In for a penny, in for a pound... And having polished off a half a fifth of Jack Daniel's, I am feeling no pain at this point. First, I have AIDA63 set to update every one (1) second, so uncleuebb's assumption is somewhat flawed (I still believe you have a great piece of software though). Second, my i7 950 core temperatures line up in both AIDA64 and RealTemp, except that occasionally AIDA64 reports Core 1 (0) and Core 2 (1) temporarily higher (as in about a second or two) before returning to match RealTemp. Core 3 (2) and Core 4 (3) appears to match RealTemp consistently. For what it is worth, and I am sure unclewebb and Tamos would both agree, software monitoring is imprecise at best, and in actuality only gives an estimation of reality.
