128 degrees Celsius reading on my cpu by speed fan?? is this right?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi, i built this computer 2 weeks ago and have been running games on it fine and used intel software to see how the cpu was doing temperature wise until just now. I decided to download speedfan and it is telling me my cpu is at 128 degrees celsius?!?! If that was true, im pretty sure it would have been blown by now.

Does anyone know whats going on?

My system specs are as follows:

4770k @ 3.5ghz
h80i liquid cpu cooler
gtx 780evga
750tx corsair psu
msi gd65 gaming mobo
128ssd
2tbhdd
....

pretty sure thats all the info you need.

Intel program is saying its running at 31 celsius on idle. and the cores are saying 15-31 degrees celsius on speed fan, except the CPU. it says 128 celsius O.o

is this some sort of bug? any help appreciated. thanks.

heres an image of the programs running at the same time, displaying the difference in temps by program.

Could be a Fahrenheit reading.

Ya, it's a bug. Speedfan's probably reading the wrong sensor.

Use HWINFO instead

Instead of trying to show you the right sensor, it basically shows you every sensor it can find in your system.

Don't worry about anything called CPU temp, they are never the right temps. Use HWInfo, HWMonitor, or RealTemp and monitor the individual core temps.

It's just a sensor reading 0b10000000

If you are running under load with OC you need to delid your chip forma lowering temps

While true, if the core/Tj was really 128, THERMTRIP# would have been asserted and the pc lock up.
