Solved Intel Core i7 -2600k 3.4 Ghz Tags: CPUs Intel i7 Intel Last response: July 10, 2011 1:29 PM in CPUs Share Matt42683 July 9, 2011 9:11:25 PM I just finished a new build today and I'm having some CPU temperature issues. I'm using an Intel Core i7 2600k 3.4 ghz processor on a Asus P8z68-v pro motherboard. When I am looking at the CPU temp in BIOS it says its 60 degrees celcius. However when I use a Windows program like CoreTemp or the program that came with my Asus motherboard, it says that it is 34 degrees celcius. I am using the stock heatsink that came with the processor with Arctic Fox Matrix Thermal paste. Anyone have any ideas which reading I should use? I just want to make sure that the cpu temp is ok.

You need to wait until Windows is loaded for the CPU to be throttled down. Matt42683 July 9, 2011 9:46:16 PM Awesome. I was thinking it would be the opposite and the cpu would be idle in BIOS.
