    Hi,

    I get very different CPU temp readings from MiniStat2 and Temp Monitor 3.1- usually about 10-12 degrees celsius different (the Ministat is always higher). Any thoughts?

    Thank you.

    depending on your mac which you didn't post, they have multiple temperature sensors for different sides of the CPU. So, there would multiple ways to calculate a temperature.

    Hey superbovine,

    Good point. This is on a 20" iSight iMac. Thanks for the insight.
