Accuracy of ASUS Probe

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Moments ago, while eagerly buying up a Ninja HSF, fans and ramsinks, the ASUS Probe popped up with an temp warning. Nothing on my system is currently OCed (got the v/c at stock speeds as I don't need it high web surfing). In a state of TERROR, I quickly powered off the rig....fastest way to clear a shopping cart too!

Ten minutes later, I rebooted into BIOS and read the on die temps for 5 minutes. Everything -- temp and voltages -- were normal and rock solid. Without Windows thermal optimization, the proc temps reached 96F/84F.

Rebooted into Windows, and it read 80F/80F. An hour later, it's reading 86F/86F. Hmmmm....

Now I was running the window AC as I'm a hot bloodied individual, but it didn't feel very chilly when the popup occurred. Never seen the 120mm fan go below 600rpm either, since this is a hot room to begin with (thanks to a toasty CRT monitor).

Hardware is at stock speeds, voltages don't fluc beyond .3+/- tolerances.

Could it be that the ASUS Probe isn't that accurate? I know there's a temp probe issue with the P4P800 motherboard, but how can ambient temps get so low to trigger a warning, when the room feels like an oven?

Thoughts?

Asus Probe is coded correctly for Asus motherboards so it should be one if not the most accurate program for you. However compare the temps between Asus probe and MBM5 or speedfan
