AMD Temperatures Are Weird?

For some reason the temps of my cooler come up quite low...like near 36C when using Coretemp & CPUID Hardware Monitor. I'm using a FX4170 @4.2Ghz with the Artic Freezer Xtreme Rev 2 cooler and not sure if these are the right temps !

Thanks

    Hmmmm...I've put on Prime95 and It's now idling around 50C with the heat test setting on. Just wanted to make sure the temps are coming out right !
  3. 50C I can say it's OK, however be careful not to go beyond this temperature... At 60C you might be considering buying a new cooler and heatsink. By the way is it overclocked and how much?

    Nope haven't overclocked yet...
  5. OK, so with Prime95 there are no problems with the temperature. But you should consider not going beyond 60C.
