Wrong Readings on CoreTemps and CPU Throttling

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hey there,

Does anyone knows what i could do really,
when i'm in a game, like 10 minutes, my cpu "Overheats", now here it is, a while ago i figured and tested with a hardware monitor laser on the chipset my cpu, the temperature was 55 °C on load, but when i use software to look at it its XTREME! just look at this http://img705.imageshack.us/i/coretempp.png/

you can see its over 100 °C TJMax pc isn't rebooting or anything, since i think its just wrong what the software reads there. and because of that, i think even if thats false, the cpu thinks its really overheating like that and starts throttling. and i get massive performance issues in games, can i do something against this? new cooler and stuff like that isn't needed since im pretty sure it isn't overheating.

Thanks

Try HWMonitor or RealTemp to see if it isn't just Core Temp not giving you the right temps. But if you need to, you might want to reseat the heatsink or apply some quality TIM.

Bare in mind that taking a surface temperature will always vary compared to core temperatures by a lot.

well look, i can confirm this.

it must be the wrong temperatures, and the cpu throttels down to 1,99 ghz though.

i applied thermal paste 3 days ago.

Edit: Tried with HWMonitor, Everest Realtemp, all the same

Paste doesn't matter anything if the heatsink isn't making good enough contact or isn't a sufficient heatsink.

Touch the heatpipes if you have them, and if you can't touch it for more than a few seconds I guarantee its 90C+

i can touch them like forever. checked the fan its all ok.
its all the time like that, that it goes over 100 °C, but if we think logicaly, i have this pc now for 2 years, don't you think it would be destroyed until then, with these temps ?
the cpu works alone to see if it needs to shutdown when it gets to hot, and applys #PROCHOT but it isn't overheating, though when i start my pc, that was shutdown in the last night, bios shows me already 90 °C, the fan speed is 1935 rpm -.-, and speedfan doesen't work for me, does anybody know some other software?

Cheers

have u check the mounting? maybe its lose or something.
since the heatsink is cool to touch then check ur TIM and mouting. if its not that then the temp sensor's gone bad. time to RMA.

hey again, thanks for all your answers,
but it isn't really the fan or heatsinks they're set i chcked them 3 times already.
but what i did now, i set the cpu that it can't go lower than 2,33 Ghz when it needs to throttle, it works i don't get any performance issues, and tested for 30 minutes, but im afraid the processor maybe needs the throttling, and my pc will just shut down, and won't boot or something?

That really isn't normal, I suggest an RMA as well... Unfortunately. Or completely remove the CPU, give the cooler a good clean, give the area's round the motherboard a good clean. If you have any canned air, give it a good blow over.

Then check the voltages, could be a defective PSU, if you have another PSU lying round, test it on that.

never mind, it forces it to throttle after 45 minutes or so to 1,99 Ghz, is there a way to completly disable cpu throttling? shutdown on overheating is ok, but throttling is -.- annoying.
