Difference in cpu core temperature Tags: CPUs Core Temperature Last response: May 17, 2010 6:31 PM in CPUs Share Anonymous CPUs Authority May 17, 2010 5:44:32 PM Hello, I wonder about the temperature difference between the two cores of my AMD X2 CPU. The first one is 50C and the second one has 70C More about : difference cpu core temperature | E-mail me updates | Report abuse Register or log in to remove wolfram23 CPUs Master May 17, 2010 5:52:14 PM That's a pretty significant difference. What were you using to test them? If using a proper burn test like Prime95 they shouldn't be more than 10C off, usually less. I got mine to withing 4-5C across 4 cores after extensive CPU and HS lapping. | Report abuse arterius2 May 17, 2010 5:56:17 PM hmm... i thought the AMD CPU's only show one core temperature, how are you seeing two? what CPU do you have? are you sure the 70C isnt your actual CPU temp and the 50C being the MB/Case temp? | Report abuse wolfram23 CPUs Master May 17, 2010 5:59:07 PM arterius2 said:hmm... i thought the AMD CPU's only show one core temperature, how are you seeing two? what CPU do you have? are you sure the 70C isnt your actual CPU temp and the 50C being the MB/Case temp? Ah that could be it! Or the 50C is the "socket temp" I know for my CPU in HWMonitor and SpeedFan there's the core temps and then the CPU temp which is always significantly lower. | Report abuse Related ressources What is the difference between core temperature and CPU temperature ? - Forum Core Temperature Difference - Forum Just upgraded CPU cooler: No temperature difference ... - Forum Core 2 Duo Tcase - Tjunction temperature difference problem - Forum Temperature difference : heatsink & cpu - Forum Ask the community Publish Anonymous CPUs Authority May 17, 2010 5:59:07 PM I use the SpeedFan 4.33 utility.

Now it says almost 50C at both cores, although I suppose this is not a good temperature... | Report abuse arterius2 May 17, 2010 6:31:19 PM if thats your idle temps... yes its a bit high depending on what CPU you have, the new AMD phenom II's are cool running, so if you idle at 50C, then you are cutting it close, as temps under heavy load would probably shoot over 70-80 | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>Difference in cpu core temperature> Related ressources: ForumCPU Temp 15-20 Degrees Hotter than Core Temperature ?
