How many degrees do I have to add ?

I don't believe anymore speedfan, MBM, asusprobe.
I have a 1800+ Palomino on an asus a7n8x mobo.
In all the above software, my processor is running at +- 21C
and my motherboard at +-24C :grum:
Useing the Zalman CNPS6000-cu heatsink with an Titan Alufan 120 mm (specs: Titan Alufan )
Even in my BIOS the temps do not go over 25C.
I think something went wrong with the temp. diodes.

Therefore I bought an external temp sensor.
I mounted this sensor on the heatsink and it said +-42C.
I think this is more likely.
How many degrees do I have to add to this temp. so I could know the approximatly temperature of my processor ?

nobody knows, until you actually put that sensor on the CPU's core

That sucks, because putting the sensor on the cpu core you can't mount the heatsink.

Perhaps I have to stick the temp sensor next to the cpu core (1 square cm) with a lot of greece, and hopefully the temp sensor is not higher than the cpu core so it will fit under the heatsink.
Perhaps, perhaps.....
But it would be easier if I could know how many degrees I have to add so I could have the approx. temp.

temp sensors can be easily placed between proc and HS, next to the core. Maybe use some thermal paste to make it stick easier.

greece =! grease
