I have an Asus A7V133 but I know the temps are probably reported wrong by the Asus probe. Is Motherboard Monitor any more accurate? I get about 10c higher with the asus probe so I'm inclined to think the Motherboard Monitor is correct. I really want to know what to trust since I am about to start water cooling.

asus probe almost always read 10C too hot. not that you can enitrely trust them anyways.

get a probe from crazypc and install it. Its pretty acurate (after seeing the diffrences between that and via hm it was scary! there was like as much as 15c diff!) they cost like 14$ its a good investment and really easy. ask hoot to send you the article he wrote on how to set it up.
