The only thing you're going to do by sorting and tying down the cables back there is ensure you will have to break it all apart and do it again when you upgrade, for zero aesthetic benefit. Unless you put your computer on display with the right panel off, fuck I don't know your life.

I see you fit in with "2. People who don't know shit about technology".
How do you even think these temperature monitors work? Do you think they send out little mini robots that actually measure the temperature inside your computer? Do you think software on your hard drive can magically leave the platters?

You see, they all work the same. They simply display the number given by the component's firmware. That's it.

Download CoreTemp and share a screenshot of your temperatures.
SpeedFan is extremely unreliable and has proven this time and time again, I'm not saying so because I don'† believe you, in fact, I don'† give two shits about your temperature (and apparently you're in a 12C room), I'm just telling you how utterly terrible SpeedFan is as a program.

Again you're showing how you know absolutely nothing about computers, or even basic high-school science. Temperature is a physical property. It needs a physical device to measure it. Software can't measure it. Software can't "record" it. Software displays a number given by firmware. It's a single line of code.

That's simply because they don't poll at exactly the same time. Some may use interpolation/extrapolation too, to reduce jitter.
