I Have been using Coretemp to monitor my CPU temps as i worked my multipliers up and gamed (BF3). I OC'd my FX 6100 to 4Ghz without adjusting voltage but I want to go higher. My temp has never reached above 38C during BF3 and 32 during PCMark. I have an H60 Corsair cooler.
I haven't read anyone else having such low temps even at idle. (If i leave my PC on with nothing going on on it, it will idle around 15C, according to to Core temp). When I have the BIOS up it usually reads nearer to 30C.
Should I trust Core Temp 1.0 or is there a more reliable way to check temps before continuing?

those temps are not accurate. you cant have an idle temp below ambient unless your room is like 10*c.
use hwmonitor to check temps.
