    in everest what cpu temp reading should i be going by the cpu or cpu diode :confused:

    the cpu temp is the same as the utility provided by my mobo manufacturer and the cpu diode reading is 10* higher than what the manufacturer utility shows

    Always go by the cpu diode temp as it is the actual temp inside the chips core.. You will notice under load it will read higher than the cpu temp and somtimes even read lower at idle..
