Ok I'm confused here. I have tried several different monitoring programs and of the 3 I have tried, none of them can agree. Below is the programs I have used and a sample of what they report for the 12v line.

Motherboard monitor reports 16.3v on the 12v line.
Speed fan reports 11.1 to 11.3 on the 12v line.
Asus probe reports 11.9 to 12.1 on the 12v line.

The hardware monitor in my BIOS is pretty close to Asus probe. Am I stuck with Asus probe or is there something that is accurate out there?

Grab a multimeter and test it yourself. I'd say that's the most accurate way. Nothing I have tried reports correctly. Asus probe reports 11.43V on the 12V when it's actually 12.04V (that's measured with a multimeter). I don't trust any of those programs anymore.

i find everest to be the most accurate (accurate being what the bios reports)

How about for GPU temperature, anything out there that does what say everest or motherboard monitor does but includes GPU temp?

The 2.00.300 beta version of everest does show the GPU temp.

I only use MBM to monitor the overall stats of my computer... As in I only care if the delta of the numbers start drastically changing from the expected norm of what MBM usually reports.

I don't like the fact that MBM reports my 12v line at over 16v. I wonder if that's because I have 2 seperate 12v rails?

speed fan dose work but I think you have to set what is being monitored and to get the most of it they want you to pay. anyway on another note how is that cpu working for you I was thinking of upgading to the FX-55 tell me something or not what is you take on it?
