Ahh okay then. I do not know much about CPU's (except that they can be expensive and fragile) but that all looks fine to me.

Others are free to throw in their opinions, as I'm sure someone else could be of better help.

Most of the 920 info is relevant to the 940 (it's essentially the same chip) same chip

If anything, the max temps on the cores look hot, was that after the sensor movement test only? Is it stock cooling as well?

That max temp of 99C IS hot. I think i7s will start shutting off processes at 105C so you need a cooler. That is my opinion. The idle temp is okay.

Did you install it yourself? You might want to double check that all the four pins are firmly in place, although all the temps are close to each other indicting it's probably in place correctly.

Since Real Temp uses P95 to test sensor movement, it will be higher than you would normally see in everyday usage. Plus you probably still have Turbo/HT enabled which will push the temps up even higher.

If your ambient temperature is high where you are, that also has an impact on temps.

Replacing the stock cooling is a good idea, especially if you plan to overclock.


As it is, it's within the 'safe' range although it is very close to being thermally throttled.
