    CPU not showing temp in Open hardware monitor or core temp


    CPU not showing temp in Open hardware monitor or core temp

    Used to show ok, I am certain...In the BIOS when I boot the PC it shows ok approx 60-65oC

    But not in the aforementioned apps....cant think why

    Thanks

    Those programs are not reliable for AMD platform, This AMD OverDriveā„¢ Technology
    should give you much better look at what's going on. For temperatures look at "Temperature margin" Higher, the better at 10c or so it will start throttling like crazy. It also provides many more details than any other monitoring program.

    Core Temp has been the most reliable out of any, since the software writer has been keeping it updated, compared to other programs.

    I have never had any issues with Core Temp reporting proper temp's with AMD CPU's. Now there are some out there that may be newer CPU's, that the writer of Core Temp needs the logs from the program, in order to update.

    As long as the user is not doing anything unusual, Core Temp should be reporting the proper temps.

    The only thing that most users will not benefit from using the AMD Overdrive software, is that it is directed towards the gamers, not casual users.

    Now why would AMD Overdrive be for gamers, not casual or any other users ? It's much more detailed for troubleshooting and OCing purposes. It is also only AMD specific program. all of the rest are more geared toward Intel platform. There are also programs that come from parts manufacturers and are for specific makes of MB as well as GPUs.

    Hi
    I am certain I used to see the CPU temps with both these programs.....when i boot into the bios the temp is displayed perfectly, so I assume from this the sensor must be ok...the only change I have made....and it may have been after this issue i cant remember.. i turned off cpu parking as this is meant to improve performance.....no doubt someone here will yell me i shouldnt have done that and that it makes no difference LOL

    No, it CAN make difference, every split second it looses while unparking can make difference. It's always turned off when OCing or troubleshooting. In normal use with programs that don't have such load fluctuations like games is OK.
    Did you try AOD ?

    Hi
    No, not yet....using IPAD at moment, will turn the PC on a try....I have turned perking OFF....so will this affect temperature reporting ?
    I used a registry file to add the parking option within power options, it has a value 0-100% its current
    y at 100% so i assume this means no parking....am i correct ?
    I was told turning off parking can do no harm and will improve performance....is this wrong ? should i turn it back to normal ? would a setting of 0% be the normal parking option in power options ?

    sorry just want to be clear...

    My processors are always OCed to max, no power or other saving modes and running 24/7, as long as cooling is good, no problem. With core parking/unparking all the time voltage fluctuates too and with it temperature and other readings which are not always in sync and not instant either.
    AOD has logging too so you can see how everything was behaving over time. Don't have that cor parking for my processor but in CCC I set power savings at 100% minimum and 100% max so it stays on max all the time.

    apparently, according to what i have fead core parking only works for intel CPU's is this correct ?

    It's core boost on AMD, same thing but other way around.
