e6300 voltages?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey i just built my conroe rig, and all was dandy and fine until i started checking the cpu temperatures. Asus Probe II reported 28-33 idle / ~38 load and the motherboard always at around 40. (Celsius)
Then I installed RightMark CPU Utility ( which claims has Conroe support) and it reports ~56 idle / 68 Load!
I then tried Speedfan, and it reports the same Asus PC Probe II and the BIOS.
Sisoftware Sandra reports 40 at idle, while Intel TAT doesn't even work.

The room tempearture is about 30 degree, so I tend to lean towards RightMark CPU Utility's results. However, when I first installed the heatsink ( with a partly erased thermal pad) I would get 66 at idle from the BIOS. --> Does that mean the real temperature would in fact be 80-90 degrees ?
I have some Artic Ceramique on now, and fans working at max.

My case has excellent air flow : 1x120mm fan intake and 2x120mm fans exhaust.
Vcore switchest between 1.12 at idle and 1.26 at load, so is it possible that is the reason?
BTW, the CPU goest to 1.6GHz at idle.


Which readings should I trust? and is there a way to reduce the vcore?

the best way to check conroe core temps it intels TAT so far as i know, all others are currently unreliable. also, check bios temps, compare them

edit, wierd that TAT wont work, but i dont think you're the only one.. i have yet to get my e6300 but when i do. i'll let you know

Withj CoreTemp, I get around 45-47 at Idle and then with both cores at 100% the temps go to 52 degrees, then stabilyze at 45-47. Even Asus Probe II and Rightmark COU Clock Utility show the same temps as at idle...
I'm confused! I thought temps were supposed to go UP!
I am using Prime 95 on CPU testing and Super-Pi 32M calculation to get both cores at 100% usage.
How is this happening?

Has anyone tried Everest?

I get 3 different temperatures: CPU, CPU0, CPU1. CPU gives me something about 10 degrees Celsius lower than both CPU0 and CPU1. Is that normal?

I'll go home and check with CoreTemp and the Intel one to see what happens.


Edit: just found my answer:
"To expand on the difference between the CoreTemp readings and what you see with Asus Probe, there are 3 temp sensors on a Core 2 Duo CPU die: 1 thermal diode (read by the BIOS and Asus Probe) and two digital thermal sensors (read by CoreTemp), one located near each core. The core sensors are located on a much hotter part of the CPU die, which explains the discrepancy between them and the thermal sensor. While it is likely that the thermal sensor provides a somewhat accurate reading of the temperature at its location, there is great debate as to how accurate are the readings from the two digital thermal sensors. Many people believe that those temps are a tad on the high side, many do not. Myself, I have no opinion. I judge my situation by taking into account all 3 temps. Imo, keep the core temps below 70C and you'll be just fine."

so what did you find with CoreTemp? I will download Everest too and tell you what I find.
