Strange temp readings in CoreTemp - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Another hardware monitor for your perusal. I just ran across it about a week ago and I am pretty close to switching over to it 100% of the time. This one is open source and written in C# too, so you can change it if you so please. I like this one because its got my CPU and GPUs all in one spot and you can graph them together. Not sure what its built on, but it looks similar to HWMonitor.

Personally I would go with a NZXT Havik 140, but if you have the extra money the TR Silver Arrow and NH-D14 are pretty much the best air coolers you can get. H100 might be worth looking into as well.

Well there's no way for me to know whether the temps are right or not without some other way to measure them. So I'd rather err on the side of caution than fry it smile.gif.
