My System Specs

Default Asus Probe II and Core Temp

I've just replaced my stock heatsink with a CoolIT Domino, and naturally I booted up some temperature probes to see how hot my processor is running at. I've looked around abit on Google, and the general trend seems to be CoreTemp reporting tempteratures a few degrees (or in some cases, 10+ degrees) hotter than the Asus Probe II measurement. However, my Probe is telling me I run 42 at idle, while CoreTemp tells me my 4 cores are between 34-38 degrees. When I go under 90-100% load, Asus Probe II tells me I run at 63 degrees, while CoreTemp tells me my cores are going at around 50-55 degrees. Even when I was using my stock heatsink, Probe seems to report temperatures 1 or 2 degrees above CoreTemp.

Anyone got a clue as to why this is the case?

I don't think its unusual to see something like that

Asus probe I have found not to be quite as accurate on some machines

I don't have it on this Intel so I can't check it

But for fun you could dl'd hardware monitor and see what its reporting

Also at idle you could look in cmos bios and see what its reporting and compare for idle

Thanks for the reply.

I went and downloaded Hardware Monitor. It seems to agree with the Asus Probe that my computer is at 44 idle, while CoreTemp still insists that my 4 cores are going at 34-38.

In RealTemp what temperatures do you have? Same as CoreTemp?
ASUS Probe shows you TCase which is calibrated by every MB manufacturer. What should interest you are your core temperatures because those are measured by on-die CPU sensors.

Actually, I've completely failed to read Hardware Monitor properly. I just realised that there are two values on Hardware Monitor: the CPU value agrees with Asus Probe at 44 degrees, while the CPU0 Core agrees with CoreTemp, and places my temp at 37 degrees. I've also went ahead and downloaded the RealTemp you've linked, and it agrees with CoreTemp for the temperature of all 4 cores.

Thanks alot!
