    This is his little program on his original post. Some1 download his exe and check if its safe. Unfortunately it crashed my system when i tried it.

    I feel bad for the OP, he think i'm here like the rest to force him to update his temp stats with my name on when I'm merely asking a simple question.

    OP you got it all wrong, i'm not here to get my name on your list, that list of your are confusing, like someone said making /xxxx/xxxx/xxxx/xxxx is confusing and put strain to the eyes.

    anyway i'm happy with my temp, i'll leave this thread as it was.

    Although I didn't specify this in the first post, I did later mention that I will not be checking if anyone who posted here has followed the instructions in the first post. This therefore means you can use ANY temp program you're comfortable with, including Everest. However, it seems like you're having some problems with Everest, since your temps stay the same at idle and load.
    The readme doesn't contain any system requirements info, but if you had googled "core temp", you'd have found the website with the system requirement info. Which can be found here.

    I know having the list like it is at the moment is quite confusing, and the absolute best way of putting this list up is in a table. Unfortunately, that means I'll have to look for a site, and actually update it, which takes that much more of my time, so this is the best I can come up with. Its relatively simple, meaning you can just look up your processors, and the last 2 numbers are the idle and load temps. And if you're interested in the other pieces of information on it, its there.

    At the moment, there are tons of programs which reads temps, and is specifically for that purpose. This one is recommended in a few other forums. I did not write it, and I'm linking it straight to its source, if there is a problem with the program itself, you'd have to talk to the programmers. If anyone else runs into problems running this program, I'll remove the link.

    This is where you're wrong. First of all the program I'm using cost $, its highly accurate, the temp for my video card on the ATI overdrive said its 53*c , same goes for Everest and its constant changing. Secondly you haven't even try out that program yet, the light version of Everest. Third your program is out of date; hence my PC crash only due to incompatible program that exe on current window to protect my system from further damage. Lastly my temp aren't always stay at 41c* its goes from 39 to 41*c. I should make it clear from the start, but than again you shouldn't just judge what i said nor what program I used unless you have experience with it.

    ok but its little to late and it doesn't matter, that program you linked is either incompatible with my system or its out of date.

    those list are fine, its all those / / / / are confusing, & pretty much everyone has the same idle temp and load temp as I do. All they need do is type their heat sink brand - idle temp and loading temp. For example for my PC:
    ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 64 for CPU: 39-41c* idle and load (awesome cpu cooler that never let me down)
    AC Accelero Pro Cooling Fan with Heatsink for my X1900xt 512 mb: idle 53*c and 63*c while heavy load (playing BF2142, Jade Empire etc)

    ty but no ty, i learn my lesson, not going to use cheap, out of date program no more. Again OP i'm not here to have my stats input into your OP. It was merely a test but in the end it cost me a BSOD -_-v

    Don't assume I didn't use Everest. I actually DID get the ultimate version to play around. Its not the latest version though, and I recently upgraded my comp, which required a format :S

    Its a great program, I loved it, gave me everything I needed to know. But my version gave conflicting temp readings with the other readers, I don't really know which would be the most accurate, in fact, I know for a fact that NOT A SINGLE software temp monitor would display accurate results. High school Physics is enough to reach that conclusion.

    Anyway, I'm not defending CoreTemp, just that unless there are more incidences, it could be just your comp having a bad day, or its incompatible with something or another on your comp. I'm recommending that everyone uses the same program, so there's less factors involved, but like I said over and over again, I don't care what you use to check your temps AS LONG AS you post everything I need in one thread, preferably in the order mentioned in the first post.

    Also, something like this is only of real value if ALOT of people post, so if you're just checked here and cannot find your processor temps, or your heatsink, or if you have found this useful, please post your temps, even if it is exactly the same, or very similar to another person's temps.

    Sorry but i have an asus board and i use asus probe and it's Manual advice.
    This can also be found in the bios.
    My temp is there in my Snapshot as OK.
    That answers your ?
    It's 22 C or 73 F at the moment.Thats :cool: Cool

    What is considered "too HOT" ?

    quote by your own word "Hmmm... Never used Everest as a way to determine temps, just too big and bulky for something so simple :p"

    You're full of it. ATI overdrive report to me that my video card temp were 53 while in idle, that same temp also report in Everest as in 53*c range as well when I compare the two.
    I know they're accurate because I'm using the best temp detection tool, not cheap unreliable one for my system. Even those tool aren't accurate as you claim, but at least I know they won't give me BSOD which force me to hard reset.

