    I have attached a screenshot of my BIOS settings. I couldn't find the software they used to read their temps so I just used SpeedFan. I hope that is OK.

    When I said alarm, I meant that I had set up a custom alarm to warn me if my CPU temps hit 70*C. Usually, I'd be much more comfortable at 60*C or 65*c, but since it is summer my room heats up a lot. When my computer is on full load, I easily hit 65*C.

    When I said I left my BIOS settings on default, I mean that I didn't change anything. When I went to take a look at my BIOS settings, it seems like when I updated my BIOS, the settings automatically retested to some sort of predetermined state. That is why I had to change the following three things in my BIOS:

    • Load from my DVD-ROM first (to perform MemTest)
    • Change my RAM voltage to 2.1 (to match RAM manufacturer specifications)
    • Have an alarm when CPU temperature reaches 70*C

    You can find all the programs in Latest Overclocking Programs, System Info, Benchmarking, & Stability Tools
    SpeedFan is quite ok but I don't see the CPU temps there and core temp not always show the right value and may need to be adjusted. I can't tell what is your sustem temp either.

    65c moyherboareed reading CPU yemp is *very* high, 70c is about as much your CPU can take, that's it's max temp, above that it will start limit itself. Something must be done with your temps, I don't thinl they should be so high even with stock HS. What room temperature do you have?

    Yes I understand, I wasn't reading it right the first time.
    After updating BIOS you shoukd have load optimized defaults, if not then load optimized defaults and reapply your 3 changes.

    Do you still have the problem with slots 1 & 3? You decided to keep the board using slots 2 & 4?

    Which program do you suggest me to use to monitor my temps? I tried using RealTemp and RealTemp showed that my CPU is several degrees cooler then SpeedFan.

    Last night when I took the screenshots, the room temperature was around 24*C. My processor at idle was 49*C. Again, my processor temperature reading is based from SpeedFan, which seems to be inaccurate.

    I will optimize my BIOS and then reapply my three changes. At the moment I am using memory slots 1 & 3. I also ran MemTest for 7 hours and it passed.

    RealTemp and CoreTemp both show the same temperature and use 100c TJmax which is right to my CPU. SpeedFan shows 5c more and I think it uses 105c TJmax, it can be shifted in advance pereferences.

    I use both, SpeenFan for fan and voltage monitoring and RealTemp for core temps.

    Hi icu222much Could you try downloading hardware monitor and post results here? Click on it here----> CPUID
    CPUID is really a Hardware monitor which will post most of your voltages in Windows.
    I am looking at your Speedfan voltage you posted, and they look like they are off. You should compare them with another program to see if it is Speedfan or something else.
    The CPUID Hardware monitor gives you a display like this---->

    Sounds good. Here we go.

    What is the difference between my Temperature CPU (28*C) and my Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Core #0 (37*C)?

    9c I think.

    No I was joaking. The 2 different temperatures are measured by two different type of sensors located in different location in the CPU.

    The CPU temperature is measured by a thermal diod and located on the center of the CPU integrated heat spreader, below or above the core I am not sure. The Thermal Specification for your CPU is the maximum operational temperature for your CPU and measured by this sensor.

    The core temps are measured by Digital Thermal Sensors(DTS) located on the hot spot of each core and their purpose is to prevent damage to the processor from over heating. When it reaches it's maximum defined value(TJmax,) it will start throteling the CPU speed do reduce power consumption and heat.

    The CPU temperature diode is located on the motherboard, as far as I know, not on the CPU. If it were on the CPU I'm sure HardOCP wouldn't drill into it to add their own. If you want to accurately measure TCase, you have to add your own sensor. The centre of the IHS is merely where Intel state you should measure from.

    The CPU temp reported by the board is safe to ignore. Only pay attention to core temps.

    This was based on Core i7 and Core 2 Temperature Guide. I can only go by what I find to read.
