    Default CPU Temp SpeeFan vx AMD Overdrive

    Does anyone know why AMD overdrive reports a lower cpu temperature than SpeedFan; for my cpu it is anywhere from 7-9 degrees C lower reported in Overdrive.

    AMD X3 720be

    GA-MA790X-UD4P

    Thanks

    Hi reggah I tried AMD Overdrive and it accually got the fans and temperatures backwards. When I adjusted the cpu speed on the fan it changed the system fan speed. I am using speedfan when I adjust the cpu or case/system fan speed with Speedfan it gets it right cause I can look inside my case and see them change. Speedfan is working right on mine and AMD overdrive was backwards.

    Now in this photo you will see where I manually turned my cpu fan off and I looked in my window and watched the fan go off and the cpu temperature rise.

    I have a tendency to agree with you. I checked the temps using the gigabyte 6 and they pretty much agree with SpeedFan

    Well Speedfan works great once you click on the info tab then get config you will see a ticket box open up click on that url almico that will send you to a site where you should register. then do this over again when you confirm e-mail and when you get back there again you go to next step find your motherboard from the dropdown list. Get a ticket number install the ticket number. Restart speedfan then adjust settings with the configure tab. This will put your settings configure and a ticket number on the web so you can use it later.
