I have a core i5 2500k which I believe is running a bit hot at idle speed. It idles at about 35° Celsius on the stock cooler. Everyone says that the computers idle temps are individual to everybody elses due to climate, case etc. My computer consists of:
- Core i5 2500k Stock Cooler No OC
- Asus Radeon 6950 Direct CuII
- Antec 1200 Full Tower Case
- Mushkin Blackline 8GB 2x4GB 1600mhz
- Asus P8Z68-V PRO
- 1TB Seagate 7200rpm
Something that I find interesting is that the temperatures are different according to the program I am using. I just don't know what to trust. For example, Speccy always says my MOBO temp is 60° and never changes. I know it has to be wrong.
Current temps according to programs are: Speccy - 34° Asus AI Suite -24° Coretemp - 35°
I am starting to think that this might be a software program than a hardware problem. I can't tell which program is true.
