high temperatures

“Problem” is-different temperatures.
3rd party software(HW Monitor) shows very high temperatures to cpu and system:
CPU:Core#0 +55C-idle and +70C load
Core#1 +46C-idle and +60C load
Core#2 +52C-idle and +65C load
Core#3 +58C-idle and +70C load

system temperature:+39C idle and +46C load
cpu temperature: +33C idle and +39C load

gpu +51C idle and +68C load

BIOS vF11:
System temperature +39C idle and +45C load
cpu temperature: +33C idle and +39C load

Question is:Should I believe 3rd party software or EasyTune6/BIOS information?

I can only assume that each software package has its own way of measuring temps.
They all are in it to make money. Even if it is only a small piece of the pie.
A good example of this ...........Why are there so many AV programs out there?
You could go on and on about comparing apples to oranges but I am sure you get the point.

You might want to check on Power Supply and fan speed if you think you are in danger. IMHO

Per Howling Wolves post, if you Google "diode vs. socket CPU temps" you'll find some articles that may inform.
