If you have 10 software for monitoring the pc temps. no one will read the same temps. If the temps seems to be normal tham everything is ok.

The temperature of each individual core is what you should be paying attention to.

The temperature of the CPU heat spreader tends not to mean anything at all.

they read the same temps for the cores, but Core Temp seems to just show the temp for the cores, HW in the other hand has another reading for cpu, my question is if i should give importance to the core temps or the cpu

I've just answered that question.

The core temperatures are the only important ones.

so the best program is Core Temp? since it shows the temps for the cores, which tend to be the same with Hardware Monitor
