Incorrect temps on i7-4770K (MSI Z87-GD65 Gaming)

Recommended Posts

I have yet to find a rhyme or reason but some times AIDA64 will decide to report my CPU temp as 40C.  Once it decides to do that, it will not change until I restart the PC (restarting AIDA64 doesn't fix this).  For example, it currently shows my CPU temp as 40C, however MSI Command Center shows it to be 27C.  Since it is currently at idle, the 27C reading is obviously correct.

 

What can I do to fix this?

What version of AIDA64 are you using, and which MSI motherboard do you have?


Thanks,

AIDA64 v4.30 follows the sensor registers layout specification provided by MSI for their LGA1150 boards.  In case it doesn't match MSI's own software, then either their software works incorrectly, or they failed to provide accurate information with us :(  BTW, does the CPU temperature seen in MSI's software happen to match any of the CPU-related temperature readings you can see on the Sensor page in AIDA64?  Like CPU Package, or any of the CPU cores?

Nothing matches up terribly well with what MSI Command Center reports.  All of the other CPU temps do increase when I stress test.  The actual CPU reading stays at 40C.  CPU Package and CPU IA Cores always report the same temps as each other any they are somewhat close to what MSI Command Center reports.  The core temps jump around too much to compare.  I don't know how to change the refresh rate for that.

 

Anything else I can test?

We've checked, and it seems MSI Command Center reports the CPU core temperature as CPU temperature.  So you can simply ignore the "CPU" temperature in AIDA64, and use the CPU Package or one of the core temperatures when stressing your system.
