Re: New C2D E6600, temp monitoring is inconsistant
I started out my overclocking expedition with SpeedFan, using the CPU temp as my guide. I found out though that the CPU temp is not as accurate as the two Core temps. I then got the program CoreTemp and compared the two core temperatures as measured by CoreTemp and SpeedFan and they were exactly the same.
I've heard a lot of good things about CoreTemp so that's what I'm using.
