CPU temp and core temp

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
On Asus probe, speedfan and hwmonitor I'm getting the same readings while running p95...
CPU 45c
Cores 54c

Which should I go by in relation to the 62c max allowed for this 965 chip?

How is the cpu temp lower than the cores? mine is opposite my cores are always lower then the cpu temp

I would say don't let either exceed 62C.
Usually the CPU temp reads out ~10C higher than the core temp but I had the same issue on my old motherboard. Just don't let anything get over 62C and you should be fine. Remember that Phenom IIs start to lose performance/stability at 55C.

@OP

Do not go by the core temperatures. Although they intend to be accurate, none of them are because no physical sensor exists in-chip. The only sensor is via the socket, which is more accurate. The core temp is a calculated algorithm.

Always go by the CPU (overall) temp (socket temp) not the core temps. This applies to Phenom II's. Intel chips are different.
