which cpu temp monitor is right?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
which of these is most accurate and why?

i mean, really ... what gives?

i have read so much about one or the other temp monitoring app but nobody really ever describes real support for their claim; i'm concerned about this because my machine is for work as well as games and such.

here's a cap of my E6400 running at 3.5ghz. this is full load while testing dualprime95 torture.

check out the differences. i lean towards trusting what my board manufacturer supplies and so i go by the ASUS readings (who would know the board better?) ... but ... but ... who knows?

lol !
I use speedfan, and i used to use asus probe to monitor my temps, turned out that both gave the same results, so I'd say trust Speedfan !
See if it matches any of the other results...
