Temperature Discrepencies

Ok I'm not overclocking but I'm curious about this.

EVEREST shows these temps:

Motherboard: 45C (113F)
CPU: 23C (73F)
GPU 52C (126F)

CPUID doesn't even show a motherboard temp:

CPU: 61C (141F)
GPU: 51C (123F)

I'm wondering if CPUID is combining the Motherboard Temperature with the CPU temperature..
because the CPU temperature is pretty low in EVEREST.. and dangerously high in CPUID. This confuses the hell out of me and I don't know which is right. My computer is running fine and dandy.

and I don't know why my Motherboard is 45C in Everest.. that seems a little hot for idle?

I have one of those Liano Li cases where the CPU, hard drives, and motherboard are all seperated from eachother (love that case). CPU fan is stock.

This is Fricking annoying!! This is the second time today we have repeat of the exact same thread...

There's a ton of similar threads with all the information you need for that.

Geez... :sarcastic:

if CPU CoreTemp is accurate, then I might be in trouble at 61c.

or perhaps dual core's run hotter than singles?

Oh ok

ASUS P5N-D Motherboard
Dual Core Intel 2.4GHZ
Nvidia 9600GT PCI x16
4GB DDR2 800 RAM (Dual Channel)

I'm considering getting the Arctic Silver 5 paste and an ARctic Cooling Freezer Pro 7 Cpu cooler.
Also might get another 9600GT for SLI which might up the heat more.
 
I am guessing from specs, the CPU is an E6600. If the 61 C temperature is an idling temperature at stock speed, it is too high. You need to doublecheck your HSF installation. You should be able to run up to about 3.0 GHz with the stock Intel HSF.
