HWiNFO CPU temperature

Hi all,
First of all, thanks for the very detailed monitoring tool!
I'm just scattering around the sensor categories, and I'm not sure, which is the "traditional" (for example which MSI afterburner shows) CPU temperature, because I have found these:

-CPU [#0]: XXX: DTS / CPU Package
-CPU [#0]: XXX: DTS / Core Max
-CPU [#0]: XXX: Enhanced / CPU Package
-CPU [#0]: XXX: Enhanced / CPU IA Cores
-Motherboard / CPU (PECI)

Which one should I monitor, if I want to see the CPU classic temperature?

Thanks,
hazazs

DTS Core Max is the "traditional" value that's show by most other tools. But I'd recommend to monitor the CPU package value.

Thank you. Is CPU package value more accurate than Core Max?
If yes, which one should I use? Under DTS or under Enhanced? Or are they the same?

CPU Package is the average value of the hottest core during the last 256ms calculated by the CPU.
In most systems both DTS and Enhanced values are same, but on some the Enhanced seems to be using an offset (about 5 C).
