I've read through the threads looking for acceptable temps, and ran across Intel Thermal Analysis Tool. I haven't had a chance to use it on my PC (E6300) at home to test. Anyone else use this tool?

Seems pretty cool, you can use it to put the Core's at different loads to test stability and temps.

Being that it's from Intel, it would seem to be the most accurate?
Some people said it reported thier processor type wrong though???

I had bad luck with core temp, reporting my idle temps in the 40's. Using easy tune, speed fan, and nios all report idle in the low 30's. Core temp seems to run 8-10c hotter.

Mine does the same thing, EasyTune says 38C and TAT says 48C, which is right?

I got the impression that they read temps from different spots from XS.

Well when you have 3 porgrams telling the same temp, and one is report temps 10c higher, i think ill take what the majority say it is.

eeasytune read from Mobo senser and coretemp reads from inside the CPU so of corse coretemp is guna be hotter

Wusy, quick question.

Should I worry about the core temperature readings or just stick with the ASUS Probe readings?

on full load with stock fan @ 2700RPM, TAT and Core Temp record my CPU maxing out at 70C when ASUS Probe registers 50C. On idle, ASUS reports 27C and TAT and Core Temp report 43C.... both of these are measurements with speedstep and C1E enabled.

Core Temp and TAT are making me think I need to buy an aftermarket CPU cooler. And I don't plan to overclock my CPU any time soon. Any advice?

TAT is not developed by Intel? Who made it? Why does it crash everytime I try to load it with my E6300? Thanks!

If you don't overclock you can run the chip as high temp as you want without risking shortening it's life at all.
It's what the built in thermal throttling are for and if you used RMClock while running dual Prime95 to check throttling you'll find none when CoreTemp is reporting 70C.

Good case flow with a decent case and the Intel stock HSF does what it's suppose to do.

For your delta of 27C that's perfectly fine at stock speed.


Core Temp, TAT, and Everest read 43C/44C and A$$ Probe read 27C on idle, so the detla would be 16. The inside looks like this:



You would think that this would be enough air flow!!!!

*sighs*

I think I'm just going to go ahead and order Arctic Freezer 7 Pro and the Thermaltake CL-C0034 for the NB and SB. What do you think Wusy?

That's because coretemp and tat get the temperature from the CPU sensor inside<< the CPU whereas the rest get from the MB sensor UNDER the CPU....

To Josh_27, ocnewb, FunYun, GigabyteRules, Eurasianman, Blown_65 and lariva, to understand thermal relationships, and learn how to uniformly test, accurately calibrate and properly monitor your temperatures, please read the Sticky: Core 2 Duo Temperature Guide http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/221745-29-core-temper...

Hope this helps,

I will be honest CompuTronix, I use to think you where crazy the way you continuously told everyone to go to your tutorial. That was of course until actually grasped the information in it. If you read and understand it then there is very little reasoning as to why you will have to ask any other questions in regarding the judgement of C2D temperatures. I can't thank you enough for taking the time to put that together.

chadsxe, when I see threads in which users are struggling to decipher their temperatures by speculating, I have only 3 choices; ignore the thread and not help, spoon feed information already provided in the Guide, or simply recommend that users read the Guide. If that's crazy, then I'm certifiable.

Thanks for the compliment, and you're welcome.
