Default Q6600 - CoreTemp vs RealTemp

I was just wondering which of the two was more accurate, here is a screenshot of both running:

I would go with core temp, 19 and 20C seem too low, unless your within a fridge.

Ive just been hearing realtemp was more accurate with the new quads, its only ~5*C difference tho, and neither are in the danger zone

I usually have a few temperature monitors opened. Those two, along with ASUS Probe, and Everest. And which ever is the majority, I keep. Right now, I just have my Everest for monitoring, since it matches with Core and Real Temp.

I rely on Real Temp more often.

Well the thing is that there is a huge difference for me. Core Temp says each one is running at about 60C while Real Temp says they're around 42C.
