Thread: Temp reading question




  1. #1

    Default Temp reading question

    On a new build I have an air cooler ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2. I have an OC of 3.6 on a Phenom 1090. Not much but still an OC. I have several different things to check temp and all of them are saying 36 degrees at idle. They are also measuring all 6 cores and all of those say between 26-27. Is this a good idle temp or should it be less than this?

    I dont understand your post, are idle temps 36, or between 26 and 27?
    Idle temp of 36 is a little high, the 26 to 27 is excellent. What is load temp like?

    It shows each core 1,2,3, etc individually on the amd overdrive as 26 degrees and then it says cpu 36.

    I would go by the indivual temps. Have you tried HW monitor or speed fan to verify temps? Free to download at www.download.com
    HW Monitor is part of CPUID, or CPUZ, I dont reacall which. Also, since we are talking about idle temp, check the temp in your BIOS too. If BIOS agrees with either of the programs, and idle temp is low, 26/27 C, your'e good. 36C would be a little high on idle. You can use speed fan to check load temps.
    Are you sure the 36C isnt the GPU temp?

    Okay, I have HW monitor. Are you saying that I need to look at the readings on HW monitor where it says core 0, core 1, core 2 etc????? There is a section that says CPU which has only one temp and another that has all 6.

    Does the HM Monitor tell you the core temps are close to the AMD program? and Does the CPU temp match the AMD Program? Are you still running 36 C on the cpu but cooler on the individual cores?
    I am working, out of town and dont have access to the HW Monitor program now but do not recall it having the core temps and then a total CPU temp. Are you sure it is reporting the 6 cores and then a seperate and different CPU temp? Is it possible that what you are reading says GPU temp instead of CPU temp? Let me know, I think I would consider everything OK as long as the cores are reporting under 30C each at idle, but am curious too about the variance. I will check my HW Monitor tomorrow night when I get home too, it's very possible I am just not remembering it correctly

    I am using core temp and the temp in core temp matches that of my individual readings in HW and also AMD overdrive readings. It is actually at 24degrees now for the idle. I guess the arctic silver is maturing or something. I am stress testing right now with OCCT linpack and the temps in there also match the temp in core temp and the others in the individual core temps. In the stress test it has gone to 56 degrees so far at 100 % cpu. I don't know if it will go any higher. I will post if it does.
