CPU Temp Varies on Programs?
Nov 19, 2013, 8:00 AM
First time overclocking and worrying about that variations in temperatures between programs. While running Prime95 @ 100% on all 8 cores here are my readings.
Core Temp - 43C
HWMonitor - 42C
MSI Control Center - 52C
Also I have heard these things being overclocked to 5.0ghz what id like to know is a safe 100% load to stop at if anyone knows.

When I turn on my pc and go to bios screen is stays around 35c, heres my part list build is roughly 2 weeks old
Why does CPU temp varies depending on software, and Bios?
CPU monitoring programs - Safe to use "Core Temp" from ALCPU? RealTemp or CoreTemp?
Any cpu temp monitoring programs??
just built my first pc...antivirus and cpu/gpu temp programs

Can't find your answer ? Ask !

looks good, also have u tried stress testing with OCCT
its quite good for testing stability and load temps
try that and letme know what max temps ur getting.

Getting the same as HWMonitor and Coretemp reported earlier

well those temps sounds alright sir. i wouldnt worry
Ask a new question
I cant get a cpu temp reading with ANY monitoring programs at all.
