Which one should I worry about?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, the system in my sig is up to date.

My motherboard has a temperature sensor on it, I also use speedfan and coretemp. Right now these are the readings.

MOBO:
CPU: 51C

Speedfan:

Temp1: 51C
Temp2: 44C
Temp3: 39C
Core 0-3: ~41C

Core Temp

Core #0-#3: 57C

So Core Temp thinks my CPU is six degrees hotter than my mobo does, and then speedfan thinks that it is ten degrees colder than my mobo and sixteen degrees colder than coretemp?

Which one should I not let go over the Tcase of 73 for my CPU?

mobo is the most accurate.

The latest coretemp is v 0998.

I prefer coretemp over others for accuracy.
Remember "idle" temps are just a guess by software.

CPU temp is just a guess via software.

coretemp , cores under load, is truetemp as close as software can be.

For realtime temps that are accurate use hardware thermometer.>

place it (digital thermometer) in a calm area inside case away from direct airflow.
Use that reading for true temp MB.

As far as coretemp and 73c...go with coretemp.
