Can I ask you why do you put conky on a while loop... ?
It's much better for me to run it in this way:

exec conky |dwm

With a ~/.conkyrc like this (just an example):

background no
out_to_console yes
total_run_times 0
no_buffers yes
uppercase no
update_interval 3

[${time %H:%M %d/%m/%y}] [${acpitemp}^C] [$loadavg]
