Readings in HWMonitor

Well, after a lot of wasted time waiting for new boards (damn MSI!) I finally switched and got a Gigabyte 880GA-UD3H. So I've got my 1055t OC'd to 3.5 GHz and ran 10 passes of IBT on High stress level. Passed just fine w max temps of 40C on CPU.

Questions about HWMonitor:

1. My CPU VCORE shows a max of 3.31 V. Must be an error, right? My CPU would be fried if this were correct!

2. What do the TMPIN 0,1,2 read on this mobo? Temps are max of 27, 46, and 48 respectively.

Thanks for the advice!

  1. Temp 0 is probably your hard drive, temp 1 or 2 is the cpu/motherboard temp most likely. 40c is real cool for 100 percent stress on the cpu, i would expect something like that at idle, especially since your overclocked.

    The vcore is most likely 1.31, because you would have a fried cpu at 3.31
  2. I guess trial and error! Some posts say for cpu temp, mobo temp, hdd temp, nb, sb, case, etc! You get the idea. I may have to try lowering the multiplier on the CPU-NB only and see if it changes any of them.

    For the vcore, every other time I've run it, it's been a min of 1.38 and a max of 1.39 or 1.40. 3.31 was listed under the max.

    Up to 3.71 GHz now (265X14). Passed IBT on standard setting. Want to see how high I can go on FSB without raising vcore.

    I should have mentioned NOT the stock cooler. CM Hyper212+!

    One last thing: My RAM is rated for 1.65v but my mobo supplies 1.5v by default. Should I raise it to 1.65v in the bios? No trouble with it so far.
  3. Even with a good after market cooler, an overclocked 1055t shouldn't be at 40c at 100 percent load, that's way too cool. Have you run memtest or prime95 on blend. I wouldn't add voltage unless things aren't running stable. You most likely will have to enter the proper voltage for your ram, that's quite a bit less than they are rated at, but you never know.
  4. This is a 1055t, x6 processor. Max temp of 40c on IBT at 3.7GHz.

    I have run memtest86+ at stock voltage with no errors.

    Just started prime95 at 3.5GHz, 10 min so far. Max temp 37c.

    I have read that x6 processors had a problem with temp sensors, but most of that had to do with the first batches after they were released. Anyone know if this problem was fixed?

    On prime95, current temps are:

    TMPIN0=27C (I am assuming this is case temp)

    I am guessing that TMPIN2 is the mobo CPU temp since it does reflect about a 10c difference from the core temps in HWMonitor.

    So, CPU temp would be 47 to 48c. Sound closer to reality?
  5. I would try coretemp, because unless your in a freezer, it's almost impossible to have a temp of 37c on the cpu when prime loaded.

    47-48 on the cpu is a bit more realistic, with core temperatures being somewhere around 5 to 7 degrees hotter. That makes sense because in a normal room temperature of 22c you should be somewhere around 55 to 60c on the cores (100%load), give or take 3 to 5 degrees for installation of your fan and the actual room temperature.
  6. Coretemp also says 38c. Both programs also say 18c minimum (just after boot). I don't live in an igloo!!!

    So for now I'm just going to disregard those readings and rely on the TMPIN2 temperature. 30 minutes of prime95 and it has been steady at 49c for the last 15 minutes.

    I will also install Gigabyte's easy tune 6. This should tell me what these temps are in the OS. Doesn't do me any good to know when in the BIOS, there's no load!

    Yeah I would go with that, it puts you in the mid 50's under load which is reasonable.
  8. OK, so far I've got:

    TMPIN0 = System Temp. (Case temp)
    TMPIN1 = Mobo CPU temp.
    TMPIN2 = NB temp. (from various forums about Gigabyte boards)

    So from this, my actual CPU temp (in HWMonitor) was not 49c, it was 47c (I think!). I know it was a couple degrees cooler.

    So I'm going to go with about 50c, which gives me room for some more speed. Yay!
