Hi guys, and girls..
Reading the STICKY about CPU Temps reading, I now have some doubts.
I read all the posts followed from the link here:
that is where the STICKY stands for, and placed the statement from AMD about the "correct" way to read the CPU Temps.
Now, it states this:
"Concerning your question regarding the temperatures with your processor. (1090) the maximum temperature threshold is 62 Celsius which set for the internal die (core) temperature of the chip. The core temperatures have an equational offset to determine temperature which equalizes at about 45 Celsius thus giving you more accurate readings at peak temperatures. The hindrance in this is the sub ambient idle temperature readings you speak of.
The silicon and adhesives used in manufacturing these processors has a peak temperature rating of 97+ Celsius before any form of degradation will take place. The processor also has a thermal shut off safe guard in place that shuts the processor down at 90 Celsius.
The Cpu temperature is read form a sensor embedded within the socket of your motherboard causing about a 7-10 Celsius variance form the actual Cpu temperature, which may be what you are reading about on the net.
I hope I was able to answer your questions, If you have any more inquiries don't hesitate to contact us."
Well, as some here knows, I live in the Caribbean, so my ambient temps can be as high as 35ºC any given day of the year, and with my 955 OCed and playing hours, Core Temp (the software) says that my highest temp are 61-62ºC at some point, not constantly.
The point is: since appears to be a difference between the actual CPU temp and the cores temp, which software gives the more accurated read of it?. Are those 60ish degrees real, or it's less than that??..
Which read must be considered as the one to take in count?. CPU temp, or core temp?. Or they're the same, and I'm confused?.
"As long as your core temperature has not exceeded the high side of the 60 degree mark for extended periods of time you should be ok. 62 degrees holds a generous safety net to begin with."
This means that the CPU temp could be even more than those 62ºC without suffering a shutdown, or any other catastrofic side effect??.. Because a few days back, one of my fan from the H80 decided to stop working while I was playing, and when I finished my session, CoreTemp showed that the max temp were 65ºC.. .. And no shutdown at all..
Since the CPU and Game forums are combined now, please, if any of the gurus can bring some light to my mind, would be very much apreciated. Maybe I have no idea about what just wrote, but any input would be nice..
