Athlon II X4 temperature question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ever since i upgraded to the X4 640 i can't help but wonder if the temperature readings are actually accurate.Usually it runs on High Performance with the Blade Master set to automatic (doesn't go above 650rpm under load) and i get 22-25 in idle and 35-36 under load (which is real good)

I've activated the Power Saver plan and set the Blade Master to its full 2000rpm in the screenshot below and this is what i get. Room temperature is about 21.5C

Under load it doesn't go above 30-31C which is better than good, but i still have to wonder sometimes that my CPU is being cooled below room temperature smile.gif

Possible reading error?

It isn't possible to cool under ambient temp unless using Dice or a chiller etc. try using coretemp or realtemp to read the temps.

Forgot to mention i also had CoreTemp running in the background (compared to HWMonitor it's been running 24/7, same as my PC)

But this is even weirder -.- It went all the way to 13C. And i'm sure my room temperature never went under 21C.

I've also done a touch test on the heatsink but it's not hot at all.
