Problem with CPU core temp sensor

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, I have recently installed an Antec 620 cpu cooler to be able to overclock my Core 2 duo e8500. But after the install one of the core temps always show 36C, sometimes it goes to 37C and then back down to 36C again. The other core temp works just like normal and idles at ~25C, even when i run prime95 it still shows 36C. You guys have any idea whats wrong?Do you thinks it's maybe a Broken sensor or some kind of software problems?

Try downloading Real temp 3.67 it's one of the best software programs out there. One thing to remember is that a software based temperature monitor is not always accurate and can be off by +/-5c. Also closed loop systems usually run warmer at idle and cool better when under load than some air coolers, for example my h60 idled at 33c with my 2500k @ 4.4ghz.

Okej thanks, But the thing is that don't think it's a problem with the "real" temp of the cpu. The problem is that one of the cores just show 36C all the time, both in idle and under load. Here's a screenshot to show what i mean.
(Load: Prime95 has been running for 15 minutes)

Just looks like one sensor gets stuck at anything under 36c (as it moved up to 38c and was showing 37c under load (the same as the other core))

So I can't see a real problem as it will increase when your temps are over 36c (really we only want our load temps to check it's safe)

Tried disconnecting the fan for the cooler to get the temp to raise more when i ran prime95, Then the core went up to 43, so i thinks it's just as aramil said.
Thanks for all the replies!
