I did notice a discrepancy between abitEQ and Coretemp, about 8~10 degrees c higher with CoreTemp. I was getting temps up to the mid 70's while running these games, and mid 50's idling, which seemed high. Since I cleaned out the heatsink and fan, now it's idling around 44~45. Still a bit high. Redoing the thermal paste should help there. Until then, no fun games for me.
Anyway, back on track, has anyone else with an abit board noticed the temp differenced between abitEQ and Coretemp?
I also checked using CPUID's Hardware Monitor(Trial)which shows a different temp, although closer to abitEQ's. I checked the other readings,fan speeds and voltages and they match up, so it's just the temps which are off. I'm confused????
