Confused about temps after OC

Hi all,

I'm overclocking my Athlon II x2 270 at the moment. I've been running prime 95 for 15 mins every time I increase the FSB (I'm planning, of course to do a very long test at the end)

Anyway, while I'm testing, I'm using HW monitor and the core 0 and 1 temps show 48 degrees on max load! I'm confused as I'm using no special state-of-the-art cooler, just the stock fan!

These temps must be wrong. There is another reading under the name TMPIN 0 which shows a more reasonable 59 degrees Celsius and when I stop the test, the temps decrease the most dramatically of all temps showing 34 degrees Celsius. Could this be the real cpu temperature.

Thanks.

No. Temperatures near 70 degrees are seen without oc commonly. See this: http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000687.htm


What tool should I use to check temps. I've tried real temp (which doesn't work with my cpu), HWMonitor and speedfan. Any ones that are more accurate. I don't want to oc again until I know my load temps for sure.

HWMonitor is accurate, so is core temp http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/
the core temperature and the socket temperature are taking from different sources so will be different but if you check the core temperatures from core temp and HWMonitor they should both read the exact same at the same time
