More about temps
  1. I just built a PC with a Athlon X 3 440 and the core temps are lower than the room temp, I don't think this is possible but I think they are always lower than the CPU temp on AMD chips (they are on all 3 of the systems I built by 7-12C). I have always gone by the CPU temp when overclocking but I have always unlocked cores which disables the core temps anyway. Hope this helps.

    The temps that you see in programs like AID64, HWMonitor or Coretemp have a ~10ºC difference of the real temp.
