Back in June I asked a couple questions about hardware monitoring 
packages for reporting temps and fans speed and such. Towards the end of 
the thread you responded offhand that temp monitoring was quirky on your

as distinct from amdtemp. However both only report for 2 CPU's (cores 
?), while amdtemp reports (wrongly, IMHO) for all 4 (in my case) .... If 
healthd &/or mbmon would report (accurately) for all 4 cores, I'd love 
them more :-) .... <<<

Are you saying it's worse now, or something else changed...?
(I obviously have no worthwhile input on this topic since I didn't even 
know half these programs existed two months ago, I'm just asking for 
details since I think you might've left out some important info specific 
to your setup).
