Ques. about Core Temp vs. CPU temp

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Which one should I pay more attention to. My Core temp is 54C and CPU temp is 41C. These are in Speedfan and under dual P95 load.

Edit: Core temp just hit 55C and P95 failed immediately after that on one core (Core 0)

You should be more worried about the core temp because it is the accual core temperature.

That makes sense, but I've also read that it may be inaccurate.

The Core reading is the hottest part of the CPU (supposedly), and in the past many have said not to let the CPU get above 60C, but that was with "CPU temp" because speedfan didn't show the core temp back then. At least mine didn't....

I would think that it would be pretty accurate beacuse its inside the CPU on the core.

What is the max I should allow for my core temp reading?

Core temp? Ideally, 55C or below (60C or below if you need it to go that high). Remember, AMD have stated a maximum temperature of 65C. I wouldn't like to get too near to that.

You're getting rather high core temps for stock volts. I get 52C per core, but that's on 1.45V. Might be worth:

Reseating heatsink
Lapping heatsink and/or CPU
Removing the IHS off the CPU

Actually that's not stockvolts, I had it up to 1.45 vcore when I hit 55C core temp. Still, seemed pretty hot. I don't get it, I've Lapped the heatsink quite some time ago and had no problem OCing my 3700 @ 1.6 vcore. Temps were good @ 42C load temp (CPU temp, not Core temp).