    You begin to sound like you don't have a clue on your own excuses. While you're also repeating what I said on the incompatible area. Worst of all , you never edited your post on warning about that CoreTemp might affect other XP PRO user. Again I'm NOT here to have my temp record on your silly thread, I'm here to ask a simple question as if my current temp are normal, which I also supply you with a sample screenshot of my current temp and NOT about Everest. All you need to do is said "that look fine buddy " was that so hard on your part? The stupidest part was why would you wanna criticizing what program I used? When we should focus on temp like you stated?

    I know my temp very well, as well as getting the best temp detection tools. My objective here was to test if you know what you're doing. Obviously the experience was disturbing

    It seems, however, that the program's accuracy is not as important as the sensors. It doesn't matter if Everest, ASUS Probe, SpeedFan, CoreTemp, etc., all tell you the same temp; if the sensor isn't accurate, it doesn't matter what the program says.

    I don't believe that there should be much, if any difference, whether somebody's using Everest or CoreTemp. It's just that you get more system info with Everest.

    Take it easy, guys ;)

    hey guys ; i apologize for over reacting about that BSOD incident =D

    i should just write it in a well manner precaution about that CoreTemp instead of ranting on the OP.

    My ultimate gaming PC is like a Ferrari to me. ^_^v

    PS. EVEREST Ultimate Edition won't show the user temp status if your is a trial version.

    IMO Everest is the best darn program I used to check on my friend PC to determine what video card he's using before getting an driver for his specific card. Being a heavy high end gamers, i rely it alot to check temp and when is time for system cleaning.

    CMH TechSpot Chancellor Topic Starter Posts: 2,039   +9

    zzz, I never said I was on a trial version.

    Btw, kitty500cat clarified something I said, programs don't matter if your sensor isn't accurate. And the sensor sure isn't accurate. For it to be, you'll have to personally calibrate it every time to take a temperature reading, and I must say I am 100% sure you have never calibrated your sensor. For that alone, I'll have to say even if 100 programs show the exact same temp, it is still inaccurate.

    I am just defending myself here, but when I said I never used Everest to determine temps, I never said I didn't use it to check temps. If I wanted to know my temps, I used different programs, but I used to have everest on, and it was handy to just use that for a rough reading. I use a different program mainly because thats what I've always been using, and changing programs just because the other can also show just isn't good science.

    Which means if you've always been using everest, keep using it.

    Its just that I personally believe that something made just for a specific reason will perform better than something thats not. I do realise its a very general statement, and probably not true in all cases, but it definately is in some cases. Maybe not this one.

    Also, I did say your temps were fine. And you quoted that as well, which I thought might have sounded sarcastic. That was just before your comp crashed, and all this happened.

    I might also add that I'm an XP Pro user. Just because it crashed on your comp doesn't mean its not compatible with XP Pro, or anything else your computer is running, which is why I'm not editing my first post, or warning anyone about possible complications of the program. I've mentioned it before, and I'll mention it again: a single incident may be from an accident, and does not warrant a warning. If it did, in the medical field, there will be absolutely no medications which does not come with the warning "May cause death or grevious injury", because for every drug out there, there would have been someone who died, or got seriously injured while using the drug. Doesn't mean that the drug was the cause, or had anything at all to do with it. Just because something hapened when the guy took the drug is no excuse that that was the cause.

    I hope all that didn't seem heated, because that wasn't my intention. I'm just trying to explain why nothing is accurate, and why I'm not taking much notice about your BSOD and CoreTemp.

    Just wondering, I feel like I know what I'm doing here. I've actually spend ALOT of time reading up stuff on cooling, I've actually messed around alot with cooling in respect to computers, and sometimes more. I don't claim I know everything, in fact, I want to state right now that I'm just probably just scratching the surface on the whole concept of cooling in computing.

    Before I continue, I want to say I won't take any offense to what you say (although I did about most of your points in the 2 longer posts), but I'd like to know why you think that I've got no idea about what I'm doing.

    Since you asked, i'll gladly answer :p

    1. you had to use cheap temp program that was unstable on other system, when Everest was the best, reliable and stable to do that kind of job (it got the best heat sensor). EVEREST Ultimate Edition won't let you see your temperature when its a trial version, that's where you had to use cheap program like CoreTemp.

