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

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.

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!
