Setting Temp Offset

Postby DFA_2Tricky » Mon Jan 21, 2013 12:59 am

When I first start my laptop Core Temp says that my cores are running around 136º Fahrenheit. That’s hard to imagine for a computer that hasn’t been running all night and turned on in a 69º F room. I know how to adjust my offset but how do I get the right temperature of the cores? Do I set them to my rooms temperature at first startup?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like you have enabled displaying distance to TjMax rather than absolute values.
Go to Options --> Settings --> Advanced --> Untick first option --> click Ok.

I think it's been figured out. There is no 'Advanced' in CoreTemp 0.99.7.3 - 64 bit
So I went, Options--> Settings--> then Checked: Show Delta to Tjunction max Temp. Now my temperatures are running around 77-81F.

How do you get a motherboard to lower the temperature? CPU boots up, but cannot run games. BIOS indicates temps are REALLY high! I dont know if its accurate or I missed something during the build.

A motherboard is not responsible for high temperature.
If your CPU temperature is excessively high, it is most likely due to an incorrect installation of the processor heatsink.

Laptops do not have the ability to cool the CPU very well, which is why they use low powered CPU/APUs. Typical operating temps for laptop CPUs are in the 60C-90C (140F -194F ), range under load.

When you boot a PC be it a laptop or desktop, it uses a lot of CPU capacity to load the O/S, hardware drivers and any background applications. It would be completely normal for a laptop to show 136 F, (not "C" as in Celsius), on boot up and in normal use.

You should not use a temp offset unless you know for sure it is correct as it can be misleading. Using the room ambient temp to try to determine a CPU/APU temp offset is not accurate as CPU/APU idle temps vary considerably based on idle load/CPU/APU voltage/the heatsink used, ambient room temp, etc.

Selecting: "Show Delta to Tjunction Max" would NOT change the CPU/APU temp readout. More than likely while you were looking for a Core Temp offset setting, your CPU cooled down as it had minimal load on it at idle vs. full load when booting.

You should UNCHECK this as I have mentioned in an earlier post in this thread, the delta option is not showing the core temp but the distance in degrees from the maximum allowed. You'll notice the temp will go down with heavier load instead of going up.
