    Everything is fine, use it as normal.

    Everything is fine, run prime 95 when asleep let thermal paste cure/burn in

    Something's not right, should probably reinstall HSF/reapply thermal paste

Hey everyone I had just ran prime 95 test in blend for an hour and I got some strange results and I wonder whether this is normal or not.
I used both Speedfan and HW Monitor but they display different results.Does anyone know which of the two is the correct temperature reading?

HW Monitor
Lowest ~32C
Highest ~50C
Speedfan
Lowest ~20 C
Highest ~ 40C
End result:
HW Monitor
Core 0 42 C
core 1 45 C
core 2 47C
core 3 47 C
Speed fan
Core 0 30C
Core 1 33C
core 2 36c
core 3 36c

Also it seems strange the cores have different temperatures which does vary by quite a bit. I currently have a Noctua NH-D14 and I use the included NT-H1 thermal paste. My ambient temperature is ~18.5C-~24C (~65F-~75F). I also want to mention that everything is current running on stock. An observation I made was that the average temperature through out the test was decreasing. My guess for this is that the thermal paste was requires a curing/burn in period? Though I haven't heard of the NT-H1 requiring any of that. So I need some opinions advice, feel free to comment and vote in the poll.

um well i agree that it very wierd that the core temps vary by a lot if you have win7 download core temp gadget and see if it is consistent i have it and i know for a fact that is 99% accurate; my suggestion run prime overnight while having the core temp gadget installed (it automatically keeps a log like every minute of cpu temps and run it over night and see whats happening)

Just use CoreTemp or RealTemp for measuring your cores temperatures.
They'll display the right temps always.
