It's been a long time since I've posted here but something has come up that I just can't figure out. So, I just swapped out the CPU in my desktop for a newer, faster one, (complete with new heatsink and fan) and I used speedfan to see how hot everything was getting. I was shocked to see that one of the temperatures was at 85C! I quickly downloaded realtemp, everest, and hwmonitor to see what they said. Realtemp said basically nothing, everest did not detect any sensors, but hwmonitor came up with the same result. Everything checked out but "Temperature #1" which makes me concerned. I tried to use prime95 to determine if it was something related to the CPU, but the two core temps remain at 26C - 27C. Should I be concerned or is this a false reading?

Here's the hwmonitor report:

Hi

I'm pretty sure that's not a real reading. On my computer one of the Winbond sensors reports -9 degrees Celsius and that looks like it is probably a similar thing. Temperature #1 on your computer may be an unused Winbond sensor. When I view it in OpenHardwareMonitor, it shows as AUXILIARY under my Winbond chip.

If it were real, I would definitely expect to see one of the other sensors reporting a similar temperature.

James

Can you check your temp using your bios? Also, I like PC Wizard to check my temp. What is your current temp right now? Maybe a sensor malfunctioned when you installed your new CPU. 27C isn't bad. You can also look up what a good range is.

If i'm looking at it correctly this should be the real temperature:

| +- CPU Core #1 : 27 26 39 (/intelcpu/0/temperature/0)
| +- CPU Core #2 : 27 26 36 (/intelcpu/0/temperature/1

James - I think so too now. This has to be an unused sensor since I looked again and nothing else seems to be amiss.
cee - I just tried to look into the bios but it does not have any kind of temperature monitoring. Right now it is still at 27C.
killerx - I do think that that is the real temperature but I was just concerned about the other reading from another part of the computer (I have no idea where "Temperature #1" is).

Thanks for the replies everyone. I think that this is just a unused sensor that's giving me a false reading.
