Default Re: CPU faulty temp sensor?

Your i5 750 is a quad (4) core cpu so the important temperatures to look at are the "Core" temperatures, Core 0, Core 1, Core 2, Core3. Your temperatures are fine, that Temp3 value is saying negative so it's not hurting anything, the software just isn't programmed to read it properly.

Temp3 is most likely nothing - that is, there is no sensor there so speedfan does not know what to do with it. Your CPU temps are correctly labeled as Core 0 - 3.

Speedfan is great - sometimes. I prefer CoreTemp for newer Intel and AMD64 CPUs, or RealTemp for Intels.
