Temps is HW Monitor

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok so I just got an FX-8320 to replace my Phenom 2. Now I ran HW monitor 1.23 and i got this.

Now I am running a raystorm water cooled system with a 280 rad. But I just want to ask. My Phenom 2 used to display core temps, but this just shows a package temp. Where did the core temp values go?

Also HW Monitor is showing a different temp to Control Center which with my experience with my phenom 2 shows the processor package temp.

Control center will show your socket temp rather than CPU temp - nothing to worry about.

my friends 8350 displays the same information in HWMoniter as yours does so I would presume this normal, and something that the developers should be working around, it could be to do with the architecture of the CPU, I'm not sure.

Ok its just that I was really confused. Because my Phenom 2 used to show readings for each of the 4 cores. It also fluctuates... A lot. So I am not sure if I should take it seriously. I presume then that HW Monitor is showing the core temp and Control Control center as you say is showing the socket or Tcase temp...

HWMonitor will be showing your CPU temp rather than your CORE temp, this being known as PACKAGE.

My guess this s the temp of the actual die rather than the cores.

I prefer the way Phenom II's show each core, but its not really that useful because the cores are never more than 1C away from each other whereas Intel CPUs have higher temp differences.

Try comparing different software to read your temp such as CoreTemp etc if you feel you don't trust HWMonitor

So my main question now is simple. With my Phenom it was easy to figure out temps. As max core temp was 62C and HW Monitor displayed core temps. Now with the FX the max core temp is 62C as well. So I am going to take HW monitor's package temp as the temperature I am going to use for reference when overclocking?? Cause I am going to overclock this puppy and I just want to stay on the correct side of the thermal barrier.

My advice is keep the package temp under 65C. Also use other software such as CoreTemp as references.
