Default Good CPU temp program


Im haveing some problems finding out the REAL temperature of my E6850, if i reset my pc Bios says between 38C and 42C, Everest won't show it, SpeedFan says Intel Core 1 37C and Intel Core 0 37C, but then Sensors view claims its 51C. I just don't know which one to beleive, i need an accurate one so i know my CPU temps as im trying to overclock, obviously i cant look at BIOS temps whilst gameing. Any advice/ reccomendations ?

Also i want to just keep my CPU cooler at 90 percent fan speed, around 4,500 on stock cooler, not that silly 1,300, but i cant find any manual fan speeds in BIOS (P35C-DS3R mobo). It doesnt need to last more than a year or 6 months either. I wont hear it either because if im at my pc iv got my Z5500's on half, and we all know that there loud .

Try CoreTemp, or the program (EasyTune I believe) that came with your motherboard to monitor the temps. That mobo program should allow you to mess with the CPU fan speed too.

Since you have an Intel CPU I reccomend that you try out intel TAT (thermal analysis tool) for the most accutare readings.

What about RightMark CPU Clock Utility program? It's working well with my BIOS since both show the same temperature. Might want to give it a try.
