I'm on an asus board and I'm using Everest to check on my cpu temperature. Is it really accurate or is it off by what ive heard like 5-8C?

Thanks in advance

Well its reading from your Motherboard CPU probe and is generally very accurate..If you wish to compare the temps of 2 Programs then also download speedfan.

ASUS PC Probe was tested and found to be about 5c off on average (5c low BTW). My board uses PC Probe 2 and I have not seen any tests. I do know that Speedfan agrees with PC Probe 2 almost all the time........ I don't think the P4P800S SE supports PC Probe 2.......in fact, I just looked on the site, and they don;t even show a PC Probe utility for that board...... weird........

I have tested Asus Probe against Speedfan and have received same temps. The program is made for their boards, so I doubt they would screw that up, but you never know. I tried googling for tests that you mentions, but came up empty handed.

Stick with the Asus Probe that's usually going to be the most accurate since it is specifically written for Asus boards. I've used Everest, Speedfan, Probe 2, and Probe 2 has been the most accurate for me after testing my temps with a fan controller with temp monitoring.

Well, the most accurate way to verify your temps is with a hardwired probe inserted into the heatsink block bewteen the block and the CPU wired to a readout.

Not many people do that
but that is what they did in the test I saw testing PC Probe I and another manufacture's board and their software. I can't remember which one unfortunatly.

Check the CD that came with your motherboard and see if it includes PC Probe, or PC Probe 2. Again, the ASUS site does not list it as a valid utility for your boad. Not sure if you could download the version of another P5P800 based board and use that, but might be worth a try. Or contact ASUS directly and ask about it........
