monitoring temperature

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My mobo has a utility (ABIT EQ) that monitors temp, voltage, etc. i'm testing with prime95 right now, but the temp readings on ABITEQ don't correspond to readings on pcwizard. What can cause this and what readings should I believe? I've run both tools together and had only one or the other open at a time.

ABIT EQ readings: CPU=58C, SYS=30C, PWM=48C
PCWizard readings: Processor=38C, Mainboard=57C, Power/Aux=47

Or can someone suggest a better monitoring tool? I tried MBM 5 but I couldnt find my mobo on the list when i installed it so it only reads voltages and cpu speed.

Well 1 thning for sure... 58°c is a bit hot!
The PC wiz appears to be inverted being the CPU is always hotter than the system with Air cooling!
A good referance is the BIOS temp on the CPU and is about 80% of the full load temp.
