    I have a Cooler Master Aerogate II, I only use it to monitor the temp of my CPU, its connected directly to my CPU. Im a bit confused if the readings from the Aerogate are correct, coz in my ASUS Probe its different. ASUS Probe is higher, about 12C difference. Any idea???

    Whichever one is measuring the CPU die, or has a sensor closest to it is the most correct.

    If you want a second opinion, use motherboard monitor. If it's available to read the CPU die, then it'll be able to pick that up. I think PC Probe is way too sensitive for my tastes.

    If both temps are below 50*C, I really wouldn't worry. If it's starting to get up around 60*C, then I'd look to blow out my case real good and possibly clean off and reapply some thermal past (preferrably some Arctic Silver).
