Default CPU Temp??

Using both Core Temp and NVIDIA Monitor I am showing a huge difference in my CPU temps. Which one do you think is more accurate.

Here is the CPU at idle



Here is the CPU under load.



As for cooling I have a stock AMD X2 HSF that has been lapped and my case has two 120mm case fans 1 intake in front and 1 exhaust on the rear and 1 80mm intake on the side.

What are your ambient temps ?

I think Coretemp is reading good. I'm getting almost the same exact temps with a stock X2 heatsink as well.

Ambient temp in the room is around 22 C . I have not checked the temp inside the case yet.

Coretemp is correct IMO.

That's what I was figuring.

Do you think I might get lower temps if I remove the 80mm fan from the side? Could it be messing with the front to back airflow. How the fan is positioned so that is is blowing air over the RAM above the CPU.

that nvidia thing is total crap.

90% of the time rely on the bios the other 10% rely on coretemp or something simliar.
