Default CPU temp monitoring tool ?

What do you recommend ? Speedfan, Motheboard Monitor... I generally used the one that came from the motherboard maker but I'd be curious to find out the temps of the individual cores on my Q6000.

As usual I rush to post and then find additional info from googleing
Coretemp, TAT and Speedfan seem to be the tools. This guide on Tom's sheds some light on CPU temp monitoring with Core2. Must find the time to read it properly.

I use speedfan sometimes. Most of the numbers out of MBM seem "whacked" so I don't bother with it. Rivatuner and ATiTraytool can display/graph cpu and mb temps over time which is nice so I use those primarily. This functionality only works w/ certain MBs so don't assume you will be able to do the same.

Core temp has issues on Vista 64bit so I run everest. It uses a vista side bar to display CPU mobo and GPU core Diode mem and ambient
