I'm using PC Probe and it seems like it's accurate. I'm also using the Asus MoBo OCing software to monitor things. Asus Overdrive.

Um, well what exactly did you do lol...

Open up RivaTuner > On the little arrow that says 'Customize' (the first one, closest to the top); click that and another menu should come up > should have some icons there; click on the one that looks like a little computer chip with a magnifying glass over it (should say 'Hardware Monitoring' if you hover over it) > a bunch of graphs should come up, find the graph labeled Core Temperature. That's the one you wanna look at.

And Thor, I don't really suggest Speedfan at all...it tends to be pretty inaccurate with some things (like for example whatever my "Temp1" is...its in the negative C degrees lol).
