How Should I Read My Temps?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Okay guys, so I read somewhere that the FX lineup in general have bad temperature readings, because they actually don't use thermometers, but instead use some type of equation to read it. Now, in Corshair link, I have the FX-8350 package temp, and then my coolers temp (H80i GT)
Should I go off the package temp or the H80i GT Temps?

The best program for measuring temperatures is AMD Overdrive as it's the most accurate.

 

The maximum temperature for the BD uArch is 70C core and socket but this is hard for the CPU to measure when idle, which is why CPU's will often idle below ambient temperature. Under load, however, the equation is accurate.

Relatively accurate. One of my CPU cores on my old A8-7600 always read 1-5C under load or not.
