I'm using a recommended Corsair H80i liquid cooler and Corsair link to monitor temperatures. The cooler has a round copper base and does not fully cover the CPU. When I put the Threadripper under load (Like 3D Rendering) the temps jump to around 90C, (idles at about 63C) But my Corsair cooler temp stays around a constant 33C. I also checked for good contact with the CPU and cooler base, and it looks good. So I have a feeling due to the lack of CPU cooler coverage there may be an issue in getting a correct CPU temp reading.
Q: Any body have any info on the temps they are getting at idle and under load, are my temps I'm getting normal?
Q: Are there any good apps for monitoring AMD CPU temps that are possibly more accurate?
