I have several cpu temp. monitors and I don't know which one is right.<br />
<br />
Here is a list of programs and <u>Idle Temperatures</u><br />
<br />
Easy Tune 5 20c<br />
<br />
Speed Fan 29c<br />
<br />
Everest home 40c<br />
<br />
Hmonitor 40c<br />
<br />
PC Wizard 06 40c / core1 29c / core2 22c<br />
<br />
Core Temp Beta core1 28c / core2 20c<br />
<br />
I have an AMD 64x2 4800. I've read that the temps should never go above 55c. Which temps should not go over 55c, the core temps or the cpu temps, and what is the most accurate?

It is best to check the BIOS to find the closest to accurate temperature.

I would porb check it in the bios then boot and see which one matches most closely, if you could post a screen shot I might be able to tell. With out that however it's a shot in the dark.

is that what it said on the cpu temp or board temp, that sounds a little low.

<div style="font-style:italic;">That was cpu temp (23c) in bios. System temp says 28c in bios.</div>

Man! I would kill to get my 4800 that cool! I am clocked to 2.7, but I have never had those kinds of readings. Aiboost shows 49*C, which is exactly what my bios says it is. You got your "puter in an ice box? What is your ambient temps?

ambient temps are 19-20c, but i don't have much of an overclock, cause i'm new to AMD. But I will be working on it.

BIOS idle temps are higher than in-OS idle temps, for some reason like because in BIOS it doesn't know how to manage the CPU or something like that. It's got some usage while in BIOS is what i mean. Can't remember where i read that, though. Anyone know anything about this?

I think it's becuase the processor isn't under load and the fan speeds aren't as high as they could be everytime i get out of bios my fans go nuts speeding back up.
