Default Core Temp and EasyTune 5 giving me way different temps...

Hi, I downloaded Coretemp a couple weeks ago and I thought it was giving me accurate numbers but I'm not so sure now. While playing music and having a couple IE7 windows open, my CPU temps on Core Temp are floating around 35C all they time.

However, if I open up Easy Tune5 which is what came with my Gigabyte DS3 965p mobo, it says I'm 27C.

I'm guessing I should be relying on Easy Tune5 for my temps since it's made for my mobo obviously. What do you guys think?

i think you should turn it off, let everything cool down for awhile.
then turn everything on, go into bios and check cpu temp.
exit bios and load windows. let everything settle down (ie load desktop, etc), and then check the two programs. closest to the bios reading wins.
