Temp software differences

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am using Core Temps and SpeedFan to get the temp of my cpu and there is a 10-15 degree Celsius difference between the two reading. Which one is more accurate/i should go by?

use coretemp for temps. with speedfan you have to add 15 degrees to the temps. the reason your multi is jumping is because you have to disable the power saving utilities in bios.CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E) Disable
CPU Thermal Monitor 2(TM2) Disable
CPU EIST Function (Note) Disable

edit: your bios will be different names, those are the ones in my bios.
