Read through the help file shortly, ran the program with the default parameters and it passed the test without any fail.

Well, I think with the tests done  on the CPU, we should rule it out.

Did you run CoreTemp with other applications open?   It could be a compatibility issue.

 

I think you should test the RAM again with the latest Memtest86, download free addition at the bottom left of this page, > http://www.memtest86.com/

Will do so, but I made a new experience. I run CoreTemp when no other app is opened.

I have installed Win8 on my second HDD (not SSD), and it also freezes there by starting CoreTemp. This would mean:

1] CoreTemp is not designed for Win8
2] Hardware issue

Hi,

 

Is the BIOS updated to the last version 1.9?

New things:

CoreTemp doesn't freeze in Windows 7. I tested it by starting it more than 20 times.

But now I can start CoreTemp also in Win8 without freezes so far. The issue is so strange. Then I rebooted the system. Directly at the beginning when the cpu fan was high it freezed when I started it at the second time. (So, shortly after login I started CoreTemp, the first run went OK, the second run lead me to a freeze).

I made a new experience. It seems when the RAM will be used that it freezes. I had many programs open to get more RAM usage (> 30 %) and then it seems to freeze. I will use MemTest tonight.

Still watching, but have had no new ideas to put forward.   Waiting for the Memtest.

Tested again in Windows 7. I opened much applications. It doesn't freeze in Windows 7. That would mean it is a compatibility issue.

Now I have the solution I think. :D Yes, I know I'm a little bit hasty.

Google for: core temp 1.0 rc6 windows 8.1

It seems that this CoreTemp version has problems with Windows 8.1. RC7 version should solve it.

Yep, it seems that it is solved. Strangely one time of several times it showed me wrong values, picture attached.

Now we just have the Chrome issue. (which happens just from time to time)

Yes, but it still happens in Chrome. Now it doesn't freeze for some seconds, but for a longer time that I had to do a hard shutdown.

EDIT: Now updated Chrome to the newest version.

Good luck.
