Different temps on different programs.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a FX-4350 with an enermax ETS-T40F air cooler. On AMD overdrive my CPU temp jumps around between 50 and 60c at idle, and on MSI afterburner it says anywhere from 8 to 15c idle. Another one says like 3c idle. Just wondering if there's a better, more accurate way to measure temps?
Thanks

AMD FX Temperature Sensors are random and inaccurate if the CPU isnt under load - Often entering negative temperatures and impossible temperatures specially on air cooling - Ignore every reading at idle, it doesn't matter and is wrong.

However, their temperature sensor excels when under load, it is extremely accurate at depicting each cores temperatures when the CPU is loaded.

In AOD, temps are shown as margin so it does correspond to what Afterburner shows.
