Moronic temps

Right,

Im fed up of these obsucre readings im getting on every bit of software i get.

Basicly every monitor ive tryed reads the temp as 30-33degC. Weather its idle or has been under load for a good few minutes (spi 32m).

The only monitor i can get a fluxing reading between idle and load is nvMonitor. Wich reads my idle temp as about 18 and load as 25.

I find it hard to belive that any of these readings are true. Right now im running the cpu at 1.45v @ 2.6ghz.

Anyone got any ideas? I think i may have to dig out a thermometer...

You could always check the temps in the BIOS. I have used Speedfan and PCMonitor 1.68 and they read my temps fine. Everest had my temps completely wrong.

Try the 1.68 version and the 2.0 version. The 2.0 gave me incorrect temps but the 1.68 gave me accurate temps.

Well a google for PCmonitor gave me spyware warnings, so i think ill pass on that one.

Core temp seams to be quite good. Idels of ~27 and after 6 n 1/2 mins of 100% load (spi 8m) it was reading 32degc. Its very cold in my house atm too, so these seam reasonable. Props to PV.

Np's mate, my pleasure. Although I do agree with Kemp...Smart Guardian is pretty well spot on for me too How are you enjoying your watercooling?

Smart Guardian Seamed to stay locked at 30degC for me. Proably got a cheap sensor on the board.

Watercooling is fantastic. Need my Passive zalman HS for northbridge and XMS to post my GPU block and my pc will be silent. Sleeping with it on will no longer require earmuffs.
