I heard somewhere that asus temperatures are off by 5 degrees Celcius in all of their programs such as ai booster and in their bios. but are they 5 degrees to high or too low?

Can you remember where you read/heard this? I also have an Asus board, and would like to know if this is true. It probably depends on the board though.

I've heard variations. One was 3 degrees, another was 5. I've heard for both + and -. As a good rule of thumb, go for 5 degress under. So if you want your processor to never go about 55c, set alarms/shutdowns/throttles for 50c. Besides, if you reach 50c on most systems with decent cooling and without a constant 100% CPU usage, something's wrong.

I run mine at 100% a lot (F@H), and my Prescott never gets about 40c.

ai booster says 45-53 on idle and max ive seen is 64 on full load, but i think that it is 5 degrees higher than normal cuz i have a hard drive temp program and the temp of the case if 5 C higher than the hdd temp at a boot after allowing 12hours to cool so i think hte temps might b off that way

hey nobody...whats the deal with F@H anyways, you get some kinda benefit from that? I read a little bit about it online, but it seems like the only things you get out of it are the pure satisfaction of helping and the need for a new processor sooner than normal. Not that the satisfaction of helping is a bad thing, but I'm pretty poor, and am wary of putting to much pressure on my hardware.
