I was wondering why CPU-z is sometimes giving me spikes in my temps, like I will start CPU-z, and watch it, every now and then the temp will jump up to 70C and back down to around 33C. And sometimes, It will show more then one fan connected to the MB, even though I only have 1 attached. And sometimes my RPM on my CPU Fan will be like 32423245235. Other then that, my hard drive temps, and GPU temps seems stable and fine.

You mean the Hardware monitor right?

It's kinda glitchy, I never use it anymore. Try something like Everest or CoreTemp just for your CPU.

I know the feeling. Does this answer your question? Cause I think you meant speedfan, not CPU-Z, since it doesn't give temps on anything.

CPU-z doesn't show that information.

I think he means the hardware monitor made by the same people.

Oh, ya, i mixed those up. What is the best choice for cpu temp and overall hardware monitoring? I just downloaded and installed RealTemp, seems pretty stable, and doesn't have those spikes.

As for everest, what exactly should I get, I see they have paid versions. Anything free thats not a trial?
