Question Motherboard Monitor or PC Aler

I have both setup on my PC, my motherboard is a MSI k7T 2 turbo.
With pc alert it is showing my cpu tempature at 49 degress celcius.

With motherboard monitor I have snsor 1 set to the via686 b-1 and its reading at 23degress celcius current and low, with the high tempature being 50 degree cel

Both PC alert and motherboard monitor are reading the sytem temp at 31 degress cel, and the fan speeds the same, which one is right?

/edit/
NM mbm is wrong, I did the sissoft burn in and the tempatures never changed, guess I dosent like my mobo

The VIA686B has three inputs from sensors. Inputs one and two are external - typically a case sensor and the CPU sensor. Input three is the diode on the VIA686B itself.

What's on inputs one and two depends on how the manufacturer has wired up the sensors to the VIA686B chip!

Thanks got it working
Sensor one always reads 23 degress cel, not sure whats its monitoring
Sensor 2 reads 50 degress cel, so thats my cpu and sensor 3 is 31 degress cel so im sure thats my case temp.

Sounds like sensor one might be the case temperature?
Sensor two sounds like the CPU temp.
Sensor three sounds like the southbridge temp.

Would this make sense? Is your room around 23 C?

On PC Alert it says my chasis is 31 degrees cel, is that my case temp?
