    Differences in reported temperature

    I can understand different sensors reporting different temps, but when different software reports different readouts from the same sensor it's rather more confusing.

    Nvidia control panel reports 69C on the GPU, but speedfan gives 59C. It's always 10C out. It doesn't really matter as I'm within tolerance either way, but any ideas on why there's a difference?

    i use everest ultimate edition, it shows die temp & under chip temp, plus RAM temp so i assume the nvidia uses a combination of die and under core temp to give its average readout.

    i also see various temps, and the nvidia panel reports (at the moment)

    NVpanel 44

    everest

    GPU Diode 50 & GPU1 38

    hence me thinking its an average of the 2.

    disturbing news as the core throttle is set to 110 degC so the true core will be in excess of this, crap total crap imo

    Well speedfan gives a second reading as well, which I think is the gfx mem reading, at 55C.
