I have heard that the ASUS Probe is inaccurate. Can anyone tell me whether it normally says the temperature is higher or lower than the actual temperature.
Thanks

Well if the ASUS probe does say a higher than reality temperature then that is awesome! Because at IDLE my CPU is at 34c which means it might be 24c! Cool!

Mine, I know for a fact is 10°C higher than what it says. But, I've put together enough asus systems to see that this is not always the case. In some cases it can be reading correctly. Hoot posted a great article on how to modify a indoor/outdoor temp monitor the read within 1° of actual procsessor temp( please correct me if I'm wrong here, Hoot). That's what I used in conjunction with the Asus probe to figure out if MY temp monitor was off. Mine was off by the standard 10°, but don't take this as being the norm, guys. Your temp monitors may reading right, and you're not in the temp range you think you are. Be careful here, 10° @ load can be the difference between having a really enviable system or having a really expensive keychain.
