Which temperature program to trust? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Coretemp has always been reliable. I also cross-check it with HWMontior. (They're usually the same).

However, you can't have HWMonitor and CPU-Z open at the same time for some reason.

A note: I think that the DFI-provided monitor and CoreTemp together are likely synchronized, except that the DFI utility is reading from the IHS; CoreTemp reads from the thermal diode inside the IHS, which would explain why its readings are higher.

Hope this helps.

If you look at my pic you will see I have CPUZ open with HWMonitor I do all the time NP. I just open CPUZ first, When its done I then open HWMonitor and it works fine.
