I already know of Speedfan, Everest Lavasys, and of course the ever-trusty(?) BIOS... what do you guys use to monitor CPU temps? Which is the most reliable in your opinion? :) 

More about : cpu temperature monitor

i personally really like speedfan but it's for the more experienced. it measures individual core temps gpu and fan speed

Hi R

I prefer RealTemp, CPU and GPU temp monitor with alarm.

Best temp monitor would be a sensor placed inside the CPU itself. I don't think any of the current software is 100% accurate, but personally I prefer RealTemp.

Where do you think Real Temp reads the temperature from? ;)

The DTS that provides figures relative to a TJ-Max, the sensor I'm on about is opening the CPU, putting in a thermal sensor that gives an absolute value output that doesn't have to be subtracted from a guessed figure ;)

I recommend coretemp for processor.

Well in the case of i7 it's not a guessed figure. Tj Target is stored in a Model-Specific Register, and unlike Core 2 it's actually quite close to the real thing on most CPUs.

RealTemp is the most accurate in terms of 45nm 775 CPU's I believe.

Real Temp is just as "accurate" as anything else (meaning not accurate) if you don't calibrate it. Speedfan is accurate if you calibrate it according to this guide: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/221745-29-sticky-core...


Thanks for the link, I found the Tcase/Tjunction useful.

It is the most comprehensive guide of its type anywhere. Last i was told (a few months ago) it had almost 2000 hours of research put into it.

i dont recomend coretemp,....

i found in speedfan my temp as 23 in idle same with occt in idle and in bios 23-24 idle,..


then i found in coretemp that my idle temp is 45,.....

maybe if the bios temp is the same with core temp i might believe that speedfan and occt are the does who inaccurate,.. but man the bios,....

ofcourse its the most reliable because its bios man...

speedfan=5/5
occt=5/5
bios=5/5
coretemp=0/5
