my CPU temperature in coretemp reads as like 45 Celsius average, which is somewhat high for my liking, as this is an idle temperature, and when all cores are in use the processor gets close to 60 celsius. i don't know if it's bad for it to run that high idle or not, but i feel as though it's probably not a really good thing.
the same reading in easytune 6, is 33 Celsius.
when i go into the bios, it usually reads the CPU temp as 36 Celsius.
i'm trying to figure out which temperature reading i should go by, the coretemp one, or the easytune one.
also, a few days ago, the CPU temps in coretemp were reading as low as 17 celsius average idle temperatures. i decided to attempt to overclock the processor, and did a small amount (one, two hundred MHz), but i changed all the values back to how they were when i purchased the processor.
i dont think that overclocking, and then turning back the values, would make the core run at a higher temperature, but i guess i don't really know a whole lot, and could be wrong.
any help with this issue would be appreciated.
