All my temperature readings are different!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have an Asus P5Q Pro with a Q9300 and a Xigmatek Rifle Cooler. The problem is when I used Core Temp 0.99, it says i idle around 50° C and around 65° C on a full load. However, even when I decrease the voltage and declock the CPU, the temps don't change at all. I've used a few different temp programs and all the readings are different. I attached an image of the temps I've been getting. Can someone help me out?

I like coretemp, although i've heard the new drivers have issues. Many people like speedfan though. Just because you lower the voltage doesn't mean the temp will go down, though it should. Make sure for the programs the TJmax is set too 100C.

Edit: on your picture coretemp and speedfan are the exact same temps. I would use either one of those because it is a fat chance they are both wrong.

Yeah I thought the same thing, but when I stress the CPU and the temps go up to around 65° C, the heatsink doesn't feel hot at all. It's only slightly warm. Thanks for your help!

EDIT: I also recently lapped my CPU, but there were no temperature changes after I lapped it.
