Hello,
I'm just curious, my ASUS AI Suite II reads my core temp at 61C and Core Temp is reading all 8 of the cores at 48-49C. Any idea why?
Edit: This is with iTunes, Chrome, WoW, Steam, and Skype all up. Without anything up, Core Temp reads at about 20C and the AI Suite reads it at about 40C

check the compatibility lists for both programs. I'd be more inclined to believe the software that came with the mobo though.

My CPU is on the compatibility list for the Core Temp and the ASUS suite has always read high as far as I can tell. I've got a heatsink on here that many reviews have stated the CPU temp being about where Core Temp is over what the Suite is giving me.
Edit: Cooler Master Hyper N520 CPU Cooler

Disabling turbo boost in the bios helps a great deal with temperatures. I recently got a 8120 for almost 1/2 off normal $. I first booted into windows with everything stock and got ridiculously high temperatures. After turning off turbo boost temps plummeted dramatically. Give it a go.

Disabling the turbo boost helped significantly, but now my computer has substandard performance. Any ideas on a cheap, but more effective cooling system?

Asus ai is motherboard socket temp, core temp is inside the cpu. Its absolutely normal to be 10-20 degrees different as the socket is farther from the heatsink. Even on water, core temp at 35, asus motherboard temp is still high 40s

So despite my AI temp reading high, Core Temp is giving me a more accurate reading of the CPU core itsself?

yep, there is no heatsink under the motherboard, if you were to take a full reading from top to bottom, the farther from the heatsink the warmer it will be. Its just the thermal sensor location.

one thing it does tell you tho is how well air flow is through the system itself. Without a fan near the cpu socket since I am water cooling, ASUS AI reported ~55c, with fan, ~48. Internal cpu temp was the same for both readings.

then if that is so i have the ga-990-ud3 fx 8150 enernax ets-tb, in battlefield 3 64 players caotic situations core temp is telling me that i go no higher than 54-59c BUT amd overdrive is telling me otherwise always 10-12c higher than core temp so by letting the fx boost on and letting it according to core temp get to around the 55-60 mark am i slowly cooking my chip... WORKS PERFECTLY BOOST DISABLED
