I have just literally built my very first PC and am booting it for the first time (for some reason my Windows 8 still works even though I thought I would have to re-install with my DVD...) and was wondering what is a more accurate prediction of my CPU temperature.
In UEFI Bios, it says my temperature at idle is ~45-48C. However on HWMonitor this is what it says:
with the "package" temp fluctuating between 11-21C but usually staying around 13 or 14.
I am curious why the differences are big and which one is more accurate as well as if I should get a cooler if this is too hot for idle (with some browsing).

12℃ is probably lower than your room temp. That's unlikely.
Speedfan is another tool than can report temperatures.
