However, I believe that you are a P4 (I'm talking to Gforce) which has an embeded thermal diode, which is the most accurate of all of the temp measuring because its embded in the cpu itself.


That makes it difficult to compare AMD and Intel chips then and they can only be compared to themselves???

well in the athlon xp's they integrated a thermal diode into the chip, but your motherboard has to support thte ability to read its temps.

that is a valid point if you're using the on-chip thermistor, however, the most accurate benchmarks of temperature are using a thermistor placed VERY close to the core on the heatsink.

however, I realize that one might wish to compare the temps of two different chips, it's very difficult unless your hsf is the same for both chips AND your airflow characteristics are the same...
