The Foxconn software is reading the CPU temperature off of the motherboard sensor and HWMonitor is reading your core temperatures. The core temperatures are the ones that are more important to watch. I'd use Core Temp instead of HWMonitor since it doesn't seem to have the wide variance of HWMonitor. I've set polling to 5 sec in both and ended up with a 5C difference under normal loading (30-50% core usage), kinda strange IMO. Core Temp also is in line with Everest, where HWMonitor is still off (2 outta 3 monitoring programs match, get rid of the one that is off).

EDIT: Actually, I think this will answer your question a lot better. Basically your TJMax is set incorrectly in HWMonitor so it is reporting the wrong temperature.

I'm guessing that all the temp programs are picking up the temps wrong , all of them show about the same but the Foxx com proggy. And If I run foxx com at the same time as other temp proggys , FC fails and I get a high pitch whine.

Oh yeah, I am using Air Cooling.
And I also use HWMonitor to check the temp.
That is impossible.

A cpu cannot idle lower than room ambient on aircooling. Your temp monitoring programs are wrong. They need to be calibrated

I guess I have a hard time understanding how to

It just has different TJMax temps.

Also, idle temps are never really accurate which is why they can seem sub ambient. Sensors are only good for reading load temps.
