Help with monitoring CPU temps?

I've been using HWmonitor for a while now... And I've been watching the ''core'' temps, but should I be looking elsewhere?

Here are some pictures of it.

These are my temps when I only have the browser and Adobe Premiere pro opened.



And these are after encoding a video for 30 seconds in Adobe media encoder.



If I encode for 1 or more minutes it reaches about 85c-90c Under the i7-4770 Core# temps.

Tell me where should I keep my eye on? Under the i7-4770? or the Motherboard TMPIN2?

Also look at other readings and tell me, are they normal?

  1. The critical temps to watch are under the 4770. You could double check with the program "CoreTemp" which is what I use. http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/

    I don't trust HWMonitor for temps.

    90*C. is getting pretty toasty. What is your cooling on the CPU?

  2. I have the stock cooler for the cpu

    I believe that Intel's max operating temp for Haswell is about 74-77*C, so 90 is really getting up there. I only tolerate 90*C. during a stress test and then only briefly.

    You may want to try cleaning the CPU and the cooler, and reinstalling with fresh thermal paste. Something just doesn't seem right.

  4. I think I heard that core# temp under the 4770 doesn't show true temps... And I don't want to download ''coretemp'' because I heard it installs something on your computer without you knowing it.

    If you D/L from a site, like CNET, then yeah, you'll likely get some unwanted baggage with your D/L and installation. The site that I listed is the author's and I didn't have any problems with it.

    Good to be wary though!

  6. Alright just downloaded coretemp, and after encoding a video for 1 min and 20 seconds max temp was 79... Is that normal? Or should I try to encode for longer?

    That sounds much better than 90*.

    Try longer but keep an eye on your temps.

  8. Tried 4 minutes and 30 seconds... results...

    What should I do? Can it be something to do with the frequency? Shouldn't it be like 3.4?

    It is most definitely related to freq. The higher the freq., the hotter it gets, but 3.7 GHz is below the max turbo speed of your CPU: http://ark.intel.com/products/75122/Intel-Core-i7-4770-Processor-8M-Cache-up-to-3_90-GHz

    Here is some of Tom's info on CPU Temps: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-1800828/intel-temperature-guide.html

    Note the following:

    Quote:
    Although Intel's Core i processors are capable of operating above 90C, we also know that excessive heat kills electronics. As common sense and experience usually prevail, most folks in the Intel overclocking community will agree that sustained Core temperatures greater than 80C is too hot for stable gaming or processor longevity.

    Temperatures greater than 80C are typical during 100% workloads such as Stability tests or Thermal tests, however, temperatures are considerably lower during real-world everyday workloads such as video encoding, processor intensive applications or gaming.


    So something is just not right.

    I would remove the cooler, clean the cooler and CPU, and reinstall the cooler with fresh thermal paste, paying particular attention to the locking pins on the cooler to be sure that all 4 are securely locked to the mobo.

  10. Well I didn't overclock anything... And my PC was put together by experts so I don't know... My PC is quite new also, only 4 months old.
  11. Is there a way to disable turbo boost? or something?

    Yes. Go into the BIOS at start up and look for EIST ("Enhanced Intel Speedstep Technology") and disable it.

    OR take it back to the "experts" who built it and tell them to fix it.

  13. Ah, I asked my older brother about this and he knew something about it, so he went in the BIOS and he... I think enabled EIST... but disabled something else that said frequency something something. And now I tried rendering for 5 mins, and my temps barley reached 74c under full load! And it stayed at 3.4
  14. Glad to see that.

    Thanks for the feedback.
