CoreTemp vs RealTemp and TJmax

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I have a E7200 (45nm) should I use CoreTemp or RealTemp for getting my temperatures?
when running Prime95 (just to show max temperatures) I get
CoreTemp=
Core 0- 55-56C
Core 1- 55-56C
TJmax- 100C

RealTemp=
Core 0- 50-51C
Core 1- 50-51C
TJmax- 45

EDIT= For the sake of information, here is the temps at idle
CoreTemp=
Core 0- 41-42C
Core 1- 41-42C
TJmax- 100C (unchanged)

RealTemp=
Core 0- 36-37C
Core 1- 36-37C
TJmax- 58-59

Which program is correct?

Also what exactly does the TJmax tell you and (according the the right program) is the number good/safe?

My understanding is that RealTemp is a better app for dual core chips and Core Temp is better for single or quad cores. I don't know why that might be or how it was determined, but I've read it on several distinct forum threads on varying sites.

From my observation, RealTemp is closer to my mobo's utility reading.

I hope that helps, or that someone who has some better facts can help you out.

Most swear by CoreTemp!

If it was me, I'd get a third opinion by using HWMonitor (my personal fave).

Right well this would be fine if the temps were not different.
Is it true that 45nms are good on RealTemp? If so then that would make me happy seeing well that's what I have! If so is the TJmax normal?

If you use up to date versions they should all match.
