Default New C2D E6600, temp monitoring is inconsistant

Just built my first C2D system today, got an E6600 for just under $200 on sale at a local store. I wanted the 9x multi instead of the 8x on the E6750. Figured it would hold me over until the G0 quad cores are more common.

Anyway, specs are same as in my sig. After installing windows I ran coretemp and it reports about 30*C idle on both cores and 40*C load. I have 4 120mm fans installed, all at 78cfm. I thought those temps were really good, but when I run Smart guardian or speedfan it reports my idle temp at 45*C so which one is correct?

This is coming from my old AMD rig where coretemp reported similar readings to smart guardian, are the core 2s different? I really want to start overclocking this thing but the temps incosistancies are disconcerting...
