Default Re: New C2D E6600, temp monitoring is inconsistant

How the hell are they different? I thought they just displayed the numbers that the temp sensor was recording...
It's more than a little annoying isn't it? 15C* difference in 2 progs that are running at the same time... thats 60F* difference!! Maybe the local weatherman is influencing these utilities... he's about as accurate.

Edit: one utility reads System 31C* the other reads it as -65C* wewt... I give up.
