Wrong core temp with Intel E8400...


Recommended Posts



I'm testing Aida64 v5.60.3782 Beta on old Asus machines (P5Q Deluxe and P5Q-E) using the same CPU (Intel E8400).

The min core temp appears limited to 36°C.

I mean the core temp can increase but never decrease under 36.

Is it a software bug?

No, it's not an AIDA64 bug. Intel DTS thermal solution (core temperature measurement) had major issues measuring low temperatures before the Intel Nehalem-class (Core i3/i5/i7) processors came out. The old Intel DTS, featured in your CPU, isn't capable of accurate temperature measurement below 50 Celsius. And it becomes even more inaccurate as the temperature gets closer to zero.
