Speedfan temps

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
When using speedfan it found a couple of temp readings im not sure about. The first top 4 the cpu, temp1, temp2, and temp3 is what confuses me. Im not sure if the cpu is suppose to be the cpu I just labeled it that way and assumed it was. For the temp1, temp2, and temp3 im guessing its the motherboard temp, northbridge temp, and southbridge temp? I searched online and couldnt find anything that tells me which chip and sensor is what. Im taking a guess that the chip it8720f is the mobo temp, north temp, and south temp? I searched around and it seems the chip amd k10 is the north temp not the cpu temp or something? Can someone confirm/verify this for me? Here are the specs of my pc and a link to a picture of my speedfan thanks.

Hello from me and OCN.

In a quad core CPU there are 4 separate cores and there is a digital thermal sensor built in for safety features like auto shutdown and they are where your readings may be coming from. smile.gif I believe that software is saying "CPU" instead of "temp0" so you have 4 "temp0,temp1,temp2 and temp3"

Try Core temp (http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/)

I'd say that the first four temps are the temps of your four CPU cores. I don't like SpeedFan as it often tells me that me SSD is 120 degress and my CPU is -60 degrees. I suggest that you use another program, but you can't use RealTemp unfortunately.

I agree with MercurySteam on that! cheers.gif

ALUCARDVPR created a nice thread regarding the CPU temperatures on current AMD platforms:

AMD Temp Information and Guide

Although it won't answer all of your questions, it will help you with some of your readings if you install one of the recommended tools and compare its readings with Speedfan. My uneducated guess would be that CPU in Speedfan is for the "core temp" and Temp3 for the "CPU temp" but I could be wrong.

Good idea!

The SSD temperature glitch likely isn't Speedfan's fault. Many SSDs don't have actual temperature sensor installed even though the firmware would support it (which usually causes the temperature to be stuck in 128C). My OCZ Agility 3 doesn't have a sensor and it seems your Vertex 3 and mr g143's Force 3 don't have one either.

Here's one thread on the subject on OCZ forums: Temperature fix for Vertex3 / Agility3 / Solid3
