Speedfan looks like the only one reading correctly. Seems like it thinks you have a dual processor MB one is reading no processor 11C, the other is reading 40C which is about right.

I've had a lot of trouble getting utilities to read correct temperatures on my ECS boards. If they are pulling the temperature out of the bios the bios might not be calibrated to a particular cpu or chipset. Run the CPU hard for 20 minute sthen reboot and check the BIOS temperature readings.

If the CPU is showing the proper info and getting about the right benchmarks it is ok.

Brisbane's do not report temps correctly. You're BIOS will usually read it right so at least you know what you idle at. I've found that what ever CoreTemp reports is low by about 23 degrees.

I have always found Speedfan to be pretty accurate.
You have to make sure you are setting the sensor you want to monitor as it will detect all sensors.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
