Default Real Temp or Core Temp or Ai Suite

Just built my i7 920 System
cooling the i7 with Corsair H50 water..
Now Real Temp and Core Temp show a max temp of 55-56 Degrees Primeing for hours..
Asus AI Suite shows a max temp of 65-66 Degrees primeing for hours..
Which one is correct, all programs are default settings no touching tjmax or anything..
I'm assuming those temps are good.?
Thank You

Realtemp is what I would trust, especially if it's reading the same as coretemp. Those are generally the most accurate programs..

I have the same motherboard as you, and RealTemp is most accurate for me. Plus at stock speeds, you shouldn't be seeing anything in mid 60's.. at 100% load at 3.8Ghz I'm just hitting 70c on air.
And yes those temps are okay. You've got lots of headroom coming out of the 50's..

Thanks Jake_HT...
Those temps are running Prime95 like it says..
at stock my temps are only 36-40 at idle
I am going to start OC'ing but I want to install Windows 7 first..
Any tips for OC'ing have you raised cpu voltage at all or ram voltage?

Guys you are Canadians so you should use RealTemp.
For me RealTemp is THE monitoring software for Intel CPU's (and I don't say that only because I'm one of Kevin's beta testers ).

This is my first intel so bare with me here, are you saying my machine idling 40 and hitting 62 max under load @ 4.2ghz on my i5 is normal? Ive yet to run into a single problem with my setup and overclock, i just thought the temps were a bit on the high side.

Nope, it's not normal, it's perfect.
Relax and enjoy your rig.

Thats a kick in the teeth lol, i just blew about 200 on my watercooling kit to try and bring the temps down a bit further.That just means I can OC this chip a whole lot more then.

Man, just not to say same things again I've made a post here and I was seconded by Kevin (RealTemp author).
Maybe so you'll be less worried by Intel temps.
