guide if it was not true?
I'd also like to point out he very kindly listed sources for this information, you have not listed as of yet any for yours. So why should i be inclined to believe what your saying, over what he posted?
