how accurate is a program like speed fan?

I am using speedfan to monitor my cpu temps mainly the core. How accurate is this and is there anything better?

Best something in Texas.... just don't know what it is yet....

I'm not sure exactly how the program works but it's probably just reading the info that the motherboard itself reports just like it does to the BIOS, so it should be completely accurate. I would bet all fan/temp monitoring programs get the same info so you could download another and it would probably say the same exact thing.

Core temp is an alternative but most ppl I know prefer Everest to monitor temps.

Cpucool is the bomb.

CPU temps, gpu temps, and a whole pile of other data.. Badass. I use it. I used to use speedfan but cpucool is x10 better.. Even comes with a nice graph.
