Core temp confusion

i downloaded core temp 0.99.7 and i am confused at what the cpu temp is reading

i got a amd phenom 2 x4 945 3.0ghz cpu

it shows 4 frequencies #0, #1, #2, #3

temperature readings
#0 at 29`C....and thats all it #1, #2, #3

is that only reading from the first core or is it overall cores?

or is it not compatible with the x4 processor or something?

    Coretemp isn't accurate for all motherboards or windows versions. I stopped using it. You may have some software that came with your motherboard. Search the cd under utilities. You really don't need to monitor the cpu temp unless you've increased the voltage for overclocking. I set the shutdown temp at 70c in the bios, and forget about it.
  2. You should try speedfan, it tends to be more accurate.
