AMD FX-8350 Temperature

I just built a new system using an ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z motherboard, an AMD FX-8350 CPU, and a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO cooler. No overclocking or anything yet. I have ran 4 different temp monitoring software and it's 50/50 on which are correct. Here is what I am seeing at idle:

CoreTemp and AMD Overdrive are both showing between 15-20C
SpeedFan and ASUS Probe II are both showing around 35-36C

I'm not sure which one to believe. Are two of them getting the sensor in the socket and the other two the CPU itself? Any idea which is which??

  1. 20C is less than room temperature. Need I say more?
  2. 20C is approximately what my room temp is...around 20-21 give or take. It's cooler than the rest of my house, which is about 22-23C
  3. 15C is still colder. Normal cooling solutions can't physically bring the CPU's temps below ambient temps.
  4. 35-36 seems reasonable. I would go with that.

    Newer AMD CPUs have odd temp sensors some of which read very low.

    Use your mobos utility program that monitors your components. HWmonitor and Coretemp don't show an accurate cpu temperature while my gigabyte utility easytune will. For my situation I have to figure 12C more from whatever Hw and coretemp show me.

    Edit: Forgot to mention I'm using a 8350 with a GA-970a-UD3
