So I have been wondering as too which CPU temp to go by when trying to check my system. Is it cpu core temp or cpu temp. Currently I'm using HWmonitor and it says my mobo TMPIN1 temp idles at 47c and maxes at 52c which if I'm not mistaken is my CPU temp while my cpu core temps are idling at 35c and max at 44c
I've also checked them using Coretemp and it says my cpu idles at 35c as well.
Which should I follow, my cpu core temps or Cpu temps?
I have an ASUS M4A785-M mobo and a stock Phenom II x4 920.
