Windows 7: AIDA64 and CPU Temperature

AIDA64 and CPU Temperature

Quick question:

I just downloaded the trial version of AIDA64 Extreme Edition v1.70 (LOVING it!), but the temperature display confuses me; Which one is the temperature I should be concerned with for my core2quad: CPU or CPU #1-4?

I started overclocking my computer again due to games running sluggish. My temps from idle to full load for CPU is ~36-57C and for CPU #1-4 is ~49-65C.

Which temperature(s) should I be concerned with??? Why is the 'overall' CPU temp so much lower than each individual one? Sensor placement???

about half way down the first post, he explains how the temp sensors in those chips work.

CPU Temperature
Okay, I bought my new computer with Windows 7 Home Basic (aaargghhh!!!) and it runs great. I like the gadgets but have a question. My CPU temperature is about 140 degrees, and when I run a high-tech game it rises to 160 degrees. It runs fine, but is this what the rest of you are getting?
