10C difference between coretemp & mobo reading Tags: Heatsinks Asus Core Temp Speedfan Intel Overclocking Last response: December 19, 2006 6:18 PM in Overclocking Share milnyckyj December 19, 2006 12:35:03 PM I'm using an intel c2d E6400, Asus P5B-E and the intel hsf, no overclock. I'm also running Core Temp, SpeedFan and the asus probe utility. The temps in Core Temp are around 36/54 idle/load. Speedfan and the asus utility read 45/62. Which one of these should I trust? Isn't 60C pushing the comfortable range for this cpu?

All other utilities suck. A core temp reading of 54°C is ok, and common for overclocked CPUs, but a little hot for stock speeds. Is the HSF seated correctly? The CPU will throttle back if it hits 85°C, so you are well within that margin. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
