Incredible Temps for air cooling?!

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Ok, I'm getting 17C -20C idle all the time from Core Temp AND CMOS. Did I get a really good chip or is this just some kind of weird glitch? I'm running on everything stock. Just wanted to let you guys know..

How's your ambients?

Like i'm getting 32C idle (i'm 24 ambient.)

But to be sure use Intels TAT to get more accurate temps.

Use TAT and how cold is it in that room? Is the ac blowing right near or onto the intake to the case?

Your ambient temps must be <20C.

Well I don't have an Intel board so TAT won't work. I'm getting these results from CMOS Core Temp... I dunno about ambient, but I feel comfy in a tshirt and shorts...

[EDIT] No AC on right now...its summer

Sounds like a dodgy sensor. Are you absolutely sure that TAT will not work? Other programs to try are Everest and Speedfan.
