Core Temp temperature monitoring..?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So I downloaded Core Temp so I could monitor my CPU temp. Never having monitored this before I don't really know what to expect. Stock fanned HAF X with an after market heatsink on my cpu ( hyper 212 (uh, can't remember if it's the evo or plus..)). While sitting idle on my desktop, the different cores oscillate between 28C and 42C. Like one second it'll say 28, the next it'll jump up to 40ish, then back. Is that how it's supposed to read?

That's a little odd, I sometimes see that right after a boot until my cores settle to 0-1% load. I personally use HWmonitor and I like it alot better than realtemp. I would recommend downloading HWmonitor and see if your cores fluctuate.

Are you also monitoring the core usage? If there is some process that is running and putting brief loads on the CPU that would be fairly normal. Temps spike fast when the core is in use.

The 212 Evo and the Plus come with different fans.

These pictures should help identify your 212:

212 Evo stock fan


212 Plus stock fan


I'm a 212+ owner.
I'm using the HWMonitor and the RealTemp. I've had used the Core Temp.
I would say all these monitors are reliable to check the cores temps.

I agreed what Vagrant Storm said before.
While sitting idle on my desktop the cores temp run most of the time about 28 C - 32 C but it's fairy common the RealTemp registers the max core temps about 40 C.

I used the "AI Suite II" that came with my z77 board to record the cpu temp for an hour of playing borderlands 2. It started at about 31C when I hit record and then launched the game, and after about 10 mins leveled out at about 42C spiking low to high at 40-44. Are those normal temps?

The Asus sensor doesn't show the core temp.
Actually the Asus sensor shows the CPU TCase temp.

The cores temps could be 10 C - 20 C higher than the CPU TCase temp while the processor is on loading.

We should look the cores temps using utilities like the RealTemp, CoreTemp and HWMonitor.

Like stated make sure your computer is completely at idle.

That is normal. Core temps will change varying on different loads. Even at idle, cores will all be at different loads depending on the demand of the OS and various applications. What you should worry about are load temps. Run Prime95 blend with 90% of your RAM used and let us know what temps you get.

Under idle, my temps will go between 35-45 at times.

What processor do you have? You gotta make sure your TjMax is set properly under CoreTemp.
