Oh that's good! It's been a really long time since I've put a machine together and I was unsure about these modern CPUs. I remember the AMD stock coolers not being so great back in the day, so I figured I'd use this until it dies or I decide I need a better one, but if those temps are decent I'm fine with this lol.
The temp in my apartment is like 65-70f... not exactly sure on that one, inside the case it's reading around 23 to 24c.
BIOS was actually saying that the CPU temp is 2 degrees hotter at idle. I'm not sure about load or prime95 load.
*edit - and I checked the core temps using Core Temp and Speedfan, both reading the same thing.
*edit again - I think i was reading the video card temps or the Hard Drive, because the the sensor I have in the case is reading at about 20-21c. It seems to make sense I guess lol. Anyway, Speedfan and Core Temp are still reading the CPU at 20-21c idle and BIOS is probably still 2 degrees higher.
Yep, I did check, and case temp is around room temp (sometimes dipping to 19c) and the temps at the cores themselves (not the socket temp) are exactly 20-24c at idle depending on if read in BIOS or software applications. I'm assuming BIOS is in fact correct, so I'm guessing load temps in prime95 would be around 49c. Thanks for your help
