Phenom X4 965 3.4Ghz (not OC'ed)
Zalman 9500A cooler + Arctic Silver 5
Antec 1200

Was rendering a video in Sony Vegas.


Why is there a CPU temp and a Core temp, whats the difference?
Also can anyone tell me what the other temps mean?

Thats hot i think you could improve by getting a better cpu cooler but your cpu will survive those temps just it might shorten lifetime.

rendering a video will take the temps up or sure as its putting load on the hardware.

before buying a new cooler i would take the old on off, clean off the old thermal paste from the cpu and cooler and do a fresh install of that cooler with fresh paste it might be the paste thats totally used up or just faded out giving high temps. paste is FAR cheaper to buy if thats your problem and if its not and it is the cooler you need new paste anyway for that, so either way its all good

Core temps are reported from sensors inside the CPU chip.
CPU temp is usually an external sensor outside the CPU chip and one of the motherboard sensors

I don't think you have anything to worry about there.
51C while running under a heavy load is not a bad result and you seem to have the temps under pretty good control.

I figured out what the problem was, one being its pretty warm in my room, and also I had the CPU cooler fan speed at the lowest, so i turn it up from 1358 to 2033 rpm and that did the trick :)

That's an even better result.
What's the overall system cooling sound like? Any noticeable difference?
