5000+ BE OC temps

Noob here bare with me.

HW monitor is showing both cores in the mid to upper 30s under "100%" load (Prime95) while my ASUS PC probe shows 59*C @ 3.2ghz.

Im guessing that HW monitor is getting false readings, since i know my CPU cooler isn't that good. I have read here that these chips notoriously show false temps.

What other programs would you guys suggest i try for monitoring CPU temps on these chips?

Try Coretemp.
You are correct the brisbane cores are notorious for giving false readings.

ok thanks. Got it, temps look like they are accurate, but its showing frequency of 2057. (1.2ghz lower then it actually is)

Reads 128.59x 16

CPU Z says 3214, odd.
Most Brisbane cores do not report temps correctly.

Mine bounces around all the time, and idles @ 3-4 degrees... LOL.

use Speedfan... It shows me core and CPU temps.

when using hw monitor check the TMPIN0 temperature. for me that is the cpu temp. TMPIN1 is the motherboard/system temperature and TMPIN2 is a false reading that jumps all over the place.

any program that gives you individual core temps will always give you false readings because your core is a Brisbane.

as for your frequency reporting issue, as long as the bios reports the same as cpuz dont believe anything else.
