AIDA64 or CPUID for temperature readings

Hey guys,

I have been monitoring the temperature of the CPU cores (A8-6500) on both AIDA64 and CPUID and have been getting fairly different readings.

Just to keep it simple, I will only mention the temperatures on idle on which CPUID says around 30 celcius. On very light load (typical internet browsing and youtube videos), it shoots up to around 40-45 celcius which seems far too excessive even for a stock fan.

But on AIDA64, all 4 cores give a much better reading of around 10-15 celcius on idle and shoots upto 20-25 celcius on light load.

So what do you guys think is more accurate and reliable?
