Looking at your setup I can see why maybe yours operates at such a lower temp then mine:

1.) Your CPU is water cooled meaning its not giving of near the same heat mine is and obviously the CPU sits right next to the NB.

2.) I have the dual GPU HD5970 also sitting right next my NB which could also be radiating a bit more heat.

3.) Finally operating with yours sitting out in the open with the lid removed like that will also contribute to the cooler temps.

I'm thinking if you add those up it probably amounts to about 8-10 degrees difference. Even with that you're board operates at a very cool temps. Thats impressive.
I just noticed that pcprobeII is reporting 51c on my cpu running prime, but through the ROG connect to my laptop I can see that the BIOS is only reporting 45c. All the rest of the temperatures and everything else are the same. Co_oL

EDIT: by a show of hands, who thinks I should use the BIOS reading instead of OS readings? Why would that reading be so far off?

Thanks Fox;

If you have any doubts just check my sig, I have video evidence.

Oh and driver, it matters not one way or the other. The OS utility is a close representation of what BIOS is. You shouldn't have to be running in and out of BIOS as many times as you may be checking throughout your day, except if you're Overclocking. So if BIOS says you're coming in under what the OS utility says then so long as your OS utility isn't screaming bloody murder it's okay to rely on it.

I do have to say I like PC Probe II cause it's nice to have boxes on the desktop of what you're actually running. Instead of an all encompassing utility program like CPU-Z. lulz

could it be the difference between CORE temp reading (which tends to be lower) vs. socket temp? just a guess... I'm not as tech smart as some ppl here lmao

I'm not going in and out of the BIOS, I'm looking at the BIOS readings on my laptop, connected to the Crosshair with the ROG(USB) cable and a program called RC TweakIt. Ohh and I can do a lot of overclocking through the RC TweakIT program too. That's how I increased my NB voltage without ever leaving my desktop.

I don't think so, my cores read ~ 10c lower than cpu does in HWMonitor. I think I'll go with the BIOS temperature. Not that it's even hot @ 4.2GHz and 1.55v or so. 44c (BIOS reading) right now running Prime Blend. NB is @ 40c.

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Aha, I have my Netbook to be able to do so but that would entail me actually having my Board here and not stuck 15 minutes away from neweggs RMA facility. I sent it out on Tuesday. Now I get to go through the holiday w/o my little buddy and Iz sadder than I was when I found out I had to RMA it.

I sure wish newegg would have insisted on a confirmation before shipment by the UPS service here and just sent me a new Board when mine shipped. Would make things SO MUCH nicer. Yes I get that they want to make sure my 3rd slot is toast beforehand but I tried every chip of RAM in 1st slot and all worked fine. Also swapped 2nd slot with every chip and that setup worked fine. Though it shouldn't have for all intents and purposes. Even showed up as 4Gb of RAM. I just hope it wasn't a BIOS issue.

I think I'll be loading my OS into my FDD so I can take XP off my netbook while I wait. Boredom sucks.

I'm using BIOS 0905 and have had no troubles. First thing I did was update the BIOS.

Off topic....I am 3 hours 19 minutes (I had to do some racing) prime blend stable @ 4214MHz -301 x 14 @ 1.55v, 2100MHz NB @ 1.22v, and 1605MHz memory @ 1.82v

CPU is reading 42c right now.

Not off topic as you are doing this OC on the ASUS Crosshair IV Formula. Right? Now if your OC was on the M4A89GTD Pro/USB3? That's off topic.

I received a some what vague reply from EK about the water block being shippable 100% through the week, which is now coming to a close, but it's still listed as "No Stock!!" on their website. I put in an inquiry to Performance PC's, & the reply they got also had them sending out another e-mail to EK. They wanted to know if the water block was in the shipment that was just sent out to them, or if they still need to be shipped. I probably wont have an answer until some time next week.
