Hello, I have a system based on a ASUS 99X Deluxe motherboard, with an Intel i7-5960X. Overclock around 4GHz, aiming on 7/24-duty with numbercrunching tasks (closed water-cooling). My goal is to keep the highest core temperature well under TJ-MAX, and I think TJ-MAX is 87 degree C for the Intel i7-5960X. I have now installed a licensed version of AIDA64 Business, version 5.20.3400, to calibrate the OC. My concern is that the CPU Package temperature read from AIDA64 is around 5 degrees higher than the highest core temperatures read from AIDA64 (8-cores in the CPU). I canâ€™t understand that and I wonder if the TJ-core measurements or the CPU package measurement in AIDA64 is incorrect. And how should the CPU package temperature be related to TJ-MAX? I attach two screenshots from AIDA64 during 100% CPU load based on my own FPU stress tasks. One figure shows the temperature graf, the other shows the temperature statistics. Regards Mike
