Are you running ntpd on your boxes?  See what happens when you plot its
drift against other temperature sensors, the closer to the clock chip
the better.

If you do this on enough boxes, you should have an easy time seeing what
happens on boxes where you have an easier time watching ntpd's drift
value than you have watching a nearby dedicated temperature sensor.
