Well, i have a new e6850 and wanted to know what temperature everyone elses is idling at. I downloaded everest home edition to check the temp of mine without quitting to the bios, but i dont see a reading of cpu temp, just motherboard and hard drives.
Getting 32-34C on cpu at idle with 21-24c on cores. Using TAT 100% cpu at 49-51c with cores between 41-43c. Still do not understand why cpu is higher than core but assured by Intel tech. support this is normal.
Idle temp on cpu from bios and speedfan. Load temps from speedfan and TAT.
Stock my temps were 18c idle and about 40c under Orthos load. I have mine oc'd to 3.6 and now my temps are about 21c idle and about 45c under Orthos load. Temps are from CoreTemp.
WOW... so what is your ambient temp in F? At 18c, that's 64f in your room? I love to hear people claim that their idle temps are below ambient. I hate to ask, but just how the hell are you cooling that thing? I mean, even the 21c is only 70f (which is a heck of a lot more believable, albeit really low). You must have your AC turned hella low and blowing directly on your rig or something. I think that your temp sensors have to be off.
Well, I'm going by CoreTemp, so if that is wrong, them I'm wrong. Easy Tune (utility comes with my mobo) reports the temps at about 11c higher, but I've always heard that CoreTemp is the most reliable.
But I do live on the coast and it is always cool, even now in summer. My house doesn't even have AC; it never gets warmer than 78f to 80f in the house. I understand the skepticism because it doesn't make sense to have core temps lower than room ambient temps. But as I said, I'm just going by CoreTemp.
your temps are 15c too low using core temp. core temp incorrectly puts tjunction at 85c instead of 100c on ex50 cpus. I'm using an e6750 oc'd to 3.59 and coretemp is currently showing me at 19c on both cores in a room that is 23c. My tuniq tower is good but not quite that good! You can change coretemp to display offset from tjuction and it is accurate. For example, at my 19c display it would display 66c offset from tjunction. Since I know tjunction to be 100c, that gives me 34c.
Interesting stuff. I did think those temps were on the low side, especially after OC'ing. I changed that setting in CoreTemp and it is showing 63c now so I guess my temps are really 37c at idle. What would be the maximum temp you would want under load?
My E6750 idles at 18C and load is 40C while running at 3.6GHz and 1.47 volts.
On the HardOCP forums I mentioned my suspicion that the 85C tjunction reported by CoreTemp was incorrect and it should be 100C and thusly the temps are being reported 15C too load.
But others there insisted the tjunction is 85C, the CoreTemp load temps are correct and the say the reason my idle temps are below my ambient temps is because CoreTemp isn't accurate under 30C or something.
Even so, the load temps seem awfully low as well. But I gave up over there. Haha. I'm just glad to see I'm not the only person that thinks the temps are reading 15C too low.
are you looking at cpu or core temps? If core temps, add 15c to the reading. From reading other posts, it looks like Tjunction on the e6xx50 processors is 100c while most temp software is assuming 85c.
