B3 Q6600 temps different in bios and vista

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Well, my idle when I check it in bios is 40-42C
In Vista it is around 60C for the first core (HWMonitor, Core Temp, Everest all show the same). Should I go by what BIOS is telling or what? Max I've hit is like 68C under load playing Age of Conan.

I have a thermalright ultra 120 with a 120mm fan pushing air through it towards my exhaust fans. I'm gonna add another 120mm fan I think to the other side see if it helps.

Is windows reporting my temperature incorrectly?

I'm running an HR-03 GT on my 8800 GT with a 92mm fan and that thing sits at 56C under load in AoC so I don't think my cooling should be an issue. Antec P182 case so the airflow is great.


Edit: rig is listed in sig but the mobo is a Gigabyte EP35-DS3R now.

What program are you monitoring temps in Vista?

HWMonitor, Core Temp, Everest

edit: come to think of it I moved my ultra-120 around a bit accidently while installing a case fan on my HR-03 GT so maybe re-seating will help.
