Hi everyone, I recently just built a computer (just 2 days ago) and everything runs fine except for my CPU TEMPERATURE!
Here's what has happened:
I first used the stock CPU cooler (because I couldn't get my old CPU off of the after market heatsink). It worked fine! except I wanted to use the after market cooling (its still a crappy one) Arctic Cooling Alpine 64 pro. So I eventually got the CPU off of the heatsink and I swapped the stock heatsink with the Alpine. After turning on the PC, I checked my HWMonitor, it reads the initial temperature as 79 Degrees Celcius.
The temperature goes like: 79, 78,76,73, 70, 76, 74, 71, 68, 71 So it goes down and up but goes down in the long run. In my head, I was thinking, I just turned on the computer, it took 30 seconds to boot, theres no way it starts off at 79 degrees. So I went to bios to see the temperature, (after the CPU cooled down) it starts at 66 degrees and moves up to 79 degrees in about a minute, and it stays there.
I've touched the heatsink to see if the temperature is really true, at 79 degrees my finger shouldn't be able to hold onto the heatsink for a long time. I was able to put my finger on it, and hold it there without any issues.
It felt like 40 degrees to me when I did that. So I'm wondering what's causing the wrong temperature read?
- I've replugged the heatsink and the thermal paste is newly stuck on there (pea sized).
yep completely normal what your seeing is the sensor reporting every couple seconds and temps do flutuate
Not 100% sure if it's normal, I hear the fan change speed dramatically every 3 seconds because of the temperature going from 38 down to 28 and repeat every 3 seconds (takes 3 seconds for the temperature change) Theres like almost no way the temperature changes so fast every 3 seconds from just browsing websites?
Just Google videos of people using hwmonitor and you will see all of them jumping the cooling system on a cpu is not like a car it doesn't have this advanced type of cooling so it's reactive gets hot fan goes up cools fan down it is never really steady.
