The one labled PROCESSOR or CORE.
The TEMP01 etc are the socket temps. They are usually +-1* of CORE though so if you have an unlocked core then these are the values you look at.

CPUz is right under the CPU Core temp display.

Under TEMP the CPU and Motherboard are general temp readings. The CPU is the socket temp, basically the thermoresister on the mainboard that sits under the socket is giving that reading. The Motherboard reading is from another thermoresister on the board that gives the MoBo temp reading. This is usually at or slightly above ambient.

The one with your CPU name (FX-6300) is your Processor reading. This is taken directly from the CPU die and is referred to as the 'core' temp (as it takes the readings from the cores on the die). This is the one you want to really pay attention to. While the SOCKET temp (listed above under TEMP) will be higher because of all of the other electronics that live under the socket, it is the CORE temp that you need to watch.

Bingo. Thats the socket and core! The socket is a good reference for how hot the TOTAL area of the proc is. It gets quite toasty.
If you ever have a 0*reading for your core temps, that is the next best thing to go off of. It is never lower then the core temp.
