Ok this whole thing is gettin weird.
I am now on my own system. I'm running a 8150 @4.2GHz on an ASRock 970 extreme4 with the same cooler as my mate (Scythe Mugen 3 PCGH). I always had decent temperatures but now i figured this out -on stock settings!
If i use AMD OverDrive for temperatures i am laughing because it stays at 48°C, no matter what i do.
If i use HWmonitor it's on a very cool idle but over 60°C as i start Prime
If i use Core temp, which has the best reviews of these 3 apps, it's on decent temperatures (with oc too)
For my mate it's this: Aida, Asus app, HWMonitor, all show the same temperature except for Core temp.
Can it be possible Core temp is the only one program out of 4 which show the most accurate (not completely inaccurate) temps on two completely different systems?
Now, if you dont have a solution let me at least know this: Do i have the right to say this is a ******* joke because our setups are worth more than 3000 dollar, those Gunnar glasses, physX, eyefinity and racing wheels make this whole thing become real but my ****** **** motherboard cant tell me what temperature it has?
alright, i mistook core temp, it actually is the core temp and not the socket temp. So it is: Every program shows the same for socket and core except for AMD OverDrive which stucks on the socket temp.
