temps way to high for comfort on this thing

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I just got my system up and running today with :

FX-8150
ASUS Crosshair V Formula MB.
Cooler XIGMATEK Aegir SD128264 Mega Killer Double HDT 120mm Long Life Bearing CPU Cooler

Now this issue I'm having is:

Ambient room temps is around 23-26c


Core Temp shows these temps:
MB temp: unknown
CPU idle: 40c
CPU 100% load: 63c

ASUS AI Suite shows:

MB temp idle: 30c idle
CPU temp idle: 32c
MB 100% load: 30c
CPU 100% load: 46c

I'm honestly not sure which of these to trust.
however, if the core temp one is right then there is a problem somewhere as I have checked and rechecked thermal paste
and cooler seating on the processor. Both, are as they should be so that leaves me asking this?

Does anyone know which of these is correct? and if its core temp any ideas whats wrong.

AI Suite is really inaccurate for the most part, it doesn't even work for some people and shows negative temperatures. Core Temp readings really don't seem too bad, load either. Depending on what TIM you used, there may be a cure time.

AFAIK AS5 has a cure time of approximately 200 hours.

aye im not totally sure of cure times but I also just realized I had an offset of 28 degrees set in core temp oops.
was from an old proccesor I took it out and compared the 2 readings core temp was 12 and ai suite was 31 so i set my offsets in core temp to 19
now we will see how it goes I wish i could find a way to get a really accurate measure.

use hwmonitor and look at the "cpu" tab

or "temp1"

AS 5 only drops about 1C after the 200 hour cure time so it's insignificant. "AI" should read the same as the BIOS which should match Core Temp - which is usually accurate IME. 32C/46C would be perfectly fine with room to spare.

Aye I figured that was just wondering which of the 2 was right and since I changed the offset in core temp i feel better but im gonna check
bios just to make sure.
also i think im gonna pick up a new tube of paste cause im not sure of the shelf life of some of this stuff and i know my as5 is 3 or so years old.

well i used hwmonitor and it shows 31c at idle so im inclined to think that is where it should be

Core Temp once read my clocks at 74ghz. On my 3400APU Try checking the bios, or download other programs. I think its with APU's only thou.

I would trust ASUS AI Suite more then Core Temp. With APU's that is.
