E8400-Temps Air Only..

Recommended Posts

Hey Kandoo, What program are you using to monitor temps? I tried both Realtemp and Coretemp. There is a 10C difference between the 2 with Realtemp being the lower one. My cpu idle temps are 40C with Realtemp and 50C with Coretemp. Load temps with Coretemp are 65C and Realtemp 10C less. Still not sure which one is the most accurate.

have your tried using TAT?

It reports very close to what coretemp reports, for me.

I would trust coretemp/TAT over any of the motherboard supplied temp monitors except maybe motherboard monitor.

After reading about Realtemp at http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?p=2809778

it seems Unclewebb, the creator of Realtemp, has done a lot of research that he documents at the site. Some are saying that this is the most accurate monitor for the 45nm processors.

yes paint that is what i use, Also the Asus pc probe II that came with my mobo software is showing the same readings as Realtemp. Core temp is way off and my cpu is not supported with TAT (i could not find a update or newer version of TAT).

I use RealTemp for both my E8400 and 3110 CPU Temps.

Can't beat Everest for delivering all the rest of the information.

actually what you want to do is trust the program that gives you the lowest temps, that one has to be correct.

 

You are being silly right KF? :)

I'm hoping so.

Originally I said that my idle and load temps were both 10C higher with Coretemp. After double checking the results between realtemp and coretemp I found that my load temps were just slightly less on Realtemp while my idle temps were 10C less.
