What temp is what??

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So, I just overclocked during the week, and I noticed some discrepancies in temp reporting....

Basically, here are Core Temp and SpeedFan. First one idle, second one load.

Idle:


Load:


My question is, does my motherboard seem to be reporting ambient as "Core" and Temp1 as my actual core? My room currently hovers around 20C, so I guess it would make sense, but if anyone could help confirm it, I think I'd want to tone it down a bit, even though it appears to be completely stable.

Edit: Temp2 being ambient could possibly make sense as well, but Core being lower confuses me...

I would trust Core Temp over speedfan. Try using Hwmonitor.

OK, so this has really been bugging me. The temperature difference is just way too much.



What is my motherboard reporting as CPU??? Why is there such a discrepancy with the temperatures apparently being reported by the actual core? Is something running much hotter than it should? Is it dangerous to the point where I shouldn't clock higher? Help!!!

My guess would be HWMonitor thinks your NB is your CPU. I noticed my TMPIN0 was usually 10C higher than my processor and asked on here and was told it was likely my NB or my socket. Your "CPU" happens to be 10C higher than your actual CPU just like with my situation so that would be my best guess.

As for CoreTemp vs SpeedFan, Speedfan has Temp1/2/3 and the Core temp which appears to match up with your CPU temp on CoreTemp. Temp1 is likely your NB or socket but I don't know about Temp 2 and Temp 3 is..well I have no idea.

Here's the link to the post I was referring to.

The mainboard may have a temp sense/thermistor just below the chip, the cores are what the chip itself is reading (same deal but one for each core, a sensor, so 4 core temps), the discrepancy (from this example) is the gap between the two (the core temp is accurate to itself) while the mainboard could vary wildly depending on how the thing is physically sitting on the board. Gatta figure they are both right, just reading in two physically different spaces. Like any temp sense, it tends to be accurate for itself (ie. not really calibrated to all sensors for all mobo's/cpus). Your temps and my temps could be reported as being a couple degrees different, but in the work a day world, the same... oc'n take that into consideration and play with your settings to see what works well and what crashes and where that temp/load is. Once you do that, you interprit your own calibration to your own stuff. Hope that helps.
