AMD FX-8320 temperatures.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So, I tried to find out the temperature of my CPU, and on almost every product out there told me it was around 15~20C, but MSI CONTROL CENTER said it was about 31c. Which one is right?

15-20c... 59-68f.. That's below room temperature for most of us. 31c is 82f wink.gif If we add 22c (71.6f) to your 15-20c figures we get 37-42c = 98.6-107.6f. Still not very hot.

FX-8320 should be safe below 60-65c = 140-149f

omg, i love you lol!
Now I under stand why my temps are 15-20c... So it subtracts room temps!?? Thats awesome:thumb:

No it doesn't subtract room temp. AMD idle temp is notoriously inaccurate usually reading low. Load temperature is what is important.

Even my i7 980 shows a couple of cores at or below room temp... and it's impossible to be cooler than surrounding temperature. smile.gif

Yeah also remember core temp readings tend to be 10-15C below actual temps (read by motherboard)
that would explain how it is lower than ambient, but the max temps, 60-65 area referencing core temps.
and the lower the temps, the less accurate the readings.

22c (71.6f) is my room temp during the day At night it's 20c. I have no idea what your room temp is.
