Coretemp & Overclocking

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.

A72F room is 22C. That's still pretty cool for idle.

Might as well download both HWMonitor and RealTemp.

And have you tested stability with a CPU test such as Prime 95 or Intel Burn Test? They'll truly test your overclock and your temps/cooling.

Don't run multiple temperature monitoring programs at the same time as that can give you inaccurate readings. I like HWMontier.

Okay so which temperature should I concern myself with on HWMonitor?

Has temps for all six cores and "TEMPIN 0, TEMPIN1, TEMPIN2"
