Default nvidia-settings GUI wrong temperature reading

The temperature reading of nvidia-settings GUI of the 256.35 driver seems to be off by 10 degrees, e.g. the GUI shows 64 C while the result from the command line is

nvidia-settings -q [gpu:0]/GPUCoreTemp

Attribute 'GPUCoreTemp' (extragalactix:0[gpu:0]): 54.

The latter is the correct value for my almost idle system.

Default Re: nvidia-settings GUI wrong temperature reading

In another post you said that there is a flaw in the GUI version of nvidia-settings?

I have checked three places and they all display right info: 51 degrees.

Everything is OK for me (the GUI version, CLI command and another sensor widget I have on my desktop).

It only seems to happen on certain hardware.

What GPU are you running?
Please attach an nvidia-bug-report log.
