Which are to be believed?
Personally I use the core socket temps to monitor thermal conditions since it is the socket VRMs that get too hot on extreme load before the CPU does (watercooled) on my mainboard.Will upping core the voltage more stop the freezing?I'm using the onboard VGA, ATI Radeon 4200.I noticed something strange, the temperatures shown through rog connect are vastly different than those displayed on hwmonitor.Bios temps are System temp 40C, CPU 44C (at this writing).Corsair 2x1 GB DDR2 PC-6400 Dual Channel memory CL5 (5-5-5-18).Rosewill 430W 80 Plus Certified hwmonitor Single Rail 12V PSU.GPU - asus R9 390X dcii 8GB.With.4Ghz I got 62 degrees Celsius socket temp and 51 degrees Celsius core temp, where core as with my latest attempt.5Ghz got 67 degrees Celsius and 56 degrees Celsius respectively.Thanks, last edited by Crayraven; at 10:56.Easy way to differentiate them is as I said go by idle temp temp where the core readout can go way below room temperature or temp load the CPU fully and see which core temp jumps up the fastest.New components, gA-MA785GM-US2H (rev.3.3) bios temp version F11, athon II X2 250 (Regor).0 Ghz CPU.Should I keep upping the voltage or should I settle for.4Ghz?I'm not sure how accurate that is though.

Depending on the load and the cooling setup the core temp is usually the lower one, it can go below temp ambient temp because it is CPU internally calculated rather than measured.
Its lower by 10c.
Other tools like HWiNFO64 display both temperatures.
So so far I've gotten.4Ghz stable.3125v after 10 mins of Prime95.
In HWiNFO the socket bethesda temperature is called "CPU" spring and grouped together with other motherboard readouts temp like case temp and voltages.
It does get more accurate on high loads and is a good indicator on how much thermal headroom your CPU has left before throttling.

I've done a little searching around and there are varying opinions as hwmonitor cpu temp vs core temp to what these readings relate to (case temp, core temp, NB temp, etc.).
Which one is more accurate?
