CPU Temp - Page 6

post #51 of 87
Thread Starter 
highest i saw was 66C, i definetely dont like it tho.


CAPS FOR NEW INFO! QUESTION AND I DIDNT WANT TO MAKE A NEW THREAD AND DONT WANT ANYONE TO MISS THIS!

I was in my bios <for a different issue> anyway, i checked the cpu temp, and it was 32c-33c when i logged into windows i checked right away on speedfan, it said 42c-44c is the cpu really heating up 10c just from startup and loading windows??? or is it possible one of the temp monitors is wrong? and if so..which one, bios or speedfan??

maybe i need to try another temp monitoring software, anyone know of one so i can double check?? is it possible vista is screwing with the programs, or maybe they dont function properly with quad core... i really dont know what the answer is, just pondering...

also, is it possible updating my bios might help my temps? <I havent updated my bios yet> mostly because i never have updated a bios yet and thats the next thing on my list..learn how to...dont i have to DL the file and load it to a floppy and boot from floppy? all i know is ill get it figured god im such a newb

id be in so much trouble without this forum..that reminds me, REPS INCOMING!!

Bios flash may help, but find one that allows you to flash from windows. Far less risk of having to replace the bios chip.

I never trusted speed fans accuracy. Download Core Temp v.95, it's written for dual/quad cores, doesn't work on my e6600, but the site says some chips accept it and some don't. Get Intels TAT(thermal analysis tool) and Everest Ultimate trial ( unless you do torrents).

Everst list CPU which should match your bios reading, and it's core temps should match both core temp and TAT. They do on my e6600.

One other thing, before installing your WC system did you lay the rad on every side/shake it to insure good bleeding? Air in the rad could cause overly high temps too.

any idea where i can find one to flash from windows? it seems the ones straight from asus have to be loaded to disk, maybe im wrong and im just looking at files wrong tho.


i downloaded TAT and it wont open for me? it blinks open and makes a boing noise and close's lol

and core temp is giving me a driver has failed to load error? *** GRR i cant use either program apparently...for who knows why?

ive got everest running now...very interesting...

Everest is reading Mobo temp 33c

and get this, cpu temp is 46c

running speedfan at the same time...its reading 56c-60c


someone please tell me everest is more likely to be right, id be happy if i could get TAT, or another program to work..but i cant, tat crash's and coretemp driver errors out

Okay, try core temp .92 it works for my e6600 while .95 won't. BTW are you running Vista?

Here are 2 screenies, the first is idle and the second is full load. Trust me the core temp matches
untill it goes below minus.

did you mean coretemp .94? cant dl any other versions..

.94 ran, but just ? after it, it wont read..

everest had an error so i reinstalled...

heres what im reading from the programs i can use

Speedfan

Core 0:59c
Core 1:56c
Core 2:53c
Core 3:55c

Everest
Motherboard 33c
Cpu ?? 42c
cpu1 74c
cpu2 71c
cpu3 69c
cpu4 70c

Everest stability test..cpu reading... 44c

this was under load...**** i hope those temps are wrong or something...why does the

whats the CPU temp mean, and why is it different from core temps? j/c

BTW the speedfan temps were at the same time as the everest temps...

somethings not right no?

damn that 70c scared the **** outa me, turned it off right away lol

lol, maybe ill just buy one of them bigass 1080 rads <9 120mm fans> stick it behind the PC and never worry about this problem again lmao...or one of those really tall radiator stands... and one of those powerful submerged pumps..

i really wanted to fit it all in the case..but i know i cant fit anything more than a 480rad instead of a 360...

and im pretty sure a 480 isnt going to give me enough decrease in temps...unless it was mounted outside the case..im sure that would help some..

Here's core temp .95 download. http://www.thecoolest.zerobrains.com/CoreTemp/

Your mobo temp sensors gotta be screwed. The CPU sensor is on the mobo under the CPU
and runs higher on Intel(lower on AMD), while the core sensor is integrated into the
chips silicon wafer and directly in contact with the cooling surface.

Quads run hotter, but you might want to consider RMA of the CPU/mobo.

And a CD bios flash is fine, just floppy update suck.

Cpu ?? 42c <-this is the diode on the motherboard.....

cpu1 74c <- these are temperatures measured by the internal core diodes
cpu2 71c
cpu3 69c
cpu4 70c
they seem to be pretty high, normally they differ around 10c (example cpu 42 -> internal diode 52c.....don't know if its the same on quads) also think one side of the heatsink is tighter on the IHS.......(cpu3 is under the tightest, cpu1 under the loose one)
you should loosen your bolts (or even redo the thermal paste), and fine tune again......
