how the heck are you suppose to tell what the actual temp on the cpu is? O.o
Asrockaxtu says its at 36C but core temp says 12C and speccy says 61C....if its 61C that's gettin a bit up there and might worry me if it goes above like 70C....thats a bit too hot for me even tho i'm water cooling...

i too have noticed this issue with hardware monitor/amd overdrive. hardware monitor says PACKAGE temp is like 43c on load, whereas amd overdrive says the CORE temp is 56c. it doesnt really matter, because the maximum packet/socket temp for my FX6300 is about 70c (ish) and core temp is about 60c so they're seperated by a similar margin. i believe AMD overdrive uses algorithms to 'estimate' the core temperature so may be a few degrees off. at lower temps, the on-die sensor isn't very accurate but its accuracy improves with load.

hmm I don't think I fully understand what you said but I think I get most of what you said. I am watercooling this so I don't expect it to get anywhere above 40C....if it was air cooled then yes I would expect about 50 to 60C....

EDIT:
Also, how does that answer my question? :p
