Accuracy of CPU-Z voltage vs core temp's Tags: CPUs Core Temp Overclocking Last response: October 17, 2012 11:15 AM in Overclocking Share thexalchemist October 16, 2012 1:05:02 PM So I was running both CPU-Z and Core Temp at the same time while doing a Prime test and they both had different voltages. My 2500k is OCed to 4.5. CPU-Z reads: 1.26 Core Temp reads: 1.36 Does anybody know which one is more accurate?

Whichever reflects that is the correct one. m 0 l DJDeCiBeL a c 283 à CPUs a c 110 K Overclocking October 16, 2012 7:13:31 PM thexalchemist said:So I was running both CPU-Z and Core Temp at the same time while doing a Prime test and they both had different voltages.

CPU-Z is showing you the real voltage. m 0 l Related resources Core Temp vs Intel TAT accuracy - Forum Please help! - Bios cpu voltage vs CPUZ core voltage?? - Forum Core Temp program accuracy ? - Forum High core voltage on CPU-Z - Forum UPDATED - Real temp vs Asus bios temp accuracy - NEW INFO - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Why not? m 0 l evilqueens October 17, 2012 6:33:25 AM thexalchemist said:Why not? These programs are not meant to be run in tandem. Essentially, you should only ever have one monitoring program open at a given time to ensure reliability of the readings. I'm assuming this is because they are polling the same sensors to get their measurements, and having multiple programs do this greatly increases the chances of inaccurate readings for either program. m 0 l jemm a b à CPUs a b K Overclocking October 17, 2012 11:15:48 AM Try to ran each program at time, simulating the same environment, and see if they got the different readings. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
