<img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Stick Out Tongue" class="inlineimg" /> Blah, blah blah, there are a lot of threads out on this one, but I have two <b>different</b> temperature readings from 2 programs.<br />
<br />
1. ITE Smartguardian: Reads 45-48C<br />
2. CoreTemp: Reads 41C<br />
<br />
Which one should I be trusting?

I really dono but I have read the truth is you cant trust any of them. The reason is because its using probs that were ment for safty procuations to shut devices off it they got alarmingly hot. So to cut corners the manufactures used lower quality probes and not so much to read within 1-2 degrees celcius...<br />
<br />
I still believe the most acurate way is to use your own probs and digital device. I know that doesn't help but its just my 2cents..

<div style="font-style:italic">Check your idle temp in the BIOS. See which prgm lines up with it.</div>

yeah i 3rd that idea if you have to use software. Your most acurate reading using the stock probes are goina directly throught the bios
