Reading temperatures

Hey, what program gives the most accurate temperature readings?

I just had to re-do the heatsink on my i7 and I'm not sure if it's OK now or not.

People say to keep it below 70C to be safe. I have MORE than adauate cooling. CPUID Hardware monitor tells me up to 90C on Core 1 and 85C on core 4.

Yet, EasyTune6 and my BIOS tell me 70C.

Am I OK or not?

  1. HW Monitor gives me the same readings as RealTemp, although it's a bit slower.
    If you're hitting 85-90ºC chances are real good that you don't have adequate cooling.

    Let's hope that the OCZ Freeze has a good break-in period.

    I've got an Antec 900 and XIGMATEK Dark Knight and I know I put it all on right. THat sounds like adaquate cooling.

    So either the 6 Drives and tons of PCI Cards and clogging up my case too much, or I just got a cheap i7.
