AMD Overdrive or Coretemp Temperatures?

In coretemp, my Idle Temperature is about 18C but on AMD Overdrive it says they are 28C, which one is more accurate? Btw my processor is an AMD Athlon II x3 455

  1. 18°C is probably wrong unless you live in a very cold environment! 28°C would be a very good idle temp for most!

    My idle temps were that before I got my CPU Cooler (Xigmatek Gaia sd 1283), so I think the CoreTemp is right but still not positive.
  3. 18°C is equal to 64.4°F if you are colder than that with you ambient then I would be surprised. Rule of thumb is that idle temps with air cooler is 10-15°C over ambient temp!
