My CPU is EXTREMELY hotter than the CPU Cores Tags: CPUs Cooler Master Last response: January 30, 2011 11:42 AM in CPUs Share celtics999 January 30, 2011 2:59:22 AM I am running on an i5-2500k with a CoolerMaster 212+ heatsink. Overclocked to 4.5 ghz. I downloaded everest and coretemp and I am getting somewhat similar readings however the top number on everest is at 123 C but the cores are seemingly safe temps. What is that top number? Is it something to be concerned about? Which program is a more accurate program? Sorry for the multiple questions! Thanks!

Go into bios and look at the temps. m 0 l amjay1985 January 30, 2011 6:31:42 AM Yeah... trust the bios m 0 l Related resources Cpu package temperature hotter than individual cores? - Forum CPU much hotter than Cores - Forum Cores 10°C hotter than CPU all the time - Forum CPU and CORE hotter than everything else? - Forum CPU Temp 15-20 Degrees Hotter than Core Temperature? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

I'd trust the core temps, which are very good. m 0 l Baralis a b à CPUs January 30, 2011 7:07:46 AM It could be a faulty sensor. I have a south bridge temp sensor on my motherboard that has never read correctly. It always shows my SB temp at 128C. m 0 l oc_mania a b à CPUs January 30, 2011 11:42:51 AM Your sensor is reading wrong CPU temps.. Ive seen it before on a friend`s PC on an asus mobo and same as you it showed high CPU temps (but they were 100*C ) and still showed low core temps (~30*C). m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
