OCCT temps ...

Does anyone know how accurate the temperature readings in OCCT are for my e8400? Cause Real Temp says otherwise.

Thanks.

Same here. Want to know who is more accurate. I stressed my CPU for 2 mins 40 and then OCCT stopped.

Otherwise RealTemp was saying I was in the 50's.

I use OCCT and CoreTemp, and they give relatively the same temp readings, so I'd say that RealTemp might be a bit off.

CoreTemp has always been very accurate, in my experience.

Actually a little bit of Googling says RealTemp is better for 45nm chips. And seeing as he uses an E8400...

Fair enough, like I said "In my experience".

I haven't had a chance to play with any 45nm chips extensively yet :)

I always assumed they had the same temperatures, since they draw the figure from the same digital sensors.

Oh and a problem with RealTemp is the setting of the TJMax. Changing the TJMax value ends up changing your temps. Google to see what your TJMax is. Mine has a C1 step and therefore 95c. Once the TJMax is correct then your temps will be correct.

Sorry about the multiple posts, but got it working now. Cheers peoples.

Still got the problem about my bus speed constantly changing, anyone know anything about that?

Intel powersaving tech kicking in ... the C2D is actually based on a laptop chip hence all the automatic power saving.

You need to Disable all the CPU features in the bios, such as C1E, speedstep and all the other randomly named features of that nature.

RealTemp is the best temp monitoring tool for 45nm chips. Trust it over all else :P
