Reapplying thermal paste to A10 6800k - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Thread Starter 
Well, it was a false alarm. Turns out there is no accurate temperature monitoring program for the A10 6800k yet. I found out when I installed RealTemp and an error message popped up saying unsupported CPU, which led me to research this.The only way to get an accurate reading is through the BIOS. Of course, I found this out after I bought and installed a Hyper 212 EVO, so I don't know what my temperatures were with the stock cooler. Now I'm getting about 34C constatnly in the BIOS, as opposed to various programs in Windows still saying I'm 50-60C, with spikes up to 70C.

Interesting, if I throttle my CPU speed down to 3200mhz in CCC, HWMonitor is reporting a drop of about 10-20C. I know that the reading is inaccrate, so I wonder how much of a difference in temps throttling this CPU makes (just for idle).

And yes, most software doesn't read the right temperatures. Tho AIDA Extreme should provide a proper CPU temperature. The core temperatures will fly all over the place from 0C to 100C but that's because AMD doesn't use a sensor per core like Intel does. So you cant get actual core temperatures. Tho the CPU temperature should be correct. It's paid software but comes with a 30 day free trial. Which is plenty of time for working out overclocks and temperatures.

hwmonitor works fine for me, if i get weird temperatures a cmos reset usually fixes it.
