at SpeedFan it reads/uses core 0 to 7.
SpeedFan has a tab for viewing each monitoring "device name" such as fan speed or core temperatures. Every PC assigns them differently (as far as i have seen on several different pc rigs the numbering is not wholly constant) as i believe speedfan is coded for some flexibility on how things are arranged in the pc itself.

I also dont have speed fan running so i cannot remember the tab name but there is a scroll managed list with check boxes, each one has a number assigned to it.

EDIT: Numbering from 0 to 12 or more - i never noticed if there was a min/max value in there.
Can't fix it if it ain't broke - unless it is in code.

My first intention is to put something together just for me, if that works out I could give it a shot on distributing it.
So it would be better to fiddle around with HWInfo if I want accurate readings, thats what you say....
Is there a somekind of theme or script that is nice to start with learining how to use HWInfo and Rainmeter, i'm just a starter with Rainmeter and the scripts.

My only real axe to grind with SpeedFan is that it doesn't measure anything about the GPU, and that is of some interest to me. So I personally use HWInfo, although I readily confess that setting up the variables for HWInfo is quite a bit more complicated than SpeedFan. That isn't a particularly big deal for a skin you are using yourself, as you only have to do it once. If you are distributing a skin, HWInfo adds a level of complexity for your end-users that is hard to avoid.
