Have you adjusted your TJ max in core temp? Once you have core temp gives out a more accurate reading than speedfan and should serve you well.

I generally swear by CoreTemp. I did use Speedfan for a while however I find that CoreTemp updates quicker and is more accurate.

I think it's under tools or options for core temp. You should be able to see TJ max in one of the menu options.

If you setup core temp properly it should show temps for all 4 cores. The CPU is (if I'm not mistaken) the average temp of the 4 cores.

Always using CoreTemp. It's easier to use than SpeedFan, updates quicker than the second one. If I want to read my mobo temps or something like that, I would use other program, not only one just like speedfan.

Core Temp is much more accurate and light. Plus it has that nice tool on the bottom bar that lets u minimize it while showing the temperatures.
