Could this temperature reading be wrong? Tags: Heatsinks Temperature CPUs Overclocking Last response: November 18, 2009 2:46 AM in Overclocking Share msteele8820 November 18, 2009 12:59:41 AM I'm using SpeedFan to read the temp of my computer. The readings are as follows Temp 1: 27C Temp 2: 29C (Pretty sure this is my CPU) Temp 3: 79C Core: 21C Could that temp 3 be wrong? I've checked in BIOS and it said my CPU was around 27C and there was another reading of something else around 25C.

It can be disabled by clicking on "Configure" then unchecking Temp 3 under the "Temperatures" tab. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources: ForumWrong temperature readings?
