I'm not sure if it actually is or was a bug, but CoreTemp 0.99.5.27 shows 18 Â°C less than 0.99.5.20 does (both 64bit) on my Phenom II X3 720 BE. I'm using a Gigabyte GA-MA790XT-UD4P Mainboard, newest BIOS ver. F5. Two of the attached screenshots were taken while prime95 was torturing my box Oh, and I'm using Win 7 RC and a Scythe Ninja 2 CPU Cooler with Coollaboratory Liquid Pro.
Of course, I'd really prefer to believe the newer version .27 of CoreTemp, which also shows the same values as HWTemp (version 1.06.0 is used here) and Everest for the cores (even if they show three distinct but (of course, because there is only one sensor) identical temperatures for every core).
But on the other hand it seems, to me at least, to be more logical that the actual core-temperature is higher than the one the mainboard is reporting (here HWMonitor was used to obtain a value of 54 Â°C). And even more confusing is the temperature reported for the idle cores: 21 Â°C ?! That's just about my room temperature... impossible, isn't it? And look (screenshot) at the temperatures reported after resuming from standby - 18 Â°C min in CoreTemp, 32 Â°C min from Mainboard (HWMonitor).
