I recently obtained an Intel Q6600 Rev. G0 :D anywho, I OC'd to 3.2GHz and slapped a Zalman CPNS9700NS on it....My msi monitor reads 37c under load while Core_Temp registers 47-48c...which is more accurate?

RealTemp.

What is the TJMax set at in your CoreTemp? For the Q6600, I believe it's 95*C. Usually these programs are more accurate relative to the motherboard since they use sensors inside the actual CPU, whereas the motherboard programs use sensors in the CPU socket.
