Okay so I'm running speedfan and prime95 int orture test mode to keep an eye out on my temps. The first thing I notice is that in Speedfan my plain old "temp" reading is at 50c. My core's are both at 39c, temp one is at 40 and temp two is a 30c. Both hd's are at 30c. Now explain to me, is this just speedfan messing up? How is the "temp" at 50c when nothing else is? I'm still unsure of oc'ing if I can't even keep the temp's under load at 40c. With prime 95 running and a few other programs I'm at about 80 percent of my cpu usage. So can anyone help me understand?
PECI doesn't mess with your temps... mine is enabled and my temp readings are fine. Speedfan could be the cause. Try RMClock and see if you're happier with the temps it's reporting. I found it to be correct for my q6600.
Well it seems to be okay sorta now..I don't get it though. I'm gonna turn some BIOS settings off to prep it for overclocking so we'll see how it goes. TAT seems to be giving better numbers, and for some reason I can't even run Core Temp without my system rebooting. Ever time I run it, it's like it sends my board a reboot command..fishy.
