    Temperature difference between HWMonitor and Mainboard

    Hallo ROGers,

    I recently bought a nice Asus XI Formula mainboard, it's a beauty however I did find something strange with it.

    The temperature in the FanXpert application is pretty slow reacting to changed, when compared it's sometimes 10 degrees difference (that's on a better time) however sometimes when the temperature goes up fast it says 30 oC for example while hwmonitor says it's it's 60+

    One time it's faster then another time, the OLED display shows 36 oC while running Prime95 (asus app says 57 oC, HWMonitor says 67oC), does not seem to react at all at the moment.


    Setup is a i9 9900k with asus XI formula mainboard, the rest is watercooled. It rather bothers me because this is my first time watercooling, and the whole build is new. I do not know what to trust, even the temperature of HWMonitor is much higher than expected.

    Often temps can be different because software and sensors are in fact reporting different things. Like here, the OLED might be reporting "package" as CPU temp which is not the same as core temps.

    And core temps are what you want to take note of.

    Just remember not to have multiple programs poling the sensors at the same time. That in itself can cause conflicts and bad readings.

    Ol scarey face Arne' has it pretty much covered.

    The sensors don't like multiple programmes polling them and often results in false readings when that is the case.
    And what is being reported is often two different things, so CPU in one application could mean the socket area and on another it could be the area beneath the socket or someplace else...
