Recently I have found out that CoreTemp 0.99 and RealTemp 2.7 are giving out different readings of the cores. So I went into the BIOS and check the CPU temperature considering BIOS should be the "honest" source of readings.

Confirmed that RealTemp's reading is exactly the same as that reported from the BIOS. Yet incidentally found out that the readings reported by CoreTemp which usually is 6 to 7 degrees higher, is the same as that of the motherboard as reported by BIOS.

So can I conclude that CoreTemp = Motherboard;s temperature (including North Bridge and the CPU) where as RealTemp = CPU temperature alone?
