    Speed fan is a pretty good program.

    From what i think know, :)

    Core temp is taken inside the actual processor.

    Cpu temp is taken from between the heatsink and fan.

    Sorry for the late reply, Cpu is more reliable in my experience.

    You can compare your speedfan results with your bios temp monitor results to see how they compare for piece of mind if you wish :)

    It seems there may be nothing wrong with what you're seeing, the core temp will always be higher than your cpu temp. Which ever program you're using just compare it to bios temps, usually they are most reliable.
