Arrow How to Interpret SpeedFan Temps

This is how I'm looking at SpeedFan temps. You guys who have been using this software, please add or subtract:

In the Readings tab the four temps. 1,2,3,1 are very confusing because they are not labeled and you don't know the source. I read the FAQ's and the app's website and this is what I came up with:

1. The second and fourth temps. (2+1) are flatlined on the graph, so those are non-operational sensors and I can ignore them.
2. That leaves temps. 1 & 3. The graph shows 49C for 1 and 70C for 3.
3. To find the temp. for the cpu core, do this test: Idle all processes to 0 and wait for bottom cpu temp. For me that's 45C. I can confirm that same number in the BIOS. Now add a load, open the graph tab and see which temp. increases the fastest. For me that's number 3, which increases from 45C to 70C in just a couple minutes. So that temp. is my cpu core. What was the load? The load was F@H at 100% on ONE core (I have X2) or 50% of cpu. Adding F@H to the other core and assigning it a different machine ID quickly brings me to ~90C, which I think is the redline, and I'm not risking that now.
3. O.K., so that leaves the other temp. which is 49C. I don't what this is. Maybe mainboard ambient temp?

Do you see any errors in my analysis or is there anything you can add? I'm not OCing yet, just gathering lots of information to get ready.

Ok, on my speed fan, I use number 3 as it reads 36.c with 2x fah running(x2), the first temp reads 27.c, which is too low, and the second one reads a brisk -53.c. And, I know its the third one, because if I pause fah for a bit the temp drops down to 28.c, and subsequently back up to 36.c after restarting fah.The first and second temp readings do not vary at all..just tossing in my 2 cents worth....

everyones probes seem to be different because on my speedfan i took everything but temp1 which is my cpu temp 2 which is my mobo and core which is my core. they dont have support from my mobo but from the pics i have seen if you go here http://forums.extremeoverclocking.co...light=speedfan
and do like helmut suggests. you can get everything you have ever wanted to know from speed fan and if you download some other temp monitoring programs. you can figure it out and you can label the different temps in speed fan. (go to configure and it either right clikc or f2. i cant remember.) i stayed with speedfan once i figured out the temps because i like how its set up.

this is the way to set up speedfan correctly.

yea. thats what i thought. unfortunately they dont have support for my board yet. i emailed the guy but nothing so far. i have the m2n32 sli deluxe which uses the nforce 590 sli. they only have the seemingly more popular m2n sli which uses the nforce 570.

2 other programs that I have used and liked are:
PC Wizard:

http://www.cpuid.com/pcwizard.php (lots of other features, runs in a nice read out at the top right of screen when minimized)

and Everest Home edition:

http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4181.html (again...lots of other features.)

For the general "no-frills" temp program speed-fan is hands down the best imo.

So you are saying that your room is 49c or 120f? Dang, R U in the middle of the sahara?
