My System Specs

Default HELP Q6600 @ 2.4 stock - Speedfan and Asus Probe alerts CPU @ 119*C

as the title says HELP Q6600 @ 2.4 stock - Speedfan and Asus Probe alerts CPU @ 119*C while gamming but core readings on speedfan report no more than 29-34*C, if my core reached 119*C shouldnt it self shut down??

what could be the problem? is it the reporting software? anyone have this issue?

Mobo temp reads under 30*C

Im at a loss here.

Run CoreTemp / RealTemp , and or Everest and get a proper Reading. I've never enjoyed SPeedfan, nor ASUS Probe.

Do that, and Run Prime95 stress test and see what you get for Temps.

Sounds like you are confusing Fermi temps with the CPU temps.





Sorry, i could'nt help myself. But yeah it sounds like an incorrect reading.

I agree, i prefer to use Real Temp or Everest as they seem to have the most accurate and consistent temperatures (as they'll usually mirror the temps from bios)

Temperatures from the BIOS and from ASUS' software are wrong. Temperatures from Everest, Speedfan, Hardware Monitor, etc. can be right or wrong depending on the CPU. If you want the most accurate readings, use Real Temp and nothing else. Download it, run it, and then tell us what your temperatures really are.
