Hey People! So i have a temperature problem or i though i had! Today i checked on the temperature of my cpu and i noticed something odd. The temperature changed rapidly every second from 50 to 55 and at some times it would peek at 70 celcius instantly.

So i started doing some stress tests to see how the temperature behaved.

Once i started the test, the temperature would go to 90 almost instantly and the moment i stoped the test i would go to 50 instantly.

Which is not even possible to be happening because the processor needs some time to drop its temperature or to raise it.

Seeing this happening so rapidly makes me thing there is a problem with my processor thermometer.

It seems like the processor performance and its temperature are getting the same exact reading or something like that.

 

My processor is Intel core i7 - 5500u

How are you measuring the temperature?

Try again, but use HWiNFO64 or (better) AIDA64. HWMonitor doesn't understand the motherboard or how the temperatures are represented (i.e. which sensor where) and may reflect bad information.
