using speedfan, all temps are in celcius

idle:
temp1: 41
temp2: 26
temp3: -2
core0: 32
core1: 32
core: 55
ambient: 41

full load:
temp1: 41
temp2: 32
temp3: -2
core0: 45
core1: 45
core: 55
ambient: 41

More about : temps high

Those temps seem perfectly fine (actually, a bit low for a stock cooler). I've heard of people getting much higher temps @ full load with the stock cooler.

???? You indicate ambient (Room Temp) = 41 C (106 F) !
If this is correct, and not a misprint, Then your Temp2, and core 1 & 2 are INCORRECT. Also stange that core (55C) did not change from idle to load.

Added - try an alternate temp program, recomment Real temp.

"ambient (Room Temp)"
that is not the room temp, the motherboard sensor report the air temp near the sensor( inside the pc case).

I am using an arctic freezer 7 pro for the CPU. everything else is stock.

"core" would be the GPU temp which was not tested while stressing the CPU.

That is the thing about speed fan. You can't just install it and expect the labels to be correct. That app is only telling you what it sees. You have to figure out what it sees, and I'm not stating that at the OP but anyone who doesn't understand that.

The temps listed are a typical list of just a fresh install. Basically:

Temp 1 and 2 are going to be the Tcase & Chipset temp. You would need perhaps the MB utility app to figure that one out.

Temp 3 is not really tied to anything, Speed Fan just senses something but what would be -2? :lol: 

Core0 and Core1 are the Tjunction temps or DTS sensors on the CPU cores themselves.

The core would be the GPU.

The ambient is the ambient temp of the video card. For Nvidia cards, when you click on configure button on Speed Fan, you will also see that info in the chip column.

Also can't remember if the 4.33 will have the correct max tjun temp to base the core temps correctly. That is one reason why I use core temp, in that situation.

where do you live geographically? Where I'm at in massachusetts it's starting to get hot out and I've noticed at least 7-8 increase of temperatures since winter time. With all the cooling I've got, it used to be mid to low 20c during dead of winter (ambient was like 65ish), now it's rising past 30c with ambient of 75...also doesnt help my computer is next to the window and hot sun. but yeah, also if your PC has been running for at lease a couple months, you might want to check the dust build up. Mine's a real dust collector; after I completely dusted it out the temps dropped a good 5 deg celcius....just something to check.

Thanks Grimmy, That will teach me to take verbage at face value.

Good alternate Read on temps.

drumr 1829. Concur on winter/summer temps. I'm seeing simular changes. Winter room temp 70 F, inside case temp - 75, Cores approx 32 C.
Current Room Temp 77 F, Inside Case 83 F Cores approx 39 C.
Inside Case temp is temp of air (after being pulled accross HDD's) about 2 inchs from CPU fan intake. (Have poorly designed cases, remove front reduces temps by 3 to 4 C.

Doh... Looks like Speed Fan has the 4.34 out now. Seems it now reads the tjunction max correctly, had to change my 15C offset setting. :lol:

hhhmm, those might be a *bit* high for a good cooler like that at stock speeds, but it's all relative to the room temperature. I got mine @ 3.6GHz using CNPS9700 and I get ~42C idle (I turned off C1E & Speed Step... was causing some issues, but temps would go down as low as 30C when it was on!) and 47C after 10 hours of small FFT Prime95.
