False CPU temperature Tags: CPUs Corsair Temperature Overclocking Last response: November 3, 2011 6:43 PM in Overclocking Share meskis1995 November 3, 2011 6:16:35 PM I have 2 computers: 1. 2600k, maximus iv gene-z and corsair h80 2. 2600k p8z68-v, corsair h100. Both of them show false CPU temp in BIOS. It says about 24 degrees CPU and 27 degrees motherboard when overclocked to 4.5 GHz. I think it's impossible. What's happining?

Try downloading a temperature monitoring program, run Prime95- and check your temps again. Edit: Run Prime 95 for about 1 hour. Then check temperatures at the end. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
