Anyway to find out my CPU temps?

I bought a new PC for myself,

When I tryed to find out the temps, I couldnt...

Tryed Speedfan, Realtemp and Coretemp

It either shows the wrong temp or shows no temp at all...

Any help would be great and gratefull

I can see the temp in bios btw..., other than that, any other way?

Thanks
-Cee

I use rivatuner. On there it plots both GPU core temp and CPU temp. How do you know that the temps are incorrect just out of curiousity?

You're right. I was thinking of ambient temp. Sorry. Not exactly sure why your sensor is sending bad info. That's the only thing I can think of would be wrong. Those programs you used should do it.

Hi Cee,

Core Temp does work (I've just had it working on mine), however I notice that you have a quad core processor. See the following information here: Core Temp - How it works Note that it needs to be run with administrative privileges.

To check whether it is picking up data, enter the following command in an Elevated Command Prompt winsat formal

On my Phenom X3 I have had a terrible time finding a program. It depends on the sensor chip on the motherboard.

you might try Everest and SIW

i have a quad core and use everest, shows all 4 core temps also have the thermaltake front bay temp and fan controller with digital display, the temp difference between the 2 is about 3 degrees but most software temp controllers basically read what the bios says

Assuming this is the Crosshair III in your specs, what is the bios version? There have been 10 bios updates for that board since it was released, and a couple of them have to fans speeds/sensors, etc, as well as quite a few CPU updates. It is possible depending on which bios is on it now, your CPU may not be fully supported.

Also if you haven't give Asus Probe II a try. If it doesn't work then it is either a bios problem (and should be fixed with updating to the latest (1301)). Or there is a problem elsewhere with the board in general, and if that is the case I would look into contacting Asus and see what they have to say.

I updated the bios to the latest, doesn't work

The thermal sensor cable should be connected as I can see the CPU temp in BIOS.

So?

Help please

Thanks

Speedfan works for my Dell with dual quad cores. I'm running XP on that machine though.
