Corsair Link CPU Temps... Which one is right?


Recommended Posts

Hey all,


I just installed a H80i in my computer and I'm puzzled by the various temp readings...


Corsair Link gives me:


H80i Temp


i7-3820 Temp


And the ASUS monitor shows a CPU temp that matches none of the above...


The H80i Temp shows around 31-36 depending on load


The ASUSTeK CPU temp shows around 40-45 depending on load.


The i7-3820 Temp hangs around 41 at idle and then goes up to the mid 60s when hammering it with prime 95. It's an almost instantaneous rise when the test starts and the temp drops to normal with a second or two of turning the test off...


Can someone give me any pointers on how to find out what the relevant temperatures are and if I should be worried?


Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Thanks for taking the time to reply, but at this point I am not sure how to get the real CPU temp. Until adding the H80i I was relying on the ASUS monitor, but now I'm not sure what to make of it.


Is there a good tool for getting accurate CPU temp results?
