Go with real temp just to be safe. It's the highest.
There is a way to figure out the temp numbers but I don't know how.
Yeah i would say real temp as well
Everest has always been right on the money for me according to my BIOS. So I stick with that. Overall temp is most important. Not the temp of each individual core.
Not according to Intel
Add the FIRST numbers in temperature and distance to TJ max and that's your "set TJ max" settings. Mine is 100.
I don't understand you..
The numbers are constantly changing, and I noticed thanks to you that
my coretemp's max is 95 whereas the realtemp's is 100.
And in Everest it's just on auto and I can't seem to check what it is set to.
Cant really do that as it depends what the software has set TJmax as.
95 is the real spec from intel, though 100 is closer to the real IHS temp, as you lose ~5 in the transfer between the die and IHS.
IMO Realtemp is the most accurate for current Intel Core based CPUs.
Aight, guys, then I'll just stick with TJmax 100 real temp
If you set the tjmax on everest,it shows the same temps as realtemp,and shows on the G15 scren too....bonus.
Yes, it worked. But what is G15?

Personally I watch Distance to TJMax instead of actual temp readings. ATM my Q6600 stays about 42-45 below TJMax on the heaviest of loads (stress test, crunching @ 100%), and usually around 55 below TJMax while gaming at it's current OC. CPU temps read way too low for me to believe them, if I did my CPU would hit about 36-38C load in Everest/Asus AI/Bios. Which is fine, but for me reading the cores is more important for preference, and know that I prefer to keep max of 30C to TJMax on an OC has kept me safe and stable. To each their own, but for me this method works very well.
Oohhhhh the keyboarrd, so it shows there
That's actually a good idea too, I try to keep my temp under 70 on max.
Right now I'm fine, with prime I get no higher than 55~56
what im scratching my head about is..
how do you guys know realtemp is better without knowing what CPU he has?
His sig says its an Old school C2D E6750 to be exact... so i would think coretemp was the better program in his case.
Really? i wouldnt think so since unclewebb wrote this program more for yorkfields and wolfdales when it first came out and not conroes, which the OP has.
My vote is coretemp, because coretemp has never failed me when i was overclocking C2D. Infact most standards with your cpu was conducted on coretemp, so i would go with the original.
Realtemp showed 32c and coretemp showed 27c,so which is the closest for my cpu then?
Whats the BIOS say?
It doesent matter when the software was written, just what the assumed tjmax is.
yeah true, but coretemp would of had the true tjmax a long time b4 realtemp is what im trying to say.
IMO i use both since for the most part they do exactly the same thing, though Realtemp picks up GPU, and display core usage wich is nice as well.
real temp last version
