Some odd temperature readings [XFX 5770]

I'm having some really odd temperature readings that makes it impossible to set proper fanspeed.
CCC: 38, Afterburner: 46, GPU-Z: 39-45... Which one to trust? I thought it was a Windows 7 issue so I tried installing XP but I'm getting the same result. In games Afterburner and GPUZ tops at around 71C while in CCC it never goes above 56C.

Also if anyone know, what are the Temp1,2,3 in GPUZ? I know its core, memory and something else, but which is which?

Usually: Core, Memory, and PCB (Printed Circuit Board).

71 centigrade is a fine temperature when at full load on the HD5770. :)

Download and install FurMark v1.8.2. Run this program. If your under 80--85C after 15 mins your ready for anything. Fan speed is generally controlled automatically by the GPU card, what's your motivation for setting it manually?

Yeah, if you set fan speed at 100% you can lower the max temp you'll see. Even at 80--85C your card will Not likely run above 70% (or so) fan speed on Auto.....

Hey, sorry for the late response.
I was just messing around in Afterburner as the auto fan control is letting the temp go a tad too high in some temperature programs. CCC is usually reporting a much lower temperature compared to others (Afterburner, GPUZ etc.) so that's why I was wondering which one was what.

Anyway 71c is fine and dandy for 100% gpu usage :)
