Did TAT not log as well as speedfan then? Or did it just not log as fast as speedfan..
TAT says Pent M b/c that what it was made for...Pentium M's..but that doesn't mean it won't run other cpu's.
That -15 is true on quad core chips because SF is subtracting the the DTS from 85 when it should do so from 100. (core temp = constant - DTS) where constant is 85 for most C2D and 100 for quads and maybe the X6800 but I'm not totally sure. That explains the 15 Â°C difference.
TAT gives *some* values are too high on my machine compared to RMClock
and to the raw output from the DTS as measured using uncleweb's technique/CrystalCPUID detailed in this
thread. Have a go at this and convince yourself.
Finally, I agree with your statement about Pent Ms: it doesn't mean it won't run w/ other CPUs, but for me at least, it seems to give these odd temp spikes for no reason where RMClock and Speedfan do not.
