CPUz HW Monitor shows two Temp readings, what are they?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello
In my attempt to get to 3.2 Ghz, I added 1.375v in bios. CPUz shows, 1.33 idle and 1.28 load. But there are two Temp sensor that shows following

Idle
TEMP0 46
TEMP1 27
Load
TEMP0 46
TEMP1 46

I am wondering what are they? I would guess TEMP0 is maybe system or case temp sensor ON the mobo, and TEMP1 is NB temp.
So Question is what are these sensors are and are these numbers look too high. I was scared to run a prime more than 2 hour after seeing those.

Thanks for all your help.

They should refer to core1 and core 2 temps. I see you have a quad so possibly the version your using doesn't support quad or there are only two sensors on the chip(most likely).
I see one stays pretty high even at idle(I this right?).
Also, what's your max temperature under load, is that temp you gave the max?after how long?
In my experience, I've always picked 55celcius or 58 (if I was feeling adventurous!!) as the max temp I was prepared to go at under load. I know you can go to 60 odd but I really wanted to get a good life out of the processor.

I really wouldn't worry about 46 degrees, this is fine, my cpu used to be 60 degrees max using the stock cooler before I overclocked.

I'd really test around with a few motherboard/cpu monitors. Some report different temps to eachother...

No it does has a section for 4 cores right under it. which shows core temp
as
Core0
Core3
Core1
Core2
In that order, for some reason 3 comes after 0, and so on.

That is weird, wow if thats the motherboard temp that is reasonable, as you can see we have similar mobos. Mine ran at 43 before overclock and is 46 now on load. My case temp isn't reported to any of my monitors so I don't know what mine is.
