E8400 CPU Temp......

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm having a hard time finding the answer to one of my many questions. When looking over all the temp programs that have been mentioned here, I noticed that a few of them list what they call the cpu temperature, not the cores themselves, but the cpu temp. You'll notice on both SpeedFan and CPUID, that it is roughly in the 58 degree celsius here at idle (and hits if you believe it hits low to mid 80's during prime95 although the individual cores stay under 60c). What exactly is this measurement from. I noticed that Real Temp 2.68 doesn't include this, or perhaps I'm misreading the results from it.

The Cpu in question you will see from the CPU-Z screenshot there. I was coming from an E6600 65nm before this and I have been reading that there appears to be some trouble with the reporting on the 45nm cores. I still have a couple of days left to return the new e8400 if someone could tell me that themeasurement I'm seeing is unlikely in an e8400. My core temps seem fine I think.

Thanks for any and all help you can provide for me.

Go by the core temperatures, not the "CPU" temperature. Also use CoreTemp as your monitor.

Negative, use RealTemp for 45nm CPU's, it reports better than CoreTemp does.

Yeah, you should be reading core temps instead of CPU. Also, you shouldnt trust the readings other than coretemp really. Coretemp reads the 8400 just fine. And honestly, if you look at real temp, youre temps arent bad at all...

Thanks PPL for the reassurance there. I just haven't seen anyone else showing CPU temperature that high. I was pretty sure I was reading the core temps correctly but wanted to verify that it is indeed the area where I should be looking.
