Solved CPU temperature 112C Tags: CPUs Temperature Last response: March 16, 2012 9:56 PM in CPUs Share slapnut63 March 4, 2012 8:16:47 PM Hi, 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)?

The computer would have shut down well before it hit 112 C Share COLGeek a c 157 à CPUs March 5, 2012 2:05:19 AM 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? m 0 l Related resources CPU Temperature Fluctuating, Even When Idle? - Forum cpu temperature ? - Forum CPU & GPU Temperature Question - Forum cpu temperature help - Forum Unusual CPU temperature - Forum Can't find your answer ?

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 m 0 l slapnut63 March 6, 2012 12:44:43 AM Great!
