Windows 7: CPU temperature inaccurate?

My last post wasn't supposed to be smart-offish or anything. I was just simply stating facts.

That's part of why I was asking for a screenshot; wanting to make sure it wasn't simply a problem of C vs. F.

Fans/fins and such merely dissipate heat, they cannot get you to below ambient temp. To get below ambient you would have to have some sort of active cooling (ie, evaporative).

I think I figured out why I am getting cooler temperatures. There is an ac vent in my roon that is angled at my computer area. Therefore, it is able to bring cooler than room temperature air to that area.

Still not it ....

Celcius appears lower but in Fahrenheit it is alot higher 30c is the equivilent of 80f

yes if you have a AC it does effect room temp and ambient pc temps but most of the time

If you are reading from a Celcius point Lower is defenitly better then higher

A pc running 70-135 F is a winner and wouldn't want to change it and i doubt you could get too much lower then those temps unless your in Antartica

I have been converting the Celsius readings to Fahrenheit.

What are the temps you been getting then and what is the TJ max your cpu supports ?

you have Cool and quiet enabled

I can already tell if you took that setting off the c&c the cpu would be much hotter not to mention the fact that your CPU downclocks as well

All those will have a big impact on cpu temps ,Take the c&c off and you will see a change immediatly

Only have one CPU temp program open at a time, this is known to cause false reading....sometimes.
Did you adjust any settings in Core Temp?
Changing any settings can cause false readings. I have read many threads/forums (OC'ing forums) saying that making any adjustments are not recommended.

Try a couple different monitoring programs (one at a time) to see if the readings are close.
A couple to try:

As per Dave76
SIW, Speccy link here
HWInfo64

I think HWInfo is the most detailed but doesn't seem to appear in the free program list.
