if you go into "Configure" in SpeedFan and you should be in the "Temperatures" Tab, you should see a description of each sensor. Maybe not bang on, but atleast you'll get an idea of what each are. Hope that helps

Speedfan is confusing like that. Give HWmonitor a try, it's from the makers of cpu-z. I like it.

If you really want to be entirely sure you're getting the right readings, use AMD Overdrive.
