    CPU Temperatures

    Just wondering the most accurate way to measure my CPU temps.........I have the AI Suite II that came with the board but I have read a lot of forums saying to use coretemp and realtemp because they are the most accurate......and my real question is how do they KNOW that they are more accurate......how have they backed that up????? Please keep in mind that I am new to the whole overclocking scene.

    No software is 100% accurate with temperature readings. But the general rule is to only use one at a time. Using more than one can cause polling conflicts.

    wow i did not know that... i always thought as a general rule that using multiple programs would be better. e.i if coretemp and hw stated that the cpu was 50c, but ai suite ii stated 60c; then chances are ai suit would be wrong.

    Guess i was wrong big time
