Hi, about 4 weeks go i had a intel stock cooler with my E8500
and my sensor movement was around Core0:7 and Core1:9 (around)
Now my temps I think were around 40-43 underload. And the air temperaute back then was around 20C-25C

Now around 2 weeks ago when i got my thermalright ultra-120 extreme, this was my sensor movement

Core0:2-3 and Core1:0-2 Im guessing the air temperature was around the same.

Now today I tested my sensor movement again and this is wat i got

Core0:0 and Core1:0 But the temperature is like a low of 14C? Its been rainning for the past days cold and a bit windy.

I ran prime-95 and the max temp on core0 was only 38C and on core1: was 36C only reaching 36C for at the end of the under load.

Now I have never seen at anytime any cores gone below 35C at idle since Ive had this E8500, 2 months.

I tested using prime-95 using the same test a while back (not sure with stock or with True, but the air temp was differntly in the 20-25C)

And the results were a maximum of 42C on core0 and 40C on core1.

So therefore I can only think that the colder temperature from the TRUE-120 and colder waether was made the sensor movement badder.

Is it possible that this colder weather and changing to a TRUE-120 has made my sensor movement hit 0 on both cores( remember was 2-3 on core 1 and 0-2 on core 2 with the TRUE-120 but higher air temperatures.)

Please comment

Thanks.

Its well known that on hotter days the PC will run hotter, on colder days the air temp is lower so the PC will generally also run cooler.

Sometimes in the middle of summer, or on really hot days the fans have to work harder to cool.

Having a PC run cool is a good thing, its when it starts getting to hot, thats when the problems can begin.

My E8500 was 13 most of the week.

Considering we had rain, wind, hail and around 9 degrees, I wasn't at all surprised.

No i mean the air temperature is a low of 14C. I think the sensors cant show for my E8500 less then 35C as for the 3 months Ive had it is always idling at 35C.

What I wont to know is why has my sensor movement gotten worse?, atm both cores at 0 (stuck) with the factors that might of caused this being a TRUE-120 and cooler air temps. I wouldnt think overall cooler temps give sensors indicating being stuck.

Have you added/ removed a fan from your case lately?

Maybe try reapplying thermal paste?

So many E8xxx Intel CPUs have faulty sensors. My E8400 reports incorrect temps too.

Na havent changed any fans.

I just checked the bios and before when I installed the TRUE-120(2-3 weeks ago.) the bios shows 25C, Now its back to what it was 35C. Is this because the sensor movement on real temp is 0 showing stuck? And when it showed 25C in bios there was some movement but very little 3-2 and 0-1 sensor movement. My question is, I havent changed anything from that time 2-3 weeks ago and real temp is now showing my sensor movement as stuck 0.

Though it appears that the underload temps are cooler. From prime-95 first installed the TRUE-120 max 42C and 40C and 2-3 weeks later max 38C and 36C
Are there any other programs to test my sensor movement?

Youre right most if not all 8500's have faulty temp sensors, according to Google
