Tcase higher than core temps? Tags: Heatsinks Core Overclocking Last response: August 29, 2009 12:59 AM in Overclocking Share omeglass August 25, 2009 5:08:38 AM With great interest I read http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/221745-29-sticky-core.... I have an interesting situation where tcase is reported as 10 to 15C higher than the core temps (Q9650). The difference stays more of less the same from idle to load. Any idea on what would cause that type of difference?

Calibration issue, faulty sensor, something else?

So we don't use it. omeglass August 25, 2009 6:03:11 PM Yet the previously linked article uses it and that article is considered a must read? randomizer a b K Overclocking August 25, 2009 11:44:08 PM Quote:CoreTemp reports your cpu core temps, not TJ or TC, and thats all thats important. So why are you worried about that? Why do you keep saying this? Tj is core temperature. bryanbee August 26, 2009 12:09:44 AM Make your case naked and get some good ventalation going see if that changes anything? omeglass August 26, 2009 5:08:26 AM bryanbee said:Make your case naked and get some good ventalation going see if that changes anything? Done...TC continues to be 10+ C above core temps. I'll reinstall the Ninja 2000 and see if that makes any difference. szymek August 26, 2009 4:38:52 PM simply put a thermometer in your case and see the real temp. overshocks August 26, 2009 6:00:30 PM Why are you worried about ur Tcase temp, it is said to be highly inaccurate, you should only worry about TJ..read some more guides to understand the concepts randomizer a b K Overclocking August 27, 2009 6:27:41 AM And you think Tjunction is accurate? Ha! razvanmihai August 27, 2009 1:54:33 PM I had the same problem with an Asus p5b motherboard. The solution was to enable PECI setting from BIOS. Not sure what kind of mb you have or if it has this setting (my current mb (a gigabyte) doesn't have it but it reads the temps fine by default) omeglass August 28, 2009 10:45:58 PM Looks like no PECI option in my bios. Does it go by another name? For the time being I'm ignoring the tcase temp and using core temps as the previous posters suggested. overshocks August 28, 2009 11:14:35 PM randomizer said:And you think Tjunction is accurate? Ha!
