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)
