Just recently, HWMonitor has been giving me inaccurate readings in regards to my CPU temp as well as its power. At idle, it'll go from around 29 C (normal) and then drop all the way down to 17 C. Then, it'll go back up to 29 C and repeat this process infinitely. The power is also jumping from 21.60 W to 30.70 W, sporadically increasing and decreasing. I use SpeedFan to control all my fans, and I was also getting sporadic readings from it as well. Keep in mind that my readings were completely fine until a few days ago. I usually idled at around 29C, with an increase during gaming...nothing as sporadic and crazy as recently. Here's what I did so far:
-Uninstall and reinstall HWMonitor
-Uninstall Speedfan - perhaps there was a conflict with speedfan sensors and MOBO's sensors?
-Virus scan with AVG, Malware Bytes, Iobit Advanced System Care, CC Cleaner
-Turn Off AVG
-Used coretemp to measure temperature...read as 19C, still real lower than before.
I'm starting to think that maybe the CPU sensors are starting to malfunction. I find it weird that both the temperature and power readings are going haywire. Will this cause cooling issues from the cpu fan in that it can't get a stable reading for it to activate when under heavy load? Any help greatly appreciated. Thank you!
