Temp Monitoring Utilities - Readings all over the place - Help?

Hello all,

I've been having trouble identifying which of these programs shows the most accurate voltage readings and I was wondering if any of you could help me out here. I was told by a friend that HW Monitor was the best utility for this sort of thing, but when I noticed that it doesn't even show a VCore reading for me (?), I became skeptical. So I tried out some other ones like SpeedFan, CoreTemp, and even Asus's dated Probe II. Well, the readings are all over the damned place. This is a problem for me as I'm wanting to overclock. So....help?

  1. What are you talking about? The temperature for the CPU that you should pay attention to is the core temp for each core. Which is the same in each program.

    Everest : CPU#1/ core x
    HWmonitor: core #x
    speedfan: core
    coretemp: CPU #0

    My bad. Didn't mean to ask about temperatures; I know those are fine. I'm wondering more about the voltage readings. HWMonitor doesn't even show a VCore. Any idea what's with that?

    Oh I see what you mean. I've only ever looked at my Vcore in the bios and using CPU-z. My theory is that there is a different delay for each of them because the Vcore seems to vary.
  4. Yeah, I'm sure those two are the most accurate. It's just annoying that I can't just use one app to monitor everything. I mean, I can understand the VCore reading varying, but completely missing? :-/
  5. Use Cpu-z, and it will tell you the VID- voltage. Also You have a ASUS MOBO, so just you their programs, (i.e. TurboV) and overclock with the desktop program
