Actually all four cores show that the temps will change independently of each other in every program that I use. HWMonitor, Everest, and Coretemp all show each core's tempature, but HWMonitor and Everest use the ITE IT87 sensors on the Foxconn motherboard, but each uses a seperate sensore from the package as the CPU temp. HWMonitor uses TmPIN1 at 39c as CPU, and Everest uses TMPIN2 at 51c. According to CPUID website, Coretemp uses a sensor in the northbridge to calculate the temp, which I assume is the same sensor as the ITE IT 187. I have read that the ITE IT87 is also inaccurate by 4-5 degrees, but I have no idea which sensor would be the correct one to go off of for the CPU. Another thing that I am unclear of is using the CPU temp vs. the Core temps of each core, and what will using either do for me in making sure that the recommended max temp isn't exceeded in during an overclock. Another weird thing is that CPUZ and and PC Wizard reports the CPU running at 1250mhz stock, and CoreTemp reports 2500mhz, the right speed and all three apps are made by the same company.Edited by str8maniac - 12/24/08 at 5:39pm
