I was recently doing some benchmarks and I noticed Coretemp and speedfan read 10* higher than realtemp and everest. 10* difference would make my idle temps pretty awful, should I be concerned or is this just a software issue?

speedfan reads 36* idle/ 58* load
coretemp reads 34* idle/ 56* load

realtemp reads 24* idle/ 44* load
everest reads 21* idle/ 42* load
hardware monitor (came with motherboard) reads 24* idle 44* load

also, the PWM fan isn't under much load, for gaming it may spin up a little bit but it hasn't gone "full speed" at all since I got a different case with better airflow.

I'm assuming that the motherboard uses the bios temp readings and is probably the most correct? if it was hitting 36* idle and 58* load the fan would probably be going all out because I have it set through bios to shut off at 60* and the auto controller is set to be sensitive and aggressive on the cooling.

but I want to make sure I'm not roasting my new chip, either.

*EDIT* for the nit pickers my room temperature is controlled at about 19-20*c and I used occt to load the system. Idle has no open programs and I have virtually nothing running in the background.

most likely software...it all depends what TJMax they use

edit:...you can check that in each of the programs BTW

Try to use the latest versions of the programs you use.
RealTemp, CoreTemp, HW Monitor, and Everest all in sync for me.
Speedfan is always 5-7c different for me.

Just to clarify for the OP -
the chip doesn't actually report temp, it reports "distance from TJMax" - problem is, TJMax isn't clear for every chip, so each program guesses differently.

As stated, the latest versions all get it pretty much right..
