I have been out of overclocking my PC awhile. I thought I would check what my current temps were so I downloaded the new versions of CoreTemp and Speedfan.

Well, sure enough, the temps don't match. They are off 15 degrees. I remember the whole TJunction thing 85 vs 100 however I thought all the new program updates would have fix discrepencies. I guess not.

So, which one is correct for a E6750?

thanks

CoreTemp is correct for 65nm chips, and RealTemp is correct for 45nm chips (for your future information).

sooo, any idea why speedfan 4.34 is still wrong for the e6750? I thouht it was under reporting by 15 degrees but speedfan is 15 degrees more than Core Temp 0.99.1.

You can calibrate speedfan to match your current chips tjmax. Matter of fact, you can do that with realtemp as well.

great. thanks. I forgot about that setting. I believe I had it offset to +15 degrees from an old version of Speedfan. The new version probably fixed the problem but my old offsets were still in there.

I think realtemp is most accurate. in any case just use the delta to Max Tjunct. That's always accurate.

Speedfan 4.35 beta 24 also has a new section called exotics. It shows voltages, temps, up time, and other system information. Speedfan 4.34 works for my E6750 without offset. Speedfan 4.35beta24 works for the E8000 series without offset!
