So I'm a little confused about temp readings. I decided to raise my multiplier to 18 for a 3.6ghz. I started watching my temps in AOD which are the core temps I believe and they were around 59c while gaming some times 60-61c at idle the vary from 40c to 45c. So I dropped the multiplier back down to 16 and the temps are roughly the same which seems kind of high. So I pulled up asus pc probe II and te CPU temp reads 33. Now my question is, is the core temp max 62c or the CPU temp? And which can I trust more for an accurate reading. I have an antec 1200 case so I have excellent airflow. In using the stock hsf so I know its not the best but like I said the temps are about the same oc v not. Now if pc probe temps are more true then I know I'm well under the max op temp but if aod is then in pushing it even with stock settings. Can someone please give me a quick lesson lol it will be much appriciated. Thanks
I was looking through my bios last night and noticed my CPU voltage was on auto and running around 1.47v I manually set it to 1.350 and ran the aod stability test and temps stayed at 55c so that's an improvement. Still concerned about the idle temps running between 40-45c seems like it should be lower. When I look at the hardware monitor in the bios it says ~33c. Once I'm in windows I pull up cpuz hwmonitor and in back at ~42c at idle.
