Who should I trust?!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey all, just check my system for the specs.

I get 2 different CPU temp values from HWMonitor and ASUS AISUITE. Yesterday I replaced my CPU fan with a smaller but WAY stronger one. This spins more than 4,000RPMS at 100%. My older one spun at ~1,700RPM. Now my question is, which temps should I trust? (SEE IMAGE)

And on IDLE, temps on HWMonitor are ~50c on each core. On my ASUS AISUITE, CPU temp is ~23c.

Which temps should I trust?
In my bios, the CPU temps always show ~30c.

P.S. : Inside my case is always COLD!!!

Use Core Temp or Real Temp, they are much more reliable, generally regarded as the most accurate temp. monitors

+1 for this. I installed ASUS AI Suite when I first got my mobo and took it off within an hour after installing it. lol It was that bad for me.

i use core temp and i trust it more than anything else
also my aisuite shows 4C lower for cpu than core temp (coretemp 30C, AIsuite 26C)
my hwmonitor shows the core temperature(same ones you circled) the same as core temp ... but my hwmonitor showed different values depending on some random drivers i had installed (atksomething) ... so all in all id get core temp

I use HWM for random stuff, Core Temp for CPU, Afterburner for GPU. Seems to work just fine.
