I am having a temperature problem in a new system.
It is an i5 2500 on an Asus P8H67 (onboard graphics used) with Scythe Mugen 2 cooler, 4GB ram.
Without load, all core temperatures are around 35° C, whereas the CPUTIN value reads around 90! I get the same results with different tools. The cooler fan runs at around 660 rpm.
When I start a stress test (IntelBurnTest), the core heats up to roundabout 60 degrees, the fan speeds up to around 1200 rpm, and the cputin value drops to around core temperature.
When I increase the fan speed in the Bios, the cputin value does not change.
I am puzzled, either all tools read a crappy value, or only very high fan speeds can produce some air flow that reaches whatever? I hardly believe the latter.
But by the way - the heat sink above the H67 chip gets quite hot - I burn my fingers when I touch it. Besides wondering about the moron who used a shiny blue aluminum piece instead of an actually working heat sink, I am wondering whether I shall take some action about it...!?
I too have the EXACT same problem with the same board and identical readings. My core temps around 35c and cputin at 90c. I have used several different programs and they all read out the same. It has to be a problem with the Asus p8h67 board sensors. I wish one of the great minds on this site would help us.
