erm.. have you read any of the other peoples posts from the past week? I know I've answered this like 5 times, but anyways.. those programs read cold, so either way you'll get the wrong temp. If you want the correct temp of your mobo or cpu, check your bios. That is the only way to get the correct temp... these programs read cold. Most of the people that have actually checked to see how close the temps are from the bios to the software, the software is always about 5c off, if not more.

Anything else that will work? I can't get MBM or speed fan to get readings for my CPU. I can only get a hard drive temp with speed fan.
