CPU Temp bug (or me not understanding) (Asus P9X79)


Recommended Posts

Updated to Extreme 5.60.3700 


Prior to this, my CPU temp (which has huge coolers on it) when web browsing etc never went above 40C


Now as I type this, its showing as 90C


The 4 CPU cores are under 35C


I've just noticed a CPU Package option which seems to show more what the old CPU temp showed, that's showing 35C, which I've now enabled on my OSD


My CPU Temp shouldn't be around 90C when almost idle, is this a bug, or is it reporting something different and the CPU package is the actual temp?  I'm confused :)

Many thanks

Hmm, was about to reboot and see what BIOS temp says, when I clicked reboot, a message saying WIndows updates have been instaled appeared (I hate WIndows 10 doing this).


Anyway, booted into BIOS and CPU temps were as expected.


Booted back into windows and temp now seems to be displaying correctly (see attached)


Whether this was a glitch in your program that a reboot cured or something to do with the windows update that was installing in the background, don't know, probably the win update.


many thanks
