Hi

Not sure I would believe either. :wink:

Most of these software monitors can be 10% out either way. Both temps are OK. It also depends on your CPU, fans etc. If the PC is suddenly shutting down then that would be a cause for concern. My P4 is a Prescott core and it runs pretty hot. If I believed the temp monitors (and I've tried various) I'd probably never switch the PC on. :laugh:

Make sure your fans are clean and dust free and there is plenty of ventilation in and around your case - you should be OK.

Regards
