Real temp says one thing Core Temp another.

hi,

I just got my 2500k build together and water cooled. Temps as reported by Real temp are fine. Around 28 on idle and 45 load. Core Temp says the same but several times a day reports one or the other core is hot. Eventually all cores report 98C! This is even at idle. Meanwhile Real Temp reports around 35 max. Is Core Temp just a buggy program or is something going on with the CPU?

My cores read @ 1-2 C difference when both apps are run simultaneously.
Nothing i'm concerned about.
Your case is entirely different.
I'd dump and re-install them.

Basically mine do too, but once in a while core temp reports a spike to 98C. That, of course can't be right. I just wonder whats going on and has anybody else had this problem with CoreTemp?

Found this thread via Google just now. I have a 4 month-old(new) i5-2500K, not overclocked, on an MSI P67A-GD65. Cooler is a Noctua NH-U12P SE with two fans. Case is an Antec Three Hundred in standard layout; no extra fans added.

For (about 4) months Core Temp showed all things normal. However, since a few days now, it show first one, then a second, and then even all four cores going up to 98% Celcius, all in idle mode.

I installed Real Temp (ver3.60), and it reports nothing out of the ordinary while idle: 26-28° C and speed in idle is down to about 1.6 GHz.

Three people for whom "Core Temp" is behaving in the same way? I think we can be reassured it is not our "2500K"...

Perhaps a Windows update messed up "Core Temp"?

Good catch Dassie, Thanks.
