So are those real temperatures or just random spikes of the sensor value?

I'd like to know if my CPU is actually running those chaotic patterns of temps or if it maybe just idles at 42°C or even lower / higher and the software just shows these fluctuations.
If I let it sit it randomly comes down to 41°C, right now it is stable at that. But still there's random spikes. And the fun part is: I turn up the fans to try and cool it down even more and the temps just go back up to 50°C or spiking even higher immediately. But never getting lower than 41°C.

Edit: Yes, AI suite 3 Fan Expert 4. I'm running 4 be quiet! fans and the H60 waterpump.

I would believe its actual temp. As i said some backround processes we run could cause it to happen. Watching CPU useage, there is evidence of useage when the spikes occur, so its not just spiking when cpu is doing nothing.

Seems just a bit high for me to get a 41°C idle and then have it jump to 58°C in a second and then flipping back & forth like crazy until it comes back to 41°C eventually. smile.gif

As an Update, I closed nearly all of my tasks from the task tray and it practically stopped spiking, most of which were programs that update regularly, including Ai suite 3. I can guess that one is the culprit. Its a possible effect of having multipe softwares that monitor the same things. I wouldn't worry about it too much.

Corsair Link is another piece that I know uses CPU way too much. That one drops my benchmark scores. Gotta close it before I do that stuff.

For those of you with RGB Issues. Try this....

Install version Aura V1.04.29 from the ROG MAXIMUS IX HERO support page.

Run and click default and apply.

Like night and day to a certain extent. Second one does 4ghz with cpu volts set at 1.425v using offset with LLC 2, 100% load cpu voltage is @ 1.375 stable as a rock. I just don't have good enough cooling yet for that speed so running it at 3875mhz now with cpu set at 1.375v LLC2, probably could go lower. Still I could have gotten a 1700x just like the first one, more a crap shoot than anything else. If you did not damage your cpu and it is not stable at stock (mine was), I would return it for another one. Regardless if it is stable at stock, it is still a very powerful cpu.

I don't have Corsair link.


Looks like this. Not too much going on and the frequency hovers around that value. The bottom looks the same all the time, but the temp sometimes gets stable, sometimes spikes for no reason. I thought it would be possible to lock the frequency to a certain speed and maybe then the temp changes won't occur that much. At least then I could work with some fixed values...

It was just an example of something that could cause those spikes. What other software do you have open that monitors MB values? Or that does anything when you aren't looking. BTW network useage also causes cpu useage which gives those spikes.

- Suite 3.
- Sonic Studio 3
- NV Experience
- antivirus software

that's all I have running atm.

Try closing suite 3 and sonic studio 3 and see if those spikes persist.
