HWiNFO64 ver.6.22-4060, conflicting CPU temps (ASRock mobo vs cpu)


Active Member
Hi Martin,

Thanks as usual for the great software. Searched but couldn't find previous discussions of this specific issue ...

On an ASRock x97 Extreme 6 with a i7 4790k:
cpu temps reported by the cpu seem fine (low 30s. png's 1,2), but cpu temps reported by the motherboard in the low 80s (png 3).

I think the CPU reported values are correct (no overclocking or other reason to expect high temperatures).

I don't seem to recall noticing the above before.

Any advice?

Kind regards

Thank you for the report. Can you please check with ASRock A-Tuning (or similar tool) for your mainboard what CPU temperature will it report and whether launching that tool will perhaps change values reported in HWiNFO ?
Thanks Martin,

ASRock A-Tuning reports the low 30s. Launching that tool doesn't seem to change values reported in HWiNFO.

Kind regards
Thanks. Does A-Tuning CPU temperature match the CPU (PECI) value in HWiNFO?
