Question about CPU Temps

I'm having trouble determening which temperature I need to be focused on. I'm using CPUID Hardware Monitor, Speedfan and Realtemp. In all three it shows the temperatures of each core which is 32c/idle 52c/Max. Now in HWM and Speedfan I have an unknown temperature. Also the same number is listed under ACPI in HWM, at idle its 25c but with a load it shoots up to around 60-65ish, on occassion it'll go to 68 for a second. No matter what I run the system at, that temperature is about the same. Stock or overclocked, it rarely will change. Question is, is that my temp of the cpu die, should I be alarmed.

Specs,
Biostar G41-DVI
E7500 321x11 3.5ghz <--2.5v on one core, apparently 1.6 or so on the second. Cannot change this for some reason

  1. Your temps are fine, nothing to worry about. The core temps are the main concern.

    The ACPI temp may be from a MB sensor, usually around the pcie socket, but I have never had a need to track it down to determine it's exact location or worried about any readings except the core temps using Coretemp or Realtemp and have never done in a MB.
  2. Dude... get a new cooler.
    ive got a E7600 And i havent oc'd it that far without stability issues. ur either a legend or just plain crazy. keep up the good work man!:D
  3. Quote:
    68C occasionally. Well, yes, get a new cooler.

    As the OP has stated, he is getting 52c MAX core temps, in what world is this too high. ;)
