HW monitor - cpu @ 108'C? Tags: CPUs Monitors Last response: March 18, 2010 1:21 AM in CPUs Share Bluescreendeath a b à CPUs December 12, 2009 5:44:23 AM For some reason, HWmonitor reads my CPU temp as higher than the 4 core temps. When my cores are around 40'C, the CPU temp reads as 45'C. When running prime95 FFT, my cores max out around 57'C, but he CPU temp reads 108'C (226'F) HWMonitor glitching out after I installed a new HSF? This didn't happen with my old cooler (Mugen 2).

Can a sausage be 2x hotter than the barbeque? nope, but I find it annoying how that CPU temperature number is just always wrong...is it getting it from BIOS? Also, since I have two fans hooked up into the CPU-FAN slot, I'm assuming 1500RPM = 2x750 RPM, and 3000RPM = 2x1500 RPM? randomizer a b à CPUs December 13, 2009 12:27:15 AM The "CPU temp" hinges on BIOS calibrations which may or may not be completely off track. ComputTronix's temp guide would have shown you how to compensate for error (although I'm not sure if it could fix random spikes), but it's no longer here. gotcongee March 18, 2010 1:21:58 AM that reading is on the max colum. mean it may just a glich reading but the actual read for your cpu should be at Value colum.
