SpeedFan goes random

I'm having quite a difficult time with SpeedFan. It says my CPU's temperature is around 75C. Core 0 is going randomly from -27C to 100C, Core 1 is stuck on 94C. And the PC works fine. I have Google Chrome, Steam, OpenMPT, ASUS SmartDoctor, and a Explorer Window opened. Why is it going to those temperatures when Windows works fine? Is it not true? If i should use a different monitoring program, what do you recommend? Here are my specs (There is alot of unrelated stuff, i know):

More about speedfan random
  1. you will have to forgive speedfan its kind of a tard, you can use coretemp to get the most accurate readings from your cpu
  2. also once your got a accurate reading get prime 95 and see what its peaking at ...
  3. Some times the Asus software messes with other monitoring software.

    Speedfan while fairly good on older hardware may not be up to some newer stuff.

    I recommend hwmon for temperature/voltage(but it can mess up too, just like all of them) monitoring.


    In some cases, board sensors are just messed or not connected, but those give you 127c or other very strange and too high numbers all the time
  4. Yep HWMonitor behaves much better then SpeedFan.
