Windows 7: CPU temperature inaccurate?

CPU temperature inaccurate?

When I use programs such as Speccy or Core Temp, it will tell me that my pc is cooler than the room temperature. Is there any way to fix this? I am running the latest Bios from HP. My pc has done this ever since it was new.

I use SIW by Gabriel Topala and it works perfect and offers all the information one could hope for.

Is there a free version? The thing is is that it isn't only one program that is doing this, but it is multiple programs doing this.

Yes...your CPU and GPU temps will be lower than your rooms ambient temperature. That's because of the fans...that's what they are designed to do. If your temps are higher than your room temp...then there is a definite cooling problem with your system.

My room temp is between 70 and 72 degrees and my CPU and GPU temps are cool and steady at 35 and 40 degrees respectively.

Fans circulate air. They don't have coolent in them or cold liquids or anything that could make it cooler than room temp.

You might want to get your understanding of Celsius and Fahrenheit sorted out.
