going pretty well so far, ~6hrs of prime95.
my only concern is about the temps. read some posts here saying i should be looking at CPU TEMP/TMPINX not core temps. is that right?
core temp (the program) is giving me around 52c max under max load. HWMonitor is giving me the same on the cores, 33c max for TMPIN0, 58c for TMPIN1, 61c on TMPIN2.
should i be concerned? running on a GA-890XA-UD3
Uninstall Core Temp now. Use HWMonitor, it's much more reliable. Yes, do not look at core temperatures, but overall CPU socket temperatures. You can verify which temperature is which by using HWMonitor along with AMD Overdrive, ASUS Probe II (with Asus boards, obviously
) and/or Everest.
I recommend using Everest and HWMonitor to identify which TMPIN0/1/2 are the correct temps for your board. Usually it reads CPU/NB/GFX,SB but sometimes HWMonitor reads it differently for some boards; NB/CPU/GFX,SB etc...
Once you pair up the temperatures with different programs (BIOS is a good way to check also, listed under your Hardware page) you'll know what to look for.
Keep the CPU/Socket temp under 60c, and preferably even lower under 55c.
