Extremely high temps on X99-A Asus based PC

First of all, fantastic app...have been using this for years and love it for monitoring temps. very light and amazing.

I just built a new desktop with an I7 5760K 6 core, Asus x99-A, G-skill 16GB and GTX 980. I cleared the clutter in sensors but was shocked to see some temps after a lite gaming session.

Here is a pic attached.

The CPU [#0} is reporting temps of 50, 36 and 29

while the nuvoton sensors are reporting 110 and so on. Please someone take a look and tell me if everything is ok? It was an expensive build. I don't want to fry it.

BTW..using a corsair H60 water cooling loop to cool the CPU..but fans for everything else. The pump is plugged into the CPU fan, and fan of the radiator plugged into a chasis fan.

Can someone please explain...which is actual CPU temp? Which is actual GPU temp? there seem to be two for everything.


I believe everything is OK. The problematic temperatures Temp3-5 are invalid and most probably come from not connected sensors. I suggest to ignore them.
The GPU displays 2 temperatures, but they are the same, just use different approaches to read the temperature. You can rely on either of them.
That's a relief. Thank you very much Martin. Much appreciated. Smile

btw...what is that memory ambient at 50? and which CPU temp is important? the package or PP0? or each separate core temp?
I think the Memory Ambient is some kind of margin, not a real temperature either.
As for CPU temperature, either the Core Max or CPU Package are the most important values determining internal CPU temperature.
Thanks Martin. Smile Fantastic job. Keep at it. Love the program.

I know this is not a bug/..but any ideas of a new interface for windows 10? Not to mention, some sort of overlay support for D3d apps like games. Would be nice to have a subtle bar on top with translucent stats/selected stats.
There is no plan for an overlay, for this you can use the MSI Afterburner (RTSS) to display values from HWiNFO in D3D games.
