Temp Readings on E8400

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I've just bought a Noctua NH-U9F cooler,i've oc'd my e8400 to 3.8ghz and seems stable but the thing is that my temp readings are totally different.Everest is showing me 48° at idle and RealTemp 53°.If i hit the Start button on Prime RealTemp is jumping after a blink directly to 60-62° but everest temp is growing slowly.The cooler is mounted today for the first time and i've used AS5 and installed a second fan on the heatsink.But the RealTemp reading is just 4-5° lower than stock cooling.Is the RealTemp readings trustable???Some times is showing me CPU Freq as 1.@M.How can i be sure each one is really my temp???Thank you

I'd trust Everest over anything else besides the BIOS. It has proven to be the most accurate for any of my temperature readings, mainly GPU.

Well...for me Everest is the right one too.Because RealTemp is oscilating even on idle between 52-60° but really quickly.Right now is 52° and after a blink is 60°.

Lol, CPU's do get hot fast without proper cooling, but I know what you mean and that isn't right if it's jumping that quickly. I monitor my CPU in Fahrenheit and when compared to Celsius, it looks like it goes up really fast sometimes, but obviously it would since its true value is 5C for 9F.

No no I was just speaking in general with CPU's, lol. I just took a gander at some Noctua pictures on google to get an idea with what you got and it looks like a Tuniq. I'm sure with a good fan smacked on the side of that baby it'll work great.

The thing is that i've installed another fan.But right now looks like a sandwich with the PSU.Could this be a problem?My PSU is blowing the air ouside the case and the white fan is blowing in to the heatsink the black one is pulling the air from the heatsink and blowing it into the psu.What ideas do you have about that?

RealTemp TjMax = 95c
Everest = 100c
CoreTemp = 105c
HW Monitor = 105c
I go by RealTemp and use 95c as TjMax for my 8400.
http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...light=realtemp

Everest and CoreTemp TjMax is adjustable if you want them in sync.

I've just downloaded Everest 4.5 and it shows core 1=77°,core 2=77° CPU=56°

And RealTemp is showing 67° on each core and the tj is set to 95° but in Everest i couldn't find the tjMax settings...I really Hope that the Everest CPU reading is the real one,but inside the case my air is very hot from my NB and from the video card because is one slot video card and is blowing all the hot air inside the case but i'm running open case...

Your CPU cooler should be facing horizontally IMO. Have one fan blow through it and one fan pull away and let it exit out the back of the case instead of up into the PSU. It would be a lot more efficient and there would probably be less heat because it looks bottled up right now.
