Hey all hope u are fine :) 

Well today i installed the latest version of Core Temp which is 0.99.4 and also i installed the latest version of Everest ultimate edition which is 5.01 and the temps that Everest are showing are 10c lower than what Coretemp is showing


Which of these are more accurate ?

I used CoreTemp for a while, then moved to RealTemp.

I downloaded real temp and its showing the same as core temp so maybe Everest is wrong ?

Well i dont think its related to calibrating,i want to know which app is more accurate in reporting my temps :)

Realtemp is most accurate for core 2's. Download that and calibrate your sensors, it indeed can make a difference. Everest is more than likely using a formula with tjmax 10C lower than coretemp, which is most likely not correct.

All of them read the same data, with the only thing changing being Tj Max. There is no difference in the calculations besides one number.

Core temperature = (Tjunction Max - DTS reading)

By simply doing 1st grade maths and changing Tj Max you can achieve the same readings from all these programs. Therefore none of them are really any more or less accurate.

Real Temp does let you calibrate the idle temps while no other software can do that, but most people don't bother which negates any "improved" accuracy that Real Temp could have. Speedfan allows calibration of TCase as well which is why it and Real Temp are preferable to Core Temp and Everest.

Read Comp's sticky as well, it's there to be read :)

If in doubt, your BIOS readings are usually more accurate.

Yeah but it only reports the CPU temp not the cores.

Obviously you've never read the stickies.
