Incorrect CPU Temps?...

The other day I was wondering what my CPU temperatures where like and I found this program called "CoreTemp" on the internet. I downloaded it and saw that my temperatures where very low. Even I know that a CPU should be much warmer than 25C even when idling(mine was when the temps where measured).
Is there something wrong with my CPU or how the temperatures are being read. My CPU is an AMD Phenom II x6 1055T at stock speeds, using the heatsink it came with in the box.

Thanks in advance for any help.

My CPU idles as 30 deg with a stock cooler, and at 45 deg on 60% load.

Is your CPU fan set to adjust speed as it gets hotter or does it run full speed all the time. my is set to be running full speed all the time.

if you case has good air flow, it will reduce your temp as well.

If its cool then its probably a good thing. :)
