Hello friends.

I have a little problem :fou: 

I build new system for my self with the following specs: Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 and AMD Phenom x6 1090t with a Corsair H60.

I bios he said the cpu temp is idle average 36 but hardware monitor says now 27 en cpu temp says 24/25 which one can i trust :sarcastic: 

More about : temp cpu

Try different programs and watch for load temps not idle.. Do not expect a lot from those liquid coolers.

Try core temp, it should show roughly 5c hotter than bios.

ok coretemp says 24 when i reboot bios says 37

Bios is reporting the correct temp or at least the closest to correct. Not sure why the cores are reporting incorrectly, you could try a bios update, but that's a bit of a headache just to read cpu temperature. Another pretty good program is speedfan.

No speedfan sucks everyone said avoid that program

in bios is CPU temp and in software up and drop because ran at idle, try compare with other software temp
hwmonitor, AIDA or other

Ok coretemp en hardwaremonitor says during prime95 48C. I think thats good? its not yet over clocked.

BIOS temps will always be higher as the CPU cannot go into low-power idle mode until it boots fully into Windows.

:D  Ok how much can i go you think? 4 ghz?

4ghz .uumm ? Keep your temp below 60C when stress test just it. Don't over . If your temp over it , you need fix it, air flow and cpu cooler h60 (maybe rplace thermal paste)

above there 2 extra fans and 1 at the side from the case self + the in the front.

Going from bios to desktop idle isn't going to subtract 9c off the cpu temperature. He's still reading the temp wrong.

bios updating maybe?

have you tried Everest ?

Ok this is with aida64

so temps are right and your problem is solved ? ...

bios temps are closest to real temps....

It certainly can subtract 9ºC and far more.

As I said before, BIOS temps are always higher than Windows idle temps because the CPU cannot idle while in the BIOS. I know this for a fact. The CPU is running at its full speed in the BIOS, and it is common to see 60ºC in the BIOS on Sandy Bridge systems while the Windows idle is around 35ºC. (Yes, I know the OP doesn't have a Sandy Bridge CPU, but it's still true for AMD systems. The BIOS temp just won't get as high.)

The BIOS temp is accurate for a non-idle temp. The better your cooler, the better the BIOS temps will be -- but they will still be higher than Windows idle temps. The Windows programs are accurate for idle temps and load temps while in Windows.

So i saw just in bios 37C thats good ? during prime 95= 48C

In bios its not full load i guess like prime 95?

In the BIOS, the CPU is running at full speed with a light load.

And that Prime95 temp is at least acceptable. I don't know if it's good with that CPU and cooler combo because I don't keep track of AMD as much. I'm sure somebody here can tell you though.

Just don't worry about the BIOS temp -- it's not important like the Windows temps are.

I don't agree with that at all, so your basically saying in bios it's running 100 percent load as if in prime95 or equivalent. That would mean if I looked at my Tcase temp right now in Everest or even Asus probe it should be close in my bios. Not the case... The hottest I have seen in my bios is around 40c, in prime 95 I see 50+ tcase and around 60ish on the cores. No way bios fully loads the cores,no way.

Read my post again ... I specifically said the CPU runs at full speed with a light load.

Nowhere did I say full load. The CPU cannot idle in the BIOS, so it runs hotter.

It is perfectly normal, and has been happening since CPUs started automatically under-clocking and under-volting at idle.
