My System Specs

Default

Real Temp and Core Temp will report the same temperatures since they both get them from the same source. The ASUS software gets temperatures from a sensor located on the motherboard, so it's completely useless. Use Real Temp or Core Temp (doesn't matter which one, but I prefer Real Temp), and ditch the ASUS software.
