So i recently built my new desktop and have been stress testing the cpu. I monitor the temps through CoreTemp and HWMonitor. During the Stress test's the temps are around 60 but every 10-30 seconds it spikes to 80 than drops back to 60. Is this a glitch with the software/temp sensor or is it possible a poor installation on my part?
Water cooled. I had it at 4.8 but now dropped to the preset 4.6ghz. My temps seem normal now without any spikes but i was wondering why the Asus cpu temp is so much different from the HWmontior and CoreTemp. My theory about the possible spike is that there were some left over air bubbles in my loop that were possible causing the consistent spikes.
