Hi all, I just tried to give my phenom II 1055t a light overclock (2.8 --> 3.33) with no voltage adjustment and I'm now running prime95 for about an hour (still running...)
I used speedfan to monitor my temps and it really got me confused when the core temps are about 43-44C (I'm using stock cooler) while the CPU temp hits 60C. So which one are we usually talking about when it comes to something like "... temps below 60C and you're fine"????
SpeedFan I don't like so much. However, it's a bit odd that your cores are colder than the CPU. It's possible that by CPU it really means NB... I don't know, all mobos seem to have different temp sensors.
Like CrysisComa said, try HWMonitor and/or CoreTemp or RealTemp
