Different temperatures displaying AI Suite 3


Recommended Posts


I run a Asus Z87M-plus with a i7 4790k and I am not sure which AI Suite version to use.

According to ASUS product homepage (which has info from 2015) AI Suite version 1 can be downloaded.

However, there is now a version 3 of AI Suite 3 which I downloaded and it looks to be working fine. It has many more functions than version 1 and one thing I noticed is that the temperature differs.

When I use version 1, the CPU temperature that displays is 35 celcius degrees.

When I use version 3, the CPU temperature that displays is 32 celcius degrees.

Do you guys think that both versions are suitable for my CPU/Motherboard?

Can the reason why I get different temperatures for both versions be that the newer version has settings that make my CPU cooler?

The older version may simply be less optimized and using more CPU than it should.


You should almost always use the newer versions if you must use OEM tools.

Different versions can have a different sensor points. You're CPU isn't just at one temperature everywhere. BUT as long as you aren't seeing drastic temperature differences, I wouldn't worry about it.

Because this software is so specialized for ASUS' use, it may be that you need to contact their support and ask them about the 3°C discrepancy.  While three degrees does not sound like a huge difference, it is actually a 9% difference between the two values, which does not sound like an acceptable range of deviation to me—I would expect 1% or less.
