CPU temperature 112C
Mar 4, 2012, 8:16 PM
I was wondering about the CPU (E8400 not OC) temperatures.
I'm using open hardware monitor to view the temperatures. I've installed a new heatsink a few days ago with thermal paste.
I turned it on and it was fine for a few days.
Today when I turned it on, the CPU temperature said 112 C and the core temps were at 28 to 35C and 34 to 34C.
I tried changing fan speeds higher, but that didn't do anything. So when I finally restarted, the temps showed 22C for CPU temperature and the cores remained the same.
So I guess my question is...was the temperature reading wrong? And can the temperature drop from 112 to 22 just with a restart (30 seconds between readings)?

Reading was wrong, likely due to some weird glitch. The computer would have shut down well before it hit 112 C

That temp is highly unlikely. How are you measuring your temps? Keep in mind that water boils at 100C. Could that temp have actually been 112F?

Yep reading is wrong.. I use both Asus AI Suite II and everest home edition to read the temperature.. Asus says cpu temp is 39 C and everest says it is 85 C. But temperature for each core is correct.. As COL said it may be Fahrenheit..
112F = 44.4C
