    I noticed that iStat and Temperature Monitor report different temperatures for the same readings on my G5 Powermac Dual Processor System. For example as I am writing this Temperature Monitor is saying My CPU A is 46.8C and CPU B is 46.7C. In iStat it says CPU A is 55C and CPU B is 54C. Which is right!?

    I trust iStat more than I'd trust a relatively unknown app like Temperature Monitor.

    Well I mean both have a fanbase. I googled them both and they seem both to be known of but honestly I have no idea which is right.
