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?
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.
