heat issues?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
specs in sig.

I'm checking my cpu temp through nvidia's system monitor, and it says all 4 of my processors are around 58c (I have not tried to overclock anything). However, when I reboot, and check the bios, it read in the low 30s. Do they cool off that quick? or is the system monitor from nvidia not reporting correctly? This is my first build, doing it to learn. I just have no idea what to make of this

am i misinterpreting the temps? the ones in the 50s are the core temps, the bios temps are low 30s for cpu.

don't bother with nvidia's system monitor... download coretemp, realtemp or HWmonitor (I prefer HWmonitor)... check it with that and then post it here for me

probably a noob question but hey that's why i'm here. Are those core temps ok? I can't find for the life of me what a normal core temp is for this processor w/o OC. When I look at reported core temps by HW monitor and they're 52 50 50 53 idle or very close together like that vs seeing 30c in the bios listed as CPU temp. Am I comparing two things that aren't supposed to match?
