    Default temp readings

    so i have these weird wacky temp readings on my open hardware monitor and f-stream tuning utilities



    when i first boot up i get good readings for about 30 minutes
    except for that one reading that wavers between 88 and 99.5 Celsius? what it THAT about???

    anyhow after about 30 minuites the temps drop to 0 on both open hardware monitor and f-stream tuning utilities

    as much as i'd like to say my cooling is ok, it's deffinatly NOT that good

    jokes aside, any advice as to what this is about?

    Try running either the NZXT util or HWMonitor, but not both at the same time and see if those begin to look more realistic.

    I've never run the NZXT settings and monitoring util here, but on occasion running two differing monitoring programs consecutively will confuse the heck out of both running utils, and User.

    ie: the onboard chip both utils query for their data gives up the ghost and goes whacky.

    OMG, you cannot run all those monitoring programs at the same time! Particularly less sophisticated ones like the NZXT software. Add to that the way AMD has implemented their latest CPU temperature sensors, which is different than in the past, and who knows what you'll get.

    I have seen monitoring software included with an Intel manufactured mother board, and coded by Intel, fail miserably when I ran a second monitoring program. If Intel could not get it right, what does that tell you? In reality, there are protocols that should be followed, and if they aren't, all heck breaks loose. So one monitoring program confuses the other, and eventually the data in the sensor chip is corrupted.

    Forget those other programs, use HWiNFO64: HWiNFO, HWiNFO32/64 - Download

    It is coded right and is much less likely to interfere with another monitoring program, not that you'll need one after seeing HWiNFO.

    i need the NXZT to control my water cooling
    & the fstream is to control my overclocking

    i'm running this up a brick wall fast

    We need detailed information about ALL OF THE HARDWARE in your system.

    We can best help you after you create a detailed hardware list in the System Specs
    portion of your forum profile at the bottom of the profile page or in your forum signature.
    Be sure to include brand names and model numbers.
    When you are done editing or creating your hardware list, save the settings.

    When we have all of this information in your PC Specs, we can help you find a solution much faster.

    Your first post was only 14 hours ago.

    It sometimes take several days (or longer) to solve some problems even if some of the more knowledgeable forum members have a similar hardware/software setup.

    I've never seen a fix for multiple monitoring programs causing confused readings. That is, except using two at the same time maximum, and that is not guaranteed.

    As Prof Jim said, we need information about all your PC's hardware.

    This is an example of why I dislike the proprietary fan speed control that some CPU coolers use. The CPU cooler is no doubt using three pin fans, so fan speed control is included by the manufacture since three pin fan speed control via the mother board is so variable in quality. That's why I use four pin PWM speed controlled fans for the CPU cooler, and use the board's PWM fan speed control in the BIOS.

    Over clocking is best done with BIOS settings. The Windows OC programs are usually poor, and good only for trying individual adjustments to see if the PC BSODs after they are done.
