How to read coretemp Tags: CPUs Processors Product Last response: November 24, 2010 5:12 PM in CPUs Share DevjiroTalk November 24, 2010 5:06:22 PM Hello. I have an AMD Athlon II X2 Regor 240 Processor running at the stock 2.8GHz. (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...) Now, I have a cheap aftermarket cooler on it... A rosewill rcx z-1 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...) This isn't exactly a hot running processor, but the temps I am getting seem to be way too cool, and I was wondering if I were reading them wrong. Idling CoreTemp reads around 21c for both cores. After prime95 for about 9 hours, it read about 28c. 28c after 9hrs of Prime95? Even if this is a 65w CPU, that seems way too low. So, what am I doing wrong?
