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!

HWINFO is decent

Hwmonitor is garbage don't go with that.

MSI is probably a little off.

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

By core all of them are @ 33~34c. if this is the case then MSI is off by 25c. CPU fan is @5050 RPM.

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.
