It has worked perfectly since I switched to a Crossblade Ranger.

In my case CPU 0 = 70degC - thermal margin.
^ This.

Anyone using asus mainboard who could install AOD ?
Runs fine on A88X-Pro.

Yup. I had a look at Core Temp after I bypassed Chrome's warning. When I saw all the nasty adware and spyware I said nope, not touching that. Apparently the creators of Core temp decided to generate some income by agreeing to bundle those extra programs. Years ago it was one of the go to options, but HWin is just as good or better.

Well, I just got an email from AMD. A new 860K is on its way back! Does anyone have a good comparison of this chip with something like a Q6600 for gaming?

One of my best friends is going through a rough time and his machine just gave up the ghost, I think its a Q8300? Whatever the 2.4ghz one is, he has no overclock. I was thinking about putting together something for him with the 860K or the 7700K presuming it would be a significant improvement.

hmm, I downloaded and installed to compare it's readings. Didn't notice any tiny boxes to uncheck. Did not add any visible programs to my installed list, and a malwarebytes scan came back clean.

But either way HWinfo seems to be as close to AOD readings as coretemp, still off 2-4 degrees though.

I think it's safe to say it would be a significant improvement, single and multi thread

You know you can just click on "other downloads" and download the 32 or 64bit zip files right? That way you don't have to put up with the infested installer lol.

Hey guys, so I was checking Hwinfo a bit and this is the lowest temp I got from core 0, well kinda weird temp anyway, too low. I have to perform stress tests now and check.

It's not a real temp. It's thermal margin but reversed. Where AMD Overdrive would show you temperatures starting from 70 (coolest) and then go downwards (hottest), HwInfo shows you a low temp (coolest) to high temp (hottest). To convert that number to thermal margin, just subtract it from 70.

For example, your current is 16.6. The calculation is 70 - 16.6 = 53.4.

Under load, you don't want this reading under 20. On HwInfo, it'll read as 50. You could go a little bit past that and it'll still be safe. Some people take it all the way to the edge at 10 thermal margin (60 hwinfo). I personally wouldn't do it though.

edit:
That's pretty hot for an idle reading. I think your LLC settings are making it hotter than it needs to be. On mine, LLC doesn't need to be changed until 4.2ghz. Try it on auto and get readings then.

Hey thanks for your answer! Yeah that was at idle, my LLC is set as medium (60% for my mobo). So should I set auto? or just normal (0%)? Since my overclock is not so high, didn't want to risk it till I solve my temps problem.

Edit: also after I set my LLC will perform full load tests.
