Basically amd uses an algorithm to determine temp. At idle it is not accurate the more load is on the CPU the more accurate it is
(Vs an Intel which actually has thermistor in the die that give out true temp reading)
Basic rule of thumb is if core is under 40 use socket. If over use core.
**please note this is aiming you ate looking at core temp and not another figure
Ah thats what you meant. I thought you meant something else, something totally new that i did not know about. I'll put it this way. the 'CPU' temps given by the ITE chip is the Socket Temps for me. Then there is both 'CPU 0' and 'CPU 0 Package' which both seem to be Core Temps. Difference is one (CPU 0) shows a higher minimum temperature (14-18C) and no temperature spike (max 58C on 4.8GHz IBT) and the other (CPU 0 Package) shows a minimum temp of 0C and has a temp spike of 128-198C.
Seeing that CPU 0 Package has numbers that seem more false I want to believe that it is an inaccurate reading given to me compared to CPU 0. Socket temps between HWMonitor and HWInfo are identical pretty much to the min,current,max,avg. For Core temps it seems HWMonitor values seem to be a mix of CPU 0 and CPU 0 Package. Current value is the same and the minimum is similar. Most of the time when the Max temp spikes on CPU 0 Package it does too with HWMonitor but with different temperature values. I didn't notice the vast difference in some of the numbers I get between HWMonitor and HWInfo but now I am starting to see it. For example, I just set my CPU to 4GHz and began stressing it as I was writing this post. HWInfo is giving me core temps of 26C currently, 6C minimum, and 28C Max (Both CPU 0 and CPU 0 Package) but with HWMonitor almost immediately as IBT started I see a Max core temp of 64C. As I'm writing this CPU 0 Package just got a max reading of 160-224C. Thermal Margin 44C.
It's a bit confusing. 4GHz w/ 1.284v during load getting 64C let alone 160C temperature spike with an H100i push/pull with the SP120L at 2700RPM (LOUD) in a cool basement. Not sure what the problem is. Haven't updated HWMonitor or HWInfo in a while so I'll do that later tonight.Edited by xKrNMBoYx - 3/25/15 at 11:12am
