FX8350 - Monitoring temp for each core?

Hi, this is my first time using this forum so let me know if I'm doing something wrong.

I would like to know how to monitor each of my FX 8350's cores temperature. I'm using HWMonitor just now and under FX8350/Temperature it only has package and the temperature is way off at 2min 4-12avg at idel. Under Temperatures/CPU it seems to be right as I have checked with Bios temp monitor.

I have tried coretemp as well and is only showing the off temps.

I just upgraded from a Phenom 965 and HWMonitor worked just fine for that.

Specs:
-FX8350 @ stock
-GTX 780 @ stock
-8Gb DDR3 1600
-Asus M5A99x EVO rev 2.0/ Bios version 1903
-Corsair GS600
-Win 8.1 Pro

Any help would be appreciated.

Best solution

AMD processors have 1 temp monitor for all cores so you cannot monitor core temps individually, but you can monitor individual core usage.

Max temps for FX processors are;
Socket = 71c
Core = 61.1c

oh, didn't know that. My 965 had 4 but they were probably the same. Thanks

K10 (Athlon, Phenom etc.) only have 1 sensor for all cores, not 1 for each core, so what you saw was a flaw in the software somehow. Check out the other thread for more details :)

I'm having the same issue as the OP. In this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MckeAmnDeTk you can see him inspecting the temps of all 8 'cores' in HWMonitor.

I think is just displaying the one core temp as 8 separate temps(each core temp is all the same). My old 965 showed 4 core temps as well, might just be a glitch.

Ah yes, good point. Thanks.