    2. You criticized on the program i used to check for temp when my question were obviously pointing toward heat temp and NOT about what program I'm using.

    3. You stated EVEREST Ultimate Edition wasn't accurate enough for reading temp when the fact ITS. Even through you had used it, your probably was a trial version, and trial version DON"T show your current temp. There you had to resort in using freewares like CoreTemp.

    4. You keep on making a big deal when my question was easy as 1/2/3 to answer, and you keep on nagging about " I WON"T update my list for you" or "that program of yours isn't for that job) when I stated many time, that I'm here just to ask a simple question about temp.

    5. When I praised you, it was sincere yet you assumed it was sarcasm. You got everything wrong for your silly pride. Just because you post on this section often doesn't make you better than anyone here.

    again sry for the rant. my problem has been solved, so moving along)

    Well, Everest Ultimate (I have the full version) wouldn't read correctly my CPU temp.

    Coretemp and Speedfan read it correctly :)

    You're asking me to get everyone to pay for a premium program, so that we have a database of perfectly read temps?

    And I can see that you don't get the fact that no matter how good your program is, the hardware isn't adequate enough for a perfect reading.

    I'm sorry, but I think it is obvious that we're not thinking on the same level here. I think I'll just let it drop, before some admin comes along and locks this.

    I'm glad the praise was sincere, but "/crowd roars" just made it sound like sarcasm.

    Why does it seem like this guy works for Everest or something.
    Sounds pretty biased to me, unless you can get someone else on here to use those exact words to.

    Anyways, stop the fighting, lets use this thread for what its meant for.
    I know from experience, when I first built my system I was really careful with temps and I couldn't get a good feel for what I wanted without going through multiple threads looking for numbers. This could be a HUGE help to newcomers, so lets keep this going with just temps, no arguments. Take your Everest complaint somewhere else.

    It isn't confusing to read it as long as you read the beginning on how its supposed to be made.

    Thank you

    This thread has 482 hits, but only 12 temps.


    We need much more info than this. If you came in here to see if your temps are similar to other people's, you probably know your temps off by heart, and your cooling system, so just give it a post, and make this much more useful!

    Decided I want to resurrect this thread. I have had cause to look at it a couple of times in the last few days, and feel that we should give it another go, and try to get enough temps to make it a sticky.

    My temps haven't changed since last time... still:


    But hopefully we can get more temps (assuming CMH is willing to update the first post to accommodate the new temps that hopefully will be added) ;)

    Well the problem is probably all the people arguing back and forth scares off anyone who wants to add data, i agree it would be a great resource, and as for the comment a while back about case fans having no affect on cpu temps I would have to disagree for the past few days I've had the side of my case off and my temps have gone up by 6 degrees celcius idle and almost 15 under load, so surely they do make a difference.

    Well, summertime here and house temps are above winter temps in an effort to conserve resources by reducing air conditioning - lots of criteria that could be added to a database like CMH was attempting.

    Now have 22-24 C ambient (room), 31 mobo idle, 43 cpu, 35 load mobo, 60 cpu.
    Winter room is stable 20 C.

    I will update if there are posts, I'm not gonna bump this up myself. I've added a link to this on my nick, so hopefully we get more traffic here....

    Also, I might update the first post because I realised 100% load on Orthos gives a much lower reading than 100% load on TAT (My load was a whole 10C less with Orthos). Why this happens, I've got no idea. Will have to look for another program to load up the CPU (I have a few in mind, but I'll re-take a look at them before editing).

    Added my new chip in to the list as well.

    oh the joy of summer, i dont know my exact temps but my idle went up to around 32 [i only have two case fans, i had three before, i keep forgetting to put it back in haha]. Also I noticed the first hot day, after a good 2 hours of FEAR I could feel the front of my case was just burning up, but SpeedFan wasn't on my computer at the time and by the time I got it the temp went down haha.

    I have used everest and it works perfectly. I also tried core temp and it seems stable, but the Orthos program doesnt seem to do anything in the way of stressing my cpu. This thread should be only for posting TEMPS, not flaming each other on which program you use.

    CMH TechSpot Chancellor Topic Starter Posts: 2,039   +9

    Maybe we should just stick with Prime95. I will edit the first post again.

    edit: Prime 95 still doesn't seem to bring my comp's temps up as much as TAT will.... Can someone else check this out as well?
