Why is OCCT reporting such high temperatures at stock voltage on FX-8320?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Any idea why I'm getting such high temperature reports? Speccy shows 51 Celsius, which still seems unnaturally high?

It's possible it is reading socket temps ,not core temps.

Download coretemp and see if the values match.

You're totally right, it's reporting the wrong temps. Core Temp is reporting a more normal 47 Celsius.

Thanks!
