Use Core Temp, Real Temp or Harware Monitor for Mobo/Chip temps. pkofman October 14, 2009 12:29:44 PM which tempurature software would you recommend most accurate for this task. my cpu temp in most of these programs is about 15 c higher than the water temp on the cooler. do any other thme actually measure the temp directly or from the bios readings? thanks peter Related resources i7 rampage 2 extreme posting issue - Forum I7 920 and rampage II extreme OC questions - Forum I7 975 Extreme Edition in ASUS Rampage II Extreme with dual GTX 295's - Forum Rampage IV Extreme vs Sabretooth X79 - Forum Upgrading MOBO to Rampage III Extreme - Forum Can't find your answer ?
