E8400 - Core Temps Lower than CPU Temp
This is my second E8400, and I am very familiar with the whole stuck DTS issue, but, this is different.
Running 490 X 9 for 4.4GHz with 1.36V. Sensors do not go below 42C. Not a problem. The problem is that they hardly ever go up at all. I am using water, ambient is around 18-20C. The CPU temp will hit 50C and still no movement from the Core Temps. I shut down the water pump to get the temps up. Core Temp finally rose, but was about 15C lower than the CPU Temp. I would love to believe that my temps were low enough that the DTS temps were accurate, but, based on what I saw with my last E8400, I don't think so. I can't remeber if my CPU Temp was in line with the Core Temps on the last one, as I never paid attention to them.
Any thoughts appreciated.
