Reading temperatures Tags: CPUs Last response: May 23, 2010 5:56 PM in CPUs Share raybob95 May 23, 2010 5:38:15 PM Hey, what program gives the most accurate temperature readings? I just had to re-do the heatsink on my i7 and I'm not sure if it's OK now or not. People say to keep it below 70C to be safe. I have MORE than adauate cooling. CPUID Hardware monitor tells me up to 90C on Core 1 and 85C on core 4. Yet, EasyTune6 and my BIOS tell me 70C. Am I OK or not?

If you're hitting 85-90ºC chances are real good that you don't have adequate cooling. m 0 l raybob95 May 23, 2010 5:56:56 PM delluser1 said:HW Monitor gives me the same readings as RealTemp, although it's a bit slower. If you're hitting 85-90ºC chances are real good that you don't have adequate cooling. Let's hope that the OCZ Freeze has a good break-in period. I've got an Antec 900 and XIGMATEK Dark Knight and I know I put it all on right. THat sounds like adaquate cooling. So either the 6 Drives and tons of PCI Cards and clogging up my case too much, or I just got a cheap i7. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
