Using a Thermalprobe
I'm trying to decide whether I should use my thermalprobe to measure my cpu readings. I'm currently using an ABit ST6 motherboard which uses on-die sensor readings, which are, from what I hear, are known to read the cpu temperatures at least 10c higher than motherboards which uses the thermosister found in the center of the socket.
I find that my cpu readings are off from what they really are since even at 50c (under load), my AX-7 is cold to the touch. I'm wondering if on-die sensor readouts are more accurate than thermosister readouts and would it be a good idea to use the probe to determine what my cpu temp really is and then conpensate in mbm?MAIN • Intel C2Q Q9650 (L820B033) @ 4.05GHz (450x9) 1.375v • Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P Rev.1.6 (FFb BIOS) • ThermalRight Venomous X • Noctua NF-P12-1300 x2 • G.Skill PI 4x2GB DDR2-1100 @ 1080MHz 5-5-5-15 1.9v • Corsair HX850 • XFX Radeon HD 6670 • Intel 320 Series GEN3 80GB SSD • WD Caviar Black 1TB x2 • Pioneer BDR-206DBK • Auzentech X-Meridian 7.1 2G (LME49720HA Op-Amp) • HP 2509b x2 • Rosewill RK-9000 Cherry MX Blue • Lian-Li PC-9F •
