AMD OverDrive or HWMonitor for core temps

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
On HWMonitor my core temps are around 25c. On OverDrive my temps are around 38c. The temperature reading on TMPIN0-3 are the same in both programs.

Which monitoring program is more accurate?

HWMonitor, but read TMPIN readings, not Core temperatures.

HWmonitor should be more accurate as overdrive updates less often, try speedfan and see which it agrees with since they are so different.

Unusual, as they both read the exact same temps for me. Do you have the latest version of both?
post #5 of 8
I get the same problem. My AMD Overdrive's temp readings are higher than CoreTemp's, but HWMonitor is almost exactly the same as CoreTemp.

HWMonitor, SpeedFan, and CoreTemp are showing the same temperature.
I'm using the latest version of OverDrive. I didn't check HWMonitor.

D'oh yes. I was thinking about the GPU core temps, dont' ask why >.<

I meant to say that read the actual CPU diode temperatures, not the per-core diodes.
