Which one should I trust

I have heard people say that Asus Probe is never right so I ran SiSoft and this is what I got. I was running at more or less Idle.

I never trusted sandra. try mbm 5. just to be on the safe side though, believe the higher one soyou don't risk frying your cpu.

MBM reports at 32ºF I can't ever get that program to work.

I am inclined to trust SiSoft a bit more because on the last board I had it gave the correct temp as the two orther temp monitors I had but, I don't know about this board. Its an Asus TUSL2-C if anyone that reads this has one please put in your imput.

Arrgh. Getting accurate temp readings with any and all software mainboard/cpu temp monitoring progs is just so #&*# iffy! Ya think you got troubles monitoring the temp of a CPU with an internal thermistor?

My bad. You probably already have at least one K7 family processor mosheen.

If only those ~$100 laser temp readers could read the edge of a CPU. I guess they can if you have a Slocket. Ah-ha! A mirror might do the trick! Electrically insulated around its edges would help. An insulated dentist's mirror.

Right over my head.

You would have to use a Front silvered mirror cuz the back silvered mirrors give a ghost image(another image beside original)which you can't focus and get proper reading or to diffused for good read.The thicker the mirror the more error.

Some months ago, a company(I thought it was Raychem)offered a hand held laser "gun" that measured the temperature of whatever the beam was aimed at. This puppy seemed just the ticket for accurate heat measurement of heatsinks, and CPU's--if the beam could be directed into the very small area between HS's and Sockets.

This thing cost ~$100, so it wasn't too ridiculous of an idea to consider buying one. Thus my mention of dentist's mirrors.

I have read about them and it sounds good.Which part of the cpu will you monitor.I don't think anyone has ever taken the temp at different parts of the BUG.You can also use fiber optics to various chips w/beam/spliters.Sounds like a nice project.

is that at idle? if so you'll notice it says 'compensation added' in sandra, so it's probabally knocking 10°C off, and 24°C sounds about right for an idle temp.
Whats your room temp? is it around 12°C or less, because if thats an idle temp then the room temp would have to be about 12°C, and if it's a full load temp the room temp would need to be around 8°C, and I doubt that is likely.

I've got a Raytek MT4 non-contact thermometer. It will not read the CPU die temperature. The space between the HSF and PGA is too small for the eye to read between, you just end up reading the HSF's surface temperature. And the laser that is on the unit has nothing to do with the tmeperature reading, it is there just for targeting purposes.

The best way to monitor the CPU temperature is through a calibrated internal temperature diode, or with a thermistor embedded in the HSF base in the manner AMD recommends.

Even intel says that it's own internal diode isn't very reliable because it's so small and that the temp across the silicon can change that fast that it may be out by quite a bit. The way amd recomends is probabally the best but not practicle for most people.
A senfu probe is most peoples best bet if they just want the cpu temp. If you have the dosh then something like a digidoc is good too
