Idle temps - Page 2

post #11 of 12
This is most likely happening because these sensors were never intended to be used for reporting 100% accurate core temperatures, especially when the CPU is idle and the temperatures are a long ways away from the calibration point. These sensors are only intended to be used for thermal throttling and thermal shut down control of the CPU.

I found when testing that if you enabled both the CPU low power C States for the core and CPU package, the idle temps tend to line up a lot better. You can try enabling both of those in the bios just to see if your reported idle temperatures change.

Can't get much more consistent than this.

I think you're right I am using the IGPU at the moment and mine is the same!!! (Around 8c between 1st and 4th....)
