Default Whats the most accurate temp monitor for Vista 64bit?

Alright So I'm trying to overclock my new e2180 but coretemp and speedfan don't have signed drivers so it won't work in 64bit Vista. I'm looking to see if I can disable that protection. But is there a better program to monitor my temps with?

Also I heard ~70c is the max temp for this chip. Is that right?

I think all the programs will just read hardware monitors and therefore be equally accurate...

eh theres a fix for coretemp. im running it fine on vista 64.
CoreTemp, Vista x64 and Service Pack 1 - Xtreme CPU

theres also a workaround for other general programs that use unsigned drivers.
HOWTO: Use unsigned drivers under Vista x64 - Xtreme CPU
