cpu temps...cores or not cores?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Just curious what everyone is referring to when they give their cpu temps...are you referring to the cores that realtemp gives you, or just the one cpu temp. that evga e-leet tuning utility gives (or some other program that uses one temp no matter how many cores there are.) gives you?

Just wondering because my temp for cpu is 24 celcius with a ambient of 24, but my lowest of four cores is 34 celcius.

People usually give their hottest core if they are rockin' a multi-core chip and yes, most readings are from Realtemp, Coretemp etc.

and if you want to be sure.. look just at the distance to tjmax, this is the temp from which your core temp is calculated, which can lie if the tjunction value is wrong. keep distance to tjm over 20-30 during full load with prime/linx/ibt and occt or heaven running infinite some hours (at least 6-14) to know you have good temps.

+1 reps for answering...however, I don't think that most people that post their temps are giving the hottest core temps.

ty..

so they lie to theirselfes
ah and i 4got to say that you always should keep the room temperature (near the tower of course) in the eye and calculate the delta (maxtemp - roomtep = delta) to have real comparable temps.

I usually quote the "average" core temp, as this is more likely indicative of where your CPUs temp actually is. E.g. 1st core 58, 2nd 60, 3rd 61, 4th 59 I'd say "60 C."

And yeah, we're getting the temp from progs like Coretemp/Realtemp.

Smex, you're right, many people ignore ambient temp when they're comparing how well their cooling system is working/whether they should upgrade/reseat.
Why upgrade?
