You can see the OSD in this pic with the temps for my four cores.
The Thermoflow fans have a thermistor on it to read air temp. They have a lead for mobo monitoring and a four pin connector for power. You may want to use it for the case and move a fan that can be controlled by the mobo to the CPU.
I wouldn't use the core temps. Unless my system is running extremely cool, these temps are way off.
On my system the core temps are 10 to 15C lower than my "CPU" temp, and the CPU temp is what is reported in the BIOS.
I just turned on Orthos and my CPU temp is 55C. The core temps are both at 44C. Considering my overclock, 44C seems a bit low.
I'd like to believe that, but I'd rather play it safe unless I'm 100% sure that the "CPU" temp is wrong.
EDIT: Right now my CPU is idling at 28C. The Core temps are at 20. Its about 80 degrees F in my room right now.
