What's wrong with my H50 temperature

Recommended Posts

I recently upgraded from a Cooler Master Hyper 212 to a Corsair H50.

 

Here are the changes in temps:

 

Idle in BIOS

27c(CM212)/19c(H50)

 

Real Temp average

34c(CM212)/37c(H50)

 

The high/low on both coolers are nearly identical.

 

Now this is understandable for the CM212 since the difference is not much but for the H50, it is a big difference between the BIOS temp and the temp with Windows 7 loaded.

 

The two questions I have are

 

Why is there such a big difference in temperatures in the BIOS and on Windows 7 with the H50?

 

Why didn't my temperatures drop after upgrading to the H50 from the 212 (at least on Real Temp)?

 

ambient temp is at 24-25c

The temperature reported in the BIOS is not the same as the temperatures reported in RealTemp/SpeedFan for the physical cores.

 

On my MB Temp3 (as titled in SpeedFan) is the same as the BIOS CPU temperature, run a stress test to determine which of the SpeedFan Temp# is the matching BIOS CPU temperature.

 

It should be the only Temp# that rises and falls when switching from full load to no load.

 

On my MB the BIOS CPU temperature is always several degrees C below the corresponding CPU core temperatures as reported by RealTemp/SpeedFan.
