Hello Martin
Great software. Have said this before but it must be repeated.
One question; Which of these temperature sensors in the picture is what is most correct to use? Thinks it's the Cpu package power temp sensor but it's OK to confirm who I should use.
I have an Alienware 17R1 with Haswell processor.

The CPU Package should be the best one. It's the highest temperature of all sensors in CPU (averaged during the last 256 ms).

Thank you. It is the sensor I use in osd (RTSS). Who of the other cpu sensor can you recommend as well? Is the temp sensor from Nvidia Geforce gtx780m also the most correct to use?

Thank you for your answer.
