So, I dusted off my FX-8350 and Crosshair-V Formula non-Z, and Corsair H80i. Decided to not OC it for now, but have become rather curious by the temps. CPU temp under the motherboard reads 35C-ish while idle, but under the 8350 section, it shows a cool 16C idle. Which of these do I believe? I can't remember. XD

Also, this chip is such a little trooper. He was locked up in a closet for over a year and has been ready to play ever since I dusted him off. :D Shame I have no case to put him in at the moment.

The idle will never be very accurate for AM3+

The Package temperature sensor will only become accurate above 45C, i've had mine report as low as 9C while in a 20C room, so it's safe to say it's a bit off below 45 ^_^.

That's what I thought I remembered, but wanted to run it past you guys for confirmation. Still, while running at a measly 4GHz, it rarely goes above 50C on the Package or the board sensor.

Benchmark Scores it sucks even less much now ;)
for any temp under 45 you add +20 to it for a reasonable approximation of the actual temp so your 16°C becomes 36°C which is close to what you see in the CPUID window under the top results list
