Sandy Bridge Temps

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Wanted to get some opinions on temps here for a second. Many folks agree that the Bios is usually the most accurate cpu temp, but if the Bios is 5-10c cooler then software programs and the software programs are all saying the same thing, which one should I go by?

Here is a screenshot at 100% cpu load and notice Real Temp and Core Temp show identical temps, while my temp reading from my Bios show much lower. Also what is the difference between VCORE and VID? In my Bios my VCORE is running at 1.32v on the temp software my VID is 1.365v.

Edit: My first Intel setup in over 6 years is why I ask this stuff. I pretty much had AMD stuff figured out like the back of my hand.

Go with realtemp, bios usually isn't very accurate, mine always reads between 45-55 degrees celcius on boot, and vcore is what you set your voltage at, think of VID as the stock voltage for each the chip, it's what the chip tells the motherboard basically what to set it as when it boots

If i'm not mistaken, VID is your CPU's TARGET VOLTAGE. Vcore is the ACTUAL VOLTAGE. Example: During OCing, let's say my VID is 1.35v, but I would like to try to run my CPU at 1.325v to see if it's actually stable. I'd set my offset voltage to -.025v, which will be my VID minus 0.025v, which would equal about 1.325 volts. I'm sure there's a much more in depth explaination, but that's what I've got.

Edit: And FYI my AI suite temps are usually a bit lower than my real temps. Regardless, I generally go by the higher temps between the two to be safe (which is realtemp).
