Which Temperature is Right


Recommended Posts

So I have used Speedfan to adjust fan speeds and to compare temp readings i used Hwmonitor, but each report temps with about a 10 degree difference. I am not worried as i know there low enough but which program is right? Any info would be great as i am curious.

 

Processor q6600 2.4GHZ

i dont know much about core2s and the q's, but 40 is normal under load

and 22 seems ridiculously low

either way, go with the high number to be on the safe side, and you are totally safe

The core temps if am i correct are the internal temps of each core, not the actual surface temp?. Though yes going by the highest is the safest bet but seeing as i know the temps are safe ( temps were taken at idle) i am curious as to which program is actually right being there is such a big difference......

Alright so through some more testing with different programs (this time under load) i think it is safe to assume speedfan is the odd one out, judging by the numbers and that the other programs all holding similar temps would be the correct ones?
