    Question Temperature monitoring question

    I'm not sure what the best method is to determine my CPU's temperatures while overclocking, so I want to know what you think.

    So far I've found 2 programs in Windows and compared them to the BIOS H/W Monitor readings. SpeedFan matched the BIOS so I'm inclined to think that's accurate but I'm not positive.

    What software do you use when overclocking to monitor temps?

    Here's what I got:
    idle temperatures on boot: 30C (SpeedFan, BIOS); 21 (CoreTemp)
    load temps (TF2 1hr): 38C (Speedfan); 27 (CoreTemp)
