Default Which temperature monitoring program is right for my C2D processor?

Speedfan and HWmonitor say that my load temperatures are 55C. Realtemp and Coretemp say that my load temperatures are 50C. I need to know which programs are correct because I would like to further overclock my processor from 3.6ghz to 3.8ghz. If I do so, my load temps in Speedfan and HWmonitor will be over 60C whereas they will be under 60C, and thus at an acceptable level, in Realtemp and Coretemp.

I don't trust SpeedFan, but RealTemp/CoreTemp are good ones. I'd go by those. Could always compare idle temps in BIOS to idle temps in the programs.
