CAM displaying wrong CPU temp

Just got CAM installed with a Kraken X61 but the software is showing a different CPU temperature than what is shown on the motherboard and in Open Hardware Monitor. I had the Corsair H100i before this and the Corsair Link software let me link the fan speed with whatever sensor I wanted. Why would the CAM software be showing a different temp than the CPU is actually producing? Maybe make an option to choose which sensor to use for CPU monitoring??

    Benutze die CAM Version 3.7.7 Habe den Kraken x52. Die CPU Temperatur wird im der CAM um 10 Grad niedriger angezeigt wie bei HW Monitor und wie im Bios. Auch stimmt die CPU Lüfterdrehzahl nicht. Diese weicht um 300 Umdrehungen ab.

    Using CAM v3.7.5 and still wildly off reality. I see temps in CAM about 25C higher than all other utilities. Seems like it should be one of the easier things to monitor correctly. Asus motherboard and i7-4790K processor.

    Just finished installing Nzxt M22. It seems Tomshardware best pick will disappoint me. Notification say exceeding 80 to 82 while AMD Overdrive say 36.9 to 37.5

    Also had crazy readings at 8k+ C. The computer would melt, the table would melt and then I would melt. When I check it under heavy loads it spikes around 80, but the notifications are fucked.

    was doing a stresstest on mine, it was at 80-83 C but i kept on getting notifications saying it had gone past 8386 C....

    Also 2700, cam application shows temps in excess of 80°C then HWinfo64, HWMonitor, and BIOS show 30-40°C. This is severely screwing with my fan curve...worked fine alongside my FX 8350 though.

    Me too. Ryzen 2700X on an MSI x420 Gaming M7 AC. The temperature is incorrect, but in the MSI software and in hwinfo it is correct. Frustrating because i really wanted the color to match the temperature and not just be dark scary red.

    Have the same problem with my new ROG STRIX X470 F Gameing MB. found out that if i roll back to the 0225 bios driver i do get the right temp readings. freaked me out for a while.

    it seems to take the Fahrenheit temperature and use it as Celsius. I have the same problem. Cam shows me a temperature of max 90°C and min 79°C which doesn't make sense after having tried to replace my Kraken x62 with the included stock cooler and the temperatures still being in the same range at idle. whilst if I convert the temperatures to °C from °F I get about 26°C to 32°C which makes a lot more sense. (i replaced the cooler thinking the pump was broken btw... but it turned out not to be the case)

    Same here with Ryzen 2700X on ASUS ROG STRIX x470-F motherboard. CPU being reported as 100C in CAM, but only 40C in AIsuite.

    Same problem. Ryzen 2700x. Asus Hero VII mobo. CAM is reporting it more than 60 degrees higher than the BIOs / RyzenMaster

  • Danie Brink commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Same Problem (Ryzen 5 2600) CPU temperature is always displaying 40C above the true temperature reported in both the BIOS & RyzenMaster (Current real temperature = 35C, CAM reporting = 75C)

    CAM is showing wrong temperatures, I was going crazy at first it was saying over 100C but in the bios is showing 34C-44C Idle, and in MSI Command Center it Shows same as in BIOS, CAM software is showing obscene temps

  • Bill commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    At idle I get warnings such as your CPU temp has exceeded 160.62C degrees. Prolonged use at this temperature may shorten your CPU's lifespan. Neither CAM nor HWMonitor shows in the HIGH/CURRENT/LOW temp readings of anywhere approaching that. I'm using an AMD-9590 chipset.

    The temps on CAM are incorrect. Using CAM CPU i9 7900Xtemps where around 75C where using HWMonitor and RealTemp there were at 93C! I like this software but had to uninstall it as it was useless with incorrect temps
