Until recently I have used Motherboard Monitor as it was compatible with XP and I was quiet happy with the readings I was getting.
However as I use a Gigabyte MB I discovered that they had made their Easytune software XP compatible and it also included fan speeds and temp monitoring.
So I donwloaded it and it was around the time that I updated my cpu and case cooling measures so when it reported reductions in temps I was happy.
However, having read about speedfan (my machine is rather noisy) I downloaded that and one by one compared results.
MBM and Speedfan were exactly the same yet the Easytune reported back temps of sometimes over 10c less, so as you can imagine when under load I was getting 52c it could have been 62c making sence as my machine would crash.
So who do we belive? surely Gigabyte would be correct as they manufacture the motherboard?
Not wanting to fighten people into opening up their cases and adding more fans but it does pose a genuine question.
