Assuming that's a genuine question, then the answer is you don't of course.

The original poster said he had "vastly" different temps show in two apps. Two my mind "vastly" indicates more than 2 or 3C, an amount Sandra adds as compensation on some boards.

So one app (or both) are wrong. With the temp stable in Windows, he can note the two different values then quickly reboot, enter BIOS and check the temp there. (CPU temp shouldn't have change much in the time it takes to do that.) The app closer to the BIOS reading is likely correct.

Go with MBM. Sandra grossly over guesstimates. My CPU diode temperature is -30C and Sandra is reporting 29C saying "sandra added comphensations". Go with MBM it gives a more true reading.

If you have access to a thermometor then you can use it with MBM to calibrate the core sensor and get the "right" temp....

these are the instructions:

Is there a shareware style download of the MBM software. Sandra is showing my cpu temp at 120 c. The bios shows it as 33 c. Some differance I think.

MBM is shareware... works with most all motherboards that have temp monitoring and since your BIOS shows your temps, you have temp monitoring. Get it at Tweakfiles. I got a date with a hot freshman chick, so I gotta go. Out
