If I am benchmarking, testing or stressing I use HW Monitor because I want to get under the hood if you will.

No a picture was not necessary, I just like to post them.
i use that gadget for my mom's opty 170 rig. it gets quite toasty sometimes!
actually core 1 is 10C hotter than core 0, i neeed to reapply TIM...

thanks guys. +rep to all helpful posts. i think i'll stick with coretemp-hwmonitor reports several other erroneous temperatures on my rig for whatever reason (TMPIN02 is supposedly 128 degrees c all the time, for example).

Temps registering at 128c or any other ridiculous temp is just the program trying to read a sensor that doesn't exist.

I use HWMonitor and I've never had a problem with it.

Honestly, just to be on the safe side, I'd go with whichever one gives you the higher temp. Don't risk it. If the higher temp is still within reasonable range of the max, then just use that as a control.

yeah same here man
use ASUS' PCprobe for a better MB temp. HWmonitor always says that for TMPIN02 on crosshair IV

core temps are off by ~10c for most thubans, think it's a sensor issue

here's mine.. you can see core temp is off by 7-8c vs socket temp

the program coretemp will only show core temp.. that's why you should go by socket temp on hwmonitor

i prefer HWMonitor over CoreTemp because HWMonitor also gives you GPU Temps (which is obviously good for oc'ing gpu's) as opposed to CoreTemp..just my twocents..

I initially downloaded HWMonitor and it worked fine for about a day or two, but everytime since then it wouldn't respond. I don't know if this is just me or a recurring problem among other users. I just uninstalled it with plans on switching to CoreTemp!
