  Monitor Calibration and Profiling
Calibrating and profiling your monitor should, therefore, be your first priority.
The primary problem is that your basic eyeball calibration is highly influenced by ambient lighting, how much sleep you've had, and how much coffee is coursing through your veins.
This is particularly important if you are performing calibration by eye.

 Gage Calibration
Using independent or original equipment manufacturers' calibration services can be costly, depending upon the number and types of gages that must be calibrated, and the turnaround time is often in the three-week to six-week range.
Calibration procedures can be developed by working directly with the original equipment manufacturer; generated from information available from the U.S. government, national or international standards bodies; or developed by in-house personnel.
Whenever an instrument is calibrated, that calibration data should be compared with the historical data to determine if the calibration interval should be shortened or lengthened.

 CPU Internal Diode Calibration
There is a simple procedure for calibrating the internal diode on your motherboard---assuming you are lucky enough to have one of the motherboards capable of reading the diode---so that the CPU temperatures you see are the actual internal CPU temperatures.
The basis of this calibration is that a change in the speed of the CPU will cause a proportional change in the heat output of the CPU.
While this "practical" calibration of the CPU diode/motherboard combination is probably not as accurate as one done to exacting laboratory standards and is subject to the limitations inherent in the full degree temperature steps, testing with a variety of CPUs, motherboards and heatsinks has proven the procedure to be viable.
