Windows 7: Reliable temps.?

Reliable temps.?

I've noticed strange temps in SpeedFan. Only 1 seems really weird, as I don't have a liquid nitrogen cooled PC.



Could I trust (any of) these temps?

it is probably a non-existant sensor that speedfan is trying to read. Since there isn't a sensor there it gives back a dummy value.

K thanks, juts one more thing.

My fan speeds look quite low, but I think I have no control over the speed. I cannot change it in BIOS, and I also can't chancge it with SpeedFan, and one other program which I can't remember.

Some motherboards/BIOS do not allow these types of modifications. the fan speed will probably change automatically when temps raise due to gaming and such.

One thing about your temps. Temp1, which is usually the CPU temp, seems a tad warm, but it may actually be something else. I think you have a Brisbane core Athlon, judging by the number (I have a 5000+ with the same core in my server), and they have a notorious core temp diode sensor bug, that doesn't read the core temp properly. You can't trust the core temp that most programs will give you. I've read on the AMD forums that you can often approximate by offsetting the core temp value by 23C, but that is not true with mine. Mine bounces all over the place and is completely unreliable.

Most ASUS boards have the CPU thermal sensor in reasonable proximity to the CPU itself, and it's usually accurate within a degree or two. Your fan speeds are rather low. Do you have Cool and Quiet enabled? If Temp1 is actually showing your CPU temp, that's quite high. I think you can safely ignore Temp2, as it doesn't seem to be attached to a sensor. It might be an idea to check in the configure\advanced tab in speedfan:

And make sure your offsets are at zero.

Also, can you post your CPU's Vcore Voltage? You can get that with CPUID. CPUID also makes a good hardware monitor that allows a comparison with Speedfan. Coretemp will give you a false reading because of the Brisbane core temp bug, but I would be interested to see what you get from CPUID's HWMonitor.
