FX8350 Heating question

Hi Guys,
I have a AMD FX-8350 processor with MSi motherboard. there is a control center utility with the mother board. the CPu temp shown in the utility is 57c(idle). I downloaded the HWINFO64 where thr CPU 0 temp is 33c max is 42.8c. My room temp is around 26-27c.
Which application should I trust. The MSI app also controls the CPU fan Speed and the fan is quite loud. What do you think? should I trust HWINFO64 or the MSI control app.
HWINFO the temp is good. but MSI app tell me that CPU is overheating!

  1. What cooler?
  2. Stock cooler.
    While waiting for the reply I also downloaded core temp there too I get max 35 and min 32.
  3. HWINFO is decent

    Hwmonitor is garbage don't go with that.

    MSI is probably a little off.
  4. http://www.aida64.com/ < Use the trial for a few , check temps with this
  5. CPU shows as 57 c but CPU #1 to CPU #8 all of them show 33 c. What does it mean? this is with the S/w you suggested.Aida64
  6. Go by core 1,2,3,4 what do they say.
  7. I trust AIDA that's why I pay for it.
  8. By core all of them are @ 33~34c. if this is the case then MSI is off by 25c. CPU fan is @5050 RPM.
  9. Best answer
    I would say MSI is wrong.
  10. Ok as it controls my fan speeds how do I reduce it or automatically increase it ? is there a software that I can download?
  11. Speedfan.
  12. Called up MSI tech Support, by the way it sucks, they admitted that adia64 is correct and their s/w is wrong. :) Also the tech determined that the motherboard was faulty (pin header) so he suggested me to have the mobo replaced! I prefer Asus and their customer support is good too is this mobo good for gaming? ASUS M5A97 R2.0 Socket AM3+ ATX AMD Motherboard ?
    I have a radeon HD 7790 I want put in money once and be good for 3 yrs.
  13. Yes that's a good ASUS board.
