Temp to believe..?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Frustration sets in as my Opty 180 shows 41c with light load on PC Probe, but SiSoft Sandra reports 36c...

Which to believe?

Or should I scrap them both in favor of another guage?

Or should I just say screw it and go drink another beer..?

I never trust software temp monitors. They are usually all off. Everest, SiSoft, PC Probe, and Speedfan all report different temps. With a light load, 41C seems a little high. What is your Vcore set to?

I'm not overclocked at all... and my Vcore is set at 1.38v

I'm running stock and right now all I am running is a music anayzer giving me about 50% load. With no load at all, PC Probe will report about 35c or so, and Sisoft will report 29-30c

Well if you ask me I'd say average the two, lol. 35C with only 1.38 Vcore seems a little high and 29-30C id say is a little less than average. Im guessing the Vcore is actually set at 1.4, but the reading is a tad low. What have the two sensors reported while on a high load with something such as prime95?

Well... I didn't run Sisoft with it, but PC Probe was reporting about 44c with a full load on my 3DMark CPU test... (I have the alarm set to go off if it hits 45c and it didn't...)

I should have pretty good air flow through my case. I do have a lot of hardware in it, but I was as careful as I could be when I wired it to make sure that I wasn't cutting off the air flow. It's sucking so much air through the front filter that it almost sucks my hand to the case when I put it in front of the top filter. lol

That sounds right on for a load temp considering the voltage. I have mine to set 1.475 right now and my load temps are about 46C. Ive noticed that PC Probe does have some errors though. It doesnt detect the correct fsb for my system and will sometimes report my vdimm as being too low. Hopefully Asus will fix this problem with future releases.

Thanks for the help man...

since you dont use software temp guages... What brand of hard guage qwould you recommend? Since I had decided not to overclock just yet, I thought that I could get away without installing one, but now I'm not so sure about any of the software accuracy, and with my new vid cards coming tomorrow, I am considering overclocking just to see what kind of scores I can get out of them.

Well, I dont actually use any hardware to monitor my settings, I just dont trust software 100%. They arent incorrect enough to warrant a purchase of extra hardware. I didn't mean to set you astray in your goal of overclocking, I was just making you aware of the fact that software isnt exactly accurate. It is however accurate enough to effectively monitor temps if you plan on overclocking, if that makes any sense? Being a few degrees off every now and then wont kill your system.

Awesome.... Thanks for the heads up...

I had decided before not to overclock at all, but now that I got my hands on two 7900GTX 512MB, I thought I might see if I could squeeze a bit out of it just to see how high a score I could get

Semms like you allready got the help you needed

But try using a multimeter, and attach it to your HS / CPU head, and look up the temps, and check them with the software temps
