I find Real Temp gives me the most accurate temperatures with all my systems other then the atoms. Its kinda useless for that as it reports temps ridiculously low

Just remember, Real Temp I believe will only work on Intel CPU's not AMD.

Thats why I suggest Core Temp, or Everest (I use both side by side).

Real Temp only works on Intel CPUs, but it is better for that purpose than Core Temp. That's why I recommend Real Temp for Intel systems and Core Temp for AMD systems.

Real Temp or Core Temp as the others have mentioned. If you'd like a more comprehensive temperature report about your computer, get Everest.

Coretemp, I used to use Everest faithfully but have been using HWMon pro more often than not nowadays.
