I just assembled my new computer and I installed a temperature monitoring program after installing Windows. My chip is a i5 760 2.8Ghz with the stock heat sink & fan, and nothing is overclocked.
Hmonitor gives me a reading of CPU 1 = 32C but CPU 2 = 87C!
I then installed a couple of different programs and got these results:
Core Temp shows all 4 core readings between 28C and 33C
SpeedFan shows all 4 core reading between 14C and 19C but also shows a AUX at 88C!
Should I be worried about any of these higher than normal readings? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks! I installed Asus Probe on my motherboard cd and checked the Bios and they both give me readings of +/- 40C. Is this a stable temperature for my cpu when it's idle? I thought it should be lower but I've never really monitored this kind of thing before.
Thanks for the quick response. When it's under load, it seems to vary between high 40's to low 60's. Asus probe has a default setting to set the alarm at 60C which is now going off every time I load up a game. I'm not sure how accurate it is because it gets up to 62C and then drops 10C about 5 seconds later and repeats. Do you think this is ok? There's no chance of anything melting is there? Thanks again for the input!
