    I'm not sure. A lot of people swear by coretemp. On my AMD, hwmonitor and cortemp always correspond, however.

    i would go with core temp.



    maybe go and download AIDA and check what it says about the sensors. chances are, one is messureing the core temp, wile the other is the cpu temp.

    How is Tj Max defined in HWMonitor, Core Temp seems to use 95 C as TJ Max. You should check hwmonitorw.ini file for this line and see that it also says 95.
    Code:
    [HWMonitor]
    VERSION=1.1.7.0
    USE_ACPI=1
    USE_SMBUS=1
    USE_SMART=1
    USE_DISPLAY=1
    [B][COLOR="Red"]CPU_0_TJMAX=100.0[/COLOR][/B]
