In my bios it says my core temperature is 34c and the ambient is 40c. In "coretemp.exe" it says my core temp is 46c.

Specs in sig. Which should I trust?

There's two temperature readings...

i'd trust the core readings.

KK thanks. They're the same as coretemp.exe is reporting.

Intel provides separate thermal specifications for 2 different sensor types; a single Case Thermal Diode located within the CPU die between the Cores, and Digital Thermal Sensors located within each Core. The Case Thermal Diode measures Tcase (Temperature Case), which is commonly known as CPU temp, and the Digital Thermal Sensors measure Tjunction (Temperature Junction), which is commonly known as Core temp. Since these sensors measure 2 distinct thermal levels, there is a constant temperature difference between them, which is referred to as Tcase to Tjunction Delta. C2Q’s have 1 Tcase and 4 Tjunction sensors, while C2D’s have 1 Tcase and 2 Tjunction sensors.

Thank you; That's very useful info!
