        I had SpeedFan working, but I kinda thought the temps were skewed. There is almost a 20 degree temp difference between SpeedFan and Core Temp on mine.

            I have actually heard on tons of forums that ASUS motherboards have a problem telling temp and most suggested CoreTemp for the real deal.
            For instance, in the last 4 bios updates for my board, according to testers in the ASUS forum the temp guage will jump 10-15 degrees up or down depending on which BIOS, but CoreTemp shows a constant. It is how the board reports it if I understood, and speedfan pulls its #s from ASUS, while CoreTemp goes about it differently.

            By the way, has everyone with ASUS noticed their site is actually running pretty decent lately. No more feeling like I am on dial up.

                The listed temp is the case temperature for the CPU. The sensor for that used to be a separate "wire" that you placed between your heatsink and top of your processor. Of course, now I believe it is built into the motherboard's CPU socket, so it's supposed to be more accurate.

                One thing I never got was how SpeedFan (and CoreTemp) read the readings and where it got their numbers from...

                Edit: Hmm...so CoreTemp was aptly named because it only supports Intel chips based on the "Core" technology and AMD Phenom chips? Why not support older chips as well?
