Interpret Temperatures for me please...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Very confused at temperature readings. I thought I was getting good temperatures for an overclock using the stock heatsink until I was told to install 'Core Temp' as a more accurate CPU temperature monitor. Now I am just confused. Am I frying my processor? Am I safe? Am I getting good/bad temps? Please advise:

SpeedFan:
CPU: 21C (I believe this is supposed to be TCase?)
Core 1: 27C (I believe this and the one below are supposed to be TJunction?)
Core 2: 29C

Asus Probe II:
CPU: 22C

Core Temp:
TJunction: 85C
Core 0: 28C
Core 1: 29C

If my temps are okay, how good are they? How much more room do I have to overclock with stock HSF (Am planning to purchase Thermaltake V1 or MaxOrb soon anyways).

Going to grab load temps for you guys, will post in a few...

You have very good idle temps, i recommend you dont go above about 60C LOAD so you have lots of room to go

Here are my load temps (ran Oblivion with max settings...I know not as reliable as Orthos/Prime95 but just for now...):

SpeedFan:
CPU: 33C
Core 1: 35C
Core 2: 36C

Asus Probe II:
CPU: 34C

Core Temp:
TJunction: 85C
Core 0: 34C
Core 1: 35C

Ambient temp in the room: around 24C

That 85C is confusing me...why is it so high and why didn't it change under load?

From reading guides/forums, I have determined that it is good to stay below 55C-60C when overclocking....which number of the above is that referring to?

The 85c reading thatyou are seeing isnt actually a reading at all. That is the type of sensor that your chip uses. Some people have 100c sensors and they detect the temp differently. You have nothing to worry about with the temps youve posted. You should run orthos for a few hours and see what you get.

Thanks for info, still wondering about which temp I am to look to when overclocking.

I want to stay around max 55C load, but which temperature am I supposed to be looking at for this? In my load temps post, the CPU and Core1/2 temps are similar, but usually the CPU temp is about 10 deg lower compared to the core 1/2 temps.

So if I take the CPU temp to 55C load and find out everyone actually meant stay below 55-60C in core1/2, I'll have overclocked too far.

Always go by the hottest core. The CPU temp is measured by the mobo, while the two core temps are measured by two diodes in the hottest parts of the cores. Once core 1 or 2 hits 55C I would ease up on the Vcore.
