My System Specs

Default Which temperature to look at?

Okay, so I just started up my system with my new 1075T installed, but upon checking HWMonitor, I'm left with this:



Hopefully, you can see my predicament, but if not, my CPU temps read in HWMonitor are unbelievably low. So what I'm wondering is: are those the real temps of the processor, or is there another temp I need to look at when I'm overclocking? Any information is greatly appreciated.

remember amd has cool and quiet

download cpuid cpu-z to see what speed the cpu is running at
also are you using stock fan or not ?

also i went looking

found this thread

I hope it is an error.

Lol yeah, I figured it's an error. Been running this computer for 6 months now, and I have yet to find anything that hot. I think stuff would be melting at that temperature

But back on topic: Well, the reason I doubt those temperatures are accurate is because my GPU temps are way higher than it. Additionally, when I stress the system, the temperatures of my GPU's go up, which I assume means that the CPU is hotter than the GPU's, hence the increase in their temps.

I've been using TMPIN0 as my point of reference, and so far, it seems to be pretty accurate (30C idle, 47C load). Would you think that's it?

From what I have read on other forums your not the only person with this TMPIN2 issues on all there screen shots they have the same temps.
It just might be a HWMonitor issue.

It pretty much says the same thing as TMPIN0, so I guess I'll be using that as my point of reference. Seems a little high though for WC, but w/e.

TMPIN0 looks like CPU temp -\__could be reversed
TMPIN1 is probably ambient _/
TMPIN2 is most likely the actual internal Core temp. Basically means nothing, not all cpu/boards will report it.
