Up till now i've been using AMD Overdrives temperature readings during prime95.

But I seem to be hitting 60 degrees quite easy.

I decided to check temps with Core Temp and CPUID HW, but they give me much lower temps.
AMD Overdrive says 40 degrees on idle.
Core Temp and CPUID give me 30 degrees.

Now I'm not sure which one is right.

I have a Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD5 mainboard. I read the UD3 had some incompatibility with AMD overdrive, but I could not find anything on UD5.
Does anyone know which temperature readings I can trust.?

I'd trust coretemp, hwmonitor and bios before I trust overdrivels temp readings, especially after unlocking cores
It had my X4 B35 at -257'c, relocked the fourth core, back to normal temps,
I would say uninstall it tbh
