I would consider the Asus AI suite II as giving the correct reading for the following reason:
1. The program is specific to the mb which is Asus. That is it is a match.
2. The other two programs (Hardware monitor and speedfan) gave you a very high reading which should make your system shut down immediately (but it does not) if really they are true readings. You verify the falseness of the readings by touching the heatsink.
So i rechecked, its in Celsius, but i realised that the CPU and motherboard temperatures shown on the ASUS suite are shown as GPU and Mainboard, which show pretty similar temperature readings, bout 20-30 C on idle and up to 70C when playing a powerful game for an hour or 2. but hardware monitor is showing CPUTIN and AUXTIN as very high temperatures 90C + what are they meant to be?
so overall it is showing CPU on ASUS suite as GPU on hardware monitor
and motherboard as mainboard these temperatures are reading fine
My concern is the CPUTIN, AUXTIN,SYSTIN thas showing high temperatures
BIOS also shows after 2-5 minutes sitting there machine goes up to 60C then drops
Should i be concerned or assume safe temperatures?
Yes and as i mentioned the BIOS is showing after 5 minutes goes max 60C then slowly drops and steadies at about high 50-60C
even after playing instense gaming or having the machine under full load, after a temperature reading of about 50-70C the heatsink doesn not feel hot so that my fingers burn, ive honeslty never felt the heatsink over warm temperature.
