Windows 7 Ultimate x64.

Core temp and speed fan are the two best known, I personally use core temp, it displays in gadget, on task bar and on my key board.

SpeedFan >>> SpeedFan - Access temperature sensor in your computer

SpeedFan allows you to have a deeper view of the status of your computer. Almost every computer includes support for hardware monitoring. Accessing digital temperature sensors is really useful. If you are trying to figure out why your pc hangs when under heavy load or after some hours of usage, SpeedFan might help you to find the real cause. Very often it is a poor power supply, or an improperly installed heatsink that lead to behaviours that we tend to associate with errors from the operating system, but that are not. SpeedFan automatically searches your computer for interesting chips: the hardware monitor chips. SpeedFan can expose voltages, fan speeds and temperatures. On rare occasions, the BIOS doesn't activate such features. SpeedFan tries to enable them as long as this is a safe thing to do. Not only the motherboard is searched, but also some video cards and almost every recent hard disk. SpeedFan can access status info from EIDE, SATA and even SCSI drives, showing, in a consistent way, internal data that can be used to diagnose current and future hard disk failures. This is known as S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology). At the lowest level, SpeedFan is a hardware monitor software that can access digital temperature sensors, but its main feature is that it can control fan speeds according to the temperatures inside your pc, thus reducing noise.

Currently using CoreTemp64, its simple.
Speedfan is installed but way to much clutter for moi.

I was asking because some have said there are possible issues with W7 and core temp. I am currently hashing out issues with my system.

I use Real Temp since it can also monitor your video card and it's a lot closer to what my motherboard utility temps are.

Windows 7/10 64 bit

I've tried all that have been listed here plus the Intel provided "Desktop Utilities" for my Intel M/B and they all show different temperatures for my Q6600 CPU and other components.

Which one to believe? No way to be sure which one is displaying the "true" temps.
