Newbie confusion over sensor info (Dell Studio XPS 7100)


Recommended Posts


I have a Dell Studio XPS 7100 and I have looked at the sensor temperature readings and I am afraid that I don't quite get what is meant.

My confusion stems from the CPU reading being high (usually over 80 degrees C) with each of the 6 cores reading around 30-35 degrees C.

Is this normal, or is there anything I need to do.

I have had no errors or BSOD, etc - I'm just not 100% sure of what the readings mean.

I think I have attached a screenshot.

Do you have sensor readings in the BIOS Setup? If yes, then you can verify the CPU temperature there. I suspect the "CPU" temperature is an invalid reading on your motherboard, and either the "Motherboard" or "Aux" temperature may be the actual CPU temperature reading.
