My CPU is Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 oc @ 3,0GHz with Cooler Master Hyper UC HCA-F61-GP and i have installed temperature meter programs. Real Temp 3.0 version and Core Temp 0.99.8 version. I have mismatch in temperatures between the two programs. And now i wonder what program is more accurate? Please help.
There's always a difference between the two programs, and Core Temp always show less Celsius than Real Temp program!
For Real Temp v3.0 temperatures are #core1 = 47c #core2 = 49c
For Core Temp v0.99.8 temperatures are #core1 = 44c #core2 = 42c
Compare with BIOS, it will tell you which one is more accurate.
I was also thinking about it, but if i restart pc to enter bios, temperatures will drop, and i can't be sure again. Because no matter how fast i go through BIOS menu cpu cools down rapidly and i read temps around 32 Celsius! So from my experience this won't work, or at least it won't work for me. Anyway thanks rolli59 for trying to help!
I don't think so, but is there any program capable of reading BIOS informations from OS!?
If your board shipped with monitoring utility it would be the closest to the bios readings.
Good idea! I have ASUS P5KC (C for crossfire support, P35 chipset) and i have found cool SW on installation CD's. SW like Probe 2, AI Suite, Logo, and others. But i can't install them (no support for Win 7 only Vista)
I will download new ones from ASUS and then i will compare results and see what is the most accurate cpu temperature meter...
And another thing i found out about Core Temp, Real Temp and CPU-Z program.
They all show different values for current cpu frequency and multiplier AT IDLE OR MEDIUM LOAD ONLY! One shows ~2000 Mhz other ~2500 Mhz and ~2650 MHz! Just like the temperature problem with Real Temp and Core Temp! On max load there is no difference (3005,5 MHz at x9 multiplier) and all programs show same values.
